Travel Credit Cards

There are several kind of credit cards that can be used to redeem for free travel.

There are, of course, Airline Credit Cards, which allow you to rack up airline miles and come with perks like free checked bags and priority boarding.

There are Hotel Credit Cards which allow you to earn hotel points good for free stays and often come with perks like elite status (or credits towards elte status) and annual free nights.

Next are the four major transferable point currencies, meaning you can transfer your points to a variety of airline and hotel partners and you aren’t locked into one program that may or may not have availability when you want it:

You can see all four major bank card currencies below:

Credit Cards That Earn Chase Ultimate Rewards Points

Credit Cards That Earn American Express (Amex) Membership Rewards Points

Credit Cards That Earn Capital One Miles

Credit Cards That Earn Citi ThankYou Points

And lastly, there are cards like the Venture from Capital One and the Spark Miles Business Credit Card from Capital One which let you erase travel purchases with your points and cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, Chase Sapphire Reserve, and  Chase Ink Preferred with which you can transfer the points to partners or redeem inside their travel booking portal at a set rate. 

We base our ratings below on the value of the points of each card multiplied by the amount of the bonus. Pretty simple!
