Study: Credit card rewards getting better

SAN FRANCISCO

Nearly half of the time, cash-back credit cards offer higher payouts for certain spending categories like gasoline or groceries.

Bankrate.com says big spenders should either consider cards that pay 2-percent rewards on all purchases, or cards that offer an annual bonus.

Another thing to look for in a card is a signing bonus. Many reward cards now offer upfront cash or points just for signing up.
