This card has gone through a lot of different offers. When this card first launched it had a 100,000 point bonus, then 70,000 points, then it was 50,000 points and no annual fee, then 50,000 points with the annual fee and now finally 75,000 points with the annual fee. This card is still insane value due to the fact that authorized users also get their own airline credit and you can up to three of them. Because of that I will be adding it to our list of the best credit card bonuses, even though this isn’t the highest offer we’ve seen on this card.
Keep in mind it is difficult to get approved. You need to go in branch to apply branches are in: NY, DE, GA, TN, NV & CA, D.C., MN with the vast majority of branches in California [branch locator here]. They are also a very selective bank looking for high networth/income individuals (although some reports of people getting approved with lower salaries). You should also be able to apply in branch even if you don’t live in a state with branches. If you live near a branch or are planning to be near a branch at any stage I definitely think this card is worth applying for.
