I often get asked about the best credit cards that provide benefits, specifically travel rewards.  I find the NerdWallet ranking to be helpful.  They rate the best credit cards if you are a traveler, frequent or not, based on the specific benefit category type you’re interested in.

Here are the best travel credit cards in 5 Categories:

Category: Flat-rate rewards
Credit Card: Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card

Category: Airline miles and a large bonus
Credit Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

Category: No annual fee
Credit Card: BankAmericard Travel Rewards® Credit Card

Category: Chip-and-PIN
Credit Card: Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard®

Category: Hotels
Credit Card: Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit

Read the article above to find out why these are the best cards for each situation.  Be smart – help your spending pay for your travel!  For help identifying your spending goals, schedule a meeting by clicking below, contact Joni Lindquist –, or call (913) 345-1881.
