Our ToP Credit Card Recommendations


May 2020 ToP Credit Cards

The right credit cards can be a valuable tool as you Travel on Point(s). Before you get started, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, under no circumstances should you apply for a new credit card or make charges on a credit card if you do not have a plan to pay the balance in full every month. Any rewards you earn will quickly be outweighed by the interest you pay. Second, remember that each card issuer has its own rules about applications, the most famous of which is the 5/24 rule. Double-check the rules before you apply for a new card to make sure you are eligible.
