Expert review

The Belk Rewards Mastercard® is a simple store credit card that offers almost everything you’d expect from a standard store card. You’ll enjoy up to 20% off on purchases the day you open your card account, 3% back on Belk and Belk.com purchases, 2% back on eligible gas and grocery purchases and 1% back everywhere else, and a welcome offer of points after you make your first Belk purchase with your card.

Pretty standard stuff as far as store cards go, though the initial discount for opening your account offers some interesting opportunities for big savings. The biggest downside to this card is the brand and mediocre earning rate.

Belk isn’t exactly the largest retailer out there (my attempts at finding a local store seemed to place most of them in Texas). That means for most consumers, the only option to use this card will be through the Belk website.

Consider a virtual card for store payments

Bottom line

If you’re a diehard Belk fan, this rewards card can help you earn decent rewards on your purchases, with room for rewards growth depending on how much you spend at Belk. But the niche nature of this retailer and smaller earning rate compared to other big store cards leaves this credit card lacking.

Compare your store credit card options to find one that best fits your spending needs.
