I recently wrote an article about how I cut the cost of my up coming honeymoon in half with the help of credit card rewards. While the cards featured in that post are still my favorite, I recently found two more that offer some great rewards.
- The Starwood Preffered Guest American Express Card – This card gives you 10,000 bonus points after your first purchase and 15,000 more if you spend $5000 dollars in your first 6 months of membership. Your 25,000 points can be used for free hotel rooms and other travel categories. The annual fee is waived for the first year.
- The Gold Delta Skymiles American Express Card – I really like this card. It awards you 30,000 skymiles after you spend $500 in the first three months. You also get your first checked bag for free when you fly Delta airlines and the annual fee is waived for your first year. If you combine this card with Delta’s Skymile dining program you have the potential to really rack up a lot of Skymiles very quickly and shrink the cost of your air travel. If you dine out a lot for business these two memberships would really add up for you.
Of course I would never encourage anyone to carry a balance as interest rates will quickly erase any rewards, but If you are considering a rewards card these might be what you are looking for.
