Best Credit Card Bonuses with No Minimum Spend Required

We’ve all seen the crazy number of great credit card signup bonuses this year, but lots of people struggle with meeting the minimum spend on some of the cards. So, with that in mind, I thought I’d put together a chart of the best credit card bonuses that don’t require any minimum spend.

As always, place any corrections or additions in the comments and I’ll update the chart.

(If you missed my earlier chart of airlines that charge fuel surcharges on award tickets, you can view it here).

  1. I already have the Continental OnePass plus card. Can I still apply for the United MileagePlus and get that bonus, too? I guess that might not be a bad idea.

    Should I hold off to see if the offer from MileagePlus gets better? Or will my Continental card be rolling into United soon and prohibit me from getting the additional card?

    • As long as you never had the previous United credit card, you should be fine.

      If you’re in no rush, you may want to wait. There’s been all sorts of rumors about additional points.
