The real answer is, it all depends on your travel habits and where you spend your money. There are some sites out there that analyze exactly this kind of information for you.
One of the best resources is NerdWallet.com. It breaks down travel-related credit cards by interest rates, annual fees, sign-up points, and it estimates how much you’ll save per year based on the rewards.
ThePointsGuy.com is all about beating the system to maximize your loyalty program. There’s no simple chart, but there’s a tool that will make credit card recommendations based on your spending habits.
What’s cool about a site called CardHub.com is that they have real-person reviews. So, you can learn directly from the people who use those rewards cards.
Plus, keep your eyes on a new consumer site, Valuepenguin.com. Yes, it’s got a funny name. But they’ve got some great tips on which cards make sense, whether you’re earning airline miles, gas credits, or other financial perks.
