We enlisted Regina Novickas, money saving expert from Slickdeals.com, to reveal her top picks for best credit cards to help you save.  Her first nod goes to the American Express Starwood Preferred Guest Card.  She likes it because it’s great for travelers, offering the flexibility of no blackout dates and no annual fee for the first year.

“You’re not limited to just airlines and hotels,” Novickas said.  “It works for both.”

For best all-around savings card, Novickas votes for the Chase Freedom Card.  When it comes to rewards, it gives you one percent cash back on everything, but you can sign up for higher rewards from certain merchants.

Novickas said cards for parents are “A whole different animal.”

“Some of the best cards are those tied to where you’ll be shopping,” Novickas said.

She likes the Target Red Card, which gives you five percent back on everything you buy, from formula to groceries.  Or, if you don’t even want to leave your home, Novickas recommends the Amazon Reward Card, with three percent back.
