You’ll want to have the best possible credit card in your wallet if you’re planning to pack up your family for spring break. Here are three of the Nerds’ favorite credit cards for a spring break trip with the kiddos.
Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express: Best for family road trips (and day-to-day expenses)
You’ll need a good gas card (and plenty of on-board entertainment) if you’re packing the whole family in the car. Enter the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express, which not only boasts 3% cash back at U.S. gas stations, but also offers 6% back at U.S. supermarkets (up to $6,000 in spending — then 1%), 3% at select U.S. department stores and 1% back on everything else.
There’s a sign-up bonus worth bragging to your extended family about: $200 statement credit after you spend $1,000 in purchases on your new Card within the first 3 months. Terms Apply.
The Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express has an annual fee of $95. The annual fee will be negated by spending at least $31 in groceries per week. 0% on Purchases and Balance Transfers for 12 months, and then the ongoing APR of 14.24% - 25.24% Variable APR.
