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.

United Quest℠ Card review

United Quest℠ Card

4.0 rating

Boasting a solid set of cardholder perks that should more than cover its annual fee, the United Quest card will offer terrific value for semi-frequent flyers who plan on sticking with the airline long term.

Though the updates to the newly relaunched Citi Prestige card are a mixed bag, the card is still a strong choice for a luxury travel card.

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

While it can’t compete with the luxury travel perks of other American Express cards, the American Express® Green Card is a solid choice for travel-minded cardholders who want to earn points while sticking to a budget.

Best Western Rewards Premium Mastercard

3.8 rating

This premium hotel card offers a generous rewards rate on Best Western purchases and a tiered sign-up bonus that amply rewards moderate to heavy spenders; however, cardholders need to travel often to make up for the card’s $59 annual fee.
