3 Credit Cards for Ride-Hailing Drivers

Americans are lucky to be offered hundreds of competing credit cards, but it can be difficult to find the right one to suit your needs. Therefore, it’s important to know what your spending habits are in order to choose the card that makes the most sense for you.

Cardholders who carry a balance should look for a card with the lowest interest rate, and possibly one with 0% APR introductory financing. A lower interest rate means you will pay less money toward interest charges as you pay down the balance. Meanwhile, those who can avoid interest charges by paying their balances in full every month should choose a card that offers the most valuable rewards in the form of points, miles or cash back.

Make sure you also generally meet the credit issuer’s criteria. It’s a good idea to know what your credit score is so that you can target your search to a card you’re more likely to get approved for.

You should consider any benefits offered by the card, such as purchase protection or travel insurance. Finally, applicants should also take into account any applicable fees — such as annual fees and foreign transaction fees.

Here are our top three credit cards picks for teachers.

Drawbacks: There’s a annual fee of $95

Choosing a Card for the Teacher Lifestyle

Teaching is a tough job, but your credit card can help make it just a little easier if you choose the right one. If you want to save on classroom supplies, you should look for a card that earns good cash back rates at your merchants of choice. If your focus is a well-earned summer vacation, you may want a card with travel rewards.
You should evaluate the fees and APR associated with any card you’re considering. These costs can offset the value of your rewards, so pick a card that doesn’t overcharge you if you spend your own money on classroom supplies.

What Credit Is Required for a Teacher Credit Card?

Credit cards with rewards often require good to excellent credit. You should check your credit before you apply, and submit an application only if you have a good shot at approval. You can check your credit report for free at Credit.com.

3 Wholesale Club Credit Cards for Savvy Shoppers

[UPDATE: Some offers mentioned below have expired and/or are no longer available on our site. You can view the current offers from our partners in our credit card marketplace. DISCLOSURE: Cards from our partners are mentioned below.]

For the cost of an annual membership fee, wholesale clubs offer deals on groceries, gas, and more. These stores stock a much greater variety of goods than your average neighborhood supermarket or specialty retailer, and you can even order big-ticket items online.

Many wholesale clubs offer their own credit cards with rewards for purchases made at their stores, and other cards are designed to give wholesale club members even greater savings at their club of choice.

Here are three credit cards for savvy wholesale club shoppers.
<!–

1. Costco Anywhere Visa Card by Citi

Rewards: 4% cash back on up to $7,000 in qualifying gas purchases every year (1% cash back after that threshold is met); 3% cash back on dining and qualifying travel purchases; 2% cash back on Costco and Costco.com purchases; and 1% cash back on other purchases.
Sign-Up Bonus:
None
Annual Fee:
$0 with a paid Costco membership.
Annual Percentage Rate (APR):
[carddata api_url=”https://static.ccom-cdn.com/credit/api/creditcard/v2/offer/citi-costco-citibankcreditcardoffers?af=32806″ option=”onGoingApr”]
Why We Picked It: Costco members earn double cash back on their wholesale club purchases.
For Wholesale Clubs: Your online and in-store Costco purchases earn 2% cash back, which goes a long way toward reducing your Costco bill. Plus, filling up at eligible gas stations (including Costco’s) will earn you 4% cash back.
Drawbacks: If you don’t shop at Costco, this card isn’t right for you.–>

1. Bank of America Cash Rewards 

Rewards: 3% cash back on gas and 2% cash back at grocery stores and wholesale clubs for up to $2,500 in combined quarterly purchases; 1% cash back on other purchases.
Sign-Up Bonus:
Online $150 bonus cash if you spend $500 in the first 90 days of your account opening.
Annual Fee:
$0
APR:
0% APR for 12 months on purchases and on balance transfers made within 60 days of account opening, then variable 13.99% to 23.99% APR.
Why We Picked It: This card’s cash back rate isn’t limited to a specific wholesale club.
For Wholesale Clubs: You’ll earn 2% cash back on all wholesale club purchases, no matter your club of choice. So if you switch wholesale clubs, you can bring this card along without losing out on cash back.
Drawbacks: Special cash back rates for gas, groceries, and wholesale club purchases are capped at $2,500 in purchases per quarter. Once you reach that limit, your cash back will drop to 1% for the remainder of the quarter. 

2. Sam’s Club Mastercard

Rewards: 5% cash back on up to $6,000 in gas purchases per year (1% cash back after that threshold is met); 3% cash back on dining and travel purchases; and 1% cash back on other purchases.
Sign-Up Bonus:
$45 statement credit if you open a card and make a purchase of $45 or more at SamsClub.com on the same day.
Annual Fee:
$0 with a paid Sam’s Club membership.
APR:
Variable 15.90% or 23.90% APR on purchases, depending on your creditworthiness.
Why We Picked It: Sam’s Club members can earn cash back on a wide variety of purchases.
For Wholesale Clubs: Making a $45 purchase at SamsClub.com on the first day of your card will get you a $45 bonus statement credit (offer ends December 31, 2017). Oddly enough, the card’s best value is on gas, dining, and travel purchases that can be made outside of Sam’s Club. Sam’s Club purchases will earn 1% cash back.
Drawbacks: While the special cash back rates are competitive, you earn only 1% cash back on Sam’s Club purchases. Many basic cash back cards can match or beat that rate. 

3. My BJ’s Perks Elite Mastercard 

Rewards: 5% cash back on eligible BJ’s and BJs.com purchases; 2% cash back on eligible dining and non-BJ’s gas purchases; and 1% cash back on other purchases.
Sign-Up Bonus:
None
Annual Fee:
$0 with a paid BJ’s membership.
APR:
Variable 15.99% or 25.99% APR, depending on your creditworthiness.
Why We Picked It: BJ’s members earn strong cash back in-store and online.
For Wholesale Clubs: Eligible in-store and online BJ’s purchases earn 5% cash back. You’ll also automatically save 10 cents per gallon at BJ’s gas stations.
Drawbacks: If you don’t shop at BJ’s, you should keep looking. 

Choosing a Credit Card for Wholesale Club Shopping

You should check the credit card offered at your favorite wholesale club, as it will likely provide great cash back rates on its own products.

But don’t jump on your wholesale club’s card without checking out the competition. General cash back cards may offer equal or greater cash back value. And if you ever cancel your wholesale club membership, a branded wholesale club card won’t be quite as valuable.

Make sure to check the fees and APR associated with any cards you’re considering, as they may eat into the value of your cash back earnings.

What Credit Is Required for a Credit Card for Wholesale Club Shopping?

Cash back cards frequently require good to excellent credit. You should check your credit score before you apply, and submit an application only if you have a decent shot at approval—a hard inquiry into your credit can lower your score a few points. You can check your credit report free at Credit.com.
