What reward credit card do you use?  What card is the best for the airline lifestyle?

Good question. We’ve been thinking about the Amex Platinum but still haven’t pulled the trigger on it yet.

Good thread! 

I was a on the Dave Ramsey plan for the 15 years prior to retiring and joining the airlines; I had no credit card, only one debit card. 

After hearing of several scams/skims/fraud events, while on the road, I was convinced to run everything thru a credit card. 

So...I have 3 cards and only use 2. I have the Delta Skymiles AMEX because it is free for employees and you get a free checked back when you buy a ticket. That is all I use that card for. The Costco card gives 4% back on gas, 3% on restaurants, and less for other purchases. I use it for gas and eating out. The USAA cash rewards card gives 2.5% back on everything, so I use that for EVERYTHING else to include utilities...if they’d just let me run my mortgage thru it! 

Ive had 2 instances of fraudulent use with them, but both companies fixed it with a single phone call.
