If you're looking for a new credit card or way to score travel deals, look into your favorite carrier's credit card (usually with an annual fee) or a generic travel card (with or without an annual fee).
Carrier cards generally have exclusive perks for members such as lounge access, extra points, upgrade priority, campanion certificates and travel credits for TSA PreCheck or Global Entry. Prices vary by airline. Find options on your carrier's website.
