Free Hotel Night
  • Earn 4x Points at Hyatt Properties
  • Free Night Every Year
  • Complimentary Discoverist Status
Apply Now Securely with Chase | Terms Apply.
The World of Hyatt Credit Card is exceptional. It’s a card I have, and also a card I spend at least $15,000 on per year. The card is worth having even if you don’t plan on putting spending on it — you get an anniversary free night certificate you can use at a hotel that costs significantly more than the annual fee, you get complimentary Discoverist status, and you get five elite nights towards a higher status tier. Beyond that it can be worth putting spending on the card, thanks to the unique bonus categories (4x points on Hyatt stays and 2x points on fitness and gyms), as well as the additional elite nights and second free night certificate. The card is worth holding onto for the anniversary free night certificate and the five elite nights towards status annually, which more than justify the annual fee, not to mention the pathway to elite status based on your spending.

Apply Now Securely with Amex | Terms Apply.
The Hilton Aspire Card is one of the most rewarding hotel credit cards out there. While the card has a $450 annual fee, it offers some truly incredible perks, including top tier Hilton Honors Diamond status, a weekend night reward annually, and up to $500 in credits annually ($250 for airline fees, and $250 for Hilton resorts). To say that I’ve gotten outsized value from this card would be an understatement.

Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™ Credit Card

Earn 3 Free Nights
  • Earn 6x points at Marriott
  • Free Night Award Annually
  • 15 Elite Nights Towards Status Annually
Apply Now Securely with Chase | Terms Apply.
The way I view it, this is a card that’s worth holding onto for the anniversary free night certificate, valid at a hotel that retails for up to 35,000 Marriott points per night. That benefit alone should more than justify the annual fee. If you’re going for status, the 15 elite nights towards status annually is incredibly valuable as well, and makes it easier to earn Platinum status.
  • Earn 10X total points per $1 spent on up to $2,500 in combined purchases at gas stations, restaurants, and grocery stores within 6 months from account opening
  • Earn 6X Bonvoy points per $1 spent at over 7,000 hotels participating in Marriott Bonvoy™.

Annual Free Night

IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card

Earn 150,000 bonus points
Annual Free Night
  • Earn 10x points at IHG hotels
  • Anniversary Free Night
  • IHG Rewards Club Platinum Status
Apply Now Securely with Chase | Terms Apply.
The IHG Premier Card is a card that I highly recommend getting. Not because it makes sense to put a lot of spending on the card long term (especially with the recent devaluation of points), but because the anniversary free night certificate can be worth way more than the ongoing $89 annual fee. Add in the IHG Platinum status, fourth night free on award redemptions, Global Entry/TSA Pre-Check credit, and more, and this card is a no brainer. Add in the great bonus at the moment, and the card is even more valuable. I know some people are opposed to having a lot of credit cards, but often it can make sense to have some cards just for the perks they offer, even if they’re not worth spending much money on. This is one of those cards.
  • Earn up to 25 points total per $1 spent when you stay at an IHG hotel
  • Earn 2 points per $1 spent on purchases at gas stations, grocery stores, and restaurants.
  • Earn 1 point per $1 spent on all other purchases

Night Award
  • Earn 6x points at Marriott
  • Free Night Award Annually
  • 15 Elite Nights Towards Status Annually
Apply Now Securely with Amex | Terms Apply.
The Marriott Bonvoy Business Card is a strong contender for a business card to hold on to long term. The 15 elite nights towards status (which can be stacked with a similar offer on a personal card), as well as an annual free night award are a great value proposition. I value those perks at way more than the $125 annual fee.

The Bonvoy Brilliant Card is Marriott’s most premium credit card. The card has a $450 annual fee, but offers perks like a $300 annual Marriott credit and annual free night certificate valid at a property costing up to 50K points, which should more than justify the annual fee.

The Hilton Business Card is the only co-brand business card offered by Amex and Hilton, and it offers some fantastic perks.
