    • Four Marriott rewards points per dollar spent at U.S. restaurants, U.S. gas stations, wireless telephone services purchased directly from U.S. service providers and on U.S. purchases for shipping

Our Verdict

Last year we saw a 100,000 point offer and a $150 credit, but the credit required spend on U.S. Advertising in select media. This new offer is 25,000 less points but the $150 credit is much easier to earn as any purchases qualify. Because of this increased flexibility I will add this to our list of the best credit card bonuses.

Barclays 60,000 Hawaiian Airlines Bonus – Annual Fee Waived First Year

Update 2/16/21: Deal is available again, better than the 60k deal we posted a few days ago without the annual fee waived.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Receive 60,000 Hawaiian Airline miles after $2,000 in purchases within the first 90 days of account opening on the Barclaycard Hawaiian Airlines credit card

Card Benefits & Details

  • Annual fee of $99 is waived the first year
  • Card earns at the following rate:
    • 3x miles on all Hawaiian Airlines purchase
    • 2x Hawaiiamiles on gas, dining and grocery store purchases
    • 1x miles on all other purchases
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • ShareMiles, ability to share miles with friends & family HawaiianAirlines.com
  • Discounted Award Travel
  • Get $100 companion discount off one coach companion ticket for roundtrip travel between Hawaii and North America on Hawaiian Airlines on each account anniversary upon payment of annual fee
  • Free first checked bag

Our Verdict

60,000 miles is frequently available, but normally the annual fee is not waived first year. In this case it is waived first year, making this offer particularly attractive. In terms of what to do with the miles:

  • You can get flights for 35,000 miles round trip with the card from mainland USA to Hawaii, but there isn’t a lot of space available.
  • Intra island flights are 7,500 miles one way
  • You can also transfer the miles to Hilton at a rate of 1:1.5 (although I’d say this is a bad use of points) Not currently available
  • They also sell sunglasses (I forget the brand and amount, but seems to be a popular redemption)

As always if you have any questions about Barclays credit cards, read this post first. Keep in mind getting approved for Barclays cards can be extremely difficult (6/24 rule). I will be adding this to our list of the best credit card bonuses.

The Offer

Direct link to offer (this doesn’t show the doubling, but it will be doubled in branch)

  • BBVA is offering a bonus of 50,000 points (worth $500) after $4,000 in spend within the first 90 days on the BBVA Select credit card

Card Details

  • Annual fee of $99 is waived first year
  • Card earns:
    • 4X points on Entertainment,
    • 3X points on Dining,
    • 2X points on Travel
    • 1X point on all other purchases

Our Verdict

Standard offer I think is $100 or $200, we’ve seen as high as $300 in the past. Card isn’t worth keeping long term, but a $500 cash bonus in this climate is very very attractive. BBVA normally always pulls your TransUnion credit report, for most people that’s a good thing as it’s usually the least used bureau for most people.  I’ll add this to our list of the best credit card bonuses.

Post history:

  • Update: 7/31/20: Some people have received an e-mail offering them an additional 10,000 points when applying for a BBVA card. This can be combined with this $500 bonus for a total of $600. Subject line is ‘10,000 bonus points could be yours’

Chase Southwest Personal Cards: 80,000 Points (Plus, Premier & Priority) [Last Day]

Update 2/8/21: Today is the last day for this deal.

The Offer

Direct links to offers: Plus, Premier, Priority

  • Chase is offering a bonus of 80,000 points on all three Southwest personal cards. Bonus is broken down as follows:
    • 50,000 points after $2,000 in spend within three months of account opening
    • An additional 30,000 points after $10,000 in total spend within nine months of account opening

Offer valid through February 8, 2021, according to this signup link.

Card Details

  • Chase 5/24 rule does apply to this card
  • Annual fees are not waived the first year
  • The Premier personal card earn a 6,000 points anniversary bonus; the Plus earns 3,000 points anniversary bonus; the Priority earns 7,500 anniversary bonus

Our Verdict

Companion pass now requires 125,000 points in a calendar year to earn. Looks like the bonus on the Southwest business Priority card has also been increased to 100,000 points, but requires $25,000 in total spend to get the full bonus. You could get one of these personal cards and the business card and have more than enough for a companion pass. Applying for the cards at this time of year is also good as you can time your spend so the bonus posts at the start of 2021 giving you the companion pass for all of 2021 and all of 2022. These are the highest bonuses we’ve seen on these cards and will be adding them to the best credit card bonus page.
