Top 10+ Airline Credit Card Offers

This page contains the best publicly available credit card offers. With some of the offers shown below (the one’s with a credit card image), I’ll earn a commission if you click through and are approved for the card. That said, if a better public offer is available, I always show the better offer even if it means no commissions for me. For additional details, see our Advertiser Disclosure. Advertiser partners include American Express, Barclaycard, Capital One, and CreditCards.com

Below you will find airline credit card offers sorted from best to worst based on an estimate of first year value.

Calculations

First year values are calculated as: estimated first year value minus estimated first year costs. First year value includes signup bonus points and statement credits. First year costs include the first year annual fee and the opportunity cost of meeting minimum spend requirements.

Please note that valuable perks such as free checked bags, companion passes, airport lounge access, etc. are not included in these calculations.

Full details of how first year value is calculated can be found here: Credit card signup bonus estimation details.

Please update the calculation for the Barclay Lufthansa Miles & More card. The current offer only provides a 20,000 mile bonus after first purchase. It no longer has an additional 30,000 miles for any amount of spend. If there still is a 50k miles offer, please tell me how to apply for it, as the link on this page does not have it. Thanks!

Thanks for letting us know. Unfortunately I cannot find another 50K version of the offer. It does surface every so often, but for now 20K seems to be the best. I have updated everything to reflect the lower bonus.

Some of these seem like they would change a lot in their order if you were able to meet the ‘big spend’ bonuses for them. Maybe add a way to sort by value if you meet that? Then again some are hard to quantify but can be extremely valuable to some (like those Delta MQMs which are enough for an entire FF reward tier).

I have the AA Platinum Select but it is a ‘World Elite’ Mastercard.

Not major difference but I have used the Elite benefit to upgrade Rental Car status.

I have a BA Executive Club “Household Account” with my spouse. If she gets the Chase BA card,
will her bonus miles go into the Household account? I don’t see what else they could do.
