If you are a frequent traveler, you know that frequent flyer points are as valuable as cash.
For example, some companies offer one frequent flyer mile or a gift choice for every dollar charged to the card.
American Express has several cards that provide opportunities to earn frequent flyer miles with every purchase.
For every dollar that you spend on gas you can earn three frequent flyer miles.
