$200 new cardholder bonus: The Barclaycard CashForward™ World Mastercard® has one of the lowest hurdles for earning a new cardholder bonus. Simply spend at least $1,000 in the first 90 days after account opening to receive a $200 cash rewards bonus. Many other cards require minimum spending of $3,000 or more in similar periods of time to qualify for sign-up bonuses and the standard for competing cards is a smaller bonus valued at $100 to $150.
$0 annual fee: As a general rule, cards that come packed with features and higher cash back rates tend to carry an annual fee. Barclaycard does a good job balancing this card’s perks with its costs, and the card’s $0 annual fee means that it can fit the needs of heavy and modest card users alike.
1.5% cash back: We bias toward cards that have simple, flat-rate rewards programs, and this is one such card. Cardholders 1.5% cash back on all purchases and also receive a 5% cash-back bonus when redeeming rewards, which can be used for a subsequent redemption. The fully-baked cash-back rate is 1.575%, when accounting for bonus rewards, giving it a slight edge over the hoard of 1.5% cash back cards on the market.
0% intro APR: The card includes a 0% intro APR for both new purchases and balance transfers. Pay attention to balance-transfer qualifications, though, as the promo APR only applies to each balance transfer that posts to your account within 45 days of account opening.
