What are Honest Reviews?
Honest Reviews are my honest opinion about a card offer. Each card will get a grade from A through D – because I don’t bother with Fs – and a recommendation to Keep the card if you already have it or DTMFA.
The rating scale
- A – Are you freakin’ kidding me, why haven’t you applied already AKA Apply now!
- B – Bitchin’
- C – Cool
- D – DIAF
How to use this page
You can sort the table by:
- Name of card
- Offer (number of points or miles)
- Price of annual fee
If you’re new to points and miles, the idea is to strongly consider the ones with an “A” grade first. Then fill-in as needed from the “B” and “C” cards. Don’t bother with “D” cards.
And if you’re already in the hobby, add the “A” cards to your portfolio stat! Then fill-in as needed based on where you are within card cycles, issuer rules, etc.
