Is there a credit card that will give me both frequent flyer miles and cash back?

Many of rewards credit cards today offer flexible redemption options. You can earn points or miles and then redeem them for travel – get flights, hotel rooms, car rentals, or receive cash back, gift cards, merchandize, discounts or donate earned rewards to charitable organizations, and more.
To choose the best rewards credit card for you, you should clearly understand your usual expenditures – purchase categories and amounts spent in each category. Then research credit cards with rewards to choose one that will offer best terms for you.
Compare purchase categories that can earn you more points per dollar spent. But watch out for set limits (e.g. you earn 2 points per dollar on your first $150 in a specific category, and then you get only 1 point per dollar), expiration dates and other restrictions.
And keep in mind that interest rates, annual fee and other possible charges are important. Advertisements may be misleading and raise your expectations more than the rewards are worth. Choose wisely!
