It’s time for quick update on some of the major changes we’ve seen with credit card offers this month. Here is a review of the major updates:
Amex Starwood sign-up bonus back to 25,000
Last month Amex was offering an all-time high 35,000 point sign-up bonus on the SPG credit cards. This was nice to see, but what big changes are still to come with the SPG and Marriott merges are not clear.
Currently the offer has dropped back to it’s standard level of 25,000 bonus points, but maybe we will see another push to get people signed up for the card before the SPG/Marriott merger completes.
Increased bonus offers on Hilton cards
Right now Amex is offering some all-time high offers on it’s co-branded Hilton cards. You can get 100,000 Hilton points with the Surpass card and 75,000 Hilton points with the no-fee Amex Hilton card.
JetBlue card offered by Barclays
BarclayCard released it’s new co-branded JetBlue credit cards. There are two version available:
The JetBlue Plus Card ($99 annual fee) – 30,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 in the first 90 days
The JetBlue Card ($0 annual fee) – 10,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 in the first 90 days.
Previous Amex has offered the co-branded JetBlue credit cards. Let’s hope with the new BarclayCard products that we will see some more interesting sign-up bonuses and perks.
New 75k Chase IHG card bonus available
A new offer is available for the Chase IHG credit card. You can earn up to 75,000 points when you spend $2,000 within the first 3 months and add an authorized user.
This card has long been one of my favorite cards to keep open year-after-year due to the annual free night given when you pay the $49 annual fee. This free night certificate can be used at any IHG hotel making it a huge value for $49. If you plan to stay at almost any IHG hotel once a year you can’t go wrong and will end up saving a bit of money.
