Credit Cards for Frequent Flyers

Frequent flyers can earn travel rewards through two types of cards

  • airline-branded credit cards: for those who always fly one preferred airline, book their travel in advance and have flexible dates. These cards offer the biggest rewards, including sign-on bonuses that are enough for a free domestic round-trip ticket.
  • travel (or bank-sponsored) credit cards: for those who prefer flexibility of using earned rewards on any airline, any time. You can earn points or miles toward travel on any airline, which then can be redeemed for cash. And cash are easy to use toward your ticket purchase.

Some programs give you points, some give you miles - usually one point or mile per dollar spent, sometimes more. A couple of banks let you transfer your travel reward points to other airlines, but others don't. Find out how your rewards program works, where you can redeem your miles, and what the value of a point or mile is before you sign up, so you can choose the card that give you the most value.

Many airline reward cards carry annual fees, and some of them can be steep. Don't discount a card just because it has an annual fee, however. Think about how you'll use the card and calculate the value of the rewards you can earn. If the rewards are higher than the annual fee, the card will be worth the fee.
