- When do the bonuses end?
- How long have they been going?
- What are the “normal” bonuses on these cards?
The Chase Marriott (personal and business versions) cards offer 80,000 bonus points after spending $3,000 in the first three months and paying an $85 or $99 annual fee.
These offers have been around since July 7, and there is a stated end date of August 31, 2015.
The normal offers have been 50,000 points after spending $1,000 in three months or 70,000 points after spending $2,000 in three months. Both those offers have the first year annual fee waived, so the difference in the limited time offer is more points for higher spending and payment of an annual fee.
American Airlines Executive Card
The Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ MasterCard® offers 75,000 bonus American Airlines miles after spending $7,500 in the first three months.
This offer has been around since July 2, and it has no stated end date.
The “normal” offer has been 50,000 bonus miles after $5,000 in spending, so the difference is 25,000 extra miles for $2,500 in extra spending in the first three months.
American Airlines miles are the best for super-cheap economy redemptions and ultra-luxury redemptions. The Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ MasterCard® also offers Admirals Club lounge membership, meaning you can access over 90 American Airlines Clubs in airports around the world whenever you’re flying–even if you’re not flying on American. Plus you can bring in any two guests for free OR your spouse and all children under 18 for free on each visit.
HHonors No Fee Card
The Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Visa Signature® Card comes with 75,000 bonus Hilton points after $2,000 in purchases within the first three months of account opening. The card has no annual fee ever.
This offer began July 7 and has no stated end date. The last limited time offer on the card, for only 50,000 bonus points, lasted about three weeks.
The “normal” offer has been 40,000 bonus miles after $1,000 in spending with occasional limited time offers for 50,000 bonus points plus a $50 statement credit. The current limited time offer is 25k to 35k more points for an extra $1,000 in spending in the first three months.
The Citi Prestige® Card comes with 50,000 bonus ThankYou Points after $3,000 in purchases made with your card in the first three months the account is open.
This offer began April 9 and has no announced end date.
The “normal” offer had been 30,000 bonus points, so the new offer gets you 20,000 more bonus points.
Not that this card is even primarily about bonus points. My FAQ of the Citi Prestige Card explains its many benefits like $250 in airfare or airline fee credits per calendar year, access to the American Airlines Admirals Clubs and Priority Pass lounges, 3x points per dollar on air travel and hotels, and a $450 annual fee.
Mid-2015 has been a gold mine of improved credit card offers. Many are limited time offers with no listed end date, which makes planning a challenge.
Don’t miss out on the offer that appeals to you. Get these 50,000 to 80,000 point cards before they disappear.
