One of the easiest ways to get a lot of miles and points quickly is by applying for credit cards with large sign-up bonuses.  We’ve seen lots of great sign-up bonuses over the last few weeks!

But the Marriott 70,000 point offer ends later today, so I’ve made a list of my favorite current offers with big (50,000 or more) miles and point sign-up bonuses.  Some of these are increased offers that are only available for a limited time!

You can fly to Europe this fall for half the miles with the newest Flying Blue Promo Awards from KLM and Air France.  These are now updated monthly instead of every couple of months.

If you don’t have Flying Blue miles, you can transfer points from American Express Membership Rewards or Starwood points. 

With the new set of Flying Blue Promo Awards, you can fly from ChicagoHouston, or Washington, DC, to Europe in coach class for 50% fewer miles.  Tickets must be booked before August 31, 2014 for travel:

  • Between October 1, 2014, and November 30, 2014 (Houston and Washington, DC)
  • Within November 2014 for Chicago

Even if you don’t live near Chicago, Houston, or Washington, DC, you might still be able to use these awards.  That’s because there are lots of ways to get to these cities cheaply.  I’ll explain!

Hi,
I got the Chase British Airways Visa card a few years ago to get the 100,000 British Airways Avios points.  I also got another card for my wife, as an authorized user.

Can she apply for her own Chase British Airways Visa and earn her own British Airways Avios points bonus?  Do we have to cancel the card under her name that’s listed on my account?  Are there restrictions on this?
