Hello fellow milepointers! I'm new to the forum here and wanted to get some advice for a credit card that would help maximize points on an air carrier. I've done some homework and have realized that a fee-based card is probably not for me, so I'm looking for a recommendation that would take this into account unless any of you have a compelling case proving otherwise. From the looks of it I think the chase sapphire (non preferred card) would be my best bet but I'm open to any other recommendations. Here are some key facts/constraints: Looking to spend up to $1200 on the card per month Will be making domestic round trips at least once a month DO NOT want to amass miles on AA (bad experience) Most places around me do not accept AMEX so the SPG card would be out of the question. Really want a card that gives me access to international destinations even though i love Southwest Any ideas are welcome!
