Expert review

The bcu Rewards credit card features a relatively competitive cashback offer with the bonus of a low interest rate. The cap on the maximum cashback you can get is higher than some others on the market. It does a higher annual fee than some of the other cashback credit cards on the market though, so it’s worth comparing the costs with the rewards before you want to apply. Although the low purchase interest rate could help you save, you should aim to pay your balance in full each month and take advantage of the interest-free days on purchases.
