There are few things more satisfying than checking your credit card statement and seeing that monthly cash back reward.
To help consumers get the most from their cards, consumer information site NextAdvisor.com conducted an independent analysis of 10 popular cash back credit cards to determine which cards gave users the best bang for their buck.
The analysis comes with an interactive feature that allows users to get a personalised card recommendation based on how much they spend each month in 25 different categories, ranging from the typical gas and groceries to far more specific categories like Amazon and Starbucks.
