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.

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.

United℠ Explorer Card

3.9 rating

With a relatively generous sign-up bonus, the United Explorer Card makes it easy to earn a free flight quickly; but you’ll have to fly United often to make up for the card’s $95 annual fee (waived for the first year).

Frontier Airlines World Mastercard review

Frontier Airlines World Mastercard

3.8 rating

Despite its high APR and moderately priced annual fee, this budget airline card offers a tremendous amount of value for domestic travelers – especially if cardholders spend enough each year to qualify for the card’s $100 airline voucher.

Southwest Rapid Rewards® Priority Credit Card

3.8 rating

The Southwest Rapid Rewards Priority Credit Card doesn’t have as much heft as most elite airline cards, but it does offer enough value to justify paying the higher fee.

Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card review

Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card

3.7 rating

If you frequently fly Southwest, it’s worth upgrading to this high-value airline card, despite its $99 annual fee. It offers one of the best sign-up bonuses on the market and its rewards points are worth substantially more than the average credit card rewards point.
