Rewards Credit Card Recommendations

You guys recommend any particular rewards cards?

Considering :
Amex Premier Rewards Gold Card
Chase Sapphire
Capital One Venture

Primarily seeking travel rewards.

You better be nice to America or we will bring democracy to your country.

I have been using Capital One for about a year and so far so good. I don't know if it has the best $spent to miles gained but, you can use it for flights, hotel and car rental expenses. Plus, it doesn't have an annual fee.

Take care and ride safe,
Brian

I just use my Amex Black card, primarily to impress the young SWBs. When I hit Dunkin Donuts and pick up a dozen or so, I throw that out there and the bitches swoon.

Chase freedom, free and gives me cash not miles every month. Not sure if the best rewards percentage out there, but as a net to my wallet it works for me.

I need a free credit card, with great rewards, extended terms (like life) at no interest.

No interest is easy , pay the statement balance. I know that was sarcasm, but some are oblivious to that fact.

Discover FTW. Every month there is a different category of purchase that bumps the rewards from 1% to 5%. Shit adds up quick.

Chase does this as well, but instead of monthly, it's quarterly.
