Luxury Credit Cards - Reviews
Luxury travel cards typically come with a high annual fee, but if you are a frequent flyer who enjoys luxury perks and can budget a fee of $200 or more, don’t let the price tag trip you up. Most elite cards are teeming with valuable perks -- such as airport lounge access, travel credits, luxury travel insurance, elite status benefits and luxury hotel perks -- that easily surpass the card’s annual fee. We’ve reviewed the top luxury cards to help you find the best card to get you where you want to go, with a touch of class.
U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Card

The U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve card unfortunately falls short on its airline lounge offering, but it does feature an extensive list of luxury benefits and an excellent rewards program that includes a generous travel credit, a bonus on travel purchases and a 50 percent boost in point value for travel redemptions.

The Platinum Card® from American Express

The American Express Platinum card carries one of the highest annual fees for a card in its class and a rewards rate that pales in comparison to similar cards; however, you can’t beat its extensive list of luxury travel perks, including access to exclusive Centurion lounges.
