One of the tremendous benefits of using a credit card is the ability to earn cash back on your everyday transactions. The smart credit card consumers will analyze their expenditures and get a card that pays the most rewards on their top categories of expenditures.

Everyone has to buy groceries, so it is good to know which credit cards pay some of the top grocery rewards. Here are some of those cards:

Capital One® Savor® Cash Rewards Card
