What is the credit card with the best flight rewards?

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Feb 14, 2017

Finding the "best" credit card will depend a lot on your specific situation and vary from person to person. That said, a few of the most popular travel rewards credit cards are the Capital One Venture, Chase Sapphire Preferred, and the BankAmericard Travel Rewards. All of these cards offer flexible travel redemptions so you're not tied down to one airline or hotel!

I have excellent credit. I also have been carrying high debt which I would like to pay off on a low rate card than all at once. Optimally I'd like a card with a long 0% balance transfer that also has some type of rewards for purchases...thanks!

If you have excellent credit, there are a number of credit cards that can offer you a great intro APR on balance transfers and generous rewards on future purchases. The Citi Double Cash is an excellent option as it comes with 0% intro APR on balance transfers for 18 months and also earns 1% cash back on purchases and another 1% on payments. Another great choice is the Discover it® Balance Transfer, which also comes with 0% intro APR on balance transfers for 18 months. This card earns 1% cash back on all purchases and 5% cash back in special rotating categories.

Check out Chase Slate VIsa, which offers 15 months 0% interest on purchase and balance transfer. It also waive balance transfer fee if the transfer occurs within the first 60 days. However, you cannot transfer balance from one Chase account to another Chase account.

My credit is very bad. I need a credit card to consolidate all of my bills so I have only one payment per month.. I have had no luck in finding a card that would help me.

Hi Louanna,

If your credit is very bad, you probably won't be able to find a credit card that will allow you to transfer your balances to a lower interest rate. You could try calling your credit card issuer and attempting to negotiate a lower interest rate, but I would mainly focus on paying your your debt as quickly as possible. This will help your credit score go up, and once you're score is in the mid 600s, you can try applying for the Capital One QuicksilverOne.

Your best bet is to call the issuer that denied, via there customer solutions department and inquire. That would be my suggestion.Best of luck.

Never had a credit card that earned points. Need some help deciding which one to apply for.

Hi Pam,

There are a number of credit cards that earn rewards, so if you have good credit, it really comes down to your preference. Cash back credit cards like the Capital One Quicksilver offer simple rewards programs that allow you to earn a flat cash back rate on all purchases. Some cards, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Citi ThankYou Premier, earn points that can be redeemed in a number of ways including travel, cash, gift cards, and more.

Make sure you have an up to date copy of your credit score and that you monitor it frequently. Those are the best things you can do to help with your credit aside from spending wisely.

hello, please is there any credit card that I can redeem my reward point as cash back or direct deposit into a different bank. I want to use the reward point as a gift or donation. I know about chase, which one allow this.

By: CompareCards | Nov 29, 2015

Hi Larry,

You are correct that the Chase allows you to redeem your points or cash back as a direct deposit into your bank account. The person credit cards that allow this would include the Chase Freedom and the Chase Sapphire Preferred. Most other cash back credit cards only allow you to redeem your rewards as statement credits towards your account, or to wipe away purchases made with your card.

Larry, wells fargo has a card, if you spend $500 in 90 days they will deposit $200 in your bank account. They just put $200 in my account last month.

I applied but when it came to put in your information it asked for your social security card number and didn,t dot it out like some so i didn,t do it. my identity was stolen once,and don,t care how secure the site says it is. hackers can still go in there and get your social security number and wipe you out!

Hi Brenda,

When you apply for a credit card through CompareCards.com, you are actually direct to the website of the bank that issues that specific card for the online application. That means that CompareCards.com never has access to your Social Security Number or any of your other personal information. You can rest assured that the online applications at all of our banking partners are 100% secure and your personal information is completely safe.

Hi Deborah,

Check out this article about best credit cards for emergencies. Overall, the main things you'll want to look for are low interest rates and few fee. However, if you're trying to rebuild your credit, you might not be able to get approved for the best offers. We have pages dedicated to credit cards for consumers with fair credit and poor credit, so be sure to check those out as well!

Best Credit Card Rewards

Rewards credit cards offer the cardholder the chance to earn special incentives or to accumulate points that can later be redeemed for rewards, perks, products, or services. You can find the best reward credit card programs for virtually any category that you can think of these days, including travel rewards, airline frequent flier or mileage awards, hotel rewards, rental car rewards, rewards for buying gas or groceries, and cash back rewards.

Credit card rewards and rebates typically range from 1% to 5%, and many credit cards with rewards give you bigger or higher rewards for shopping or making purchases in specific categories like travel, dining, or gasoline. Or you get more points – including double or bonus points – in those kinds of categories. As with most rewards credit card programs, those connected to your credit card may have terms and conditions that you need to be aware of before picking the best rewards credit card for you.

Some credit card companies can place caps on how many points you can earn within a particular timeframe. Others limit how long you can accumulate points before you cash them in for rewards – or they might nullify points if your card remains inactive for a long time. So check the expiration dates and any limits like blackout dates for redeeming travel awards. If you get a great promotional reward bonus that too will likely expire within a set period of time – so be sure you take advantage of it while it lasts and are prepared in the event that something like your reward percentage or credit card interest rate changes with little notice.

To help you find the rewards credit card that’s best for you and your particular spending habits and lifestyle, Compare Cards has cataloged by reward redemption type. You’ll also find expert current reviews of the best – and worst – rewards credit cards, plus helpful side-by-side comparison tools that identify exactly what the pros and cons of each specific card are.
