"The Best Credit Cards in America" series gives users a peek at the most consumer friendly cards in the marketplace, examines a variety of credit card categories and designates the best cards within that group. The cards are rated and the winners are picked based on a unique formula of 41 separate metrics that compare costs and benefits. Given that the holiday season is coming up, the formula is especially helpful when it comes to looking at airline rewards cards.
The winner of the Best Airline Rewards Card in America is the Chase Sapphire Preferred card.
Among the reasons the Chase Sapphire Preferred card won, is the fact that new applicants can earn 40,000 Ultimate Rewards points after spending $3,000 within three months of opening an account. Cardholders then earn one point per dollar spent on most purchases, double points on travel and dining expenses, and triple points when they book their travel through Chase's web site. Finally, cardholders have access to award seats on all major carriers in the United States.
