We are all looking to get the most for our money and that’s one of the biggest reasons Black Friday, which takes place on the 25th of November this year, is such a great day. From besieging a store all night in preparation for midnight deal-grabbing to foraging the internet trying to find the best discounts, in the world of shopping nothing really beats Black Friday. But there is more to saving than just beating the competition to get great deals. The best way to start to saving this Black Friday is by getting yourself the right credit card.
This year, credit card companies are offering better and bigger rewards, which is great news. For example, a top cash back card could give you up to 5% rebates on your Black Friday shopping, or up to 20% cash back if you shop online through a credit card mall. The huge sign-up bonuses (up to $150) offered by some of these cards could put you way into the black right ahead of your shopping. Add to that the long 0% intro APR on purchases that you get with most of these cards and you’ve got a super saving tool for Black Friday. Here, we at GET.com will show you our pick of the best credit cards for this year’s Black Friday.
Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express, a GET.com advertiser, has a bonus offer which lets you earn $150 back after spending $1,000 in purchases using your new Card within your first 3 months as a cardholder. You receive this $150 back as a statement credit.
Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express is a good choice if you spend a lot on groceries and gas as you can earn 6% cash back at U.S. supermarkets (on up to $6,000 per year in purchases, then 1%), 3% cash back at U.S. gas stations & select U.S. department stores, and 1% cash back for other purchases. Terms and limitations apply. As a special offer, if you apply by 1/11/2017 earn 10% cash back on purchases at Amazon.com in the first 6 months of Card Membership (up to $200). You earn cash back on eligible purchases in the form of Reward Dollars, which you can then redeem as a statement credit.
This card also has a 0% intro APR on purchases and balance transfers for 12 months, with 13.24% – 23.24% variable APR after. So if you use this card for your Black Friday shopping, you can pay off your purchases with a 0% APR during that intro period.
