Cards of the month are cards that have higher than usual welcome offers. For the month of November, here are the ones that caught our attention.
Before we dive in, I usually recommend these cards for people who are over Chase 5/24. If you are still under 5/24, I recommend going for travel cards like the Chase Hyatt or the United Explorer card.
