Capital One VentureOne Rewards Credit CardUnlimited 1.25x miles on all purchases and no annual fee make this an easy travel card to keep in my wallet. I also never have to worry about foreign transaction fees when I use it while traveling abroad.2016

Chase Freedom Unlimited®I got this card because I was a longtime Chase customer, and it’s my favorite precisely because it’s so simple. The 1.5% flat-rate cash back gives me solid rewards on all purchases. And because I have the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card as well, I can get a higher value from my rewards by transferring them to airlines.2017

Chase Sapphire Reserve®This card is incredibly feature rich and the annual fee paid for itself through travel credits within just a few months. Love the 5x points earning rate on travel and dining – not to mention Priority Pass discounts on airport meals.2019
