You’re already flying, you’re already spending so let those dollars reward you! There are so many amazing travel credit cards on the market so you have to choose what the best card is for your particular travel style and airline. We use the Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card where we get 3x/points on all travel & dining purchases, a $300 travel credit every year, Global Entry credit, airport lounge access, and perks at certain hotels. We also use the American Express Platinum card, which includes access to Centurion lounges (our favorite lounges!), 5x points on travel purchases, and access to the Fine Hotels & Resorts collection. Additionally, we have the Chase United Visa card where we get double the points on United purchases. As United frequent flyers, these credit cards made the most sense for us.
When choosing a credit card, be sure to look at:
- The annual fee
- Sign up bonus
- Foreign transaction fees
