Everyone loves traveling rewards from travel credit cards, but how much do people actually know about the details of the rewards? LearnVest advises us to be more aware.
Travel rewards credit cards combine two of everyone's favorite things: travel and rewards.
And they're everywhere. You can't turn on the TV, walk through an airport, or flip open a magazine without seeing ads for the next great travel card. But to understand how these programs really work, you need to know more than a 30-second commercial can tell you.
For instance, what do you know about redemption fees? And how much money are your "points" actually worth?
It depends on your card, but travel rewards cards can be inconvenient, expensive, or downright deceptive. So before you apply, you need to read the fine print and do your research. We can't help you with the fine print, but you can start your research here.
