Have you ever thought about getting the reserve card? I think your spending and use of the benefits might warrant the annual fee.

I considered it, but I don't stay in Hiltons often enough for the slight increase in rewards to justify the fee. It's really not much of a bump up IMO. to really get any value out of the Reserve card, you need to basically live in Hilton hotels.

 


I think if you put over $2k per month on the card in general purchases, it would justify the cost difference.

 

Not to mention....the card looks better Smiley Tongue

Chase Freedom is definitely a strong contender in terms of all around use, especially with a Chase banking account.

Chase Freedom, Fidelity Amex (2% cash back on everything) and both of the no AF Hilton HHonors cards would be my recommendations.

Re: What is the best No Annual Fee card?

The Freedom is definitely a great card. Although, the rotating categories (like the current one) can be useless.

The BCE is a good no AF card, the 3% CB on groceries year round is good for when you cannot get 5% from other cards.

In my wallet: Amex PRG & Zync, Amex BCE (19.2k), Chase Freedom (5k), PSECU Visa/PSL (20k)

Re: What is the best No Annual Fee card?

Definetly chase freedom or discover more.

Leaning towards discover though, with no foreign fees and bonus days (like today!)
