What other benefits can I have along with airline, hotel and retail cards rewards?

[Saturday, November 6th, 2010]

Other rewards in credit cards include two more – the gas rewards arrangement and the point system. Before we look at these two in detail, here`s a brief description of the three most common rewards arrangements.

The airline rewards, primarily a benefit for frequent travelers and businessmen on official trip, provides free airline tickets depending on the points accumulated from the number of air miles travelled.

The hotel rewards, on the other hand, deals with accommodation benefits when travelling and can be subject to more hotel freebies and offers.

The retail cards rewards, also called department store cards or just store cards, work to encourage consumers to sign up and maintain cards with applicable rewards in select stores.

Now with the gas rewards, they are known for discounts and cash backs in gasoline purchases. The gas companies accepting the application of these rewards also in agreement with the credit card companies may only be one or two. However, the gas rewards will still benefit cardholders because these companies have their gas stations almost in every accessible location. The rewards are very direct in terms of taking off prices because of discounts and entitling cardholders with cash backs for every gas purchase. What is more, the reward arrangement extends to automobile purchases in participating department stores.

Finally, the point system is also a benefit for the cardholders. This arrangement is indeed vey flexible and allows for all-out choice by the credit cardholder as to when he or she pleases to use the rewards. For any amount of purchase, there are corresponding numbers of points for the consumer.

Sometimes the equivalence is at one per dollar used. This reward arrangement is said to be flexible because the cards can be used in almost all stores which has the point system for consumers. The points earned, with fulfillment of the requirement, can then be translated into money given back to the consumers or other items allowed for purchase as rewards. Now companies and stores are also reviewing the possibility of increasing the minimum number point to honor the rewards. A prescribed period for claiming and using the rewards is also a prospect for the companies and stores.

While these will make it difficult for people using their credit cards for almost all of their purchases, for now cardholders can surely enjoy the flexibility of the applications of the point system`s rewards.
