Which credit cards do you find give you the best perks and mileage accrual for travel?
Love to hear your thoughts on how you save points and miles for future travels.
Even I would love to know more about it. Awaiting response from others
The choice of a travel credit card depends on your travel lifestyle and habits. What works for someone, might not work for you. So try choosing a card on your own, using some guides like this <snip>

I have credit cards affiliated with United and American. I've considered getting a credit card that gives cash, but at this time have decided that if I got cash I would spend it one something other than air fare.
I've always expected my miles to be valued at $.02/mile (25,000 miles for an airfare more than $500). I could usually depend on this exchange for overseas flights. However, I'm finding that with the current low fares (e.g., I just spent $368 for DEN-LHR-JFK which would have cost me at least 60,000 miles or an airfare costing $1200 at $.02/mile), I just pay for the airfare and accrued more miles.
I thought I might use the miles for domestic flights, but I'm finding it difficult to use my miles at the 25,000 for a domestic round trip. It seems with the introduction of Basic Economy fares, the seats that might have gone to frequent flyers are much reduced. The flights where I can use 25,000 miles are for flights that depart at 6 AM or some other inconvenient time. Again, I used cash for Basic Economy.
I'm almost at the point where I will cancel my airline credit cards in favor of a credit card that provides at least $.02 per dollar spent. I really don't want to play the game of cancelling a card, waiting for two years, and reapplying for a new card where I receive 50,000 miles for doing so.
This is great information. I have a capital one card that gives 2 miles for each dollar spent and the Delta card.
I agree that the Basic Economy fares are beginning to change things.
We don't like to get the card and then cancel the card. We don't play those games. I know many people card hop but that is not for me.
Thanks for the great response.
