The Best Historical Signup Bonuses for Popular Transferable Point Cards

We all want the best possible bonus. See how the current offer stacks up.

We are working on a feature that will track historical bonuses offers on all the cards we have at Your Best Credit Cards.

We also (already) have a feature that will notify you any time a bonus offer changes. Just click the link on each card page to be notified by email.

In the meantime, we wanted to go over the “Best ever bonus offer” for a handful of cards that we get asked about the most.

Current offers are listed with the cards below this section.

Those are:


Capital One

  • Capital One Venture X 100,000 bonus points plus $200 vacation rental credit when the card first launched. Do not expect a repeat.
  • Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card – There was a VERY brief “special link” 100k offer in 2023 that was likely a mistake or intended for a very small targeted audience. Otherwise, 75,000 bonus miles has been the best it’s ever gotten.
  • Capital One Spark Miles for Business – It’s never been higher than 50,000 miles for a reasonable spend amount. There have been occasional “high spend” offers requiring $50,000 of spend for $200,000 total miles.

American Express

Amex is tough to pin down best offers because they have so many different ones depending on what site you are on, if a friend refers you, Resy, etc.
