Best Credit Cards for Price Protection [2019]

Ancillary benefits such as price protection don’t sound quite as sexy as free flights or five-star hotels, but there’s every possibility you’ll receive more dollar value from card benefits than credit card rewards over the life of your card.

Devaluation Of Citi Price Rewind Benefit (Price Protection)

Doctor of Credit has confirmed with Citi that they are devaluing their price protection, by reducing the benefits of their Citi Price Rewind. The new rules will come into effect July 29, 2018. The move topples Citi from near top of the price protection benefit and comes as a further disappointment after Chase dropped its price protection recently.

Chase Eliminating Price & Return Protection on Credit Cards

Chase has quietly eliminated Price Protection and Return Protection from nearly all of its cards. When you visit the landing page of most Chase cards and click on Service & protection or Travel & purchase coverage, you will no longer see either benefit listed as a card feature.
