Editors Review

Pros

  • no annual fee
  • 12 months 0% intro APR on purchases and balance transfers
  • 5x points on gas, groceries and drugstore purchases for limited 6 months 

Cons

  • 1x regular rewards rate after 6 months
  • 3% foreign transaction fee
  • no sign up bonus

Verdict

Not an exceptional card by any means. Rewards at 5x rate look great but it is limited by category: gas, drugstore and groceries and by time - this high rate applies only to the first 6 months of the account. After 6 months pass, you are left with a mediocre 1x rewards rate on all your purchases. No annual fee is great, but no sign up bonuses or spending bonuses makes me yawn.
