America is a credit card loving country and you’ve probably seen all the ads for bonuses if you sign up with this or that credit card. Credit cards are omnipresent in modern day society. People use them to pay for everything from cars to groceries to sticks of gum. Travel credit cards offer a great opportunity to earn free points that can be redeemed for airfares, hotels or cold hard cash. In the race to get customers, credit card issuing companies partner with various travel brands (or just simply offer their own card) that entice consumers with sign up bonuses, loyalty points, special discounts, and more. Their desire to get you, the consumer, is really your gain. By milking the system, you can get tons of free air tickets, hotel rooms, vacations, or even cash.
Here are the top five recommended card for you travelers out there:
Starwood Card from American Express (You must spend $5,000 before you get the reward bonus)
Chase Sapphire Preferred (probably second to the Starwood)
American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card (3x points on flights = awesome)
Chase Ink Bold (Best business card)
Citi Prestige (Great perks)
