I fly Korean Air frequently and I’m a member of SKYPASS. In your opinion, should I get their credit card to earn more miles?

Frankly, in our opinion – no. Korean Air is a good airline, but it isn’t good for its credit cards. There are several of them and none of them really shine. If we take the basic one, SKYPASS Visa Classic, it’s inferior to almost all credit cards you can ever encounter. It gives you only 1 mile for all purchases, which is less than even what airlines usually give you. The sign-up bonus of 5,000 miles is almost non-existent and it’s not worth mentioning. In other words, the card isn’t worth your time other cards, that cast themselves as premium, still have insignificant rewards.
If you want to earn miles for Korean Air, better take just a travel credit card. However many miles it offers for travel purchases, it will still be more than what SKYPASS Visa offers. If you want a more universal variant, take a look at the Discover It Miles. It offers 1.5 miles per dollar and matches your miles at the end of the first year. All in all, that gives you 3 miles per dollar! And the card is extremely cheap in maintenance – there is no annual fee and no transactions fee.
