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.
Bank of America Travel Rewards credit card review
Last reviewed: June 20, 2019
You can travel anytime you want with this flexible travel card: The Bank of America Travel Rewards credit card sets itself apart from other travel cards by doing away with restrictive travel policies and letting you book your rewards-funded travel yourself.
BB&T Spectrum Cash Rewards credit card
Last reviewed: March 26, 2019
The BB&T Spectrum Cash Rewards card does not offer the highest rewards rate, but it can help cardholders looking to save on fees since it comes with no annual fee and a 12-month intro APR.
U.S. Bank FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature card
Last reviewed: April 10, 2019
The U.S. Bank FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature card is a good value for cardholders who want to redeem points for travel purchases, but its other redemption options aren’t nearly as lucrative.
Discover it Miles
Last reviewed: June 3, 2019
The Discover it Miles card offers a range of high-end travel perks and an industry-leading rewards rate for the card’s first 12 months, but the benefits drop off significantly after the first year.
Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant American Express Card
Last reviewed: June 6, 2019
Aside from its gigantic introductory bonus, the main appeal of the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant American Express Card is luxury hotel perks.
BMO Harris Bank Premium Rewards Mastercard
Last reviewed: February 13, 2019
For $79 a year, the BMO Harris Bank Premium Rewards Mastercard offers solid rewards for frequent travelers, but the card’s moderately high APR and short interest-free balance transfer period limit its appeal as a balance transfer card.
PNC Points Visa
Last reviewed: March 26, 2019
Despite its sky-high rewards rate, the PNC points Visa credit card is a run-of-the-mill rewards card dressed in a more generous card’s clothing.
Mastercard Titanium Card
Last reviewed: June 17, 2019
The most affordable option in Mastercard’s line of luxury credit cards, the Mastercard Titanium Card offers a decent rewards rate and some interesting perks; but you can get a similar amount of value from cheaper cards.
Mastercard Gold Card
Last reviewed: February 15, 2019
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.
Mastercard Black Card
Last reviewed: March 13, 2019
The Mastercard Black Card is your best bet for over-the-top luxury benefits, but its rewards program falls short.
Wyndham Rewards Visa card
Last reviewed: May 21, 2019
The Wyndham Rewards Visa card offers an above average rewards rate on hotel and general purchases; but Wyndham points aren’t worth as much as the average card rewards point, so the hotel card’s rewards program isn’t as valuable as it seems.
Barclay Choice Privileges Visa Signature card
Last reviewed: February 12, 2019
A good choice for cardholders who want an easy way to earn free travel, but don’t want to pay an annual fee, the Choice Privileges Visa Signature card offers a large enough sign-up bonus to fund several nights at a budget-friendly Choice hotel, such as Comfort Inn, and an above average rewards rate on regular purchases.
