The Best Current Credit Card Bonus Offers [April 2024]

I receive compensation for content and many links on this blog. Citibank is an advertising partner of this site, as is American Express, Chase, Barclays and Capital One. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by my advertising partners. I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same). Terms apply to the offers and benefits listed on this page.


The biggest credit card offers are the quickest, easiest way to earn a large amount of miles and jump start your travel. These are the most lucrative. There are several new best-ever and limited-time offers that have come out over the last several weeks. Many of the offers on this list are new.

Every month I post what I find are the biggest credit card offers out there. Some of last month’s biggest credit card offers are gone or changed. What excites me is that card rewards really seem to be on the upswing in a big way. Now is the time to apply.

Here’s the current up to date list of biggest credit card offers right now – the most lucrative bonuses available. And here are easy ways to meet the minimum spend required by some of the offers.

Here are the cards I consider to be the biggest credit card offers with rich bonuses right now:

  1. Ink Business Preferred® Credit Card has a 100,000 point initial bonus after $8,000 spend within 3 months. That can even be enough for a roundtrip business class award ticket between the US and Europe.

    It earns 3 points per dollar on the first $150,000 spent each year on travel — that’s airlines, hotels, rental cars, tolls, even Uber — and shipping and advertising on social media and search engines, so great for anyone who advertises on Facebook or Twitter, or who spends money advertising with Google. It also comes with $600 protection against theft or damage when you use it to pay your cell phone.

  2. Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card has an offer to earn 75,000 bonus miles when you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening, equal to $750 in travel (See rates and fees)

This $95 annual fee card also comes with up to a $100 application fee credit for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck®. (See rates and fees.)

  4. CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® Mastercard® is offering 65,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® miles after spending $4,000 in purchases within the first 4 months of account opening. This card has a $0 annual fee the first year (then $99). [Offer expired]

    The card offers first checked bag on domestic American Airlines itineraries. There’s preferred boarding on American Airlines flights as well. And each eligible mile earned from purchases also earns a Loyalty Point towards elite status.

  5. Citi Premier® Card On top of earning 60,000 bonus ThankYou® Points after you spend $4,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening, there’s a limited-time addition: earn a total of 10 ThankYou® Points per $1 spent on hotel, car rentals, and attractions (excluding air travel) booked on the Citi Travel portal through June 30, 2024. (See rates and fees.)

    That’s more than a year of substantially elevated earning through their travel portal as of this writing, and there’s no cap.

    It’s a good card for ongoing spend, too:

    • 3 Points per $1 spent at Gas Stations, Air Travel and Other Hotels
    • 3 Points per $1 spent at Restaurants and Supermarkets
    • 1 Point per $1 spent on all other purchases.

    Points can be transferred to a variety of frequent flyer programs, including:

    • oneworld: Cathay Pacific Asia Miles, Malaysia Airlines Enrich, Qantas Frequent Flyer, Qatar Airways Privilege Club

    • Non-alliance: Emirates Skywards, Etihad Guest, JetBlue TrueBlue
    • Hotels: Wyndham Rewards, Choice Privileges (1000 -> 2000!)

  6. American Express® Business Gold Card has an offer to earn 70,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $10,000 on eligible purchases with the Business Gold Card within the first 3 months of Card Membership.

    The card will earn 4X Membership Rewards® points on the 2 categories where your business spends the most each billing cycle from 6 eligible categories. While your top 2 categories may change, you will earn 4X points on the first $150,000 in combined purchases from these categories each calendar year (then 1X thereafter). Only the top 2 categories each billing cycle will count towards the $150,000 cap. In addition, earn 3X Membership Rewards® points on flights and prepaid hotels booked on amextravel.com using your Business Gold Card.

    You earn up to $20 in statement credits monthly after you use the Business Gold Card for eligible U.S. purchases at FedEx, Grubhub, and Office Supply Stores.

  7. Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card has an offer to earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.

    Points transfer to United, Hyatt, Southwest, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Singapore Airlines, JetBlue, Air France KLM, Emirates, JetBlue, Iberia, Aer Lingus, Marriott Rewards, and IHG One Rewards. Probably the best all-around credit card, certainly for getting started in the hobby, and with a great initial bonus.

    In fact since it seems easier to get approved for than Reserve, a great strategy if you want Sapphire Reserve is to get the Sapphire Preferred card and ask Chase to product change in a year. In general Chase doesn’t approve cardmembers who have signed up for 5 or more new card accounts in the past 24 months, so this is the first card you should apply for. However there are reports of some people being approved for the cards despite being over 5/24! (No guarantees. A lot of things go into an approval decision.)
