Top Credit Card Sign Up Bonuses for May 2016

Another month, another set of promotional offers to consider. Last month was a fairly extensively list. A bunch of credit cards have been taken off the list this time around, but still a fair amount to choose from.

I would note that a bunch of them will be expiry towards the end of the month, so if you have been thinking about them, you may want to jump on them sooner rather than later.

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

MBNA Sony Card Platinum Plus MasterCard – No annual fee, earn 10,000 sign up bonus points after your first purchase (no specified expiry date).

MBNA Best Western Rewards Platinum Plus MasterCard – No annual fee, earn 40,000 Best Western Rewards points after your first purchase (no specified expiry date).

* I will note that there is supposedly a 40,000 MBNA Best Western MasterCard promotional offer, but I have heard reports that people are trying to sign up through that link but only receiving 20,000 sign up bonus points. When you call into customer service, they are playing dumb that they have never heard of this offer. And when you provide them with that link, they say that the link is not working. So just beware of this glitch when you apply.

Earn an additional 5,000 miles if you apply between March 1, 2016, and May 27, 2016, as well as spend $1,000 within the first 90 days. Earn the final 5,000 miles when you add an authorized user and activate by July 15, 2016.
