Article Body:
Reward credit cards or loyalty cards earn their owners certain incentives in terms of cash back or
redeemable reward points. These benefits and reward points keep mounting as more charges are applied to
the card, i.e. more you spend more you get. The best-known reward cards are those that offer frequent flyer
miles or cash based upon the amount of purchases made with the card. There are numerous companies that
offer you ‘fantastic’ or ‘unbeatable rewards’ for the privilege of providing you with their credit card,
however, whichever card you use should be chosen carefully.


<b>Annual Fees</b>


Convenience users or people who use credit cards for frequent purchases reap the maximum benefit out of
reward credit cards. Many of these reward credit cards come with an annual fee, sometimes higher
depending on your ‘reward’ level. This fee should be taken into consideration when estimating any future
reward level. Consider the kinds of reward schemes being offered and the minimum amount you need to
spend each month in order to avail the reward bonuses. Analyze your spending habits, since the level of
spending determines the level of benefits earned.


<b>Golden Rule of Reward Cards</b>


There is one golden rule concerning any type of reward card, whether it be an affinity credit card or cash
back, you must pay the balance in full every month. If you do leave a balance and interest accrues on this it
will negate all benefits that you received from the card, in fact it could end up costing you more in interest
than you earn with rewards.


<b>Which Reward Card?</b>
These credit cards do not just earn you flyer miles. You can earn reward points redeemable against
discounted or in some cases free gasoline, gift certificates for merchandise at particular retailers or for
general online use, and even discounts on your next automobile. Though free flyer miles might lure you to
buy an air miles reward card but ultimately if you do not fly frequently enough to redeem those miles, you
will be at a loss. However, on the other hand cash back or discount points card could be more beneficial to
raise a sloping budget.


<b>Conclusion</b>


In general choosing the correct reward card for your needs is probably the most difficult decision that
visitors face when choosing a credit card. Most other types of credit card are simple enough to choose,
whether it is a balance transfer card, an introductory 0% purchase rate or an adverse credit card. However,
with the reward card you must be able to pay the balance in full, calculate the annual fee cost then, estimate
your spending level and then calculate your estimated rewards.
