The Top Credit Card Spending Bonuses (updated March 6, 2015)

Below is another round of updates on the tip credit card spending bonuses. What I like most about perks for high spending is that the perk can often be a good enough benefit to help offset the annual fee renewal. Often times, we may not want to continue retaining a credit card for another year and have to pay the annual fee again.

One way to help offset an annual fee is to give a benefit for high spending with that credit card. It seems like a win/win for the credit card company and the customer. I just wish that we can see more of these benefits.

Ideally I would like to see a spending bonus that would completely waive the fee as well.

Below is a current list of some of the top offers for reaching a minimum spend requirement: (sorted by highest annual fee)
