Here’s the thing about credit cards:
If you’re going on a champagne-and-caviar-infused shopping spree, credit cards aren’t for you. Stick with cash.
But if you’re responsible with credit cards, they create an EXCELLENT opportunity to enjoy mega-perks like airline miles and cash back.
Personally, I accumulate enough credit card reward miles every year for at least two+ round-trip tickets to Europe or Asia, flying in luxurious business class.
That’s better than any bonus I could’ve gotten at work. (Back in those tiresome 9-to-5 days.)
What are some of my favorite cards for free travel?
Here are the top-rated airline miles cards. My partner website, CardRatings, keeps this list up-to-date with the latest offers and bonuses.
- Here are the top travel cards.
- Here are the top hotel rewards cards.
- If you want one of my favorite deals, here’s the Chase Sapphire Preferred card, which Money Magazine named as a ‘Best Travel Credit Card.’ Check it out to see how it stacks up against other travel cards.
These cards are excellent choices for anyone who’s been bitten by the travel bug. Paying for airfare sucks. Why not use miles, instead?
“Hey Paula, I’m not into travel. What else is out there?”
While we’re at it, here are the top cards …
… if you prefer cash back.
… if you run a small business.
… if you’re trying to rebuild your credit.
If you’re an entrepreneur and prefer cash back, check out the Chase Ink Business Cash card. It was named “Best Rewards Card for Small Business Owners” by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, July 2017. Check it out to see how it compares to other business cards.
P.S. When you use these links and apply for a card I may receive a commission. This means you help support this website AND enjoy free airfare! 🙂
