Looks like this time the only account that's giving a cash bonus has a minimum of 5k to waive fees.

Nope, option #2 has a $100 cash bonus + the points. :)

Yup, but I meant the extra $200 instead of the points.

Nice! Seems like the first year is fee free without 5k.

Correct. Still a good deal, IMO.

True, just not as good as it used to be. But look at the last post, it seems like you can get the $300 bonus without having 5k and without fees.

Confirmed. No fee for the first year regardless of 5k in account.

Would be cool if somebody put together a page that listed all of this information into an easy to read format. Here you go:

You can fund up to $2500 with a credit card (1, 2). The following code as a purchase, not a cash advance:

Bank of America: 1
Chase: 1
Marriott Business: 1
Sapphire Preferred: 1, 2
Sapphire Reserve: 1, 2, 3
Citi
AA: 1, 2
Santander credit card: 1

Numbers next to it represent linked datapoints, can't be bothered copying over the links though.

Lol, I just came here to copy paste this from your post. I personally funded it  with a chase card (once with freedom and I think once with CSP) and it coded as purchase.
