With the hundreds of options for credit cards that exist these days, credit card issuers are doing everything they can to gain you as a customer. That means good news for you, since credit card companies are pulling out all the stops when it comes to offering introductory perks for their credit cards. What perks can you look for?
Bonus points/miles: The best cards are giving out more and more bonus points and miles as an intro bonus. For example, the cards in our list are giving out upwards of 40,000 extra bonus miles, which generally translates into $400 of cash back.
0% Intro APR: Many credit cards will give you an introductory period of 0% APR, so that if you rack up a bill on your credit card, you won’t be charged interest right away. This is most useful if you are doing a balance transfer that you want to pay down quickly without paying extra interest. Some of the best cards offer up to 14 months of 0% APR.
Cash back: Not as common but still used is the cash back bonus. Most cards either give you a straight cash back reward on your card, or will give you a gift certificate that is equal to that cash back. These rewards aren’t as popular.
