We’re considering charging our wedding expenses on a credit card so that we can reap the benefits of the rewards. Preferably something related to the home or honeymoon. Are there any credit cards that anyone has used that works/worked well for this purpose?
We don’t plan to carry a balance just charge and pay it off. Thanks!

I have been wondering/searching for this too. I haven’t found anything yet. I can’t wait to see if anyone else has.

AAdvantage credit cards have a deal for 75,000 frequent flier miles if you spend $4,000 in 6 months (you get the miles as soon as you spend the money, don’t have to wait the full 6 months). We did that to get free tickets to Asia for an upcoming multi-month trip! It’s our “real” honeymoon!

Southwest has a Visa that’s good at adding up free flight credits. I also like my Discover for the cash back, and they do higher percentages on certain things like restaurants in certain months.

It depends what you like. I don’t need flight points or anything, so I have an Amazon credit card and get Amazon gift cards regularly.

I LOVE my southwest credit card. I am constantly getting free flights & the best thing is that we can “gift” it to other people as well. When we lived out in CA we flew both BF’s parents out there for free..round trip.
Check out bankrate.com you can search for credit cards on what you need: rewards, low interest, cash back cards. It breaks it all down for you. Plus there are so many other wonderful tools on that site.

I love my discover card. There are so many discover rewards that you can earn from a ton of different retailers. Also, every 2 months they offer extra rewards on (these are examples) shopping, travel, gas etc…
Right now I get 5% cash back on travel and restaurants 😀

I’m a huge fan of AAdvantage cards through American Airlines. When I signed up, I got 25,000 after my first purchase & 1 point for every dollar I spent. When I renewed I receive 2500 points a year. It adds up & if you like to travel (even after the honeymoon) then it’s worth it!

I was just looking at this article today, about the best credit cards of 2010
I really like my Discover card, but I don’t get flight miles or anything. It’s a great every day card though, and they have good customer service (in my opinion) and little perks here and there.
