Is it better to get reward points on a credit card or take get a 0% finance loan financed for 12 months and put the money in a CD or something instead.

It completely depends on how much you spend per year. If the value of the points that you receive per year equals or exceeds the rate of the credit card, then that is your best option.

If you pay off the 2 k before before you start paying intrest by all means put the money in a CD and take the reward points. If you do not intendend to pay the bill off before the 0% goes away it is not a really great deal, considering instrest rates are 12 to 30% and they will go back to the date of purchase to charge the intrest rate on the remaining balance. I hope this helps.

no you can have either 0% loan financing for 12 months OR get the credit card reward points not both, one or the other. Which is best?

If you really want to finance it the 0% financing is much better. If you can pay upfront, the points are better.
