Editor's Review: The Chase Freedom(SM) Visa card from Chase is designed for those who have excellent credit who are looking for a great cash back rewards program.

This card has one of the more attractive cash back features in the marketplace. Cardholders earn a $100 cash back bonus after spending at least $500 on the card within the first three months of opening their account. The card also features a 0% introductory APR for 15 months on balance transfers AS WELL AS purchases.

The rewards program now features 5% Cash Back on up to $1,500 spent at hotels (on hotel rooms purchased directly with the hotel), airlines (on tickets purchased directly with the airline), Best Buy® and Kohl's from 10/1/12 – 12/31/12. The card also offers cardholders 5% cash back (paid out on a quarterly basis) for bonus categories such as grocery stores, restaurants and movie theaters.

Additionally, cardholders will earn a 1% rebate for each $1 on all other net purchases.

There’s a reasonable ongoing APR on purchases (for those who qualify), no annual fee, no earning caps or spending tiers and your cash rebates will never expire.
