Personal Credit Cards With Cash Bonuses
Chase Sapphire Preferred: $600 – $95 Annual Fee
Sign up bonus is 60,000 points and these can be redeemed for cash or check 1¢ per 1 point, there is an annual fee of $95 that brings down the total cash bonus to $505. Requires $4,000 in spend within three months.
Wells Fargo Propel World: $400 + $100 Airline Reimbursement
This card gives you 40,000 points after spending $3,000 within the first three months. These points are worth 1¢ each. In addition you also get an airline reimbursement of $100 for incidental charges. There is a $175 annual fee but this is waived the first year.
Bank of America Premium Rewards: $500 + $200 In Credits – $95 Annual Fee
This is a 50,000 point sign up bonus after $3,000 in spend within three months worth $500 towards statement credit, you also get a $100 travel credit each calendar year (meaning you can get it twice and only pay the annual fee once). There is a $95 annual fee that is not waived the first year
American Express Charles Schwab Platinum: $750 + $920 In Credits – $550 Annual Fee
This card gives you 60,000 points after $5,000 in spend and also allows you to cash out Membership Rewards points at a rate of 1 point = 1.25¢. That makes the sign up bonus worth $750, unfortunately there is a $550 annual fee. That being said it comes with some other useful benefits:
- $200 in airline reimbursements per calendar year (e.g get two $200 credits and only pay one annual fee)
- $200 in Uber credits
- Limited time streaming and mobile credits
U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve: $750 + $325 In Credits – $400 Annual Fee

Star Trek: $300 – $39 Annual Fee
Annual fee of $39 is not waived the first year. Requires $2,000 in spend within 90 days.
Capital One Savor: $300 – $95 Annual Fee
When this card launched the bonus was $500 and the annual fee was waived, so might be worth waiting to see if a similar offer ever returns. Requires $3,000 in spend within three months.

Both cards offering bonuses of $200 after only $500 in spend. Neither card has an annual fee and the Freedom also offers 5% cash back in rotating categories.
