Overview

If you are planning to get a new credit card, and would like it to be a Visa card, then you have quite a large selection to choose from. However, it’s important to understand one key fact. Visa is not actually the issuer of credit cards, they are just the payment network. Visa will decide where a particular credit card will be accepted and what kind of benefits it might offer its cardholders. We have gone through and analyzed each Visa credit card and found a select few that are the best of the best within different categories. See More

Our Methodology

SmartAsset has developed a quantitative and independent system for evaluating the relative value of a credit card offer versus other offers in the marketplace. Our system evaluates cards based exclusively on their features, such as their rewards earning rate (if applicable), fees, perks, and rewards program redemption options. The annual rewards values on this page are calculated using annual spending assumptions in various categories such as, but not limited to, gas, restaurants, airfare, and US supermarkets. These spending assumptions are built on research that SmartAsset has conducted on existing cash back credit cardholders. Our promise with our credit card recommendations is that we will always strive to have the most comprehensive, accurate, and objective method of evaluating credit card offers. Any recommendations are solely determined by the result of this research and model, and is never influenced by any fees, commissions, or other forms of compensation that SmartAsset may receive from credit card issuers for leads generated on our website.
