I’ll cut straight to the chase: crypto rewards cards, such as the Coinbase Card, give solid cashback rewards when you buy carbon offsets or make traditional purchases. Here are my recommendations (note that technically, these are debit cards, not credit cards):

  • Coinbase Card: 4% cashback in Stellar (XLM) or The Graph (GRT). No staking requirements. No additional fees (as long as you pay in USDC, which I strongly recommend).
  • Crypto.com Card: Variable cashback depending on CRO stake. Depending on how comfortable you are investing in CRO, this may be a good option for you. For full details, see this website: https://crypto.com/us/cards. With a $4,000 CRO stake, you can earn 2% cashback, with a $40,000 CRO stake, you can earn 3% cashback, and with a $400,000 CRO stake, you can earn 5% cashback. Even if you plan to use a Coinbase Card for paying for carbon offsets, it may be worth it to get a Crypto.com Card for free Spotify and Netflix (you get reimbursements in CRO). Again, see the crypto.com website for more details.
