Discover Escape OR American Express Starwood?

Postby LaKoi » Sat Jul 04, 2009 6:30 pm

Hi guys! So I am hoping for some feedback. I travel about 4-6 times a year which is frequent but not SUPER frequent. I, however, will be traveling more during the upcoming year and wanted to get a travel rewards card to help defray the cost of some of the airfares. I currently have quite a bit of miles w. AA and was thinking of getting the Starwood to continue transferring to aa. Yet, the Discover crept as another option and the sign up bonus is good enough to get a flight in the near future as I want to do with AA. Then again...there's that issue of the 60 vs. 45 a year fee. I guess I need some help and perspective choosing a card.

Regards!

Sue

I haven't heard much about the Escape card. Funny because I know it's been out a while and I haven't heard of anyone that has it. Discover should ramp up the marketing on it. I know the Discover Miles card has a signup bonus too and no annual fee. That may be worth checking out. But yeah probably all the regular airline credit cards like the Delta Skymiles, Southwest Card, Delta, etc won't be worth it for you with the annual fee. That's why the Discover ones I think make sense for people like you and me that don't travel all that much.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred
