Inactive Link

I receive compensation for many links on this blog. You don’t have to use these links, but I am grateful to you if you do. American Express, Citibank, Chase, and other banks are advertising partners of this site. 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).

Apologies. The link you followed is not currently available. It is possible that the offer has expired, or my link to it is broken.

Let me make some suggestions.

Here are some of the best credit card offers for you to consider:

  • Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card has an offer to earn 100,000 bonus miles when you spend $10,000 on purchases in the first 6 months from account opening, equal to $1,000 in travel. And for a limited time: Receive up to $200 back in statement credits for vacation rentals charged to your account within your first year.

    The card earns unlimited 2X miles on purchases – and 10X miles on hotels and rental cars booked through Capital One Travel and 5X miles on flights booked through Capital One Travel.

    You’ll receive up to $300 back annually as statement credits for bookings through Capital One Travel, where you’ll get our best prices on thousands of options. And you’ll get 10,000 bonus miles (equal to $100 towards travel) every year, starting on your first anniversary. With this card you can access the Capital One Lounge as well as Priority Pass lounges.

  • Citi Premier® Card is offering 80,000 ThankYou® points after you spend $4,000 in purchases within the first 3 months of account opening on this $95 annual fee card.

    Earning is 3 Points per $1 spent at Restaurants and Supermarkets, 3 Points per $1 spent at Gas Stations, Air Travel and Hotels; 1 Point per $1 spent on all other purchases. Points can be transferred to a variety of airline frequent flyer programs. And once per calendar year you can receive $100 off a single hotel stay of $500 or more (excluding taxes and fees) booked through thankyou.com (also new).

    This card’s Citibank ThankYou points transfer to:

    • Star Alliance: Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, EVA Air Infinity MileageLands, Thai Airways Royal Orchid Plus, Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles, Avianca LifeMiles
    • SkyTeam: Air France-KLM
    • oneworld: Cathay Pacific Asia Miles, Malaysia Airlines Enrich, Qatar Airways Privilege Club, Qantas Frequent Flyer
    • Non-alliance: Etihad Airways Guest, Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, jetBlue, InterMiles (formerly JetPrivilege)

  • United ClubSM Infinite Card which gets you access to United Clubs has an offer to earn 100,000 bonus miles after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.

    They’ve added some cool new features to the card including IHG Rewards Platinum status (starting in 2022), a 10% discount on coach saver awards, and 10,000 bonus miles for signing up for CLEAR by June 30, 2022.

  • Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card has a 100,000 point signup bonus after $15,000 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.

  • Southwest Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card lets you rarn up to 100,000 bonus points: 50,000 bonus points after spending $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months your account is open, plus 50,000 more bonus points after spending $12,000 total on purchases in the first 12 months. ($69 annual fee) [Offer expired]

    This is the perfect time to apply for the biggest-ever Southwest Rapid Rewards bonus, because 125,000 points from qualifying sources (including credit card) in a year earns a Companion Pass and this bonus is well-timed to let you earn points early in the year – so your Companion Pass is valid for the full rest of the year in which it is earned plus the entire next year. That lets you bring someone with you on your travels whether your ticket is paid for in cash or points paying only taxes (effectively doubling the value of your points).

    The Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card and Southwest Rapid Rewards® Priority Credit Card have this same best-ever bonus as well. I’ve applied for a card, looking to earn a Companion Pass at the start of 2022 so that it lasts nearly two full years. [Offer expired]

  • Aeroplan® Credit Card has an initial bonus: earn 2 Welcome Flight Rewards (worth up to 100,000 total points) after you spend $4,000 in the first 3 months from account opening.

    The card comes with elite status through December 2023 ($15k annual spend keeps it) and $50,000 spend in a year bumps you up a level from whatever you earn for the next calendar year.

    They’re introducing Pay Yourself Back with the card starting in 2022, allowing members to apply points towards travel expenses charged to the card at 1.25 cents apiece in value up to 50,000 points per calendar year.

  • Ink Business Unlimited® Credit Card and Ink Business Cash® Credit Card have increased their initial bonus offers by 50% and are now offering biggest-ever bonuses.

    • The Ink Business Unlimited® Credit Card has an initial bonus offer to earn $750 bonus cash back after you spend $7,500 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.

      Your ongoing spend will earn unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase made for your business.

    • The Ink Business Cash® Credit Card has an offer to earn $750 bonus cash back after you spend $7,500 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.

      Ongoing earn is rich especially 5x categories: Earn 5% cash back on the first $25,000 spent in combined purchases at office supply stores and on internet, cable and phone services each account anniversary year; earn 2% cash back on the first $25,000 spent in combined purchases at gas stations and restaurants each account anniversary year; earn 1% cash back on all other card purchases with no limit to the amount you can earn.

    Think of both of these offers as 75,000 points, which – if you have an Ultimate Rewards card whose points transfer to airline miles and hotel points – can be combined into one of Chase’s annual fee Ultimate Rewards products, and then transferred to a variety of loyalty program partners.

  • The Platinum Card® from American Express has an offer to earn 100,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $6,000 on purchases on your new Card in your first 6 months of Card Membership. Apply and select your preferred metal Card design: classic Platinum Card®, Platinum x Kehinde Wiley, or Platinum x Julie Mehretu.

    You can also always check to see if you’re targeted for an even bigger offer using the CardMatch tool.

    The first part of the offer is – itself – much larger than the public offer we’ve seen over the past couple of years. But the real boost comes from the ability to earn 10 points per dollar at restaurants worldwide and when you Shop Small – on up to $25,000 in combined purchases, during your first 6 months of cardmembership.

    The card is clearly worth getting on the basis of this new offer alone. However I keep my card and consider it worth the annual fee (See rates and fees) based on the $200 annual Uber credit; $200 annual airline fee credit (Southwest has been my airline of choice for this, enrollment required); $100 annual Saks credit (enrollment required); and lounge access (Centurion, Delta, Priority Pass which cardmembers need to request, Plaza Premium) and Hilton and Marriott Gold statuses, which you can register for. Plus there’s a slate of new additional benefits.

  • Chase Sapphire Preferred Card lets you 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 Rewards Club. Probably the best all-around credit card, certainly for getting started in the hobby, and with a great signup bonus.

    In fact since it has a bigger initial bonus offer than Sapphire Reserve (and you can’t get bonuses for both), and is easier to get approved for, 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 this card for folks who have signed up for 5 or more new card accounts in the past 24 months, it’s the first card you should apply for. (The same applies to the rest of the Chase cards on this list, too.)

  • 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).

    The card offers first checked bag on domestic American Airlines itineraries. There’s preferred boarding on American Airlines flights as well.

  • British Airways Visa Signature® Card back with an initial bonus offer to earn 100,000 Avios – with much more reasonable requirements. You earn this bonus after you spend $5,000 on purchases within the first 3 months from account opening.

    Chase issues not just the British Airways card but also sister Aer Lingus and Iberia products and they each have similar bonus offers.

    Active Avios accounts can transfer points between them, so it’s possible to pool points across the Iberia, British Airways and Aer Lingus programs. Of course like all Chase cards you generally will only be approved if you’ve had fewer than 5 new cards in the past 24 months (“5/24”).

  • American Express® Gold Card is my go-to for 4 membership Rewards points per dollar on restaurants and on the first $25,000 spent each calendar year at U.S. supermarkets. This is one of the best points-earning cards. It’s my primary American Express card for earning points, and Membership Rewards is my favorite points program. It also earns 3 Membership Rewards points per dollar on flights booked directly with airlines or on amextravel.com.

    In other words it’s a great card even aside from the initial bonus however right now there’s a best-ever bonus for the card. In the past there’s been a standard 35,000 point offer, and there have been targeted and referral offers that would come and go for more. But right now American Express has a big 60,000 point offer which is amazing: Earn 60,000 Membership Rewards points after $4,000 spend on eligible purchases within the first 6 months.

    This is a $250 annual fee card (see rates and fees). I value Membership Rewards points at 1.8 cents apiece, largely because of their wide array of transfer partners many of which offer exceptional value:

    • Star Alliance: Aeroplan, ANA, Singapore, Avianca
    • oneworld: AsiaMiles, British Airways, Iberia, Qantas
    • SkyTeam: Aeromexico,Air France KLM, Delta
    • Non-alliance: Etihad, Emirates, Hawaiian, JetBlue, Aer Lingus, Virgin Atlantic
    • Hotels: Choice, Hilton, Marriott

  • Chase Sapphire Reserve® offers an initial bonus to earn 50,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.
    Ongoing spend will earn 3X points on travel immediately after earning your
    $300 travel credit. 3X points on dining at restaurants & 1 point per $1 spent on all other purchases.

    The card’s $550 annual fee can make sense with the card’s $300 annual travel credit providing reimbursement for travel purchases charged to the card each account anniversary year.

    You can take your points and transfer them to a variety of airlines and hotel programs (same partners as Sapphire Preferred and Ink Business Unlimited), or use your points at 1.5 cents apiece towards travel through the Ultimate Rewards portal.

  • 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 earns More Rewards: Get 4X Membership Rewards® points on the 2 select categories where your business spent the most each month. 1X is earned for other purchases. 4X points apply to the first $150,000 in combined purchases from these 2 categories each calendar year. Terms apply. Eligible categories are: airfare purchased directly from airlines; U.S. purchases for advertising in select media; U.S. purchases at gas stations; U.S. purchases for shipping; U.S. computer hardware, software, and cloud computing purchases made directly from select providers.

    This is a $295 annual fee card. Terms apply. See rates and fees.

  • Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card Capital One is offering 60,000 miles once you spend $3,000 on purchases within 3 months from account opening, equal to $600 in travel. You’ll unlimited 2X miles on every purchase, every day (Transfer your miles to your choice of 15+ travel loyalty programs.) This $95 annual fee card also comes with up to a $100 application fee credit for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck®.
