    I love my Chase Freedom credit card because of the 1% – 3% cashback, PLUS the $50 bonus they give me whenever my rewards dollars reaches $200. This year my rewards dollars alone funded my summer vacation! Sweet!

    I hate Bank of America credit cards because they hike up interest rates to rediculous amounts even though there never was a late payment on the account.

    I can’t say I love any credit cards. I’m anti credit. But as for the ones I have, my Chase is my favorite. I happened into a Chase card when they bought WaMu and although I don’t have any of their special fancy member benefits, they are at least staying true to their commitments with me.

    My least favorite at the moment is my Target Visa. They just jacked up the interest rate to 29.99% even though I’ve never paid late, have never gone over my limit, and have kept my balance at zero. And they wonder why it’s the only card I never carry a balance on.

    • Debbie

      I agree.. I am trying to get another credit card so I can transfer my balance… I am making 50-75 payments each week to pay this off. I will be celebrating when this card is out of my life.

  • Judith V

    I use I use a discover card whenever I can. I get rewards for my purchases. I can use the reward in ways. Pay on my card, purchase gift card (with an additional 5 to 40% discount), donate to charity.
    There is no membership cost.

    I hate my Bank of America card. It was originally MBNA whih sold and resold. I have this card from 1986 with a $27000 credit limit. Never late but when B of A took over they reduced the credit limit to $2000. This in turn lowered my credit score (debt to available credit). Imagine that.

  • Bonny Sallee

    I hate Capital One because the interest rate is high.

  • Steva Spottswood

    I love my debit card because I can’t get myself into debt trouble. I use a simple Walmart debit card where I can cash my checks for free and deposit them onto the card. I only pay a $3.00 a month fee for the use of it.

  • Vickie Couturier

    I love my Disney Visa Card,it has NO yearly premium to use an if I pay it off at the end of each month there is NO interest charge an I collect disney points an yes I plan to use them this summer,I will NOT use any card that charges you for the use of it,an I have used cards before the same way as the Disney one an taken several cruises with them,only paying for my airfare or gas to drive to the ship,an ive NEVER paid a dime in interest or yearly charge to have the card,it can be done right IF you use your head an pay the balance promptly when you get your statement

  • Dee

    Actually I hate all credit cards….They have come and gone and come back again in my lifetime. I do like my Credit Union for many reasons, low interest and no fees. I am trying to use the credit union for more and more these days. I really think they are a safe bet and I like the personal service. I hate Chase…they have a monopoly on way too many things. They now own one of my credit cards and mortgage and they don’t care about anything except the bottom line. We have always tried to keep our eggs in more than one basket. Impossible with a company like Chase that goes around buying up everything. I really like the small guy more than the big guy. Big guy Chase comes in and changes everything in a polite letter. No thanks…..

  • Chrysostom

    I love all of my credit cards that give me cash back, so, between the set of them, I live at a 3.7% discount. I don’t like Fifth Third Bank very much after they accused me of stealing my own identity (seriously).
