The Bottom Line

If you are able to spend $3,000 on the card in the first 90 days of opening the account, you get 40,000 bonus miles, equal to about $400 off your next travel redemption. With 2x miles per dollar on all purchases and no foreign transaction fees, this card is a great choice for frequent travelers.

The Good

Since there are no seating restrictions, this card offers much more flexibility that your average rewards credit card. The 40,000 bonus miles is a huge perk, with 2x miles on all purchases, you don't have to keep track of any bonus spending categories.

The Not so Good

This card offers great rewards, so like most cards offering great rewards, you need excellent credit to get approved and you'll have to pay an annual fee of $89 after the first year.
