What are the current best credit card offers?
« on: February 16, 2017, 06:44:44 PM »
We were planning to get the Chase Sapphire Reserve, mostly due to the large upfront points bonus. We are spending a few thousand dollars in the next couple months so it seemed like a good time to finally get it.

But it ended in January! Switched to a 50k bonus. I'm not convinced it is a great deal for 50k points. OTOH, I really want the airport lounges, and H travels regularly for work and would get the global entry.

I saw one blog post that said you might still be able to get 100,000 points of you apply in person in a Chase bank.

Thoughts?

I applied in person at a Chase bank on Tuesday and got the 100,000 point offer. They said the in-branch 100k offer was valid through 3/12/17.

I'm considering getting that card next as well! Good to know you can still get the 100k bonus by applying in person.

For the best current offers right now, also check out the ones that are recommended on the MMM page! http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/credit-cards/

Would also spend some time reading the http://thepointsguy.com/ -- does a pretty good job of deal tracking and assessing the value of various points programs.
