When it comes to choosing a cash back credit card, what cards rank at the top or your list? While the answer will be different for everyone, a common factor in determining the top card that will take residence in your pocketbook is perceived value.


Recently the folks here at CreditCardGuide.com wrote an article entitled "Editor’s Pick: Best Cash Back Credit Cards 2010" that breaks down a couple of the hottest plastic available to consumers. While there were many to choose from, those that made the list offer cardholders not only great rewards but also great value. The top choices included both of the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Cards, the Chase Freedom MasterCard, the PenFed Visa Platinum Cashback Rewards Card as well as a couple of others. In all, these cards are not only highly popular among current cardholders but they have also changed the way that issuers develop reward cards.


As stated earlier there are many reward cards available that have great deals when it concerns getting cash back. When applying for any credit card, one important thing to remember is to always make sure you read and understand the terms and any other paperwork that is associated with the card. While getting rewards is great, if you don’t completely understand any fees or other cost associated with the card it could cost you than the price of your original purchase. In addition to that, it could negate any rewards that you have accumulated to a certain point.
