How to Track your Spend Progress toward a Credit Card Signup Bonus
Many banks give tools to track your signup bonus by showing how much progress was made toward the bonus. This tracker is also helpful in confirming that the bonus is properly attached to the account and how much time remains. We’ve seen such tools from various banks, and I thought it was worth writing up a dedicated post. Please add anything we’re missing to the comments below and we’ll add it in.
(Our Original Post) American Express has sent out an email with a tracker which even updates in real time as you continue your progress toward the signup bonus. Some people have also gotten the tracker within their Amex login. It’s not clear if they are still offering either of these tracking system, as of now (March 2019).
Capital One sends out an email at some point along the way with information of how much progress you’ve made for the spend, as well as the number of days remaining, according to reader Jon.
(Our Original Post) Chase now has a signup bonus tracker in their online login and in app. Go to the points portal > Rewards Activity to see the tracker online; in the app, you should see it when clicking on the card. Not everyone is seeing it as of now, it may still be rolling out.
Back in 2015, Frequentmiler wrote about Citi’s online signup bonus tracker on cards like American Airlines and Hilton. It’s not clear if they are still offering this tracking system on any card, as of now (March 2019). Citi does send out an email at some point confirming your bonus offer, but without any progress tracking.
(Our Original Post) Wells Fargo has a signup bonus tracker which shows all details of your bonus progress and time remaining.
