Questions to Answer About a Credit Card Reward Program

Questions to Answer About a Credit Card Reward Program

As you search for a credit card with a reward program, you’ll be glad to find that there are hundreds of offers to choose from.

As a consumer (or small business owner), you must answer one very important question: which credit card is best for what you’re trying to accomplish?

The only way to answer this question with confidence is to compare multiple offers and make a final decision based on your findings. Here are some of the most important questions to address:

•    What is the one thing (or things) that makes the program stand out from the crowd?
•    What are you able to use the points for? Do you prefer cash back rewards vs points?
•    Will your points ever expire, or can you hold onto them until they are finally used?
•    Are there any negatives associated with the credit card, such as a high annual fee?
•    What are other consumers saying about the offer?

Some of these questions are simple to answer, while others will require a bit of digging on your part.

When you address these questions, among others, it becomes much easier to decide on the credit card that’s best for you and your finances.

Not every credit card has a reward program, but those that do are extremely popular. With this feature, you will get something in return for every dollar you spend.

Your only job is to choose the program that best suits you, as you want to feel good about the decision you made.

Each credit card should serve a unique purpose. I always ask what I will use the credit card for and make my decision based on that.
