Best in the West.. Which credit card is the best for rewards and such?
Long story short, I have a debit card through my credit union and a Capital One credit card with a piddly limit of 1k and zero rewards benefits. It just dawned on me that this totally sucks! So I'd like to get a new credit card (don't worry I pay off the balance every single month) with some kick ass rewards and a bigger limit. I'd like some recommendations. I was thinking about the Amazon credit card that gives you various percentages of points on purchases both on and off Amazon as well as a signing bonus. But then I stumbled across this article talking about the Citi Forward Card. Five minutes of googling will get you ALL KINDS of recommendations. I'd like to consolidate these recommendations into something a bit easier to choose from.
So here is a bit of info to help figure out what a good new credit card might be:
I do a ton of shopping on Amazon, to a lesser extent some regular Best Buy purchases
I buy lots of games/media and electronics
I'm a Costco member
I travel to Europe once a year, and Northern California once a year, but have never done any kind of miles thing, so this might be something to look into if it can get me cheaper or even FREE tickets
When I go to Europe I stay with family, so hotel points aren't a huge draw for me
Continuing on the Europe thing, a card with no foreign transaction fees would be nice
I pay off my balance every month
A card that extends manufacturer warranties is huge
I would use the card for as long as it continued having good deals, so cards with incentives that increase year over year could be nice
Last I checked(few years back) I had a great credit score of at least 730
Go nuts guys, please give me some ideas and recommendations as to what you think the best card for me would be considering the facts I just gave. Also let me know if I left out any important factors.
