I may have financial relationships with some of the cards mentioned in this post. I appreciate your support if you decide to use my links!
This deal appears to be dead per the appropriate FlyerTalk thread and some comments in this post. If you can still access this offer, please let me know. Congrats to everyone that got in on it!
Note that I had to heavily edit this post for various reasons. Sorry for the removal of the images and some other minor info!
Via user jimmicka on FlyerTalk (thread was locked, now shut down) (update: new FT thread here) and chatter on Twitter today, there’s a possible offer for 100,000 MR points after just $3,000 spend in 3 months. This is an EXCELLENT offer that I recommend you take advantage of if you can handle the credit. To put 100K points in perspective, it’s enough for a round trip Business Class ticket from the US to Europe or a one-way from LAX-NRT-SIN in Singapore Airlines’ famed First Class Suites!
Also remember that this card has a $450 annual fee, not waived the first year. This amount is nearly paid for with a $200 airline credit per calendar year, so your real payment is $50 if you work it correctly ($200 this year, $200 January 1, 2014). I’ll follow up on the details of this in another post.
Here’s how to see if you’re eligible for the offer.
- Go to creditcards.com (this is my affiliate link, appreciate your support! And to be honest, I don’t even know if I’ll get a commission for this one!)
- The first option on the left menu says “Offers Matched for You.” Click it.
- Enter all your info and submit.
- The top offer should be the one you’re looking for! (and note the PRG offer for 50K points is pretty good also)
UPDATE: Some FT members are reporting being approved for BOTH cards. YMMV on if you get both bonuses!

If you have any doubts, just know that I applied for this offer myself! I took screenshots the entire way through just in case there are any issues down the road (better to be safe than sorry). I recommend you take screenshots as well. When I finished applying I received the screen everyone loves to see: Approved!
So go ahead and take advantage of this offer if you can!
