Best Sign-on Bonus
« on: March 15, 2012, 10:55:26 AM »
I have an Amex Preimer Rewards Gold Card and Continental One-Pass (not sure if its still called that) -- I am looking to open a new cc with a high sign on bonus so I can use the points to fly --- what's the best sign on bonus going on now?

I also want something that is free for a year -- no fee for the card for 1st year.

Probably bad value for points, get an amex plat, sell the points buy and a hotel. Otherwise get an amex/chase transfer points to BA or UA to book the flights. I can't believe points would be worthwhile for Houston, but you can use Hyatt from Chase or transfer some of the amex to SPG.

Just sign up for the United card for 50k miles and that gives you two tickets.  Fee free for the first year.

Are you referring to the "black card" from Amex?
