  • Amazing Membership Rewards points earning rate for 6 popular business spending categories
  • No Preset Spending Limit
  • Card membership includes the very well regarded American Express customer service

Pros

  • You can't beat the 4X points on 2 out of the following 6 categories each month: U.S. advertising and media, U.S. gas stations, U.S. electronic goods retailers and software & cloud system providers, U.S. restaurants, U.S. wireless telephone service providers, and U.S. Transit
  • Although the annual fee seems high, if you max out the 4X on $150,000 in purchases, that earns you 600,000 Membership Rewards points which Your Best Credit Cards values at around $10,000
  • Card membership includes the very well regarded American Express customer service

Cons

  • The high annual fee, despite being worth it for high spenders
  • If you spend well over $150,000 a year in these categories, you may max it out and remaining spend earns at just 1X.
  • Car rental CDW coverage is secondary to your own auto insurance

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.

Hyatt award rates range from 3,500 to 45,000 points per night at their regular hotels and resorts. At all-inclusive resorts and Miraval, the prices can reach as high as 58,000 points per night, Almost without fail, during even remotely peak times, we can find roughly 2 cents per point in value. You can even book Suites for incrementally more points (Premium Suite costs twice as much as a room, for example). I tend to find these are one of the best ways to spend Chase Ultimate Rewards points which transfer 1:1. They are the only major hotel program in the US with fixed award charts making it a great program to be able to set goals for your redemptions..

Since AAdvantage moved to revenue based redemptions, they are a bit less valuable than they used to be. However, they can still book First and Business Class seats on oneworld partner airlines like Qatar Airways and Japan Airlines, and we also find that they can have occasional deals with forward cabin seats on American.

The Sapphire Reserve, Sapphire Preferred, and Ink Preferred all have the ability to transfer to airline and hotel partners. We use an average value that you can expect to get by utilizing your points for these transfer partners. If you do not have at least one of these cards, Ultimate Rewards are worth exactly 1 cent per point. Also keep in mind that when you redeem your points, you can elect to book travel through the Ultimate Rewards portal where the Sapphire Preferred and Ink Preferred have a point value of 1.25 cents per point and the Sapphire Reserve has points worth 1.5 cents each. You can move points freely between your Ultimate Rewards cards, i.e. from a Chase Freedom Unlimited to a Chase Sapphire Reserve. You can also read our Guide to Chase Ultimate Rewards points.

  • 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.

Since AAdvantage moved to revenue based redemptions, they are a bit less valuable than they used to be. However, they can still book First and Business Class seats on oneworld partner airlines like Qatar Airways and Japan Airlines, and we also find that they can have occasional deals with forward cabin seats on American.

  • Very high earn rate for all spend at Hilton properties (12X)
  • Comes with complimentary Hilton Gold elite status
  • Offers the ability to spend your way to up to two free nights at any Hilton property in the world

Pros

  • If you stay at Hilton Hotels often, the 12X earn rate on Hilton Hotels will really add up.
  • Comes with 10 Priority Pass airport lounge visits annually
  • Includes mid-tier Hilton Gold status, a way to spend to Diamond status, and you can spend your way to up to two free nights at 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.
  • The 10 Priority Pass visits that come with the Hilton Honors American Express Business Card are not valid at airport restaurants that otherwise participate in the Priority Pass program as all Priority Passes offered by American Express exclude this benefit.

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.

Cons

  • Unlike some competitors, there are no included travel insurance or trip protection benefits in case something goes wrong

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.
