Sallie Mae (Accelerate and Evolve) Credit Cards: $200 Credit Card Bonuses

Update 8/15/22: The old links weren’t working for a while. Added new public links for these $200 bonuses. (ht Avi)

The Offer

Direct links to offers: Accelerate and Evolve

  • Sallie Mae are offering a $200 credit card bonus after $1,000 in spend within the first 3 months.

Our Verdict

These cards were launched in late 2019, the cards are issued by Sallie Mae Bank. I have no idea how difficult they are to get approved for because applying didn’t really make any sense before. Neither card has an annual fee. This is a pretty good cash sign up bonus, if it’s easy to get approved for we will add this to our list of the best credit card bonuses. Accelerate should be $266.66 if redeeming against a student loan.

I received a personal invitation from Sallie Mae regarding Evolve Card. I currently have a savings account with them only and I have no student loans at all.

Looking for data points for The Evolve Credit Card…
1) what credit bureau do they pull from?
2) what are their starting credit limits?
3) do they have any special approval rules like Chase, Barks, or Citi?
4) minimum credit score needed
5) having a personal invitation, does that guarantee an instant approval?

10/24 – Denied. “Too many bankcard accounts opened in the last 24 months”

Went to the landing page and the bonus is mentioned but the only button is to enter personal offer code. Does this mean this deal is now ONLY targeted and dead to non-TARGETED people?

Thanks for updating the page with fresh links. They work now! Is it possible to get both cards or should I do one and wait a few months to do the other? How long is a safe wait period?

I don’t see the spending bonus on the linked page anymore. Is this dead?

I finally got the bonus. I was happy to see that there was an option to redeem it into my checking account.
