The best travel gifts to buy for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day (May 12) is right around the corner. Make sure you’re prepared this year and pick up a great gift in advance.

You should also try your best to use a credit card to maximize your online shopping. That way, you’ll earn valuable points or miles that you can use to fund your next trip.

It’s also well worth taking advantage of online shopping portals to rack up miles with your favorite airline. The miles you earn here will be in addition to the credit card points or miles you’re earning — a little something we like to call double dipping.

Best credit cards for online shopping

The Chase Freedom Unlimited® earns 1.5% cash back on all purchases, on up to $20,000 spent in the first year, and boasts an extended warranty that extends the time period of a U.S. manufacturer’s warranty by an additional year, on eligible warranties of three years or less.

The American Express® Gold Card is perfect for any big orders or anything marked final sale, offering up to $10,000 in coverage for purchases made with your card when they’re accidentally damaged, stolen or lost for up to 90 days.*

* Eligibility and benefit level varies by card. Terms, conditions and limitations apply. Please visit americanexpress.com/benefitsguide for more details. Underwritten by AMEX Assurance Company.

Finally, the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express can earn 3% cash back at U.S. supermarkets, at U.S. gas stations and on U.S. online shopping, on up to $6,000 per calendar year. You’ll also get 1% cash back on all other purchases. The card comes with up to a $15 monthly credit for Home Chef and a $7 monthly credit for the Disney Bundle monthly subscription. Enrollment is required for select benefits.
