Fly Over Fees with Airline Rewards Cards?

Free baggage check, priority board, lounge access, up to 50,000 bonus miles, and no currency conversion fees on foreign purchases. All these airline perks could be yours just by opening a variety of reward credit cards.

While these perks may look attractive, do your homework first. Consider the cost of the card vs. how often you travel, and what you’ll have to spend to actually get the perks. Each card is different.

Also, pay attention to which airline you travel on the most, and make sure it will be easy to redeem your points.

You can visit the credit card table at Bankrate.com to find out exactly what you need or want in a rewards credit card.
