Which Sign-Up Bonus Will You Earn If Your Card Application Is Approved After a Limited Time-Offer End Date?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Amanda, commented:

I applied for the limited-time AMEX Starwood sign-up bonus on the last day of the offer.  But I was approved the day after the offer ended when the sign-up bonus decreased.  Will I earn the higher sign-up bonus?

Great question, Amanda!

Lots of folks wait until the end of a limited-time offer to apply for a card.  And this could be the reason your application isn’t instantly approved.

But as long as you submit your card application before the limited-time offer ends, you’re eligible to earn the sign-up bonus that was available on the day you applied.
