The $0-annual-fee Wells Fargo Propel American Express® Card packs an impressive combination of punches. Its wide-ranging and generous bonus categories put its earning power on par with some of the top rewards cards on the market, and its welcome offer is as valuable as you'll find on a travel card that costs you nothing to carry.
You'll earn 3 Go Far Rewards points per $1 spent on:
-Eat & Drink: Includes restaurant dining, takeout and bars.
-Ride & Drive: Includes gas stations, rideshares and transit.
-Fly & Stay: Includes flights, hotels, homestays and more.
-Watch & Listen: Includes eligible streaming services such as Apple Music, Hulu, Netflix, Pandora and Spotify Premium.
All other eligible spending earns 1 point per $1 spent.
While you'll avoid an annual fee, you'll also miss out on some of the flexibility and key travel perks offered by cards that do charge annual fees. But if you're seeking pure points-earning power, the Wells Fargo Propel American Express® Card could be right for you. For more information, see NerdWallet's full review of this card.
