    I’m an avid fan of the Target debit card. Use it every time I go. Paring this 5% back with a coupon or two definitely makes shopping there cheaper than anything else (even Walmart).

    Unfortunately, the target card won’t give you five percent back on gift card/prepaid purchases. 🙁

      @Sam – Our family use the Target card every time we go to Target. Probably the best deal if you’re going to shop there.

    I’ve used several of the above credit cards and been very happy with them overall.

    I quite like all of these reward cards except they are geared to make us spend more and stay in debt to the card. However, people who want to accumulate the rewards can save for an event like Christmas and have a ready supply of money

    I like using the Fideltiy rewards American Express. I always get 2% back on all of my purchases. It has worked great for me.

  5. Derek Knight says:

    I have an MBNA card, and they give the cash back via cheque whenever it reaches the $50.00 milestone. They send them in discreet looking envelopes that I almost always think is junk mail before opening. They also imitate the look of those silly cash back cheques they send hoping that people will use them.
    I wonder how often these are thrown out or recycled because of these tactics?

  6. I am bad with reward cards. I tend to spend more on my cards in an effort to earn more rewards forgetting about the interest rates that are getting tacked on if I don’t pay off the balance in full!

    Does anyone know anything about the new Chase Liquid card? Is it a credit card or a prepaid debit card? Can you get great cash back deals on it like these cards?

    good to see such special offers at one place which is useful for the people. Thanks

    I just learned recently that my aunt is a loyal customer of Target because it is nearer her place and she uses Target REDcard, which she loves because of the cashback she receives from her purchases.

  9. PJ says:

    If the supermarket let you buy $500 denomination MasterCard, Visa, or Amex gift cards with the 5% reward credit card for $5.95 fees you now have a credit card that pays you back ~4% good anywhere that a debit card is accepted.

  10. Cherleen says:

    The rewards are very tempting. But we have learned our lesson. We have decided to stick with one card alone so that we can pay it off at the end of the month.

  11. Jonathan says:

    I just received my credit card statement and it’s always fab when you see just how much you’ve built up in rewards, which I can now go and spend!!!!!! Love it. I get my rewards direct off my annual bill, rather than discounts on amazon or gas.
