Barclay Choice Privileges Visa Signature card

3.2 rating

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.

You won’t have trouble earning a free flight in your first year with this premium airline card: The TD AeroPlan Visa Signature card offers a substantial sign-up bonus in the card’s first year; but you’ll have to fly to Canada often after the card’s first year to make up for its pricey annual fee.
