What is the best card to earn points or cash back that have no annual fee? I know you recommend the Chase Sapphire Preferred, but that particular card has an annual fee. Any recommendations?
Some folks, like Danny, don’t like to pay the annual fee on credit cards. Especially when they’re new to miles and points. So what are the best no annual fee cards?

I’m going to apply for my 1st travel rewards card. What is the best card to get?
Welcome to the world of Big Travel with Small Money, Ben!
With so many great deals out there, it’s tempting for folks who are new to this hobby to jump right in and start signing-up for cards. But doing this could give you points in different accounts that aren’t useful for you.

Booking a paid flight with an airline you don’t usually fly? You don’t have to let the miles you’ll earn go to waste! You can often credit your miles to a partner airline that you DO intend to fly in the future.
But the number of miles you’ll earn on that partner can depend on your fare class. Say you’ve booked a paid flight on TAP Portugal. You likely know you can credit those miles to United Airlines. But you might also like to see the earning rate on Air Canada, Singapore Airlines, etc.
The website WheretoCredit.com helps you make that decision!
You Can Fly 1 Airline and Earn Miles With Another. And WheretoCredit.com Lets You Easily Compare the Earning Rate You Get With Alliance and Partner Airlines
Let’s take a look at how it works!

If I add my wife (or anybody) as an authorized user, will it require her social security number? And will the bank do a hard pull on her credit?
