Do You Recommend This Credit Card?

Yes
This is a niche credit card for people who make several purchases through PayPal or like to buy stuff on eBay. This can be a good substitute for those that lack a gas credit card as its interest rate and rewards are similar.
Who Will Get the Most Out of This Credit Card
PayPal users that make many of their online purchases through the PayPal service.

Is The Interest Rate Competitive

The APR for purchases and balance transfers will range from 19.99% to 23.99% depending on the applicants credit history. The APR for cash advances is 26.99%, which is on the higher end of the spectrum. I suggest using cash advance for emergency purposes only. Account holders receive 0% interest rate offers throughout the year. Be sure to read each offer carefully as they may be restricted towards specific types of transactions.

How Do You Like the Rewards

This card offers a surprisingly robust rewards program. Not only do you earn 2 points per dollar spent on PayPal and eBay purchases you also receive 3 points per dollar spent at gas stations and restaurants. This gives cardholders a broad rewards system that lets you earn points while shopping online as well as on the go.
If you are a person that likes to keep all their finances on one credit card the Extras MasterCard is a good choice to do just that.
Let's not forget all other MasterCard purchases net 1 point per dollar. The only downside is you are limited to earning 50,000 points in a year.
