Travel Credit Cards - Reviews

We’ve reviewed a variety of hotel, airline and general rewards cards to determine which cards offer the most worth. Our ratings consider not only the monetary value rewards and sign-up bonuses, but also the ease of the redemption and the total value of each card’s features. Our goal is to help you find a well-rounded card that offers large earnings and lets you redeem those earnings for travel rewards and perks that are truly valuable.

U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Card review

U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Card

4 rating

Packed with lucrative benefits, the new U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve card offers more than enough value to make up for the card’s $400 annual fee – especially if you don’t mind using your phone to make many of your purchases. This offer is no longer available on our site.

JetBlue Plus card review

JetBlue Plus card

3.9 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.

3.9 rating

The Hilton Honors card offers a generous number of bonus points on hotel and everyday purchases; but because Hilton’s Honors aren’t worth as much as the average credit card rewards point, cardholders need a larger number of points to purchase rewards-funded travel.
