I have never had any airline rewards card and am very unaware how it works.
All I know is that the Starwood Preferred Guest card considered to be the best. It's a newbie question as next few years I will be travelling a lot and want to apply for and use a credit card where I can use points towards airfare (I don't care about the hotel).
I am looking a for a new card to apply for airline benefits. Amex MRP program will give me points which are standard. Let's say I apply for Premier Gold Card won't the points which I will get from that card be good for airlines?
Do I need a specific Airline card to enjoy the benefits of accumulating points to get a free ticket in future?
If points are points then how does it matter if I get PG or Amex Platinum or Delta skymiles from Amex.
I don't really understand how the airline miles system works. I googling while im writing this
