I would like to apply the Miles&More credit card, but I noticed that the annual fee is $89. I’m reluctant to pay the annual fee for the card. Are there any ways around it?

The content is accurate at the time of publication and is subject to change.

Barclays doesn’t waive the annual fee, so you have to pay it straight away. Moreover, according to the Terms&Conditions, in order to receive the sign-up bonus miles, you need to pay your annual fee first, otherwise you won’t get it. Doesn’t sound very comforting, does it? But there is actually a way around it. Don’t get the Miles&More card! If you are after the miles, you can get them in a bunch of other ways. Specifically, acquiring a travel credit card will absolutely solve your miles problems and give you tons of easily earned miles. The Discover it® Miles will be even more generous with its 1.5-for-all motto. Spend with Discover, and wonder how you’ve managed to collect that many miles at the end of the year.
