I can only imagine what kind of spam bot posts this entry will get, but I’m hoping someone can help me out. I’m looking for a decent credit card that will earn frequent flyer miles. I’m travelling more and more thanks to a lady in Vancouver, friends & family in San Francisco, web conferences all over the world, and a general desire to see as much of it as I can. With that in mind, does anyone have any recommendations for a decent credit card?
So far I’ve found two offers that look pretty decent:
- Capital One No Hassles Miles Rewards
1.25 miles earned per dollar spent
- Citi PremierPass Card
5,000 bonus points; 1 point for every 3 miles flown on any airline; 1 point for every $1 spent on purchases
The Citi card seems like a better deal, but they offer you points instead of miles on your purchases. And after looking at the website I couldn’t figure out how many points is equal to 1 mile. Is it 5 points = 1 mile? 10 points? Where-as the Captial One card specifically says “1.25 miles” in their offer.
