Which Sign-Up Bonus Is Better: 35,000 Hotel Points or 60,000 Airline Miles?

Update:   One or more card offers in this post are no longer available.  Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers. 

Million Mile Secrets reader, Yvette, commented:

I’m trying to decide between the limited time 35,000-point offer with the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express and a targeted offer for 60,000 American Airlines miles with the Citi® / Advantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ MasterCard®.  I can only meet the minimum spending requirements for one card at this time.

Great question, Yvette.

The best sign-up bonus depends on how you plan to redeem the miles or points to meet your travel goals.

If you’re unsure of your travel plans, I’d recommend the AMEX Starwood card.  Because you’ll earn flexible Starwood points, which you can use later for free stays at Starwood AND Marriott hotels or transfer to airline partners.

But the targeted 60,000-mile sign-up bonus with the Citi American Airlines card can potentially be more valuable.  Because you can redeem the miles for a one-way Business Class flight from the US to Europe, which might save you thousands of dollars.
