Which Credit Card gives the most Airline Miles?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I am trying to learn which credit card will provide maximum number of miles. 

 

I am currently looking at three different cards:

 

 

 

STARWOOD PREFERRED

 

 

 

 

application: http://www262.americanexpress.com/business-credit-cards/business-card-details/starwood-business-credit-card


 

Earn up to 25,000 Starpoints as a new card member. You will receive 10,000 points after your first purchase, and when you spend $5,000 in 6 months, you will receive another 15,000 points. These 25,000 points can be redeemed for 6 nights at a Category 1 or 2 hotel.


So that would be about $575 worth of free hotel rooms

how to use card to transfer to airline points

http://milecards.com/523/starwood-amex-airline-mile-transfer-how-it-works/


 


 

When I called they said:


40,000 points - $400 a year gift card

Travel - add points into frequent flyer

Pay with points - book at Amex



 

CHASE SAPPHIRE

 

"The Chase Sapphire Card is one of the most popular credit card offers for travel rewards as it appeals to those of you who fly frequently whether for business or leisure or those who simply like earning points throughout the year to later redeem for a large reward such as a free flight or free hotel stay."

CAPITAL ONE

 

 

This might be the one to get. It provides 2 points for every dollar spent.  That could possibly provide me with 2x as much travel credit each year.

An additional Idea from Jayne:

40,0000 points on Delta got her a ticket to France.  Worth about $1,100

I too am interested in getting a Miles card but have only done some cursory research, so I'll be interested in watching this thread. Some things I've read regarding Starwood is that it is better for hotel stays than for airline miles. So if you're looking for miles/flights in particular, that may not be the biggest draw.

Believe it or not, there entire sites devoted to using airline credit cards for travel. This guy's breakdown of cards seems like a good starting point: http://thepointsguy.com/credit-cards/

Yea good call on that site Jennifer.  He has a great page here:

I talked to Capital One today on the phone.  I like the fact that they offer 2x as many miles per dollar.  Their customer service department was really quite good.  (although their application department didn't know anything regarding my questions of paypal and credit cards)
