Have a rewards credit card? The holiday season is a great time to cash in your points. Or apply them as a statement credit after the holidays.

Rewards points accrued through loyalty programs at drugstores like Walgreens and CVS are another way to stretch your gift budget. Look for “free after rebate” items, especially during the holiday season.

If your credit card is not reaping cash-back or points rewards for your shopping, find a low-fee one that does. But not all rewards cards are alike. Use Money Talks News’ free credit card search tool to find the best cards for you. The tool’s menu (at the left) lets you choose and compare the best for cash back or travel rewards.
