Everyone loves to receive a gift on their anniversary. While your significant other might offer you flowers or chocolates, your credit card issuer has other things in mind to keep you happy. The right credit card can provide bonus points, free hotel nights, or even a companion airfare certificate just for renewing your card membership each year. 

So if you are looking for a credit card that continuously rewards you for being a cardholder, consider these that offer valuable anniversary bonuses.

Cardholders of the British Airways Visa Signature® Card get a Travel Together Ticket good for two years, each year that you make $30,000 in purchases with your card. You can use this ticket as a second seat for a companion traveling with you on the same flight and in the same cabin. You get 3 Avios for each dollar spent with British Airways and 1 Avios for each dollar spent on all other purchases. New cardholders can earn a bonus of 50,000 Avios if you make at least $3,000 in purchases with your card in the first 3 months of opening the account.
