Thanks for the link! I think even more interesting than their list of "Best Cards" was their list of "Worst Cards". Interesting, informative reading!

Nice read, but why they always leave out CU cards?

They list Macy's as the worst store card, which is crazy, honestly. Macy's card has great perks, but all they could talk about was the APR...

The rest, I don't have any quibbles with.

I did find it interesting that Macys store card was listed as a worst card since I've only read good things about the card here. I think what people here like most about it though is that it is often upgraded to Macys Visa and receives frequent CLIs.

 

Also, although they state that store cards backed by Visa or MC usually have lower APS than regular store cards, I haven't seen this to be true. My 5K Target Visa varies between 17.9-22.9%...probably about the same as a non-Visa backed Target card.
