Supercharge Your Frequent Flier Mileage Account by Applying for Co-Branded Credit Card

Contributed by mm | January 8, 2008 3:26 AM PST

airtravel2007.jpgI am a frequent traveler and I love to collect miles. Over the years, I have been using these miles to bring the family to many nice places with reward tickets. It is a bit addictive if you love to travel: the more you travel, the more free tickets you get, which brings to more travel.

Now you can earn miles not only from flying, but also from shopping using a co-branded more miles. Plus, many of such frequent flier program co-branded credit cards offer amazing sign-up mileage bonus miles that sometimes almost amount to a free reward ticket itself.

Some cards do come with annual fee for the extra perks like travel discount and lower redemption level, but if your family travel at least once a year, you can easily recoup the annual fee from the additional benefits tailors to travlers.

Also, some cards' generous bonus mile offer also includes first year waiver of annual fee, making it more attractive for people who want to try out the program (or the airlines). After all, with the bonus miles, cardholders usually only have to charge another $5,000 on the card to get enough miles for a free reward ticket, a much better deal than even the best cashback cards!

Here are some attractive offers by major airlines. Enjoy!
