Hot Tip:

Does your credit card include a credit for a complimentary Global Entry, TSA PreCheck, or NEXUS registration? These credits renew every 4 to 5 years. Check your card’s guide to benefits or call the customer service number on the back of the card for specific details.

Final Thoughts

It is no secret that most, if not all, of the very best travel rewards credit cards come with an annual fee — some of which can be quite high! Aside from the points you’ll earn and the card benefits you’ll receive, annual card credits offer an excellent way to recoup some of the cash you pay to use your card each year. Plus, many of the cards listed offer some of the best credit card bonuses.

In fact, if you’re thoughtful in your use of your card’s credits, you might find that you can get more value from them than your card’s annual fee — making the rewards and other benefits you receive the cherry on top!
