Credit Card Reviews


Updated: 18 hours ago

We’ve put together this page of credit card reviews because with dozens of different airline, hotel, and bank rewards programs (not to mention cash-back cards), consumers have more choices than ever when it comes to credit cards. Choosing between the various earnings categories can be confusing enough, but when you factor in the range of loyalty programs available, the varied fees and structures, and the differences between card issuers, it can be very overwhelming.

Latest Credit Card Reviews

Our in-depth credit card reviews go through all the details of each card, explain how to maximize the benefits of the card, and what to do with the points and rewards you’ll earn. As with all OMAAT travel reviews, our credit card analyses aren’t sponsored or promoted by a brand or card issuer (though we may receive a commission if you apply for and are approved for certain cards). Since we’re an independent site, we rate cards and share the best offers regardless of if we receive a referral fee or not, so you can trust our recommendations.

A few things to keep in mind when it comes to credit:

In addition to our in-depth reviews of individual credit cards, we’ve put some of the most popular travel rewards card head-to-head to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses.
