Credit cards which offer airline fee credit will appeal the most to people with wanderlust, or those who need to travel frequently for business. While exclusive credit cards that reward you with credit towards travel aren't a new phenomenon, offers are becoming more generous. There are some air miles credit cards that come with a pretty generous statement credit when you make qualifying air travel purchases. To qualify for these upmarket credit cards, you'll need very good to excellent credit. We at GET.com have rated the following cards as the Best Credit Cards that offer you air travel credit annually in 2017:
Citi Prestige® Card, a partner card and unique MasterCard® issued by Citibank, gives you $250 air travel credit each year. That credit can be used towards your flight-related purchases, including tickets and checked bag fees. Just using this card to pay for your travel can knock $250 off your travel budget every year!
On top of that, you earn 40,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases with your Citi Prestige® Card in the first 3 months after account opening.
The Platinum Card® from American Express, a GET.com advertiser, gives you up to $200 of airline fee credit annually. This credit can be used towards incidental fees (baggage fees, in-flight refreshments and flight-change fees) but not towards airline tickets. While the airline credit you get doesn't quite match what Citi Prestige® Card offers, The Platinum Card® from American Express comes with a long list of other benefits and plenty of polished American Express finesse.
