I am from Turkey but I fly to the US on business a lot. I like Turkish airlines and I’d like to get some cash on business flights and probably earn a vacation. What card can you suggest for faster earning?

First of all, you need to decide what you spend on most. Flying Turkish Airlines is good, but it won’t earn you a lot of miles let alone a vacation flight. If you want to accumulate plenty of miles, think in terms of a universal cards that you can take with you on your trips and earn on additional expenditures, including accommodation, dining and other purchases. That way you’ll spend a lot and earn even more. The dream card that will allow you to multiply your rewards is the Discover it® Miles card – you get 1.5 miles per dollar on all purchases and at the end of the first year all the miles you’ve earned are matched (provided you are a new cardmember)! All your spendings combined, this is more than enough for a vacation trip: for example, if you earn 50,000 miles, you’ll get 100,000 miles, and that equals more than one roundtrip international flight.
