Top 10 Best Credit Card Bonus Offers – May 2023 (Updated)
May Updates: Last call for Chase Sapphire 80k on 5/24 at 9 AM EST. Also added BA 75k, Southwest 60k+30%off, AmEx Green 60k+200.
Updated and checked May 2023. That space in your wallet or purse is valuable, and you should be the one to get that value. By being smart and picky, you can find offers worth $500+ for a single card, all to encourage you to apply and try it out. This adds up to thousands of dollars in extra income (over $5,000 in 2021). These are the top 10 credit card offers that I would personally apply for right now (or have already). Notable recent changes:
Added BA 75k, Southwest 60k+30%off, AmEx Green 60k+200, Sapphire 80k, AA 75k, Citi 75k, Aeroplan 100k, Alaska 70k+$100

If you pay off your balances every month, then you can join me and many others in funding a huge chunk of your annual travel budget with cash credits, points, and miles. I mostly use my rewards points on family trips – domestic economy flights, mid-range hotels, and cheap car rentals. If you have credit card debt, you should focus on paying that off first as the interest charges could offset most of the perks.
* 5/24 Rule? Certain Chase cards have a “5/24 rule” which is an unofficial rule that they will automatically deny approval on new credit cards if you have 5 or more new credit cards from any issuer on your credit report within the past 24 months (2 years). This rule applies on a per-person basis, so if you are new, you might want to start with those Chase cards.
