It has been raining new credit card offers this month which is pretty awesome for folks who are looking to increase their points and miles bonus! To see this many new card offers in a single month is pretty rare, especially ones this good! Here is a recap of the 10 new (amazing) credit card offers we’ve seen this month alone!

1. Capital One Spark Miles for Business

The Capital One Spark Miles for Business (Learn More) is offering up to 200,000 bonus miles! You’ll earn 50,000 miles when you spend $5,000 within the first three months, plus earn an additional 150,000 when you spend $50,000 on the card within the first six months. When you take into consideration the bonus points earned on the $50,000 spend, that will give you a total of 300,000 miles (the card earns 2 miles per dollar spent on all purchases). Learn more about the offer here.

With your miles, you can redeem them towards $3,000 in travel, or starting in December you will be able to transfer your Capital One miles earned to 12 partner airlines. This means your 300,000 miles earned could be transferred over to 225,000 miles in the airline of your choice. If you value those airline miles to be worth 2 cents per mile, then the miles earned could be worth over $4,500!

Sign Up Bonus Value: The value of the miles, including the miles earned from the sign up bonus are worth a minimum for $3,000 and if you transfer them to an airline partner, worth at least $4,500! The annual fee is also waived the first year and then only $95 a year.

The Capital One Spark Cash for Business (Learn More) is offering up to 200,000 cash back!

3. Capital One Venture Rewards

The Capital One Venture Rewards card is offering 75,000 miles after you spend $5,000 on the card within the first three months. This card works very similar to the Capital One Spark Miles for Business where you earn 2 miles per dollar spent and you’ll be able to transfer your points to the same 12 partner airlines in December. Although the benefits of the two cards are slightly different and this is a personal card where the Capital One Spark is a business card. FYI: There are also 50,000 mile offers floating out there so do not apply through one of those offers!

If you prefer to transfer your points to one of the 12 partner airlines, you’ll end up with 56,250 airline miles in the program of your choice. If you value the points at 2 cents per mile, that will give $1,125 towards travel!

Sign Up Bonus Value: The value of the bonus offer is $750 towards travel, although if you transfer your points to a partner airline program, at a 2 cent per mile value, the offer is worth $1,125. This card also has a $95 annual fee, waived the first year.

4. Southwest Rapid Rewards Priority Credit Card

With the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Priority Credit Card you can earn up to 60,000 bonus points. You’ll earn 40,000 bonus points when you spend $1,000 on purchases in the first 3 months, plus earn another 20,000 points after you spend $12,000 on purchases within your first year. While this is the exact same offer as the other two Southwest co-branded cards below, the benefits are quite different. Learn more about the offer here.

With the Priority version of the card, you’ll receive some additional benefits, which include:

  • A $75 Southwest travel credit every year, plus
  • 7,500 bonus points every year after your Cardmember anniversary (worth about $110), plus
  • Four upgraded boarding passes per year when available, plus
  • 20% back on inflight purchases made with the card

While this card comes with a $149 annual fee, once you factor in the $75 travel credit, that brings your yearly fee down to $74. When you then take into consideration the value of the 7,500 bonus points, you are coming out ahead and profiting $36! The math: $149 annual fee – $75 travel credit – $110 in points. Of course that doesn’t take include the value of the four upgraded boarding passes you’ll receive, but that is just an added bonus!

Sign Up Bonus Value: Southwest has a pretty straight forward fixed value for their points where each point is worth around 1.5 cents per point (there is a slight variation now that they’ve introduced some peak vs. off peak pricing and international awards price out a little different because of the taxes, but we are talking about .1 cents in either direction). This means the 60,000 points from the sign up bonus are worth $900 towards a Southwest “Wanna Getaway” ticket. On top of that, the 60,000 points count towards the amazing Southwest Companion Pass!

5. Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus Credit Card

You’ll earn 40,000 bonus points when you spend $1,000 on purchases in the first 3 months, plus earn another 20,000 points after you spend $12,000 on purchases within your first year. This is the least expensive card compared to the other Southwest co-branded cards, but the benefits are slightly less. Learn more about the offer here.

With this card, you’ll pay a $69 annual fee, but you’ll only receive 3,000 bonus points on your account anniversary. These points are worth about $45, which really brings down the cost of the annual fee!

Sign Up Bonus Value: Southwest has a pretty straight forward fixed value for their points where each point is worth around 1.5 cents per point (there is a slight variation now that they’ve introduced some peak vs. off peak pricing and international awards price out a little different because of the taxes, but we are talking about .1 cents in either direction). This means the 60,000 points from the sign up bonus are worth $900 towards a Southwest “Wanna Getaway” ticket. On top of that, the 60,000 points count towards the amazing Southwest Companion Pass!

With this card, you’ll pay a $99 annual fee and you’ll receive 6,000 bonus points on your account anniversary. These points are worth about $90, which means you are almost breaking even. It also shows that paying a higher annual fee is maybe even worthwhile compared to the Plus version of the card!

Sign Up Bonus Value: Southwest has a pretty straight forward fixed value for their points where each point is worth around 1.5 cents per point (there is a slight variation now that they’ve introduced some peak vs. off peak pricing and international awards price out a little different because of the taxes, but we are talking about .1 cents in either direction).

7. United MileagePlus Explorer Credit Card

With the United MileagePlus Explorer Credit Card offer you’ll earn up to 65,000 miles — earn 40,000 bonus miles after you spend $2,000 on purchases within the first 3 months, plus an additional 25,000 bonus miles after you spend $10,000 total on purchases in the first 6 months. This is the best offer we’ve seen for the card this year, although the minimum spend is slightly more (and seems to be the new trend, unfortunately). Learn more about the offer here.

One of the best perks of this card is that it comes with global entry reimbursement! Typically it is only the really expensive annual fee cards where we see this benefit, so to get up to $100 back on your Global Entry or TSA Pre✓® Fee is pretty awesome (and since Global Entry only costs $100, it ultimately makes it free!). The card also allow you and a companion to check your first bag for free, gives you priority boarding, and comes with 2 United Club passes per year.

Sign Up Bonus Value: United miles are typically worth somewhere between 1.5 and 2 cents per mile (although those looking to redeem for business and first class will see a much higher value). That means the 65,000 miles from the sign up bonus are worth around $1,375.

8. Barclaycard Arrival Plus® World Elite Mastercard®

With the Barclaycard Arrival Plus® World Elite Mastercard® you’ll earn 70,000 miles after spending $5,000 within the first three months! This is the best ever we’ve seen for this card and definitely one worth considering, especially since the $89 annual fee waived for the first year! *Terms Apply. See Rates & Fees.In the past, the publicly available offer typically ranges between 40,000-60,000 miles. With this card, you’ll earn 2x miles on every single purchase, plus when you go to redeem your miles, you’ll receive a 5% rebate back on your points. Ultimately this means you are earning 2.11% back on all purchases.

To redeem the miles earned from the Barclaycard Arrival Plus® World Elite Mastercard®, all you do is make your travel related purchase on the card (as if you normally would with any credit card), and once the charge hits your card, you go online and redeem the miles for that purchase. This means you do not need to worry about award availability for flights or hotels or blackout dates. You are just redeeming your miles at a fixed 1 mile = 1 cent. Then within a few weeks after redeeming your points, you’ll receive the 5% rebate on your redemption.

Sign Up Bonus Value: Since the miles earned are worth a fixed value of 1 cent per mile, the 70,000 miles are worth $700 towards any travel related purchase. You’ll then earn another $100 worth of miles after you meet the minimum spend for a total of $800. And on top of that, you’ll still receive the 5% rebate when you go ahead and redeem these points! Barclaycard Arrival® Plus World Elite Mastercard®

9. American Express Business Gold Card

Information about this card has been collected independently by Deals We Like. The issuer did not provide the details, not is it responsible for their accuracy.

While this offer isn’t nearly as good as some of the other offers listed on this page, it is much better than the publicly available offer out there which is a big goose egg. This offer is only available through a referral link and will give you 50,000 Membership Reward points after spending $5,000 on the card within the first three months. Read more on applying for this offer through a referral link.

This card does come with a hefty $295 annual fee, although you’ll now earn 4x Membership Reward points on 2 categories of your choice (select from: airfare, advertising, technology providers, gas stations, restaurants, shipping). The previous benefits of the card only earned you 3x points on just 1 category of your choice.

Sign Up Bonus Value: I personally value my Membership Reward points at around 2 cents per point, although I know many value them closer to around 1.7 cents per point. With that being said, you can always receive a much bigger value too when redeeming for business class seats with partner airlines. Assuming a 1.7 cents per point valuation, the sign up offer is worth about $850.

Overall…

This was a big week on the credit card front and ideal for those looking to rack up more points and miles to travel around the world!

  1. I recently applied for a business gold after verifying that I have not had this card before. I manage multiple accounts and applied so many cards over the years I can’t remember everything.

    after getting approved, used amex chat to confirm the ‘welcome offer’ and agent said, instead of confirmed 50k offer, I have this on my file. “Bonus offer misuse”

    I think I know what that means… but should I call and find out why? so I know what not to do? or just eat it and lay low for a while? I don’t want to be on the wrong side of Amex. or is it point less as once you are labeled as abuser, you are pretty much done with amex? FYI, they haven’t closed any accounts, clawed back any points and I don’t do MS.
