Visa Credit Cards


visa-225If you have a personal preference for Visa credit cards over MasterCard/American Express/Discover, we’ve made this list of some of the most popular Visa credit cards on the market today:

  • chase-slate-smallChase Slate Visa – This Visa credit card does not offer rewards but could be good for those with decent credit who want a low interest rate and perhaps have a higher interest balance they’d like to transfer from another credit card. It offers a 0% interest rate on purchases and balance transfers for 15 months, AND there is no balance transfer fee for balances transferred within the first 60 days of opening your account, which is the most generous 0% balance transfer rate offer we know of. No annual fee.
  • bp-credit-card-smallBP Visa – Earn discounts on BP gas based on the purchases you make with this card. Get a 15-cent discount for every $100 in BP purchases, and a 5-cent discount for every $100 in other card purchases. Swipe your card at the BP pump and you’ll see the price of a gallon of gas go down by the amount of your current discount. Discounts good on up to 20 gallons of gas in a single fill-up.
  • aarp-credit-card-smallAARP Visa – Nice cash back Visa card offers 3% cash back on gas and restaurant purchases and 1% cash back everywhere else. Also offers a 0% interest rate on purchases and balance transfers for the first 12 months you have it.
  • Rewards Visa – Not for everyone, but if you’re a frequent buyer, you’ll like it. You get points for every dollar spent on Amazon purchases with the card, 2 points per dollar at gas stations, restaurants and drug stores, and 1 point per dollar on all other card purchases. You can then use those points to pay all or some of any future Amazon purchase you make. We like the fact that you can use your points no matter how few you have, you don’t have to reach any point total in order to redeem.
  • First National Bank of Omaha Complete Rewards Visa – Get 1 point per dollar charged to the card. Points can be redeemed for cash back, merchandise or travel rewards, OR you can double your points (for an effective 2% rebate) if you deposit the money into a First National checking, savings, or 529 account, or if you use it to pay down a First National mortgage.
  • bofacashrewardsccBankAmericard Cash Rewards Visa – This Bank of America Visa is a nice cash back credit card.

If you use the card to make at least $500 in purchases within 90 days, you’ll get an extra $100 cash back.
