The easiest way to get Big Travel with Small Money – whether you’re new to miles & points or a long-time hobbyist – is to sign-up for a new credit card. And if you take a look, there are LOTS of options out there!
For the past year, I’ve been working on a way to help you find the right card for your travel goals. It will be ready for launch in a week or so. But I was so excited, I wanted to give you a special sneak peek! 🙂
We’ll call it TravelCardFinder. Here’s a look at what it can do!
I’ve heard lot of folks have trouble selecting their first (or next!) credit card. Because there are dozens of choices available!
I made it my goal to create a tool to help with this pain point. TravelCardFinder will have lots of filters to narrow down your options and find the best card for you!
You’ll be able to filter by:
- Award program (what type of points the card earns)
- Bank (which bank issues the card)
- Bonus points (if you spend a lot in certain categories)
- Card type (whether the card earns airline miles, cash back, bank points, etc.)
- Fees (no annual fee, fee waived the first year, and no foreign transaction fees)
- Minimum spending (how much you need to spend to trigger the sign-up bonus)
- Perks (travel credit, discounts, elite status, and more!)
So you could find a Chase card with the annual fee waived the first year and dining as a bonus category, for example. With those filters added, you’d see:
Both the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card and IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card fit this criteria. Plus, you’ll be able to drill-down even more to see information about the minimum spending requirements, sign-up bonuses, perks, and more!
You can easily erase the filter options by tapping the “Reset” button at any time. No more endless scrolling and clicking through multiple pages to find a card that meets your expectations!
When Will TravelCardFinder Launch?
If it were up to me, I’d share the link with you right now! But we need to give it a final polish to make sure it’s perfect before it’s publicly available. And we’re working on it right now!
We’ll share it with you within the next 1 or 2 weeks! And we’ll have another post when you can begin exploring the new tool.
In the meantime, if you need help deciding which card is best for your personal situation, feel free to leave us a comment below – we’ll do our best to guide you.
I can’t wait to unveil TravelCardFinder! And I’m trying not to let my excitement get the best of me and publish the link before making final touches.
In the next week or 2, we’ll have a new way to explore credit card perks, bonus points, sign-up bonuses – and more. Be on the lookout for the official announcement! 🙂
Until then, let us know if you need help deciding which card is best for your situation. And we’ll still be here to help if you ever get stuck!
