The next British invasion may hit your wallet instead of your music collection, with UK lending giant Barclays using its Barclaycard brand to make inroads into the American credit card market. For a few years now, Barclaycard has backed some recognizable retail and travel rewards cards bearing familiar brands like US Airways and Wyndham Hotels.
Where most popular cash-back credit cards offer one chance at rewards, the new Citi Double Cash is the only card that earns you cash back twice on every purchase -- 1 percent cash back when you buy and 1 percent cash back as you pay for those purchases, whether in full or over time.
"Like most parents, I spend plenty of time at different stores as well as shopping online. I like having an opportunity to earn additional cash back on those purchases with the rotating 5% categories – now including Amazon."
