While travel may be nowhere near normal, the last few weeks have been great for credit card bonuses, with many card issuers offering a welcome bonus of 100k of more. Why does this matter? It means that card issuers and travel companies see things gradually improving over the next few months. Therefore, they want people to sign up for cards and accumulate miles and points for future travel. That and more as we recap stories from last week.

60,000 points + $470 in Year 1: Why now is the best time to get the Amex Gold Card

Amex is currently offering the highest public offer on the Amex Gold Card. With this current bonus, you’ll get a welcome bonus of 60,000 Membership Rewards points after you meet the minimum spend. What’s great is that Amex is giving you 6 months instead of the standard 3 months in oder to meet the minimum spend requirement. Moreover, I highlight how you can maximize all the credits and earn up to $470 in statement credits in the very first year of having the card.
