Update 9/21/19: Bonus available again. Hat tip to Astheworldchurnd
- Bank Of The West is offering a bonus of 60,000 points after $5,000 in spend within 90 days on the Business Rewards Credit Card
- No annual fee
- Card earns 2x points per $1 spent
- Assume it’s restricted to AZ, CA, CO, ID, IA, KS, MN, MO, NE, NV, NM, ND, OK, OR, SD, UT, WA, WI, WY
Looks like points are worth 0.75¢ each. Can be redeemed for statement credit or cash, but looks like you need an account with them to see what those redemption options cost (0.75¢ each is confirmed for gift cards). Card doesn’t make sense to use long term as it’s basically 1.5% back on all purchases and other cards earn at a rate of 2%+. I’m not sure what business documents they require, but you can’t apply online directly (redirects to a page asking for contact details).
As the main issuers crack down on sign up bonuses with new complicated rules we’re going to need to start finding these smaller banks and understanding their processes. This is something we already do with great effect when it comes to bank account bonuses so I’m confident we can do it for credit cards as well. Readers might be familiar with Bank of the West already due to the bank account bonus offers they have.
