What are the best bonuses right now for opening a visa/mastercard? I currently only have Amex and Discover, but often run into merchants that don't accept either. The "best" reward I see is with BankAmericard giving $100 back for spending $500 in 3 months, but I'm told that I should look for a better deal.
Also, between Visa and MasterCard, is there any advantage in having one over the other?
Are there particular times of the year when there are more bonus offers around? I'm looking for a good sustainable rewards card with no annual fee that I can keep using for a few years. It won't be my primary card, so I'm not in a huge rush to get one if there aren't any decent bonus offers. However, it does get annoying having to pay cash at places that don't accept my current cards right now.
Anyone know of a credit card deal where you spend $xxxx.00 and get xxxx points within a certain month period?
Example: Spend $4000 in 3 months and we'll give you xxxxx points.
I'm not sure if your still looking and maybe you saw the Ink Plus on the frontpage this week that is offering 70,000 points for $5k spend in 3 months. I've been watching and reading many travel blogs and these offers come and go. There were some great ones last year that I missed. There are tons of tricks to this and it depends on how you spend and what kind of rewards work for where you spend time & money. You might also look into MS tricks (manufactured spending) on how to hit the minimum spend.
