Best no annual fee credit cards - U.S.

It's possible to get a great rewards card with no annual fee. The cards listed below have no annual fee in the first year as well as no annual fee in subsequent years. However, it's also possible that the extra rewards you can earn from a card with an annual fee will more than offset the annual fee. Our calculated annual reward values have the annual fee subtracted from them to allow you to do an easy apples-to-apples comparison of cards. So you may want to relax your no annual fee constraint by adjusting the Ongoing Annual Fee slider under the "More" (Sifters) tab. Note that you can also filter your card list by both the 1st Year Annual Fee as well as the Ongoing Annual Fee by using the search fields under those column headings.
