Credit Card Sign-Up Bonuses - Cash Back List

+39 Deal Score
26,930 Views
Decided to make a list of current cash back credit card deals. I know there are others out there regarding miles and other types of bonuses, but these listed here are strictly for cash back. If anyone has any others I missed please post up.

For all the CC churners out there, this could be helpful.

All spending must be done within the first 3 months to qualify for the sign up bonus. Then you can either choose to have the cash back applied to your statements, or sent to you via a check or electronic direct deposit to bank account.



Capital One Savor MasterCard - $150 back after spending $500

Barclaycard CashForward Mastercard - $200 back after spending $1,000

Wells Fargo Cash Wise Visa Card - $200 back after spending $1,000

HSBC Cash Rewards Mastercard - $150 back after spending $500

TD Cash Credit Card Visa - $200 back after spending $500

Chase Freedom Unlimited Visa - $150 back after spending $500

Chase Freedom Visa - $150 back after spending $500

Chase Sapphire Preferred Visa - $500 back after spending $4,000

Chase Ink Business Preferred Visa - $800 back after spending $5,000

Chase Ink Business Cash Visa - $300 back after spending $3,000

Chase AARP Rewards Visa - $200 back after spending $500

Blue Cash Preferred American Express - $250 statement credit after spending $1,000

If you are going to include things like Chase cards that actually give you UR instead of cash (but you can redeem it for cash- you just get WAY less value than if you use if for travel) you're going to have to also include all the Amex cards that give MR (where again you can redeem for cash/statement credits at lower value)...and the Citi cards where you can do the same with Thankyou points.

Amex also has offers on other non-MR cards for cash signups (BCE for example)

OP doesn't have to do anything. You can make your own thread if it bothers you so much.

I wouldn't say Chase's program is for lower value when used for cash back, its just that some of their cards give you more value for the points towards travel if you use their own travel booking service. But you have to compare the prices to sites like Orbitz and Travelocity etc.. sometimes the higher value towards travel is similar to what you would get elsewhere...anyway, not to go off on a tangent but... with Chase 1,000 points = $10 dollars. Pretty straight forward. With Chases program you just click Get Cash and choose your bank account and in 2 days direct deposit is done or ask for a check to be mailed to you.

Some point based programs like AMEX only allow for statement credits or gift cards. Not an actual check or direct deposit.

As for Citi, their point system is 1,000 points = $5, but you can list it here if you want just convert the points to the cash back value for SDers to keep the thread uniform. Then they can make the choice if they want to apply and redeem for the cash back value.

Quick copy and paste of the one you are interested in to Google and usually first or second link is to the application page.

When I read knights post I didn't take it at all as criticism. On the contrary, it was valuable insight and feedback and it's true.

Doesn't mean OP has to include anything, but who are you to judge what he or she may want to know from other people? Maybe they're seeking input to create a compilation of credit card bonuses that can be cashed in directly, or indirectly, for money and not points/miles.

Point is, you're out of line with your snarky reply and it's of no benefit to this thread. Hopefully others who are trying to learn will disregard your post.

That's not at all what he meant. He meant that, for example, you can transfer 5,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Hyatt and book a Category 1 Hyatt. Many of those regularly cost anywhere between $125-$200 per night - a much better deal than redeeming 5,000 points for $50 cash back. You could transfer 30,000 points to Singapore Airlines and fly United "first" class from the mainland US to Hawaii. A one way from New York is often over $1,000 or sometimes double -- a much higher value than redeeming them for $300 cash back. You could transfer 34,000 to Iberia and fly in flat bed business class from Chicago to Europe during off peak season - a ticket that is normally thousands. Etc.

He's not taking about booking travel through Chase, he's talking about using their transfer partners. Chase points are worth a lot more than cash back when used with their travel transfer partners.

Not sure if you're aware of the fact if you have a premium card (Chase Sapphire reserve, INK business etc) that you can transfer UR points to partners, such as Hyatt or United Airlines. Many are able to get over 2c per point. Others like yourself can redeem for cash, which is totally fine. There really isn't a right or wrong answer. Only thing that matters is you use credit cards and rewards to your benefit, which is completely dependent on your lifestyle.

Also, there's a way to get 1.25 CPP for MR from Amex but it does require opening a brokerage account and Platinum card. I'll be redeeming over $5k in the coming months through this method.

Others pretty much covered the Chase stuff.... the points are worth 25-50% more than cash value (depending which cards you have) via the travel portal (depending what card you have) and AFAIK you can book the same pricing as you can get anywhere else... but the "real" value is usually transfer partners where can you do significantly better than 25-50% about the cash value of the points



Same deal with Amex MR or Citi TU (as far as partner transfers go)- the points are worth a lot more than their cash value used that way.


That said a few things to correct-

Amex does only allow for statement credits vs. straight cash- but that's better

Taking the cash is always the worst possible option.

Because if you take $100 in cash you get.. $100 in cash.

If you CHARGE $100 to your card and get a statement credit to cover it you get $100... PLUS the point value of that $100 spend.



(though, again, the points will be worth considerably more for travel via partners)


As to Citi- the 1000 pts=$5 value isn't correct either... Depends which card you have. Some let you redeem for cash as high as 1 cent per point, so 1000 pts= $10, not $5. (Citi Prestige is an example of this)

Though again you can get better than 1 cent per point when used for travel.




If you want to restrict your list to only signup bonus info for folks who don't travel (and thus ignore the higher values using points for travel get you) you're certainly welcome to... but it seemed odd you'd then include Chase (which gives points, not cash, but can be used for cash/statement credits) but exclude Amex MR and Citi TU who have many cards that do the same (and have signup bonuses).


Oh- you left out BoA too, they've got a number of cards with signup bonuses and points/rewards that can be redeemed for cash/statement credits too.
