August 16, 2006 22:06 - Review of the Bank of America WorldPoints Platinum Plus Mastercard

We are now offering the Bank of America WorldPoints� Platinum Plus� MasterCard� Credit Card on our site and have written a review on this card.

This used to be a MBNA card, and the only difference is that it is now called the Bank of America instead of MBNA WorldPoints Mastercard. The attractive feature of this card is that there is no annual fee, you get a 0% apr introductory offer on both balance transfers and cash advance checks for 12 months and you get a very low apr of 7.90%. The reward program is comprehensive as well, though slightly better in the travel rewards.

August 15, 2006 23:12 - End of the Citi Dividend Platinum Select Card?

It looks like Citi has ended the Dividend Platinum Select Card. After informing independent credit card review sites that they will no longer offering this card from today, I did a quick check on their website and true enough, they are no longer offering this card.

This is a shame because the Citi Dividend Platinum Select Card is a great card that pays 5% rebates on supermarket, gasoline and drugstore purchases. For a long time, this is in my opinion, perhaps the best credit card in the market (certain the best cash back credit card). I will make a call to Citibank tomorrow to confirm, but it certainly looks like the end of the 5% cash back credit card era.

The Blue Cash� from American Express is probably the best 5% cash rebate credit card now, though it has a tiered formula and the 5% kicks in only when annual spending exceeds $6,500. Having said that, this card pays 1.5% rebates on all other purchases aside from groceries, gasoline and drugstore purchases.

August 15, 2006 21:32 - Review of the Continental Finance Mastercard

We are now offering the Continental Finance Mastercard and have just written a review. This card is issued by Bank First of Delaware and markets itself to those with bad credit, no credit or even those who have been discharged from bankruptcy. As with most sub-prime credit cards, there are some fees that potential cardholders should be aware of. You can read our review of this card here :

August 10, 2006 22:22 - Is the end of the 5% cash back credit card in sight?

Are we coming to the end of the 5% cash back credit card era?

Savvy cardholders have long recognized the value in a 5% cash back card that pays 5% rebates on gasoline, supermarkets and drugstores. For a long time, the Citi Dividend Platinum Select Card (and the Citi Dividend American Express Card) was the best of the the lot. Earlier this year, Chase decided to compete in the space with the Chase Cash Plus Rewards which has essentially identical features as the Citi Dividend Card. However, after just a few months, they pulled the offer and discontinued the card altogether.

I happen to know people from the Chase credit card department and from what I know, these 5% cash rebate cards though popular, are not very profitable for the card issuers. Most cardholders are savvy and do not carry a balance. These cards do not have annual fee and yet consumers get a very good rebate!

Citibank has just announced that from 15th August 2006, they will no longer be offering these cards at independent review sites like this one. Does this signal the end of the Dividend card? We cannot be sure of that. But given what happened to the Chase Cash Plus Rewards card earlier this year, we cannot rule it out as well.

If you have not gotten the Citi� Dividend American Express� Card, you may just want to get your hands on them now!

August 10, 2006 11:56 - Review of the Western Union Prepaid Mastercard

The Western Union Prepaid Mastercard is probably the most cost effective prepaid credit card today. Where most prepaid cards require upfront application and processing fee as high as $159.95, the Western Union Mastercard only requires a one-time non-refundable fee of $9.95.

Though most prepaid cards claim to have no annual fee, they actually charge a monthly maintanence fee. Western Union also charges a monthly fee, but it is waived if you get your employer to use the direct deposit feature. For those looking for a basic prepaid credit card, this would be the one I'd recommend.

August 2, 2006 21:50 - Review of the US Airways Dividend Miles Reward Program

Our second review of frequent flyer programs gets under way. This time, it is the US Airways Dividend Miles program.

With the merger with America West, US Airways is poised to be the largest domestic career in the US. This program has won the Bes Elite Program in the Freddie Awards three times in a row, which says a lot about what its elite status members think about it's program and customer service.
