What do you get when you combine writing about airline travel since 2008, with a few decades of being a sarcastic chap? Unsolicited Travel Advice from David (the Editor-in-Chief of this dog and pony show) -- that's what! There are way too many travel-related click-bait stories out there that give you boring and questionable information from "experts." This series will be different -- I will give you entertaining, possibly less questionable information, while not caring about any sort of clicks or bait. Let me set the mood. Imagine that you and I are hanging out (before all the COVID-19 stuff ), when we have just hit upon an interesting airline/travel topic (what is the best airline credit card) and I am fired up and ready to spew my thoughts and opinions. When I wrap up, I am hoping that you won't just awkwardly stare at me, but instead continue the conversation in the comments. Let's do this... WHAT IS THE BEST AIRLINE CREDIT CARD? Heck if I know.? Which airline do you fly the most? Pick that credit card. Done! Since all my friends and family know I write about airlines, I get asked about this a lot… too much. I say that because I am bad at the airline miles / credit card “game.” A game that can be played with-in the rules and ethically, or it can be done by trying to scam (or some might say "work") the system. In a recent AR story comment, my friend, and AR Managing Correspondent, JL Johnson stated how passengers can just, “open up a personal and business ChargeMart Plutonium Card, and max them out a time or two over a 90 day window that I might get enough points to buy a FREE one-way first class ticket from Lampasas, TX to Fargo, ND.” Sign me up... three times over again!!! (This would probably be a good time to tell you that AR gets ZERO kickbacks from any real, or fake credit cards that I talk about or make fun of in this story. Not that I am against it. If anyone from ChargeMart Plutonium Card is reading… let's make a deal!) Keep on reading to find out the 5 BEST AIRLINE CREDIT CARDS THAT WILL GET YOU FREE FLIGHTS TODAY… The post What is the Best Airline Credit Card? – Unsolicited Travel Advice appeared first on AirlineReporter.
