AUSTIN, Texas, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chase Sapphire Reserve is the top rewards credit card, according to CreditCards.com. Despite a $450 annual fee, card experts love the Reserve's generous 50,000 point sign-up bonus, lavish perks for travelers and flexible redemption policy, which can make it worth the initial expense.

Next up is the Barclaycard Arrival Plus, which comes with a more modest annual fee ($89, waived the first year) and considerable benefits of its own. The Arrival Plus card offers a sizable sign-up bonus of 50,000 points, as well as a flat rewards rate (two points per dollar on all purchases) and flexible redemption policy.
The Starwood Preferred Guest card rounds out the top three. Though its 25,000 point sign-up bonus is lacking compared to its competitors, its generously priced rewards points, travel benefits and a reasonable $95 annual fee (waived the first year) make this the ideal card for travelers who prefer the more luxurious Starwood properties.
