Has anyone heard anything about the 30k deal coming back? Or should I just apply for the 25k?

I'd wait a bit to apply but if it comes back anytime soon you can always try to get matched.

I'd hold off on SPG apps for the next few weeks in hopes of a return of the 30K summer promo we've seen the last 2 years.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

My mother got matched from a 15,000 to a 20,000 recently but maybe that was a fluke.

 Guess I was wrong.

Anyways..what month did the 30,000 come out last year?

So wait until at least July 16th to see if it comes back?

All of this bated breath for an extra 5k.
Imagine if they ever had a 50k bonus...
sigh

They don't have to as 30K SPG is worth more than say a 50K BA bonus.

How awful would it be if they dropped the bonus to 15k instead of raising it

But the SPG card is great for spending so they don't have to offer such a sweet signup bonus (similar to Freedom).

Do people churn the SPG? Or is it too difficult so they just sign up for it once and then keep the card open ever year

I know you can churn part of the bonus, but I thought the other part of the bonus was once per person? Sort of like the Southwest Card and its bonus
