What is the best credit card rewards program?

Choosing a credit card that best suits you involves comparing several factors, one of which includes the rewards program the issuer is affiliated with.

If you’re not sure which credit card rewards program to choose, it may be worth considering your current spending habits. Assess where are you spending the most money as this may help show which rewards program offers you the best value.

Are you a fan of buying white goods and nabbing clothing discounts? An internal rewards program may be a better suit. Are you looking to travel overseas soon? A large points bonus on sign-up could help pay for your ticket. Are you an avid frequent flyer with Qantas, for example? Earning Qantas points on your everyday spending may be a worthwhile option.

For more detailed information on the rewards program offered by your ideal card issuer, please read the product disclosure statement on their website.
