I used to have the Fairmont credit card, and I really like the features that it came with. Ever since I stopped travelling, I had no use for the Fairmont hotel credit card though. I was wondering if there are any other credit cards with similar features that you would be able to recommend?

Well, that depends on what feature was it that you liked most about the Fairmont card. Was it the reasonable APR? If that is the case you may want to take a look into a low interest credit card. These are credit cards that are offered by various banks, which are made specifically for individuals seeking a credit card with a low APR. Or if it was access to the Fairmont president’s club that you enjoyed, there really aren’t too many credit cards I would be able to recommend.

But you noted that you have stopped traveling so this is probably not a perk you need. Look for a rewards card like the Discover it® Miles. This card allows you to earn unlimited 1.5 miles on all purchases and redeem them for any travel expenses, including hotel stays. What is more, all the miles you earn are doubled at the end of the first year, providing you’re a new cardmember. For example, if you earn 30,000 miles, you get 60,000 miles. No annual fee and no foreign transaction fee are also advantages of this card.
