Editors Review

Pros

  • sign up bonus cover a round trip Europe to North America ticket in economy
  • and you can get another free ticket for your companion if you spend $30,000 in the card annually (you need to pay for your ticket by collected BA miles and the companion ticket will match yours)
  • you can also transfer the miles to members of One World Alliance - American Airlines for instance
  • no international transaction fee
  • EMV chip - convenience to use in Europe

Cons

  • average interest rate

Verdict

A great card, assuming you spend at least $2,000 on the card per month. If you do, the card will benefit you a lot. Combining all spending bonuses, you will be able to get a couple round trips to Europe with ease.

No foreign transaction fee and chip on the card will help you when travelling abroad.
