Best Credit Cards For Lyft Spend
A list of the best 50 credit cards for Lyft based on how much you spend, pulled from a database of 250+ credit cards. Calculate and compare results.
Lyft is one of the main rideshare companies in the U.S. next to Uber. They are very useful for getting around and are typically easier to obtain in terms of hailing a ride versus your standard taxi thanks to the functionality of their mobile app. If you use Lyft, you'll want to make sure you're getting the best bang for your buck.
Chase bank pretty much rules over the Lyft market with all of their cards offering either 10x, 5x, or 5% when it comes to Ultimate Rewards Points and Chase cash back. If you use Lyft a lot, the Chase Sapphire Reserve will be the number 1 choice as you'll be earning 10x Ultimate Rewards Points which is a 15% return at minimum when booking travel through the Chase Travel Portal. If you spend money with Lyft occasionally, any of Chase's other point or cash back earning cards will do the job with 5% or 5x earnings.
If you're a victim of Chase 5/24 (as in you've opened more than 5 new accounts in the past 24 months), you'll have to find alternative options. Bank of America's cash back credit cards offer the ability to earn up to 5.25% cash back based on how much you have invested with them. You can earn 3.3% cash back for just having a checking or savings and up to 5.25% if you have $100k invested with Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, or Merrill Edge.
If you don't have money to invest or don't dabble with Bank of America, the Wells Fargo Propel AMEX is always a great choice as you'll earn 3% to 4.5% return on travel, dining, and streaming services.
