  • With an array of both luxury travel perks and small business benefits, this is the ultimate premium card for high-spenders.
  • Generous protections when using the card to make purchases that provide genuine peace of mind.
  • Amex Membership Rewards points are extremely valuable, especially for their ability to be transferred to hotel and airline partners.

Cons

  • High annual fee of $695

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.

  • With over $1,800 in available statement credits, this is a premium travel rewards card with benefits galore. (Terms apply.) Note: Aside from the listed bonus categories, earn 1X on all other eligible purchases.
  • The Platinum card hasn't shed its travel roots, but it’s expanded beyond to become a lifestyle card with perks like Uber, Saks Fifth Avenue, Equinox, and more. (Enrollment required)
  • Amex Membership Rewards points are extremely flexible, with the option to redeem for travel directly through Amex Travel or transfer to a wide range of airline and hotel partners.

Pros

  • A wide array of travel and lifestyle credits and exclusive access that can enhance your life.
  • There is no better card for the breadth and variety of airport lounge access worldwide. Plus, the Centurion Lounge network is the largest amongst credit card issuers.
  • One of the best cards to earn points on airfare: 5 points per dollar on airfare purchased directly with airlines or through the Amex Travel portal (on up to $500,000 of airfare purchases per calendar year).

Cons

  • High annual fee that will require a bit of work to fully maximize.
  • Besides airfare and select hotels, it's not the best card to use for other purchases as it only earns 1X on categories outside of flights booked directly with the airlines (5X) or through the Amex Travel portal (5X on up to $500,000 of airfare purchases per calendar year) and 5X points for prepaid hotels booked with Amex Travel.
  • Car rental insurance is only secondary, not primary as it is with premium cards from Chase and Capital One.

  • With a $300 annual travel credit and 10,000 miles (worth $100) each year at renewal, the credits you receive are actually worth more than the annual fee.
  • Free authorized user cards where the authorized user gets full airport lounge access of their own is unheard of.
  • Capital One Miles are extremely flexible, with the option to redeem for travel at a value of one cent per point, or transfer to a wide range of excellent air and hotel partners.

Pros

  • The annual fee is more than covered by annual credits
  • Comes with access to Capital One lounges, Priority Pass lounges, Plaza Premium lounges - all with generous guest policies
  • Free authorized users also get the same airport lounge access benefits and Hertz status as the primary card holder

Cons

  • The annual fee, while effectively negative $5 after credits, can feel like a lot.
  • Aside from bonus points for booking through Capital One travel, there are no bonus categories. Still, all eligible purchases do earn 2X miles per dollar spent which is great.
  • Points don't transfer to any domestic airlines, although you can use other partners to book domestic award tickets on domestic airlines.

It's worth noting that some Capital One cards earn 2 miles per dollar on everything, making the 1.6 cent per mile value an understatement as you'd be earning a 3.2% yield on every day spend. However, this assumes you will learn how to utilize the Capital One airline and hotel transfer partners, most of which transfer 1:1. The minimum value is 1 cent when used to book travel in their portal or to  cover previously paid for travel, however, our calculator assumes you will use Capital One's air and hotel transfer partners when calculating a 1.6 cent per point value. We also have a Guide to Capital One Miles.

  • Simple (and strong) flat-rate earning structure with 2X miles per dollar spent on almost all purchases.
  • Relatively modest $95 annual fee, especially considering how valuable Capital One Miles can be with the ability to either redeem for travel at a value of one cent per point, or transfer miles to a wide range of excellent hotel and airline partners.
  • Up to $100 statement credit to offset Global Entry or TSA PreCheck application fees and no foreign transaction fees.

Pros

  • Great sign-up bonus
  • Comes with two complimentary visits to Capital One lounges, Priority Pass lounges, or Plaza Premium lounges (Until Dec 31, 2024)
  • Hertz Five Star elite status

Cons

  • Not as strong travel protections as the more robust Capital One Venture X Credit Card
  • Only two free entries to airport lounges (until Dec 31, 2024), access thereafter is $45 per visit. (The Venture X has unlimited visits)
  • While the card is simple to use, there is effectively a lack of real bonus categories. Still, 2X miles on almost all purchases are solid

  • 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

When used on Wanna Get Away fares, 1.3 cents is the approximate value you get. On certain international routeswith high taxes, however, you may be able to yield close to 2 cents. Those are the exceptions to the rule, though, so I peg the value at 1.4 cents.

  • Potential to earn an Earned Choice Award every year by spending $60,000+ on this Marriott credit card in a calendar year
  • The card offers an up to $300 dining statement credit, which can cut down the annual fee by nearly half

Pros

  • Top-notch travel benefits, including Priority Pass Select airport lounge membership (enrollment required), Global Entry/TSA PreCheck reimbursement, trip cancellation and interruption insurance and more

Cons

While Marriott Bonvoy dropped all award charts in favor of a dynamic pricing system, it hasn't gotten out of hand and the 5th night free on awards can still provide outsized value. It's also hard to beat the breadth of Marriott Bonvoy properties all over the world.

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..

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.
