    Help Best credit card for travel

    Advertisements
    I currently have a Citi Card and i HATE them. They hiked up my interest rate to over 25% without warning cus I went over my limit. I paid off $500 to the account so my revolving balance would be waaay less than my limit, and then (without warning) they dropped my credit limit $400 so I was right back within $50 of my limit. THEN they charged me my interest fees which put me back over my limit and I started getting angry automated calls ALL day.

    So I want to transfer my balance to a new card. Preferably one with mile rewards so I can earn them for seeing DB. Any companies/cards suggested? I have good credit. In the 700's just because its limited because of my age.

    Thanks!

    I got a Capital One card b/c I was frustrated with AMEX's points program. C.O.'s points are flexible from what I can tell and I got a pretty good interest rate. They also don't charge you a % on foreign transactions like other cards. They have lots of different card types

    USAA is fantastic.
    I also like Chase (southwest version for points).

    So its a southwest card provided BY chase? I didn't see that one. I saw the Spirit Onyx card thing which looked amazing... almost too good to be true.
