Which Type Of Credit Card Are You Looking For?

Credit cards that earn points and miles for travel are extremely valuable. 

Different types of cards earn different types of rewards so it’s important to know which will help you reach your travel goals.

If you’re new to miles and points, I recommend starting with the Chase Sapphire Preferred. You can also look at this guide of the first 5 cards to consider as you get started with credit cards.

You can also click on the individual credit card pages from the credit card drop-down menu on the navigation bar at the top of the screen. I highlight the individual cards and why I have them and/or you’d want to consider them. 

Travel Rewards Credit Cards

Earning flexible travel rewards points are the best because they’re not connected to a specific hotel or airline. These cards give access to a variety of airline and hotel transfer partners, which means more opportunities for you to maximize your points and miles.
So, whether you’re just starting out or not, these types of credit cards have the power to unlock valuable travel rewards.

Airline Credit Cards

These credit cards are co-branded with specific airlines. When you use these cards for your everyday spending, you’ll earn valuable airline miles that can be redeemed for flights on that airline’s website whenever you’re ready to take that bucket list trip.

Hotel Credit Cards

These credit cards are co-branded with specific hotels. When you use these cards for your everyday spending, you’ll earn valuable hotel points that can be redeemed for free nights at hotels in that particular hotel loyalty program. In addition, hotel credit cards can also earn you status and perks for your loyalty.
