Here is a list of some of the hottest credit card bonus offers out there for air travel and hotel stays.
#1 Hilton Visa – 80,000 Bonus Points after $2k spend in 3 months . 80,000 points is a great start but not enough for even one night at most of their top tier hotels but is enough for 3 nights in a Hilton Garden Inn or Hampton Inn. You still need to jump on this offer as it is one of the best they have had in the last few years. Also, the Hilton Visa does lots of promotions that are targeted such as a few I have right now. A few examples are spending $700 and getting 7,000 points and spending $10,000 for 10,000 points. Every bit helps you get towards your ultimate goal of a free night or two at a Hilton Resort. Also, make sure to grab the American Express version of the Hilton HHonors Rewards Card to the right. Apply Here.
#2 Citi Prestige Card (read here why this card is amazing) – 50,000 Bonus Points after $3k spend in 3 months. [creditcards.citicards.com] Tied with below:
#3 Citi Premier – 50,000 Bonus Points after $3k spend in 3 months. We applied for this card mostly because the annual fee of $95 is waived the first year. You could get both the Prestige and Premier cards to get up to $848 in American Airlines Flights.
#4 Marriott Visa – 80,000 Points after $3k spend in 3 months. You have until August 31, 2015 to take advantage of this offer but the annual fee is $85 is not waived. This is the best deal we have seen with Marriott Visa in some time and you can get another 80,000 with the business card for small business owners. If you do not plan on spending $3k and $2k instead there is also a 70,000 points offer available. It gives less miles but the $85 annual fee is waived and you get 1 free night (category 1-4) after you are approved. 80,000 is enough for 8+ free nights at category 1-2 hotels or 2 nights at the better hotels. Don’t forget about the Ritz-Carlton Rewards Visa Sign-Up Bonus which was as high as 140,000 Points a few months ago and all of those points convert to Marriott Rewards if you use your Marriott number on the application.
#5 Citi Executive AAdvantage – 75,000 Mile Bonus after $7,500 spend in 3 months. While this card has a $450 annual fee that is(not waived it comes with several valuable benefits including but not limited to Admirals Club membership and 2 guests, credit up to $100 to pay for expedited Global Entry, priority check-in, and free 1st checked bag which more than pays for the card. Plus you get reimbursed on some charges when flying. You can score up to 3 domestic round trip tickets. If you do not mind paying the huge fee that you will get back and spending $7,500 then this works out to be one of the best cards on the market.
