Creditnet's Five Best Credit Cards of 2013

One of my favorite things about the end of the year are all the lists that come out; some are reflective and rank the best of the year, while others look to the future and what's to come. 

At Creditnet, we like to think we're always looking ahead. That's why we've come up with our list of the five best credit cards of 2013, so you can get a head start on which credit cards work best for you in the coming year. Whether you're a home-body or a busy bee, there's a credit card below sure to make the most of your purchases.

Without further ado...

Best Cash Back Credit Card: Chase Freedom® Card

Best 0% Interest Card: Citi Simplicity Card

The Citi Simplicity Card has one of the longest 0% interest intro periods on purchases and balance transfers of any card on the market. Like its name, this credit card is "simple" - that's what you want out of a 0% interest card, right? There are also no late payment fees, no annual fee and no over-the-limit fees. If you're looking to consolidate your finances onto one simple credit card in 2013, in our eyes you can't do better than the Citi Simplicity Card. Make 2013 the year you pay ZERO interest and consider Citi Simplicity.

Best Airline Miles Card: Chase United MileagePlus Explorer Card

Best Credit Card for Bad Credit: Capital One Secured MasterCard

Long one of our favorite bad credit credit cards, 2013 is a great year to own a Capital One Secured MasterCard if building credit is your New Year's Resolution. Few cards for bad credit make building your credit more transparent. The annual fee on this credit card is low, and the amount of fees in general attached to this card are minimal. Overall, this is one of the best credit cards to own if you're hoping to improve your credit score in 2013.

Best Travel Rewards Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card
