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icardbonus.com has probably the most complete, although a bit outdated collection of credit card sign-up bonuses, grouped into personal, business, student and travel categories.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

CardHub offers up-to-date summaries of credit card offers:
http://www.cardhub.com/best-credit-card-deals/

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

Chase Sapphire Reserve [link to offer] [chase.com]
- 100K points for $4,000 spend in first 3 months
- $300 travel credit
- $100 application fee credit for Global Entry or TSA Pre✔
- Complimentary Priority Pass™ Select membership (access to airport lounges)
- $450 annual fee not waived
- Each additional user costs another $75

Don't know. I guess maybe just generating traffic to their website...or maybe they will roll out the fees later, although it has been around for a while.

edit: Upon further research you may not be able to use amazon gift cards for amazon payments transfers. I couldn't find a definitive answer after a quick search. You may want to look further.

I'm about to buy an engagement ring. It's going to run ~10K. I have a Starwood card and a Barclays NFL Visa. I'm a homeowner already.

I'm looking for a new card to put this charge on. I'd like the ability to carry this balance for 12 months at 0% APR. Some cashback or other rewards would be great too.

Thoughts?

Chase slate...0% balance transfer for 15 months, $0 transfer fee.

I don't think you can really get any cashback or rewards for balance transfers afaik.

Sorry, should have been clearer. I was looking for a new card to get and then make this purchase with, not a card to transfer to. I guess I could just pick up the chase slate and put it on my starwood card, then make the transfer. But I thought I might be able to make out better with an introductory offer of some kind.

Well, I think if you got the southwest card and got an amazon card for $500 you could send amazon payments for $500 to someone you know.

IIRC they stopped allowing you to transfer cash from your CC with Amazon Payments.

Or get a physical card and sell it on ebay/plasticjungle. You should get close to face value if it's the cash you need.

Hi, I just finished my refi and i'm looking for any good airline bonus cards. My last card was a British Airways card which gave me an obscene number of miles for nearly nothing. Prior to that I had a AA card from Amex that also did similar results.

I haven't been able to look around lately but what are the odds that something like that comes through soon?

Anyone know what the best card is for signup bonuses? Preferably no annual fee. I can't get a Chase card because I have an Amazon card and they don't like issuing two cards to own person (I've been denied like the past 4 times I've asked with all the reps saying "it looks here like you have an account with us already..."). If there's not a good one with a bonus, what's the best non-Chase cashback card? Citi Forward good?

Any recommended card that's great for gas or general paying bills and grocery shopping (costco)? Currently only have a chase Freedom. Considering Discover or AMEX. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am actually in the same boat, AMEX Blue seems like a good option I got a direct mail offer for $250 cash after spending 500 in the first 3months

Think I will pull the trigger on that one so I'll have two visa, one amex.
