FAQ

How is cash back calculated on credit cards?

Cash back is calculated by multiplying the earning rate by the purchase amount. So if your credit card earns 2% cash back on travel, a $200 travel charge on that credit card would earn you $4 in cash back.

Is 2% cash back a lot?

2% cash back is the minimum amount of cash back most are willing to earn on purchases. There are plenty of 2% cash back credit cards with no annual fee, so earning anything less than that is low.

Are cash back rewards worth it?

Yes. If you don't travel often or want to earn simple, easy rewards, cash back is the route to take.

Is cash back free money?

There are plenty of cash back credit cards with no annual fee, so if you pay off your statement in full every month, all cash back earned will be free money.
