Traveling Well For Less has partnered with CardRatings for our coverage of credit card products. Traveling Well For Less and CardRatings may receive a commission from card issuers.
The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for beginning travel hackers. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first three months.
My favorite perks about this card are earning 5X points on travel when booked through the Chase portal (2X if direct purchase), 3X points on dining , $50 yearly credit on hotels booked through the Chase portal, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.
The Chase Freedom Unlimited is one of my favorite cards for earning cash back card and travel rewards.
It offers a welcome offer of $200
after spending $500 in the first three months.
My favorite perks about this card are earning 5% cash back at grocery stores the first 12 months (up to $12k)
, unlimited 1.5% cash back on all purchases
and no annual fee
. When paired with cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve
, you can use your points to travel for free.
