You’ll want to have the best possible credit card in your wallet if you’re planning to pack up your family for spring break. Here are three of the Nerds’ favorite credit cards for a spring break trip with the kiddos.
Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express: Best for family road trips (and day-to-day expenses)
There’s a sign-up bonus worth bragging to your extended family about: $150 statement credit after you spend $1,000 in purchases on your new Card within the first 3 months. Terms Apply.
The Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express has a Special Offer: $0 intro annual fee for the first year of Card Membership, then $95.. The annual fee will be negated by spending at least $31 in groceries per week. The ongoing APR is 13.99% - 24.99% Variable APR.
Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard®: Best for flying to your family-friendly destination
If you want to earn miles quickly, check out Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard®. It offers an awesome sign-up bonus: Offer is no longer available through our site. Earn 50,000 bonus miles after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 90 days — that's enough to redeem for a $500 travel statement credit. You’ll also earn 2 miles on every dollar spent, regardless of what you’re purchasing.
No travel card is complete without perks. Here are a few perks your family will enjoy:
- Get a 5% miles bonus when you redeem your miles
