    Default Visa Signature vs. World MasterCard - which one do you recommend?

    Is there a big difference in benefits, or are they similar? Which one do you prefer?

    From what I've read more people seem to think Visa is better than MasterCard when it comes to this topic. I myself, havent looked closely enough of the two to make a side by side comparison.
    AMEX Blue Cash Preferred: $23,500
    CAPONE Cash Rewards (VISA Signature): $7,500
    CHASE Freedom (VISA Signature): $20,000
    USAA Rewards (World MC): $13,500

    They're similar, but I prefer Visa Signature.

    Both of these programs are basically clones of each other, wherein if one offers one benefit, the other will surely follow suit in order to maintain competitive. Basically go with whichever one is more accessible or convenient for you to obtain on each individual card, but if you already have one it's not worth the hassle to switch to the other imo.

    That being said, I put the World Elite MC in its own class just because it has a nice look to it with the silver logo

    Are you talking about the World Elite MC? Or the regular World MC? Two different types.

    Also, for those who preferred the VISA Sig over the regular World MC, what were the difference that made you choose? I tried googling more answers, but so far all I can find is that the World MC can provide Collision waiver damage in Israel, and that the VISA Sig has better concierge...

    Regular World: World MasterCard
    World ELITE: World Elite MasterCard
