The United TravelBank credit card (issued by Chase) is unique in the industry, combining aspects of frequent-flier cards with aspects of cash-back cards. It also is part of the emerging trend of airlines launching no-annual-fee cards (Delta just did the same).

But is it a good fit for travelers or, more specifically, your travel style? Our review will help you decide.

The Blue Delta SkyMiles card from American Express (a CreditCardForum advertising partner) is an interesting addition to the Delta SkyMiles portfolio. Before its launch, there was no way to have a Delta SkyMiles-earning card without paying an annual fee (Delta previously offered a no-annual-fee card called the Delta SkyMiles Options card, but that was discontinued years ago).

So is the Blue Delta SkyMiles card (out Sept. 7, 2017) a great way to earn miles without an annual fee? Read our review to find out.

Should you get the United Airlines rewards prepaid card?

If you want to earn United miles on purchases but don’t want to open another credit card, the airline is giving you another option — a prepaid card. It’s called the MileagePlus GO Prepaid card and is issued by Republic Bank & Trust Company. It’s an interesting option because it’s extremely rare that prepaid cards earn rewards at all — and rarer for an airline to offer such a product.

But a rare opportunity is not always a good opportunity, and there are a few things to be aware of before you sign up for this card. We’ll even go as far to say that it’s a good option only for a few specific types of consumers.
