Update: All of these promotions have expired.
Update: I’ve since created a comprehensive list of credit card offers & promotions that contains far more than the handful of promotions available here.
It costs credit card companies $200 per new credit card sign up, so make them give you some of that via gift cards or straight cash:
- Business Gold Rewards Card – Get $250 in free money! (this deal will be expiring very soon) It is a business card but you can use your Social Security Number as your EIN (that’s what sole proprietorships do). Just as a warning, this card has a $125 annual fee that is waived for the first year.
- Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express – 10,000 StarPoints good for a $100 gift card to Amazon.com after your first purchase. Unfortunately no balance transfer and the $30 annual fee is waived for the first year.
- American Express Preferred Rewards Gold Card – 10,000 Membership Reward points will be credited to your Membership Rewards account 6 to 8 weeks after your first purchase, annual fee waived for the first year. 10,000 points is worth $100 in gift cards or 10,000 miles.
- CitiBusiness Card with ThankYou Network – $100 worth of Thank You Rewards after $250 in purchases.
