I want a credit card I can use to accumulate miles on United Air Lines and use it to pay for anything I want — then pay the card and use that towards the miles. Which card is best?

Answered on

You can use the Discover it Miles credit card to earn miles and then redeem them for United Air flights. The card allows to earn 1.5 miles on all purchases. The miles basically work like cash back rewards and therefore they cannot be transferred to any frequent flyer program. However, earned miles can... Continue reading
Hello I have two questions. One are there any credit cards that do not charge a 3% balance transfer fee. Secondly what is the best card to earn travel miles that you can actually use. Prefer Delta but open to all other carriers except Spirit.

I am trying to decide between the Blue Delta Skymiles card and the Discover it Miles card. I don’t really fly a lot but when I fly, I prefer Delta. Is it worth having a American Express Delta credit card or I’d better choose the one from Discover.

Which is the best credit card for travel rewards: Chase Sapphire Preferred ($95/year), the Discover it Miles ($0/year), or the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite ($89/year)? Cost is not an issue. Since the Sapphire card is good for British Airways is it also good for American Airlines? Also, is the 1:1 exchange rate under Chase lower than what you can exchange for a ticket with Discover? I don’t know if they use different conversion rates for free tickets. Thanks

Answered on

The Chase Sapphire Preferred card is good for travelers and those who also spend a lot on dining as it gives 2 points for travel and dining purchases. All other purchases earn only 1 point per dollar. The sign-up bonus is quite standard for travel cards - 50,000 points after spending $4,000 on purchases... Continue reading

A nice sign-up bonus was the reason I applied for British Airways credit card. But when I decided to use Avios, firstly, I couldn’t find available tickets and when I found, I notice that I should pay hefty fuel surcharges! It’s outrageously. What should I do to prevent such situations in the future?

Answered on

Your situation clearly demonstrates that even if you have enough miles for an award ticket it doesn't mean that you will get it. Unfortunately, low seat availability and fuel surcharges are the commomn practice for frequent flyer programs. Continue reading
Is a JP Morgan Credit Card a good idea? I just stumbled upon a JP Morgan Reserve credit card and I’m not sure if I need it.

Answered on

First of all, be cautious - this card is only for JP Morgan private clients. This means that you should have $10 million with Chase. If you don't qualify, then you won't be able to get this card. Basically, it's of no particular interest, as its benefits are the same as Chase Sapphire Reserve benefits.... Continue reading
