I had TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite card for about a year. I applied for the card because I was planning a trip to Europe and wanted to get some cheap Air Canada flights. Now I am planning a trip again but do not want to apply for an airline credit card just because of that. Are there any good offers for me to save on travel and possible get free airline tickets?

There are a lot of options for travelers who do not want to apply for an airline credit card. Today banks issue travel rewards credit cards that are not tied to airlines or frequent flyer programs. Such cards still allow you to earn miles or points and redeem them towards airfare or other travel expenses. As an example, look at the Discover it Miles credit card. The card rewards with 1.5 miles for every dollar spent on purchases – no categories, no caps or limits. All miles you’ve earned first year are matched at the end of the year, that means you will receive additional mile for every earned mile. This offer is valid for the first year and for the new cardmembers only. Earned miles can be redeemed for travel statement credits to cover your travel expenses, which include, airline tickets, hotel stays, rental cars and other expenses. If you prefer cash, you can choose to redeem your miles for cash and deposit it to your bank account. As you can see, the Discover it Miles gives you flexibility to earn and redeem miles with any airline, so you can keep the card active and earn your miles towards your future travels – miles do not expire. Also, the card has no annual fee and no foreign transaction fee.
