When you're trying to figure out what type of card to apply for, Curtis Arnold, founder of CardRatings.com told us rewards cards are a great option.
Arnold says, "Cash-back rewards cards are the way to go. They're simple. You don't have to worry about tracking points and, unlike cards tailored to specific kinds of people, (frequent fliers and restaurateurs, for example) they don't require aggressive, constant spending to reap the reward. Check www.cardratings.com/cashbackcreditcards to find the one that fits best for you."
