I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).

For many years the Fidelity Investment Rewards credit card has been one of the strongest cash back products. No annual fee cards offering 2% back don’t usually come with signup bonuses. However via Doctor of Credit there’s a limited-time bonus for the card through December 31.

The offer is $100 after $1000 spend on the card (which also earns you $20 of course) within 90 days.

The Citi Double Cash Card doesn’t require a Fidelity account to get this level of rebate, and Capital One® Spark® Cash for Business offers similar returns as a small business card while coming with an even bigger signup bonus (but an annual fee that hits after year one).

    Current Offer: Enjoy a one-time $500 cash bonus once you spend $4,500 on purchases within 3 months from account opening.
    Earning: Earning unlimited 2% cash back could mean thousands of dollars each year going back into your business. Rewards won’t expire for the life of the account, and you can redeem your cash back for any amount
    Annual Fee: $0 intro annual fee for the first year; $95 after that
    Foreign Transaction Fee: None

Alliant Credit Union Visa Signature offers 3% cash back the first year then 2.5%. Also that the Discover IT card will give you 3% back for a year.

  4. Find it shocking after billions of dollars in spending for security screening
    how many times my carry on is searched when I’m traveling with chocolate
    The TSA cannot determine the difference between weapons and chocolate ?
    One of the same?
    And my Rock Revial Jeans hands are groping around my privates
    Again concealed weapon hunt because of ornamentation on jeans?
    And if that proves 100% wrong at every inspection
    How do they ever know what it is going through the check point
    TSA is a mighty expensive failure but I suppose it’s better than nothing ?
