Hi guys,

Depends on what you're wanting exactly out of the card. There is a 70,000 point bonus plus free annual night stay for the Marriott Premier. If you don't use Marriott the CSP has a good sign-up bonus. 40k points.

If you click to apply it tells you that it expired. Then redirects you to the 50K bonus. Try it.

How much of a statement credit is worth the 50K bonus? Looking for mainly cash back check or statement credit or something towards airfare.

I already have the CSP.

I see. Well even at 50k it is a good offer if you're a Marriott fan. The Hyatt card is good as well. OP there are a lot of good offers out there, just need to decide what you're looking for.

If you fly United, Explorer is 30k, there are 50k targeted offers. Amex Delta is 30k. Barclays Arrival is 40k

Most if not all, have additional bonus mikes if an AU or additional spend is met.

I'm gonna be flying Emirates. And just looking for the highest. I can take care of the spending requirements as I'll just run some of my business expenses I use checks for, onto the credit.

@09lexie

That Barclay arrival card also caught my attention. Since its worth $400 statement credit toward airfare and first year includes waived fee.
