If you are new to miles and points rewards, consider applying for a credit card with fixed-value miles. For example, it will be easier for you to use a travel rewards credit card from a major bank. Such cards usually allow to earn equal miles or points on all purchases and redeem them towards travel expences. The redemption rules are rather easy to understand as in most cases you simply add two zeros to the price of a ticket to see how many miles you’ll need. No airline limits, you can redeem with any airline you wish. Also, miles can be redeemed for cash. Another good thing about regular travel rewards cards is that they often come without an annual fee and almost all of them have no foreign transaction fees. Once you become familliar with rewards, you may want to get an airline credit card.
