For a long time I was anti credit card, but in the last few years I have come around. We have actually started using reward credit cards for the travel benefits. Both the credit cards we have earn travel rewards, because as you might have noticed I like to travel a lot. In fact I just got back from Las Vegas. I took my youngest son on a Mom & Son vacation while my older two children were at camp.
I use my “earnings” for all things travel except airfare. That’s why I like this card their Discover it Miles credit card. The miles earned are for all Travel Purchases! Which includes not just airline tickets but hotel rooms, car rentals, travel agents, online travel sites and commuter transportation. I do not need airline tickets, because my husband is an airline pilot and we fly for free. (#bragging – Him becoming an airline pilot is this travel writers ultimate travel dream come to life!) I do however like earning miles to pay for the trains in Europe!
Discover it Miles® card features:
- No annual fee – I love this, because you should never have to pay a fee to have a credit card
- Fly any airline any time. Just buy a ticket and use Miles to credit your statement – This means you can literally fly anywhere in the world. Any where!
- 1.5x miles for every dollar spent on purchases – You can use these “miles” for travel related purchases. Travel Purchases include airline tickets, hotel rooms, car rentals, travel agents, online travel sites and commuter transportation. 1 Mile is the cash equivalent of 1 penny.
- An annual credit up to $30 for in-flight Wi-Fi charges
- Miles never expire
- No foreign transaction fees
- Overnight shipping of a replacement card to any U.S. street address upon request
- A $0 fraud liability guarantee where you are never responsible for unauthorized purchases on your Discover card.
