Aussies should compare credit cards to get the most out of frequent flyer points deals and other rewards schemes, it has been claimed.

Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald, frequent flyer points collector Alana Wright revealed that she likes to compare credit cards roughly every three years.

"My husband gets heaps more points than me – but I want to keep [mine] for a year because you pay your annual fee," she commented.

She advised those who have reward cards to ensure they pay off their bill every month, because often the interest rates are higher than on other credit cards.

In addition, Ms Wright said she does not change her shopping habits in an effort to collect points, asserting that "it's not worth it".

This comes after a survey conducted by Galaxy and commissioned by American Express found that 1.4 million Aussies used reward points from credit cards to pay for their summer holidays, reported National Features.
