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

UPDATE- Post has been updated with some TD Aeroplan promotions and RBC Cathay Pacific.

Just to avoid confusion from previous monthly lists, this list is of credit cards with higher than normal sign up bonus promotions. There are still some decent regular sign up bonus promotions that would not be included here.

The list has really trimmed down for this month. I really hope that it picks back up as we lead into the fall, but with record profits, that doesn’t seem likely at the moment. That being said, 2016 has been a pretty good year for credit card sign up bonuses through the first half of the year. Hopefully companies will at least try to close out the year strong by picking things up in time for Christmas shopping (which is a great time to meet minimum spend requirements).
