    If you want a travel credit card, but don't travel enough to justify one with an annual fee, you'll want to take a look at the Discover it® Miles. The card earns a flat 1.5 miles per $1 spent and offers a sign-up bonus you won't find anywhere else: UNLIMITED BONUS: Unlimited Mile-for-Mile match for all new cardmembers - only from Discover. Discover gives you an unlimited match of all the Miles you’ve earned at the end of your first year. For example, if you earn 35,000 Miles, you get 70,000 Miles. There’s no signing up, no minimum spending or maximum rewards. Just a Miles-for-Miles match.

    That's not all for perks. The Discover it® Miles charges no foreign transaction fees and gives you free access to your FICO® credit score. It's also a great choice for a large purchase with its introductory offer of 0% intro APR for 15 months on purchases and balance transfers, and then the ongoing APR of 17.24%-28.24% Variable APR.

    While most top-tier travel credit cards charge an annual fee, this one has a fee of $0. Not bad, considering what you get. For more details about the card, check out our full review.
