Best Credit Cards For Department Store Purchases
Get a list of the best credit cards for general department store purchases based on your spend. Compare results side by side.
Department store isn't a commonly featured bonus category. If you make purchases more than a few purchases at any given department store, more than likely you'll want to take a look at that store's credit card. Generally, the rewards offered on department store credit cards will outshine any rewards you can earn with a standard non-store rewards card. For example, the best credit card for Macy's is generally the Macy's Credit Card and the best credit card for American Eagle Outfitters is generally the American Eagle Outfitters Credit Card. If you don't shop at any specific store enough to pick up a co-branded credit card, then you'll want to find a card that gives a great return across all stores.
The no-annual fee AMEX Blue Cash Everyday is one of the only non-store cards that feature department stores as a bonus category. You'll earn a simple 2% cash back on department store purchases as well as 2% back on gas station and 3% back on grocery purchases. It's a great card to have if you want to keep it simple.
Chase has it's own good selection of cards with the Chase Freedom Unlimited and Chase Ink Business Unlimited with both cards having the ability to earn points when you have at least one Ultimate Rewards Point earning card.
