One of the best ways to earn flyer miles and travel points is to put all your spending on one rewards card. A lot of airlines and hotels offer various cards with offers from first free bag to luxury free 3-night stay, depending on the points you have earned. May also offer partner deals with other airlines and/or hotels.
But you must know which card is right for you and will offer maximum benefits. MileCards has a calculator comparing many travel credit cards based on your spending habits and the kinds of rewards you’d like. Simply enter your typical monthly spending (for various utilities) and select your preferred method to redeem rewards for flights (domestic or international), hotel stays, or gift cards.
MileCards displays the cash value of each card based on what you input as well as intro bonus point offers. The grid is broken up by the first year and ongoing years, to account for annual fees. To further refine the calculations based on your travel habits, you can enter at the bottom of the page cash values for plane tickets and how many miles you fly every year.
