Top Credit Card Higher than Normal Sign Up Bonuses for January 2017

This is the first list of 2017. Hope to start the year with a bang. However, 2016 was a very strong year for credit card sign up bonuses, so I am expecting a pull back this year.

For now, here’s the list to start the year, many of which are a carry-over from last year.

List of Top Credit Cards Sign Up Bonuses

For now, I have ranked the few credit cards promotions by the price of the annual fees (lowest to highest) and then in alphabetical order:
