How to Choose an Airline Credit Card

Do you spend over $1,334 per month on your credit card? If so, check out the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. If you make $4,000 in purchases during the first three months from opening your account, you’ll earn 50,000 bonus points (worth $625 in travel rewards when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards). There is a $95 annual fee ($0 introductory annual fee for the 1st year).

Is it worth the $95 annual fee? Read our review of the Chase Sapphire Preferred here.

Chase Sapphire Preferred Highlights:

  • Double points on travel and dining at restaurants
  • 1:1 point transfer to leading frequent travel programs, including United Mileage Plus, Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards, British Airways Executive Club, Korean Air SKYPASS, and Virgin Atlantic Flying Club

    Our Recommendations: 3 Things to Consider When Comparing Airline Credit Cards


    • Promotions. We all love a good deal and travelers are among the most coveted market segment. Credit card companies frequently offer travelers introductory promotions to get them to sign up for a new credit card. For that reason, it makes sense to compare a few before applying for any one card.
  • Rewards :

    • Earning rewards. An introductory offer is nice, but after the honeymoon period, you want a credit card that you’ll still want to keep around.

    Pay attention to the credit card rewards structure to find one that’s right for you over the long haul. Do you understand it? Will you get rewards where you use the card? If earning rewards is centered around airline purchases, do you travel enough throughout the year to get a lot of rewards or should you look for a more general card?

  • Redeeming rewards. Earning a million miles is great, but if you can never use it, why bother?

    Look for a credit card that lets you redeem your miles or points toward any purchase, or at minimum toward a carrier that flies where you want to go.

  • Annual fees. Airline credit cards tend to come with a price — an annual fee. Don’t let the existence of such a fee scare you away (with the right card, you can save money in the long run) but keep it in mind when evaluating your choices. In most cases, the higher the fee, the more lucrative the promotions and benefits.
