Here we are again with another roundup of the top credit card offers of the week. This was a particularly good week for card offers as several cards are at their previous high, public offers.

Top Credit Card Offers of the Week – October 8

Card Offer Suggestions

All of these offers come around from time to time so there is certainly no haste needed, unless you need miles for these airlines. But, they are some good offers and if you are tapped out at Chase for new card offers, it could be a good time to turn to more Amex cards or Citi cards. Just be aware of the rules for each.

If you were going to get just one card right now and can get a business card, I would suggest the SPG Business card. It is likely to go away next October but there is no way of knowing if this offer will be back this high again.

American Express SPG Business Card

  • Earn 25,000 bonus Starpoints after you use your new Card to make $6,000 in purchases within the first 3 months
  • Earn an extra 10,000 bonus Starpoints after you make an additional $4,000 in purchases within the first 6 months
  • Annual fee – $95 (waived the first year)
  • Receive elite status credit of 5 nights and 2 stays each year
  • Enjoy complimentary, unlimited Boingo Wi-Fi on up to four devices at more than 1,000,000 Boingo hotspots worldwide. Enrollment Required
  • Enjoy complimentary access to the Sheraton® Club lounge. Booking requirements apply
  • You are not eligible for this bonus if you have ever had the card before!
  • Offer ends 11/1/2017

American Airlines AAdvantage Platinum Select

  • Receive 60,000 AA miles after spending $3,000 in the first 90 days
  • First checked bag free
  • $95 annual fee (waived the first year)
  • Issued by Citi
  • Bonus not available if you opened or closed an American Airlines personal card from Citi in the last 24 months
  • Notes: Great card offer! AA miles are not quite as valuable as they used to be but 60,000 miles is still enough for at least a roundtrip to Europe in coach and even one way in business class on AA or their partners. Definitely a good card to get!

American Express Delta Gold

  • Limited Time Offer: Earn 50,000 Bonus Miles after you spend $2,000 in purchases within the first 3 months and a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your new Card within your first 3 months.

  • First checked bag free

  • Issued by American Express
  • Bonus not available if you have ever had this card before
  • Notes: This Delta card hits this amount every few months. Delta miles are definitely not worth what they used to be but they do run award sales from time to time. Also, there have been quite a few new drops in awards by distance. If you are in a hurry for Delta miles, go for it. Otherwise, wait until it comes around again. This is a strong offer to go for.

It is completely possible to get more than that in value from the miles but if you want just one card, go for the Gold card.
