Rewards redeemable once a year and only at Sam's Club
The Sam's Club Mastercard is an excellent option if you spend a lot on gas and dining out, and if you don’t mind waiting for your rewards.
The card offers:
• 5% cash back at eligible gas stations worldwide, including gas stations at Sam’s Club (on up to $6,000 spent per year, then 1%).
• 3% cash back on dining and travel.
• 1% cash back on all other purchases.
You can earn a maximum of $5,000 in rewards per calendar year.
The $0, but you’ll have to pay a minimum of $45 a year to maintain a Sam’s Club membership. You can redeem your rewards only once a year, and only inside a Sam’s Club store.
