Top 10 Best Credit Card Bonus Offers – February 2021 (Updated)
Updated February 2021.That space in your wallet or purse is valuable, and you should be the one to get that value. By being smart and picky, you can find offers worth $500+ for a single card, all to encourage you to apply and try it out. We do this multiple times a year for thousands of dollars in extra income. These are the top 10 credit card offers that I would personally apply for right now (or have already). Notable recent changes:
Added Southwest new easy Companion Pass, Hilton 100k + $100 w/ no annual fee, Hawaiian 60k, Amex Rose Gold 60k+, Sapphire Preferred+.
Earn a Companion Pass through 2/28/2022 plus 30,000 points after $5,000 in purchases within the first 3 months. Limited-time offer ends 3/10/2021. See link for details.
Southwest still gives everyone two free checked bags.
New: Fast-track to 2021/2022 Companion Pass. Southwest gave all Rapid Rewards members who joined in 2020 or earlier a 25k credit towards Companion Pass. That means if you put $20,000 in purchases on this card during 2021 and satisfy the bonus requirements to get the bonus 80k, that alone would get you the needed 100,000 qualifying points for a Companion Pass good through end of 2022!
75,000 Membership Rewards points after $5,000 in purchases in first 6 months. See link for details.
10X Membership Rewards points per dollar spent at U.S. Gas Stations and U.S. Supermarkets, on up to $15,000 in combined purchases, during your first 6 months of Card Membership. That’s up to another 150,000 points!
$200 in Uber/Uber Eats credits annually.
5X Membership Rewards points per dollar spent on flights booked directly with airlines or with American Express Travel. Starting January 1, 2021, earn 5X points on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year.
Best airport lounge access program including Delta SkyClub and exclusive Centurion lounges.
50,000 bonus points ($750 value towards airfare) after $4,500 in purchases within 90 days. See link for details.
$325 in annual statement credits towards travel per Cardmember year (based on account opening date)
Up to $100 statement credit for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck.
Priority Pass Select membership for airport lounge access.
$400 annual fee. (Bigger bonus, big annual fee.)
If you pay off your balances every month, then you can join me and many others in funding a huge chunk of your annual travel budget with cash credits, points, and miles. You don’t need to be a “I only fly business class” world traveler. I mostly use my rewards points on domestic economy flights, mid-range hotels, and cheap car rentals. If you have credit card debt, you should focus on paying that off first as the interest charges could offset most of the perks.
Note: Certain Chase cards have a “5/24 rule” which is an unofficial rule that they will automatically deny approval on new credit cards if you have 5 or more new credit cards from any issuer on your credit report within the past 2 years. This rule applies on a per-person basis, so if you are new, you might want to start with those Chase cards.
