Offer: Get 75,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points when you spend $1,000 in the your first 3 months

This no-annual fee Hilton card comes with complimentary Hilton Silver status, earns bonus Hilton points on Hilton stays, US restaurants, US gas stations, and US supermarkets*.

*American Express defines a supermarket as offering a wide variety of food and household products such as meat, fresh produce, dairy, canned and packaged goods, household cleaners, pharmacy products and pet supplies. (Superstores, convenience stores and warehouse clubs are NOT considered supermarkets.)

NOTE: For the purposes of calculating your expected rewards, we are assuming that the spend you put in "Hotels" is all spent at Hilton portfolio hotels and resorts. If some is spent at other hotels, your actual rewards will be slightly lower.

Offer: Earn 20,000 Bonus Ultimate Rewards points (can be redeemed for $200) when you spend $500 within 3 months

A no-fee Chase card with rotating 5x Ultimate Rewards points earning categories. The categories change every 3 months and vary from gas to drug stores and anything in between. This card is excellent to have in conjunction with a Chase Sapphire Reserve or Chase Sapphire Preferred, both of which unlock transfers to airlines and hotels and an ability to combine your points between them.

Because the 5% bonus categories rotate, we cannot factor this into your spend. Therefore, your actual rewards will be higher than shown.

New: The Chase Freedom now earns 5X points on Lyft rides, every day.

This card is best combined with a Chase Sapphire Reserve, Chase Sapphire Preferred, or Chase Ink Business Preferred to unlock the power of transfer partners.

NOTE: This card can be used as cash back or as an Ultimate Rewards points card. In valuing your rewards, we assume you also have a Chase Sapphire Reserve, Chase Sapphire Preferred, or Chase Ink Business Preferred. You can then transfer points from this card to one of those to unlock the power of transfer partners. If you have this card without one of the above cards, your rewards value will be lower with each point worth exactly 1 cent.

Offer: 20,000 miles when you spend $1,000 within 3 months

This no-fee card offers 1.25x on all purchases and 5X on hotels and car rentals booked via Capital One Travel.

Compare this card with the standard Venture which earns 2x miles on all purchases. Spend your miles to erase purchases or transfer them to more than a dozen airlines.

Most people would fare better with the standard Capital One Venture card, despite its annual fee, because it earns at the rate of 2x per dollar instead of 1.25x.

1) The bonus value for the early spend bonus on this card assumes you will transfer the points to miles. If you use as a purchase eraser, the early spend bonus value will be $200, exactly.

2) 5X on Hotels and Car Rentals applies only when you book via Capital One's own travel service. Otherwise, you will earn the standard 2X miles.

Offer: Get 30,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy points after you spend $1,000 in your first 3 months

The Marriott Bonvoy Bold Credit Card is Chase's "no fee" entrant into the lineup of Marriott Bonvoy credit cards. It is similar to the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card but with no annual fee and no annual free night certificate. It also earns considerably less points per dollar spent.

Note When calculating your Estimated Rewards Values, Hotel spend will be considered "spend at Marriott Bonvoy hotels" for the purposes of calculating your potential reward values (in this case, 3X). Hotel spend at other brands will not earn the bonus multiplier and would only earn 2X Bonvoy points (the rate for all other travel).
