If you’re a frequent domestic traveler, having a good credit card with a great rewards program is essential for not only saving money but also for providing preferential service.

I looove SPG! They had a no annual fee SPG card up here in Canada, but then they cancelled it. I did pop over to Amex for the SPG. It is free for the first year but after that, I plan to convert it to a regular ol’ airmiles Amex card. Dont want to be paying $45 a year for any card! =)

There are only a small subset of users for which annual fees are worthwhile. Most people are better off avoiding cards with annual fees.

We had one but finally cancelled it and cashed out for several different gift cards. It just didn’t seem worth the annual fee.
