I have a bunch of flights I need to take for this upcoming year and this card made it perfect - I ended up getting a ton in cash back!

If you are planning a trip or just planning to save money so you can go on vacation, the use of an Airline Rewards Credit Card is the route to take. These credit cards offer a simple and effective way for you to finally get something back for the money you spend. Airline reward credit cards offer numerous rewards including discounts or even free flights, car rentals and hotel stays. Some provide flexible spending to allow you to spend your rewards on virtually any type of travel expense. Some of the best credit cards with airline rewards also offer bonus miles just for signing up. This means you are already well on your way to earning a free trip within the first few months of using a card. That's an easy way to get something for just using your card.

When selecting airline transfer credit cards, you will want to compare options to find the best offers. The number of miles per dollar spent is one of the most important factors. Many companies not offer 1 Mile per $1 spent on the card. You may get additional benefits for booking your air travel needs on your credit card, too. Also determine if the credit card places limits on how many rewards you can earn, when you can travel or which airline you can use. Some do not have blackout dates either - dates that you cannot use your benefits. Look for airline travel rewards credit cards offering cash back offers, introductory offers, low APR's and limited to no annual fees. The right card for you is out there.
