Aeroplan does not pass along any fuel surcharges, making this a great program for Star Alliance flights. Two huge additional benefits are a stopover on your trip for just 5,000 miles and a lap infant (under 2) is just $25 CAD. One small negative is that they do have fees for cancelling an award ticket.

Pros

  • For a pure combination of spending on dining, groceries, and airfare, the American Express Gold card is unmatched

  • Earns valuable American Express Membership rewards points and card membership includes the highly regarded American Express customer service

Cons

Instant Transfers as well as solid transfer partners. The value would go up if they had any hotel partners with a fair exchange rate. ANA (an exception to instant transfers), Virgin, Air Canada and Avianca are top airline partners for maximizing your points. They can also transfer to Delta if you wish and while the rates aren't ideal, they can transfer to Marriott and Hilton as well.  ANA provides almost unbeatable value for booking a Round the World flight all in Business Class. The stated value also assumes you will take advantage of transfer partners rather than book via their booking portal, where they are only worth between 1 and 1.5 cents. We've also created a Guide to American Express Membership Rewards.

  • Earn a free night award every year worth up to 35,000 Marriott Bonvoy points
  • Earn an outstanding 6X points per dollar for stays at Marriott Bonvoy hotels and resorts.
  • Automatic Marriott Bonvoy Silver elite status, with a pathway to Gold status every year by spending $35,000+ on the card

Pros

  • The annual free night award on the card is worth around $210 based on our estimations - more than double the $95 annual fee
  • The card is especially rewarding on Marriott purchases, with the ability to earn an excellent 6X multiplier at Marriott Bonvoy properties
  • Great travel card all around, thanks to travel protections and no foreign transaction fees

Cons

  • $95 annual fee
  • Silver elite status doesn't provide many perks on its own, so it's worth it to achieve Gold status or upgrade to a higher-tier Marriott Bonvoy credit card
  • Only earns 2x Marriott Bonvoy points per dollar after reaching the $6,000 cap on combined purchases on grocery stores, gas stations and dining

  • Very high earn rate for all spend at Hilton properties (12X)
  • Comes with complimentary Hilton Gold elite status
  • Offers the ability to earn a valuable Free Night Reward with $15,000 in spend in a calendar year

Pros

  • If you stay at Hilton Hotels often, the 12X earn rate on Hilton Hotels will really add up.
  • Includes mid-tier Hilton Gold status, a way to spend to Diamond status
  • Spend your way to a Free Night Reward valid at almost any Hilton property in the world

Cons

  • The card only earns Hilton Honors points, so you would not be able to redeem them for stays at other hotel chains.
  • Earning a specific type of co-branded point, like Hilton Honors points, limits your redemption opportunities and your points balance may be worth less over time if the program changes how points are redeemed via a devaluation of the loyalty program.
  • The Free Night Reward available with this card requires $15,000 in annual (calendar year) spend

Since Hilton moved to a variable pricing model, on average you'll be offered roughly a 0.5 cent value per point. What is nice is that although the pricing is mostly variable, they still cap the "standard" redemption rate on all properties. With the 5th night free on all award stays and resort fees waived on award stays, it's very possible to well exceed this value - even getting 1-2 cents per point - when used wisely.

  • Earn triple points from five distinct spending categories from air travel and hotels to restaurants, supermarkets, gas stations
  • Take advantage of World Elite Mastercard perks, like Lyft and DoorDash perks and extended warranty protection
  • Citi ThankYou points are extremely flexible, with the ability to utilize an array of 14 airline and two hotel transfer partners to get the most bang for your buck on travel

Pros

  • The $95 annual fee can be completely offset by the $100 hotel credit
  • Redeem Citi ThankYou points for a variety of travel, including the ability to transfer points to a total of 16 airline and hotel programs
  • Generous welcome bonus

Cons

  • Unlike some competitors, there are no included travel insurance or trip protection benefits in case something goes wrong
  • Citi ThankYou points can only be transferred to airline programs (no hotels) and of them, the partners are more obscure international airlines
  • Weaker on travel perks, with no airport lounge access or TSA PreCheck/Global Entry reimbursement

If you have a Citi Premier card or a legacy Citi Prestige card, you can transfer your points to Citi's full range of airline and hotel partners. Other ThankYou points-earning cards can be pooled with your Premier or Prestige to unlock airline and hotel program transfers. We calculate that you can get an average of 1.6 cents per point when redeeming this way. If you have any other Citi ThankYou point cards and do not have a Premier or Prestige, then your ThankYou points are worth 1 cent each.

Delta uses a fully dynamic pricing model on most awards, with the program aiming to offer you about 1.1 to 1.2 cents per point. However, you can still occasionally get much more value, especially during SkyMiles Flash Sales. Note that while you can book SkyTeam alliance flights with Delta SkyMiles, you cannot book international First Class on any SkyMiles partner.

Delta uses a fully dynamic pricing model on most awards, with the program aiming to offer you about 1.1 to 1.2 cents per point. However, you can still occasionally get much more value, especially during SkyMiles Flash Sales. Note that while you can book SkyTeam alliance flights with Delta SkyMiles, you cannot book international First Class on any SkyMiles partner.

Instant Transfers as well as solid transfer partners. The value would go up if they had any hotel partners with a fair exchange rate. ANA (an exception to instant transfers), Virgin, Air Canada and Avianca are top airline partners for maximizing your points. They can also transfer to Delta if you wish and while the rates aren't ideal, they can transfer to Marriott and Hilton as well.  ANA provides almost unbeatable value for booking a Round the World flight all in Business Class. The stated value also assumes you will take advantage of transfer partners rather than book via their booking portal, where they are only worth between 1 and 1.5 cents. We've also created a Guide to American Express Membership Rewards.

APR: 0 % Intro APR (on purchases for 12 months, 18.49%-26.49% thereafter)
