Financial Rewards Credit CardsWhen it comes to reward credit cards that give cash back have you considered plastic that can be attached to brokerage accounts? While for some consumers this type of plastic does not seem that appealing at the moment, for many others it has been a serious thought that can end up paying off in the long run. As they have been getting more attention over the last 12 months financial reward cards are drawing much more then consumers that invest on a regular basis. Many newer cardholders have chosen this plastic as a way to save for the future by simply charging what they would have spent anyway on everyday purchases. By paying off the balances at the end of the month, the rewards are not negated and build up over time.


So have you been researching for the best financial rewards credit cards? If so, what is at the top of your list? While there are many to choose from, there a couple of cards that seems to stand out above the rest.  Each offers the cardholder something a little different, but both offer valuable rewards that have the potential to pay off big in the long run. They can be found in an article entitled "Editor’s Pick: Best Financial Rewards Credit Cards 2010". The two that are mentioned within this article are the Bank of America Upromise Card and the Fidelity Rewards American Express Cards. While the Upromise Card is connected to accounts that can help fund your child’s education, the Fidelity Rewards Card (which has three different offers) gives you the ability to do the same or direct the funds to an IRA account. In all, while these offers may be a little difficult to get approved for by some, for those that are able to get a hold of any of these plastics it is well worth it.
