We have created this wiki as a place for users to insert suggestions for new cards, or to request that cards linked in the original thread should be taken down. We will edit the first post AT LEAST every other week, probably much more frequently.

Citibank Double Cash MasterCard - 2% cash back (1% when you buy, 1% when you pay). No caps, no annual fee. Only real snag is that the DO have Foreign Transaction Fees.

NerdWallet has a decent lookup [nerdwallet.com] that lets you choose the type of card and filter by credit rating and features. Worth checking for current info, that's where I saw the above:

icardbonus.com has probably the most complete, although a bit outdated collection of credit card sign-up bonuses, grouped into personal, business, student and travel categories.

The credit card rewards calculator at creditcardtuneup.com will calculate expected annual rewards for your entered spending profile for many cards. It also calculates the best combinations of cards for your spending pattern.

Just a note, Discover 5% cash back is on rotating categories, might confuse some...
***9/05/13 Penfed sent notices to change 5% to 3% and add $25 annual fee if not combined with another qualifying penfed product****

A fairly up-to-date list of 0% no-fee cards is available at zeropercentbalance.com [zeropercentbalance.com]

The Penfed Visa Platinum Cashback Rewards card is only .25% on everything else but still is 5% on gas.

The latest version of the Discover It Card has no signup bonus****, but many pluses (review linky [dailymarkets.com]):
• You no longer only get 0.25% on 1st $3K spent as w/regular Discover. It's 1%.
• No annual fee
• And you get a different phone # w/quick access to U.S. agents.


****I just got the Discover It card, and if you know someone that has a discover card, a referral gives $50 to the both parties (referrer and referee). Referrer: After signup. Referee: After 1st purchase within 3 months.
OR: link to get a $75 Amazon Gift Card with first purchase within 3 months. Linky [discovercard.com] --moosepigeon

This thread's missing the best high-rewards college student card. Citi MTVu [citicards.com]. No annual fee, thank you points rewards, 5 points/$ for restaurants, bookstores, music stores, anything MTV related, movies, and video rentals. Plus, extra points for paying on time and getting good grades. 2000 points for straight As each semester!

My fiancee's had this card since college. It's amazing if you eat out once or twice a week. Pay off your credit card in full on time, and it's like having a 5% coupon every time you eat. Ridiculous.

Any one know if Schwab brokerage one account offers free transfer of funds to an external account like ING?
Yes they do. It's called Moneylink. Works well, I am very, very satisfied with my SchwabOne/HY Investor Checking/2% Investfirst.

that's almost similar to Citi forward. And citi forward is much better card because it gives you 11000 points as opening bonus + signing up for ebill.

thanks for the info.... but can you make a page like the 2009 Black friday product page? Looking at a long list of things where you can't order it based on whatever you are interested in is a real pain these days.

I wouldn't mind if slickdeals got money for people who signup from them either. As long as the info stays unbiased.

sdslick- I'll work on putting everything into a (unfortunately) non-sortable table... It's not perfect, but hopefully it will be easier for you guys to read.

Mint.com is one of the greatest sites I have come across in a long time; there should be a separate vault thread on it. But for the issue at hand, mint.com has a "ways to save" section, where it will find the best credit card for you, based on your spending (that it extracts automatically), whether or not you pay off your cards every month, and your credit score. Also gives you filters on the side for reward type, APR, etc...

The ones that have been turning up on top for me are:
Blue Cash from American Express
Escape by Discover Card
Chase Freedom℠
Discover More Card with $50 Cash Back Bonus

Hope this helps someone!

Dang, that's the one I was hoping to apply for and transfer $7000 to for 12 months... Did they tell you the amount you were approved for before you enter your transfer account info?

On Friday my Marriott credit card (visa I think) showed a $30 annual fee. I very nicely asked them to remove it. They told me they could not. So I closed it...

And today I applied for a Hilton Visa.

http://hhonorscard.com/us/cards/c...n/home.jsp

15,000 Hilton HHonors bonus points after making $150 in purchases within 2 months of account opening.

3 Hilton HHonors bonus points for each $1 spent at supermarkets, drugstores and gas stations.

No annual fee

Don't apply. I have no clue about balance transfer account info. I didn't know. I was just looking for doing purchases no balance transfers. I don't think they are will give you 12k limit. My credit score is around 750 range (just that you have an idea).

I applied today for the Citi Platinum Select MasterCard. After filling out info, it took about 1 min. and then said I was approved. $6300 limit and 0% balance transfer for 12 months. 3 % transfer fee will save me a lot to pay it off interest free this year and then I will be debt free!! Last time I saw my credit score was just over 700. Hope this helps.

I currently have a BofA Visa Financial Rewards Platinum Plus card, was wondering if there are any other Visa cards I can "upgrade" to that has a better cash back policy or perks. I don't want to open a new card for 2 reasons, this is the oldest CC and I already have too many CCs and don't want to add more to keep track of. Thanks

I'm confused on what you are saying. You are looking for a new card and dont want to open a new card.
