FAQs

What are the benefits of an airline credit card?

An airline credit card allows you to earn miles on everyday purchases. They also typically grant benefits that can save you lots of money such as free checked bags or make travel more enjoyable such as airport lounge access.

Are airline miles or hotel rewards points better?

Both are great options. Which one is best depends on whether you're looking for free flights or free nights. You can get the best of both worlds using flexible travel rewards programs.
