If you aren’t sure where to start with travel credit cards- check this out first I’m not going to lie to you- a lot of travel hackers get the crazy redemptions and amass huge point stacks by what’s called, card churning. That is- getting a bonus from a card, holding it for a year, closing it and reopening it 48 months later (or however long you have to wait to get the bonus again). BUT there are ways you get many points, without churning or with churning only a card or two instead of your full wallet.

Best Travel Credit Cards: Co-Branded Cards

8/1/2023
Best Travel Credit Cards- Main Players Date: 08-1-2023 Travel More Podcast Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton, Southwest, United, Delta There’s so many different brands and so many credit cards to get- how do you choose? In this edition of our Travel Hacking series, we’re going to focus on the Supporting players of your wallet. These shouldn’t be your first choice to open or for every day spending- those were covered in our last travel hacking episode. But they’ll take your travel hacking game to the next level with top tier benefits and savings. There are a few questions you want to ask yourself before you open a co-branded credit card. The biggest one is what is the value this credit card brings- and we mean real value! Not just the “coolness” factor of lounge access and upgrades. We only consider something a value if you would have paid for it anyways. For example, Marriott gives you a free night certificate. If you know you’re going to stay in one hotel a year and pay more than $100 for that night- then the Marriott card will give you at least $5 in value (after its $95/year annual fee). We suggest you use this value strategy when choosing a card! What else we cover in today’s episode -The main hotel cards and why we’d choose each one -What are some perks to look for when choosing a co-branded credit card -Our favorite co-branded perk -How to choose and airline credit card Here is the full episode transcript with all the info we talked about!
