Million Mile Secrets reader Paul Davis commented:
Do you track the most points ever offered for any particular card? I know some cards cycle on and off at different levels (like the Chase Ink Plus). And, I know some cards have 1-time offers (like the Citi Executive 100,000 mile offer).
I also acknowledge that history doesn’t necessarily provide the ability to predict what might happen in the future. Example I’m looking at right now: Citi ThankYou Premier card now offering 50,000 Citi ThankYou points. It looks like they have offered more at times in the past.
So, I don’t know whether to apply now or wait for a better, richer offer. Looking for some perspective. I hate the idea of applying and then seeing a better offer in 6 months. A chart with the most points offered by card would be fabulous.
Fantastic question and idea, Paul. I wish I could tell whether the top deals for each card will come back (and when).
Wouldn’t It Be Nice If We Could Predict When Top Credit Card Offers Will Return?
That said, let’s have a look at the highest sign-up bonuses ever offered for the most popular cards.
And I’ll give my best guess as to whether we’ll ever see these deals again!

Now that you can no longer load American Express prepaid REDcard directly with a credit card at Target, readers have asked which AMEX prepaid card they should use.
You can still load AMEX prepaid REDcard at Target with PIN-enabled gift cards. And you can
fund Bluebird and Serve at Walmart, and Serve at Family Dollar. But the rules for each card are different.
And you can only have ONE AMEX prepaid account.

I wrote several years ago about the best ways to get Hilton points.
Thanks to Million Mile Secrets reader Peter for commenting that it’s time for an update! A lot has changed since 2012.
Since then, Hilton has made significant changes to its award chart, so their points aren’t worth as much as before. But they’re still among the easiest points to get through credit card sign-up bonuses and spending.
Hilton Points Are Still Very Easy to Earn, and I’ll Show You How!
Hilton hotels include DoubleTree, Conrad, Embassy Suites, Hampton Inn, Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, Home2Suites, Homewood Suites, and Waldorf Astoria brand hotels.
Let’s take a fresh look at how you can earn lots of Hilton points.
