Airline card reviews

Airline Credit Cards - Reviews

An airline rewards card may seem like a no-brainer if you are a loyal customer of a particular airline, but frequent travelers of all stripes can reap great benefits from these cards. Airline cards come with some of the most generous sign-up bonuses in the rewards card industry, as well as very valuable perks such as free checked bags and discounted companion fares. The free airfare earned and the savings on travel expenses can easily outmatch the cost of a yearly membership fee.

We've reviewed and rated airline cards based on their value and utility. We calculate and compare the value of sign-up bonuses and rewards miles. We also consider how easy it is to redeem those miles, and the overall coverage that the airline offers, to help you select an airline card that takes you where you really want to go.

Value conscious travelers who live near a Spirit Airlines will appreciate this budget card’s unusually generous rewards rate, which offers 2 points for every dollar spent on any purchase; but cardholders who want more flexibility may be turned off by Spirit Airlines’ hidden fees and restrictive rules on redemption.

JetBlue Plus card review

JetBlue Plus card

0 rating

The value of TrueBlue points is high, but the JetBlue Plus card doesn’t offer  many options for redeeming those points outside of JetBlue flights and vacations, and the card is of little use to cardholders who don’t live in a city served by JetBlue Airways. This offer is no longer available.

The LifeMiles Visa Signature card is a decent card for fans of Avianca Airlines; but, unless you travel frequently to Central America or Colombia, you won’t get much value out of this airline card. This offer is no longer available.
