Top Credit Cards for Holiday Shopping

4157858997 a30215ed1f Credit cards are a great way to both save money and protect your purchases during the holiday season. For one, many cards offer return protection, purchase protection, and extended warranties beyond what the store or manufacturer may offer you. Some cards offer extended 0% APR offers, like this one for 15 months, making bigger purchases easier to pay off with no added interest charges. Others, like this card, offer 5% cash back in rotating bonus categories, like department stores (up to $1,500 a quarter). Regardless of what you decide to buy for your loved ones this season, be sure to use a credit card for those purchases, and apply soon, so that it's ready to go in your wallet when Black Friday and Cyber Monday roll around!
