Sarah’s favorite credit cards

“I use three credit cards on a regular basis, so I can maximize cash back on my purchases. I have the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express so I can earn an elevated rate on groceries, public transit and ride-sharing apps. I use the Capital One SavorOne Cash Rewards Credit Card for dining out. I use the Fidelity® Rewards Visa Signature® Card on all other purchases, so I’m always earning at least 2% cash back.”
