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: Discover will match ALL the Miles you've earned at the end of your first year, automatically. For example, if you earn 35,000 Miles, you get 70,000 Miles. That's $700 towards travel!
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% on Purchases for 14 months and 10.99% on Balance Transfers for 14 months, and then the ongoing APR of 14.24% - 25.24% 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.
