Credit Card and Miles 2016-01-31T19:42:05-08:00

Which credit card is the best to earn miles? We want to take our family is Israel next year. 3 adults, one 10 year old. Any advice?

The answer to your question depends on the type of spending you do and how you plan to use the points and accumulated miles or points. If you have an allegiance to one airline or have started to build points in one frequent flier flyer account then you would probably want to use that card for your continued purchases. On the other hand, if you do not have any allegiance to a particular airline or travel partner then you might consider the American Express Rewards Card, or the Diner’s Club Card, but take into consideration that both of these cards have to be paid in full each moth. The Diner’s Club Card does give you an extra billing period, about 58 days. You also can consider a bank card that offers points that can be used on any airline. There are many considerations for choosing the right card. Do you pay your balance in full each month? If so then opt for a no-annual fee card. If you carry a balance, then opt for a low apr fee card. For a good comparison of various cards take a look at this site

Good luck with your trip,
