Since credit card offers are constantly changing, I wanted to point out my top offers on a monthly basis. Typically I limit it to just 5 offers, but with so many new offers recently, I needed to up it to 6 offers. Of course this list does not include all offers currently available, which you can see a compiled list here. Almost all of the offers I have listed below are only available for a limited time and are ending at the end of the month. So here are my personal favorite credit cards for June 2015:

  • Gold Delta SkyMiles®Credit Card from American Express / Gold Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express: Earn 50,000 points after spending $2,000 in purchases on the card within the first three months. Plus, receive a $50 statement credit after your first Delta purchase within the first three months of cardmembership. $0 introductory annual fee for the first year, then $95 a year. This limited time offer will be available for signups through June 30, 2015.
    • Perks:First checked bag for free for both you and 8 other passengers on the same itinerary. You’ll also get priority boarding, a 20% in-flight savings, and discounted SkyClub access. The benefits are pretty basic, but free checked baggage can really save you money depending on how you fly. The business version of the card will also give you access to OPEN Savings, which can give a 5% savings on many business expenses, such as FedEx, Hertz, Office Max, and Hyatt.  There is also no annual fee for additional card holders.

  • Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express / Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express: Earn 60,000 points and 10,000 Medallion® Qualifying Miles (MQMs) after spending $2,000 in purchases on the card within the first three months. Plus, receive a $100 statement credit after your first Delta purchase directly with Delta within the first three months of cardmembership. $195 annual fee. This limited time offer will be available for signups through June 30, 2015.
    • Perks: First checked bag for free for both you and 8 other passengers on the same itinerary. You’ll also get priority boarding, a 20% in-flight savings, and discounted SkyClub access. The real perk of this card is that you can earn bonus miles and MQMs annually with high spend. With this card you’ll earn 10,000 miles and MQMs for the first $25,000 in spend during the calendar year, and then another 10,000 miles and MQMs after you spend $50,000 total in the calendar year. You also get a companion certificate annually.

  • Chase FreedomEarn 20,000 points after $500 spend within the first three months.You’ll also earn an additional 2,500 points (worth $25) if you add an authorized user within the same 3-month period. No annual fee! This is double the regular offer and since it requires little minimum spend and has no annual fee is a great card to have in the wallet. This is a limited time offer that expires June 24, 2015.
    • Perks: This card earns you limited Chase Ultimate Reward points where you can redeem your points for cash; 1 point = 1 cent, so 20,000 points equals a flat $200. However, if you have another Chase Ultimate Reward earning credit card (Chase Ink Bold, Chase Ink Plus, or Chase Sapphire Preferred), you can transfer your Chase Freedom points to one of those three cards and then transfer your points directly to a partner loyalty partner if you’d get a better value from your points. This card has 5% quarterly rotating categories, so you are ultimately earning 5x points up to $1,5000 spend per quarter. This can equal $75 on some very popular spend categories. The current 2015 bonus spend categories include:
      • January-March: Grocery Stores, Starbucks, Movie Theaters
      • April-June: Restaurants, Bed Bath & Beyond, H&M, Overstock.com
      • July-September: Gas stations (and possibly more categories added)
      • October-December: Amazon.com (and possibly more categories added)

  • Starwood American Express: Earn 25,000 bonus points after you spend $3,000 on the card within the first 3 months of card membership. Annual fee waived for the first year and then $95/year. *Terms and limitations apply
    • Perks: This is one of my two everyday go-to cards for purchases that do not fit in a bonus spend category for other cards. I absolutely love earning Starwood points and find them extremely valuable. When redeeming Starwood points you also receive your 5th night free when redeeming at category 3-7 hotels and their Cash & Point redemption options are very favorable. Additionally, if you prefer miles you can transfer your SPG points to many airlines at a 1:1 ratio and get a 5,000 bonus for every 20,000 increments transferred over. This can be a great value and makes the Starwood card more valuable on your everyday spend then any other airline card. This will give you much more flexibility and a 25% increase in miles if you decide to redeem your points for flights. By having the card you receive 2 stays and 5 nights towards status annually. And if you have both the personal and business card you can get those stays/nights towards status per card! Starting August 11, there will also be new added benefits to the card – you can learn more about them here.

  • SimplyCash® Business Card from American Express: $250 statement credit after you spend $5,000 on qualifying purchases on the Card within the first 6 months of Card Membership. No annual fee. Limited time offer valid for applications received by April 27, 2016. *Terms and limitations apply.
    • Perks: This card rivals the Chase Ink Classic and Cash card where you earn 5% cash back at US office supply stores and wireless phone providers purchased directly from the U.S. wireless phone provider (up to the first $25,000 spend) and 3% cash back on a category of your choice (select one out of seven categories, up to $25,000 spend). With this card you also have access to the American Express OPEN Savings where you’ll receive a 5% statement credit at participating merchants (Hertz, Hyatt, FedEx, etc.). And since it is an American Express you can take advantage of my favorite promotions – the Amex Sync offers where you can earn statement credits for select purchases.

  1. With Delta plat card, do you get the companion cert in the first year or only upon annual renewal. And is the companion ticket free?

    • @J – The companion ticket is upon account renewal. The companion ticket is free, although you are responsible for taxes/fees.

  2. What, no mention of the change in the way chase is approving applications for the freedom. They now are looking at the number of cards you have taken out in last 24 months. If you are at five or more cards (whether from chase, citi, Amex, Barclays or other) taken out, you will be denied on this application as having taken out too many cards in last 24 months. Change in policy applies to freedom, slate, sapphire and ink applications.
