ATLANTA-- It's a common misconception that you need to pay through your teeth to enjoy travel rewards from a credit card, and I'm hearing from many Ways 2 Save viewers who need help narrowing down the best offers.

Today, I'm going to weigh in on my top picks and also remind you that now is the ideal time to sign up for a travel rewards credit card (if you're in the market for one).

Why?

Think about how much spending you do between now and the holidays. You could be getting major rewards to enjoy free travel at a time when you really need it.

As always, I'll be sending out more daily deals via Twitter.

Happy savings and bon voyage!
