With the increased 80,000 IHG point sign-up bonus after meeting minimum spending requirements on the Chase IHG card, it’s easy to see why it’s one of the top cards y’all are interested in.

Million Mile Secrets reader Nick is not only interested in the sign-up bonus, but the free night you get each card anniversary, that you can use at ANY IHG hotel!

It’s one of the reasons I keep this card in my wallet year after year.

Reader Denis is waiting for an even bigger sign-up bonus.  But he shouldn’t forget, the 100,000 IHG point sign-up bonuses are usually targeted. 😉

And Nina knows exactly how she wants to use the IHG points she’ll earn with the Chase IHG card…to visit her favorite hotel!

2.   Chase Sapphire Preferred

Link:   My Review of the Chase Sapphire Preferred

I’ve told you before why the Chase Sapphire Preferred card is my favorite card for beginners.  And lots of you are interested in this top rewards card!

Right now, the Chase Sapphire Preferred card is offering a 50,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards point sign-up bonus after meeting minimum spending requirements.  That’s worth at least $625 in travel when you redeem through the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal.

 

Reader Samir is excited to use his points for travel.  Because you can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to fantastic travel partners, like United Airlines and Hyatt, for lots of Big Travel with Small money!

3.   Barclaycard Arrival Plus

The Barclaycard Arrival Plus card is another popular card among readers.  Because you can earn 50,000 bonus Barclaycard Arrival Plus miles after meeting minimum spending requirements.  That’s worth $500+ towards certain travel purchases.

Plus, the $89 annual fee is still waived for the 1st year!  So you can essentially try it for free for 1 year, and decide whether it’s worth paying the annual fee!

Million Mile Secrets reader Candace likes the flexibility of Barclaycard Arrival Plus miles, because she can use them to offset the cost of travel expenses like airfare, hotel stays, cruises, car rentals, and more!

4.   Citi Prestige

Link:   My Review of the Citi Prestige

With the Citi Prestige card, you can currently earn 75,000 Citi ThankYou points after meeting minimum spending requirements.  It’s the highest sign-up bonus we’ve ever seen on this card!

Reader Ken appreciated that we let y’all know that the bigger sign-up bonus was coming, and plans to get the Citi Prestige soon!

 

Richard and Kelly are also excited about the better sign-up bonus.  Because 75,000 Citi ThankYou points are worth over $900 in airfare.  And potentially more when you transfer Citi ThankYou points to airline or hotel partners!

 

5.   Chase Sapphire Reserve

Link:   My Review of the Chase Sapphire Reserve

You can earn 50,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after meeting minimum spending requirements on the Chase Sapphire Reserve.  And one of the great perks with this card is that you can use the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal to book flights, hotels, and rental cars for less.  Because they’re worth 1.5 cents each when redeemed for travel!

So you’ll get $750 worth of travel with the 50,000 points you earn with the Chase Sapphire Reserve.  And you can combine points from other cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Freedom, Chase Ink Business Preferred, and more, to get the higher redemption value!

Million Mile Secrets reader Scott commented that he’s waiting to get under Chase’s 5/24 rule to apply for the card.

While readers LP and Jonathan plan on getting the Chase Sapphire Reserve soon, for the card’s great sign-up bonus!

 

Melanie also wants to apply for the Chase Sapphire Reserve card, because she’s impressed with Chase’s customer service and excited about the card’s perks.  Like the $300 annual credit for travel purchases such as airfare and hotels and the $100 statement credit for Global Entry!

6.   US Bank Altitude Reserve Card

Link:   My Review of the US Bank Altitude Reserve Card

A few folks expressed interest in the US Bank Altitude Reserve card, that comes with a 50,000 point sign-up bonus (worth $750 in travel!) after meeting the card’s minimum spending requirements.

Reader Brian already has the Chase Sapphire Reserve, and is considering the US Bank Altitude Reserve card as another way to earn valuable points worth Big Travel.

While Laarni is thinking about getting it because she’s well over Chase’s 5/24 rule, and therefore won’t qualify for most of the other Chase card offers!

the citi prestige link says it is $40,000 bonus points instead of $75,000…Is the higher bonus promotion over or there’s something I overlooked?

Million Mile Secrets

It’s still going on. You can find it with a quick internet search!

Got it! Thank you. Okay I have a question, to Dariaus and Emily. Please kindly let me know your suggestions. Anyone else is also welcome to chime in… I have opened a Citi AAadvantage Platinum Select, A Barclay AAdvanage Aviator, a Delta Skymiles Amex and the Chase IHG and Chase Ink Plus Business cards in the last three months. That is 4 personal and 1 business cards in 90 days. But thankfully Chase 5/24 does not apply to the IHG card. And I just realized that I also have the Citi Costco Reward card that was still opened within 24 months as Costco changed its partner not long ago… Does that mean I can only apply for one more card from Chase? Here comes the question, I got an email offer from Chase United Mileageplus that they are offering me a special of 70,000 points bonus with relatively smalll spending requirement which is very helpful for my international trips to Asia; But I do want to attempt to apply for the southwest premier personal and business with the special links you showed us of 120,000 points together. Do you think with my situation, I would have a shot at getting the southwest cards? Or if you think that my other option is safer? I am pre-qualified for Chase Sapphire preferred, but the sign up bonuses are smaller than the United Mileageplus with a high spending requirement. Really hard to make a choice now…Please your advice is highly appreciated.

How big credit limits are offered by US Bank in compare to other banks, such as Chase, Citi, Barclays, Bank of America or American Express? I never applied for US Bank card and I don’t want small cards in my credit report portfolio.

Million Mile Secrets

It’s always up to the bank. A couple of our team members report getting limits of $10,000+ so you might qualify for a nice credit line if your credit history is good!
