    With the different credit cards rewards systems out there, it's funny how sometimes a program's own co-branded card isn't the best option for earning points in that program. One extreme example is for Hyatt Stays. The Chase Hyatt Visa Card offers three Gold Passport points per dollar spent at Hyatt, while the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Card from American Express offers one Starpoint per dollar spent plus 5% cash back through the AmEx OPEN Savings program. As backwards as it seems, the best "return" I can get on paying for a US Hyatt stay is with a co-branded Starwood Card. While not specific to spend on the airline, one interesting program for maximizing points is Southwest Rapid Rewards. Southwest Rapid Rewards is a revenue based frequent flyer program, so what's the best credit card for racking up cheap travel on Southwest through everyday credit card spend?
