Top Credit Card Higher than Normal Sign Up Bonuses for October 2016

Another month, another list of higher than normal credit card sign up bonus promotions. As we close out the year, it does seem like we may be closing out the year strong, granted many of the current offers expire at the end of the month. This year has been a great overall year for credit card sign up bonuses, even though we’ve been seeing record high profits from the major banks.

That being said, there are some nice sign up bonuses to be had within the list below. Hopefully we will see a few more in November and December.
