Some of the rewards offered by the Chrysler MasterCard aren't nearly as good as the GM Flexible Earnings Card. The GM card gives you three percent back on all of your spendings, not just at GM dealerships, which you can use toward a new car. However, the card that's right for you may depend more so on what car you'd like to buy and the offers from that manufacturer.
