Escape by Discover Card Review


Our favorite pure travel card is hands down the Escape card by Discover.  Why you might ask?  While its benefits for staying at a particular hotel might not be the best, or flying on a certain airline, this travel credit card gives you the most points redeemable in the highest number of ways.  This means that you get maximum points for using the card – not just for staying a hotel every once in awhile or booking through an over-priced company sourced travel website.

To start with, you get an extra $10 in travel miles per month for the first 25 months you own the card.  That means that you get a free $250 credit towards travel (hotels, flights, anything!) just for owning the card just over 2 years.  Additionally, you get 2 miles for every dollar you spend, including 2 extra miles when you spend money in Discover’s online store.  Just doing the math, this means that $5000 in spending on this card is the same as spending $10,000 on most other cards.

Finally, the card also has other impressive benefits as well, including travel insurance, rental insurance, and trip cancellation insurance.  If you're looking for a card that's going to help you get the farthest the fastest, this is the way to go.
