What are the common types of credit card rewards?

[Saturday, November 20th, 2010]

In order for their credit card to sell in the market, companies integrate different types of rewards across the cards they issue. The rewards were arranged to fit the needs of their cardholders.

Also, the credit card rewards are those that do not come with high annual interest rates that cancel out the benefits they provide. Here are the three most usual credit card rewards arrangements:

First is the airline rewards. This is particularly fit for those who usually go on a business trip or those who simple go different places for leisure. Using the credit card with this reward arrangement for every purchase made helps the cardholder accumulate air mile points that can be used to claim free air tickets, depending on the number of miles earned. For the benefit of the free air ticket to be maximized, you should opt for a card recognizing a good number of airlines cooperating for the rewards system. This will also allow you to travel to more places and have more choices.

After the transportation rewards is the accommodation rewards in hotels. The hotel rewards can either be used independently or in combination with the airline rewards on a trip to a particular place. A corresponding number of hotel stays entitle a cardholder, depending on the required amount of purchase o be made. Should any cardholder stay in the hotel for more than number of days or nights included in the “free stay” reward, the hotels may extend more “free stays” depending on the hotel`s arrangement.

As the hotel rewards complementing that of the airline rewards, just be in the know of hotels that do not honor the use of the rewards and the certain travel destinations too.

The third reward arrangement is the department store card reward or the retail card rewards. The reward arrangement applies to all store cardholders under the agreement between a credit card company and a department store. The card and thus, the rewards are not applicable anywhere outside of the department store which signed a contract for the reward arrangement with the credit card company. Signing up for these cards automatically entitle cardholders with instant discounts in stores, point-based rewards system, and appealing cash-backs. The cards are very easily applied for and approved. They are only to be used in stores where they are applicable.

With the three most common reward arrangements, your credit card can be a sure thing to keep!
