We know, given the pandemic, that your travel plans are probably on hold. But that doesn’t mean your planning and dreaming should stop. And there are cards out there that can help you save for the day (hey, it’s not that far off!) that you can set out on adventures again. When the all-clear finally comes, you’ll be richly rewarded with free flights, upgrades and more. Here’s our favorite, which now includes a special offer for food deliveries while you stay at home.

Chase Sapphire Preferred

Why we like it: This card rakes in a whopping 60,000 points as a welcome bonus after spending $4,000 within the first three months of opening the account. This is really a great deal, especially if you spend this amount on regular expenses like groceries, home and garden supplies, gas and clothes — and, importantly, pay off the balance each month.

More highlights:

  • Earn 2 points for each dollar spent on travel and restaurants, and 1 point per dollar on all other purchases with this card.
  • With a subscription to DoorDash — super handy while staying inside — pay no delivery fee for unlimited deliveries, and reduced service fees on orders over $12.
  • Points transfer 1-to-1 to leading hotel and airline loyalty programs.
  • No foreign transaction fees.

Note: Annual fee of $95
