Limited Time Credit Card Offers

Category : Uncategorized

Credit card offers are more or less cyclical. There are historically certain times of year that you can get a higher offer than normal. Sometimes there are nice surprises, but there is some consistency.

That being said, here are some limited time offers I wanted to bring to your attention, and the churning rules associated with.

Delta Skymiles Gold Personal – 50,000 Delta Skymiles, $2,000 spend in three months, $50 Statement Credit

  • Churnable? No. AMEX Cards are currently once per lifetime. This is the highest public offer for this card.
  • Benefits: First bag checked free (does not include shuttle flights LAX-SEA, LAX-SFO, LGA-ORD, LGA-BOS, LGA-DCA), priority boarding.
  • Foreign transaction fee? None.
  • $50 Statement Credit: You can buy a $50 Delta gift card and get reimbursed for that expense, or use it towards an upgrade to economy plus.
  • Annual Fee: Waived for the first year, then $95
  • Offer ends: July 6, 2016.

Combine this card with an AMEX charge card (like the Gold or Business Gold) to merge pulls. See here for tips on pulling up that higher offer.

[Targeted] Chase United Mileage Explorer Plus – 70,000 United Miles, 5,000 for adding authorized user and $3,000 in three months

This is a targeted offer, so be on the lookout. See here if you’re targeted for the 70,000 point offer; here if you’re targeted for the 50,000 point offer. If you are only targeted for the 50,000 point offer, apply and Chase should match you to the 70,000 point offer within 90 days of applying.

  • Churnable? Sort of. With Chase’s new rules, you probably can’t get this card after 24 months; the only exception is if you’ve been targeted by Chase or United.
  • Benefits: First bag checked free, priority boarding, expanded award availability when signed in to linked Mileage Plus account.
  • Foreign transaction fee? None.
  • Annual Fee: $95, not waived.
  • Offer ends: Supposedly June 30, 2016.

The annual fee is most definitely worth it for 75,000 points.
