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 from our partners to help you find the best card to get you where you want to go, with a touch of class.

Mastercard® Gold Card™ review

Mastercard® Gold Card™

2.8 rating

Designed for well-heeled cardholders who can afford to pay a nearly four-figure annual fee, this splashy metal credit card offers surprisingly few rewards for a card of its kind; but elite travelers with a taste for luxury will appreciate the Gold Card’s exclusive discounts and services.

U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Card

2.7 rating

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. This offer is no longer available on our site.
