I’m a frequent flyer of Emirates airlines, but I don’t want their credit card due to the high annual fee. Is there any credit card that you can offer?

Airlines credit card are known to have annual fees, and those are high enough to repel a lot of frequent flyers. Why give the airline your earnings back? Surely, you’d like to earn miles and keep them. Besides, airline credit cards tie you to a specific airline and make it hard to redeem miles on other airlines that you may also fly.

You won’t encounter such problems with the Discover it® Miles. This is the card that is designed specifically to ease the life of travelers. There’s no card as easy and effective as this one. It combines all that you love in travel cards – good mileage accrual, cheap maintenance and versatility.

Namely, you earn 1.5 miles for each purchase with the Discover it® Miles. If you put most of your purchases on this card, you’ll face a massive sum at the end of the year. And then Discover is there to meet you with its special perk – all the miles that you have earned the first year are matched (provided you are a new cardmember), making it twice as many miles. Discover has no annual fee and no foreign transaction fee. Miles never expire and you can earn any number of them. And finally, Discover it® Miles also works great as a card for major purchases as it has a 14-month 0% intro APR on purchases (when the introductory interest rate is over, the ongoing APR will apply). Enjoy your purchases and vacations with Discover.
