Marriott Bonvoy Bold Credit Card

3.1 rating

For fans of Marriott hotels, the Marriott Bonvoy Bold card is a reasonable option for earning extra Marriott points and qualifying for elite status without having to pay an annual fee, though the card’s rate for earning points is measly.

Citi / AAdvantage Executive World Elite Mastercard

3.9 rating

The Aadvantage Excecutive World Elite Mastercard offers a host of great airline benefits and a large sign-up bonus with a spending requirement that — unfortunately — puts it out of reach of most cardholders. This offer is no longer available on our site.

SunTrust Travel Rewards card review

SunTrust Travel Rewards card

2.3 rating

With a low APR and a triple point bonus on airfare, hotels and car rental purchases, this is a good card to use for travel; however, don’t count on using it for everyday purchases since you won’t get much value out of the card once you return home.

2.1 rating
