Editor's Review

Author: Tim
Verdict - This is a mediocre rewards card. Pick a better one at on our rewards credit card homepage.

Fifth Third Bank Visa Signature Rewards offers 2% back on gas, for up to $500 per month. In terms of other rewards, you get 1% back up to $25,000 a year, 1.25% back between $25,001 and $50,000 per year, and so on, capping out at 2% back when you spend above $100,000 per year on this card. There is no annual fee.

However, you can fare much better with a different rewards card. If you are a big spender and thing Fifth Third rewards are attractive, consider the following: after you spend $6,500 a year earnings 0.5% on American Express Blue Cash, your reward rate gets bumped to 1.25%, and you get 5% back on gas & groceries. Therefore, anyone who spends above $25,000 a year is likely to do substantially better with Blue Cash.
