Editors Review

Pros

  • great 50,000 starting bonus - higher than the industry average
  • 5x rewards on Marriott or Ritz-Carlton purchases, 2x on air tickets, car rental, dining out
  • additional perks: anniversary free night at 1-5 star hotel
  • 15 Credits towards Elite status after account opening and for every account anniversary
  • 1 Credit for Elite Status for every $3,000 in purchases
  • no international transaction fee

Cons

  • $85 annual fee

Verdict

A good card considering you travel at least once a year. Even the free night bonus is already offset with an annual fee, and a great 5x rate with 50,000 welcome bonus makes the card a good choice for a travel card.
