Editors Review

Pros

  • No annual fee
  • 2x points on groceries, gas, utilities (excluding Target and Walmart®)
  • 1 point per mile spent on all other purchases, no cap
  • Redeem points for shopping, flights, dining and more
  • Free FICO score for cardmembers

Cons

  • High 25.24% APR on purchases and balance transfers
  • 3% foreign transaction fee

Verdict

A card for average credit is not expected to have the best benefits and rewards. Surprisingly, this card offers a very competitive cash back rate 1%-2% and no annual fee. A high APR will keep people from carrying a balance on the card, but regardless, it is not a good idea to carry a balance while trying to build or rebuild your credit. Comparing to Capital One Platinum card, Barclaycard offers a good cash back so we would recommend going for Barclaycard.
