Looking for a new rewards credit card? Barclayscard makes a strong case for itself with its current promotion: $50 cash back to start. Details follow.
After qualifying for a Barclaycard Rewards MasterCard — it requires excellent credit to do so — you simply get 5,000 bonus points (roughly $50) in your account after making your first purchase or balance transfer.
Aside from this deal, the card earns its users 2 points for every $1 spent on everyday categories (gas, grocery and utilities, according to the fine print) and 1 point per dollar on everything else. The card has no annual fee. It has a 0% intro APR for the first 15 months and a variable APR after that, which will be 14.99%, 17.99% or 24.99%.
