U.S. News & World Report has released a Best Credit Cards web portal to bring clarity and transparency to an area where historically consumers have lacked objective advice.
The Best Credit Cards rankings incorporate real-time data to ensure the latest information is available for each card. Top ranked credit cards have included the United MileagePlus® Club card in the Best Airline Credit Cards list and The Ritz-Carlton Rewards® Credit Card in the Best Hotel Credit Cards rankings. The Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express has topped the Best Cash Back list and Spectrum Rewards has been identified as a Best Low Interest card.
The Best Credit Cards methodology takes into consideration product features, including digital tools, EMV chip and image card capability; customer experience, based on filed and resolved complaints with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; and net monetary value, the amount customers keep after additional fees and interest are paid over a two-year period.
The Best Credit Cards rankings are part of a growing portfolio of online Personal Finance recommendation services offered by U.S. News, which includes its popular Advisor Finder and Best Mutual Funds web portals plus a trove of advice to guide consumers in making smart financial decisions.
