non-reward credit cards still exist?

Postby Multi-Purpose » Sat Nov 01, 2008 1:11 am

Do they still exist? In this age I don't know any major credit cards which don't offer some kind of points or rewards. It has almost became a necessity today for credit cards to offer some kind of reward incentive for people to want to use them.

I know some of the entry level cards for below average credit don't offer rewards but you're right, for the most part credit cards have become all about the rewards now.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know why. If you can get paid for your spending you might as well do it.

What we are seeing more of these days are the cards that give higher rewards for different types of spending. This is a heck of a lot better than getting only 1% which ain't diddly squat for most people.

Yeah I love rewards. I don't know to many cards which do not offer at least 1% cash back or something. Maybe when you credit is bad you may be able to get something without rewards. Anyhow Amex has the best rewards :ppp

I think the 1% has become the new standard. Even the low interest credit cards still offer 1% cashback.

Who would want a non reward card when in 2008? That is the whole reason I use a card is for rewards

Just like no one wants cards w/o rewards the next fad will be no one wanting cards with only 1% rewards. Soon everyone will begin to expect higher rewards. I guess that's a good thing for us though. :)
