FULL LIST OF EDITORIAL PICKS: BEST CREDIT CARDS FOR ENTERTAINMENT SPENDING

Confirm details on issuer's website before applying.

Capital One Savor Cash Rewards Credit Card*

Our pick for: Serious socializers

If a night out is more than a once-in-a-while proposition for you, consider the Capital One Savor Cash Rewards Credit Card. You get a best-in-class cash-back rate on dining, entertainment and eligible streaming services, plus bonus rewards at grocery stores. The sign-up bonus is one of the best you can get on a cash-back card. There's an annual fee, though. Read our review.

Capital One SavorOne Cash Rewards Credit Card

Our pick for: Nights out with no annual fee

Love the night life but dead-set against paying an annual fee? Consider the Capital One SavorOne Cash Rewards Credit Card. It pays a lower cash-back rate on dining and entertainment than the regular Savor card, but the rewards are nevertheless quite good (see rates and fees). The sign-up bonus is smaller than on the annual-fee version, too, but it's still solid (see rates and fees). Read our review.

Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express

Our pick for: Entertaining at home

If your household spends a lot on groceries, gas, transit and streaming, the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express is for you. The rewards it pays in those categories — particularly at U.S. supermarkets and on select U.S. streaming subscriptions — are among the richest of any card. There's a nice welcome offer for new cardholders and an introductory APR period, too. The generous benefits come at a cost, though: Unlike most cash-back cards, this one charges an annual fee. Read our review.

U.S. Bank Cash+® Visa Signature® Card

Our pick for: Moviegoers

If you don't mind putting some work into your rewards, check out the U.S. Bank Cash+® Visa Signature® Card. It might be the most customizable cash back card available. You pick which categories earn the most cash back — you get two 5% categories and a 2% category — and you can change those options every quarter. There's a good bonus offer for new cardholders, too. Read our review.

Citi Custom Cash® Card

Our pick for: Live entertainment

The Citi Custom Cash® Card offers a lot of value for a $0 annual fee: 5% back automatically in your eligible top spending category on up to $500 spent per billing cycle (1% back on other spending). The list of eligible 5% categories is varied and includes biggies like restaurants, grocery stores and more. And unlike with its competitors, there's no activation schedule or bonus calendar to keep track of. Read our review.

Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

Our pick for: Travel rewards

For a reasonable annual fee, the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card earns bonus rewards (up to 5X) on travel, dining, select streaming services, and select online grocery purchases. Points are worth 25% more when you redeem them for travel booked through Chase, or you can transfer them to about a dozen airline and hotel partners. The sign-up bonus is stellar, too. Read our review. 

Citi Double Cash® Card

Our pick for: Simplicity

Year after year, the Citi Double Cash® Card has been a top choice among flat-rate cash-back cards. You earn 2% cash back on every purchase — 1% when you buy something and 1% when you pay it off. There's no 0% intro period for purchases and no bonus categories, but the high rewards rate more than makes up for the lack of bells and whistles. Read our review.

The Platinum Card® from American Express

Our pick for: Unique experiences

The Platinum Card® from American Express comes with a hefty annual fee, but travelers who like to go in style (and aren't afraid to pay for comfort) can more than get their money's worth. Enjoy extensive airport lounge access, hundreds of dollars a year in travel and shopping credits, hotel benefits and more. That's not even getting into the high rewards rate on eligible travel purchases and the rich welcome offer for new cardholders. Read our review.

Sony Visa® Credit Card

Our pick for: Sony aficionados

This card offers 5X rewards on entertainment spending (with a broad definition of entertainment) as well as on Sony purchases from authorized retailers, plus 2X at restaurants. Collecting your bonus points on Sony spending can be a hassle due to the redemption requirements, but if you’re willing to play by those rules, you could snag handsome rewards that later redeem for Sony products. Read our review.

PlayStation® Visa® Credit Card

Our pick for: Gamers

You'll get bonus rewards on PlayStation purchases, as well as on Internet service and at restaurants. There are a few hoops to jump through — shopping with authorized retailers, for instance, and submitting a bonus points form — but if you spend a lot of money in the PlayStation ecosystem, it can be worth your time.
