Best Index Cards in 2020



AmazonBasics Ruled Index Flash Cards, Assorted Neon Colored, 4x6 Inch, 300-Count - AMZ99755 Review:


Excellent card stock, bright colors, easy fit in my new Acrimet 3 x 5 Card File Holder (also 5 star review) and are packed in 100 count individually wrapped packages that are then wrapped all together in an outer clear cellophane for a total count of 300. Perfect! I'm using these as visual subcategories to help me spot the business addresses from the family/friend addresses, City Services (water, trash, streets), and favorite customer service numbers for contacting services from A-Z (Amazon to Social Security). I use the white index cards for the generally basic information, websites, phone numbers, office hours, work, birthdays, anniversary, etc.) that do not change, and colored cards for information that changes frequently, but I don't want to rewrite all the information that doesn't usually change. Lots of uses for these!



AmazonBasics Heavy Weight Ruled Lined Index Cards, White, 3x5 Inch Card, 100-Count - AMZ63500 Review:


I have been studying for a big test. I was having trouble studying, since sharpies and highlighters often bleed through blank index cards (showing the answer). I decided to try thicker index cards, so I purchased the AmazonBasics Heavy Weight Ruled Index Cards.

I tested the cards to determine the thickness of the paper by using a black sharpie, pink highlighter, green highlighter, gold sharpie, and yellow highlighter on the front of the card. If you put the index cards on a surface, you can really only see the black and gold sharpies bleeding into the back of the paper. If you hold the index cards up, all the markers have bled through to the other side.

The cards are moderately thick, not extremely thick (like the word “heavy weight” has led me to believe). I took away one star for the card thickness.

Overall, I believe the index cards are fine and I would purchase them again. They deserve FOUR STARS!

Oxford Heavyweight Ruled Index Cards, 3" x 5", White, 100 Per Pack (63500) Review:


These are only actually heavy compared to the super cheapo thin ones that everyone else seems to sell. Their thickness reminds me of what was standard for index cards a few decades ago, before most companies started selling super thin index cards and calling those normal.

The thickness should be satisfactory for most uses. The card does not bend when you stand it up on any of its edges.

Sharpie test: If I write with a thick sharpie on one side, the sharpie does through to the other side a bit if I hold the index card up in the air, but it is barely visible if I turn the card over on the table.

If I were using these for flashcards, I would use a writing utensil lighter than a sharpie. A regular pen doesn't show through at all.



Oxford Neon Index Cards, 3" x 5", Ruled, Assorted Colors, 300 Per Pack (81300EE) Review:


First of all, let me say that more cards arrived than I thought would. Don't let the stock image fool you--there are three packs of what would be a standard stack of index cards. I don't understand the other reviews that say that they are flimsy. They are definitely not as thin as a sheet of paper.

Also, the cards are bright. I'm talking highlighter bright. That's good for flash cards and since they come in 4 different colors, you can separate your topics. I have finals coming up in a couple of weeks and this is what I'll be using to study for them.

I tried a bunch of different pens, markers, highlighters, and pencils to see if any of them would bleed through to the other side and the only thing that did was a Sharpie. But then again, it's a Sharpie, and Sharpies can go through poster boards if they wanted to. I can't see through the cards standing but if you hold them up to a light you can see through them.

All and all they are good, sturdy index cards. Would recommend if you want some bright cards for studying.

Oxford Ruled Index Cards, 3" x 5", White, 1,000 Cards (10 Packs of 100) (31) Review:


I am preparing to take my Real estate exam soon. I used notebooks to write down the million things one must learn in order to ace the challenging NC exam. I found that notebooks simply don't work for me. I feel unorganized and find myself running out of space cramming words all over the place. I bought this index set as multiple packs. I should definitely not worry about running out anytime soon. They are thin, but that does not bother me. I am now confident and organized as I transfer study notes from notebook to the cards. Small size cards, yet; very spacious. I use both sides to write info. Now I am studying and reading essential information with clarity. Five stars indeed.



AmazonBasics Ruled Lined Index Cards - 3x5 Inches (10 Packs of 100) Review:


I'm a college student and this package has been quite handy for study notes. I have to admit that although I'm perfectly capable of counting I was still was still unaware of EXACTLY how much came in this package. This is a looooooot of cards... I underestimated how large a package of 1000 index cards would be and am incredibly thankful that in the same order I purchased a note-card organizer... The benefit of these over a few of the larger packages of note cards I've seen at certain competitors is that they're individually wrapped by 100 cards each, so you don't have to have one giant stack of lose cards the minute you need just one.



Oxford Blank Index Cards, 3" x 5", White, 1,000 Cards (10 Packs of 100) (30) Review:


I use these index cards for both home, and office. I usually prefer white, as I label them for my office needs. We also use these cards for games, and basically to label many items at home, such as dinners in plastic containers to store in the freezer. They are light in weight, but serve the purpose for a variety of needs.

In addition, over the last 15 years, I've spent too much money when purchasing index cards in office supply stores at many locations. I receive many more from ordering on Amazon, I don't need to waste valuable work time to drive to stores, and wait on cashier lines. Most important, this is a great bargain price.

For office, I almost use everyday, and create my own labels from these cards. They come in handy, and are right at my finger-tips. We use these for certain games, such as clue, when you run out of cards that came with the game, but can still play the game. We use these as keeping score cards, as well as labels for several products in my home. We are very satisfied, as these index cards come in handy for many uses. This is where I will indeed order again. Highly recommended!



Oxford Ruled Color Cards, 5" x 8", Assorted Colors, 100 Per Pack (35810) Review:


I love these large index cards. I use them for recipes (a recipe will actually fit). I also use them for studying. I find it much more helpful to have tips all listed in one card so that when I am reviewing questions, I have the formulas that I find most difficult right in front of me instead of having to flip through the text. This helps me memorize better for test day. The cards are very durable and they don't bleed through if you use gel pens. Love these!!!
