not sure how any people would care but i do: which cards allow secondary or infinity cards for no fee. i ask because my father wants to pay his property utilitites on cc and he needs a card that lets him have tons of additional cards

Why does he need more AU's to pay how bills? ???

For the citi visa 50k 2.5k/4 months $150 credit, I called citi to verify the bonus, but they couldn't find information regarding the $150 on my account. Is the link working?

According to the wiki in this thread, it seems to be that the wiki here is wrong about the $150 credit, or it may have changed recently as it change quickly with the citi cards.

BA                        25K for 10k/yr spend

southwest         companion ticket/ 110K pt earned


ALSO

Maybe a column for currency of points? SPG, MR, UR, Avios etc?

????? 25K bonus for 10k annual spending? You sure? Where do you see that?
Don't think the currency is necessary, then you'd need one for every card. It's pretty self explanatory, or GIYF

This is a screen shot of the offer I signed up with in Dec.  I didn't know it was any different than the current one.  (I have got both 50K and 25K for the 1st 10K spent.)

It is different than the current one.
And that's not an annual bonus, just a sign up bonus

+1.
That's just the second half of the (then) sign up spending threshold. Now they give you a companion ticket i believe, after 30K spending.

Great Job!

About a month ago, I put together a list of websites for the major banks' credit card offerings (feel free to cut & paste if it helps)

Amex Personal Cards: https://www304.americanexpress.com/credit-card/compare/25330?linknav=us-CCSG-ProspectNav-ViewAllCardsFilter
Amex Business Cards: http://www262.americanexpress.com/business-credit-cards

US Bank Small Biz Cards: www.usbank.com/cgi_w/cfm/small_business/products_and_services/credit_cards/credit_card_ps.cfm

Not the best offerings shown, but they do give you a fairly comprehensive list. You may want to include B of A's Alaska Air cards, some of the more obscure Barclays rewards cards, etc.

Welcome to DDF! Thanks for your help. However you may notice that each card name is a link directly to the best offers. If you have anything you want to add to the wiki, try playing around with it until you figure out how it works. Remember you can always use the Preview button before making changes to make sure that things didn't get messed up.

How do I sign up for Sapphire MC, the link seems to only be for Visa.

The recommended method here on DDF is to convert to MC and then apply for another Visa.

Thanks. I thought I would have a better chance at getting approved for a MC because I already have a bunch of Chase Visa's but don't currently have any MC's with Chase so I could use that fact if I need to call recon. I guess I'll have to just try it this way unless anybody has a better suggestion.

You can find a direct link to the MC at http://www.mastercard.us/
Though we prefer signing up for the Visa and using Dan's referral link, thus supporting the forum

Welcome to DDF!
This is not the right thread for that info.
About points vs cash it depends. If you like to travel, points can be worth far more than cash. If not, you can usually sell your points between 1.4-1.8 cpp, depending on which points and depending on when you sell the points.
