USAA Limitless Visa – 2.5% Cash Back on All Purchases

USAA Limitless VisaAs part of a limited online pilot program, USAA is offering a credit card with an unlimited 2.5% cash back on all purchases. The USAA Limitless Visa, in addition to offering a generous cash back rebate on purchases, does not charge any annual fee or foreign transaction fees.

Now, there are a number of caveats. First of all, you must be a USAA member to apply for the card. In addition, you must have a USAA Bank checking account with a qualifying direct deposit of at least $1,000 every month. If you do not have a qualifying direct deposit, you’ll earn 1.5% cash back on your purchases instead. And currently, USAA is only making the card available in the following states: AL, AZ, CO, GA, ID, IN, KS, LA, MI, NM, PA, SC, TN and WA. It will become available in additional states at a later date.

Chase Reveals New Freedom Unlimited Card

Chase FreedomIn an interview with Reuters, Chase president of Consumer Branded Cards, Pamela Codispoti, recently revealed that Chase would be offering a new cash back credit card in April called the Freedom Unlimited card. Intended to compete against similar offerings from Capital One and Citi, the Freedom Unlimited card will have no annual fee and will earn 1.5x Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent on all purchases.

The introduction of the Freedom Unlimited card does not mean that the existing Chase Freedom card–which offers 5x points in rotating quarterly bonus categories and 1x points on everything else–is going away. Codispoti said that the Freedom Unlimited card will continue to be available as an alternative, or a companion, to the current Freedom card. According to Codispoti, “Different customers like different offers and some like the current Freedom card.”

Top Cash Back Credit CardsIf you’re in the market for a new cash back credit card, you’ve come to the right place. Below, you’ll find the most comprehensive and unbiased list of the best cash back credit cards on the market.

PCMCU MasterCard Platinum Rewards Card – 5% Cash Back on All Purchases

5 Percent Cash BackWhat if I told you there was a credit card that paid 5% cash back on everything, with no category restrictions and no fees? And that the 5% cash back was not just a teaser intro rate, good for only a few months? Sounds a little too good to be true, right? Such a card would be extremely popular and for good reason. Cards that do offer the exalted tier of 5% cash back almost always restrict that level of bonus rewards to specific categories, and often only during certain periods of the year. (Examples are the rotating quarterly bonus cards such as Chase Freedom and Discover it.)

The surprising news is that such a 5% card does exist, though it also comes with a number of restrictions which make only a lucky few able to actually take advantage of it.
