Help picking an airline card

I was debating between Alaska airline card vs Jetblue card. The Alaska card comes with a companion discount ticket but is not good for daily spending while the Jetblue card gets 2x on dining and groceries. I would like to plan on traveling 1 - 2 times a year and want to get a card for domestic flights including Hawaii and later on go for a csp when my credit improves.

Re: Help picking an airline card

I have been doing some research as well, and settled on the Chase United MileagePlus card. 


I'm in a similar situation in that I travel less than 5 times/year. Here is what enticed me:

  • Availability of United flights from local airport
  • Free access to airport lounge (2 passes/year)
  • VIP lounges that pop up at malls at year-end
  • 50,000 point sign-up bonus

Hope this helps.
