What the Critics Are Saying...


ValuePenguin

The IKEA® Visa® Credit Card is great for IKEA purchases, though its restrictive rewards structure make it difficult to recommend to those that visit the store infrequently. For more flexible rewards with no annual fee, consider a cash back credit card such as the Citi® Double Cash Card.

- Bailey Peterson, ValuePenguin
Investopedia

The IKEA Visa credit card could be a good fit for DIY-ers and people who love to shop IKEA for their home. This card is also appealing for earning a solid percentage back on dining, groceries, and utilities if you typically charge those purchases. Plus, it has no annual fee.

- Rebecca Lake, Investopedia

You’ll earn rewards at a nice clip with the IKEA Visa Credit Card, but since you can only redeem Rewards Certificates at IKEA, the card will be of little use to anyone but the store’s most loyal shoppers.

- Nouri Zarrugh, CreditCards.com
Finder

The IKEA Visa credit card offers excellent rewards for IKEA purchases. It also offers strong rewards for everyday purchases, so you can quickly earn reward certificates even if you’re not a frequent IKEA shopper.

Unless you plan to furnish your house entirely in Ikea furniture over a long time period, you may be better off with a card that pays simple cash-back rewards and doesn’t require complicated instructions for redemptions.
