Full Review:
The Susan G. Komen® Credit Card is a terrific cash back card that contributes money to the Susan G. Komen® fund. For each new card activated within 90 days of opening the Komen® fund will receive $3, as well as an ongoing 0.08% of all retail purchases made with the card. Bank of America has pledged to contribute 3.0 million in conjunction with its Pink Ribbon Banking credit card and checking program through 2020.

Just like its sister card the BankAmericard Cash Rewards credit card, the cash back rewards are generous. You'll earn 3% cash back on gas and 2% cash back at wholesale clubs and grocery stores on up to $2,500 in combined gas, wholesale club and grocery store purchases each quarter, and 1% cash back on all other purchases. The 2% back at wholesale clubs can come in pretty handy if you do a decent amount of shopping at these establishments. You'll also get a $100 online-exclusive bonus after you spend at least $500 on purchases in the first 90 days of account opening (note: the card must be applied for online to receive the bonus).

Cardholders can save money with a 0% introductory APR for 12 billing cycles on purchases and any balance transfers made in the first 60 days, after that a 13.49% - 23.49% Variable APR will apply. The balance transfer fee is 3% of the transferred amount, but it might be worth it depending upon your situation. To find out, use our free and easy Balance Transfer Calculator.

This card will particularly appeal to Bank of America customers, as it offers them an ongoing 10% cash reward bonus when they redeem their cash back rewards directly into their Bank of America® checking or savings account. And if you're a Gold, Platinum or Platinum Honors Bank of America® Preferred Rewards customer, you can increase that bonus to 25% to 75%.

Overall the Susan G. Komen® Credit Card is a great choice for anyone who wants to help contribute to an excellent charity while earning strong cash back rewards (2% back at wholesale clubs!).
