You will receive 10,000 bonus points after making $1,000 in purchases with your credit card account within 90 days of account opening. This amount of points is not so big and it doesn't guarantee that you will be able to book an award ticket, because the required amount of points depends on the destination you choose, class of the flight, and the ticket prices. You may try to find an award chart on the airline's website to see how many points you will need for a flight.
If you want to earn points or miles for your travel, you should choose from travel rewards credit cards
. Such cards are more flexible as they allow to earn rewards on all purchases. Consider the Discover it® Miles
credit card. The card does not have a traditional sign-up bonus but all miles you earn first year will be matched at the end of the year (provided you are a new cardmember). So, if you earn 35,000 miles, you get 70,000 miles. That's $700 towards travel
! This card comes with unlimited 1.5 miles on all purchases. The miles you earn with this card can be redeemed for any travel expenses including flights, cruises, car rentals and other.
