Credit Card Rebates Rule The Roost

Aug 17, 2007
Put the power of credit card rebates in your wallet! This can be done very easily if you have good or excellent credit, pay your balance monthly, and enjoy spending money to receive cash back on your purchases.

These unique credit card rebates are all over the place and they provide cardholders with cash rewards or rebates when they shop just like they normally would. All you have to do is use your credit card and purchase items that you always buy from your favorite store and you earn a percentage that you spend back in rebates. The average percentage rate is around 1% to 5% according to which credit card company you choose.

You may first wonder, what the gimmick is, because you know there is one. Well, to put it simply, the credit card rebates are given to you because the credit card company charges the business a fee. This fee is used to give you a rebate. You may also notice that with some credit card rebates you may be paying higher interest fees and annual fees than you would with a regular credit card. These annual fees are usually between $25 and $100 per year.

Many times with credit card rebates such things as balance transfers and cash advances do not count toward your rebate, but there are a few credit card companies that do offer $5 with all balance transfers. You will have to read the terms and conditions and of course the fine print to learn which credit card companies offer credit card rebates with balance transfers and cash advances.

Most credit card rebates are great even if you may have to pay a higher APR. Today, there are some credit card companies that are still keeping the APR as low as possible while offering credit card rebates. However, if you do not pay your balance on time you will soon learn that the money you would be earning is gone due to paying interest on your balance. The best way to avoid paying interest is to pay off your entire balance monthly. You may find that you are paying more in interest than you are actually earning in rebates if you carry a balance.

Remember, all credit card rebates are a great way to get something back for all your spending but for most credit card companies they only give these type of credit cards to individuals with good or excellent credit.
