Perks With Airline Affinity Credit Cards

Some people do not like to use the airline affinity credit cards because they have a fee of about $100 per year. But if you travel a lot, the new benefits available by using these cards may more than outweigh the fee.

If you pay for your ticket (or the taxes and fees on a frequent flyer ticket) with the matching credit card, you may now be able to enjoy perks such as priority boarding and one piece of checked luggage for no fee. We recently fly to and from Lima on frequent flyer tickets with taxes paid on an AA affinity card and had priority boarding. Very nice, getting on board early -- no fighting for overhead bin space and not worrying about holding up the line.
