I spend hundred of hours each year scouring the internet looking for extraordinary sign up bonuses. One of the best ways (and a huge time saver) is by card matching with the individual credit card issuers.
This is how I received my 100k sign up bonus for the Citi Prestige card:
- As with any strategy, maintain a strong credit profile.
- Card match with Citi Credit Cards:
- Although my initial matches did not show anything special, two months later I received a targeted offer with a 100,000 sign up bonus of the Citi Prestige. The best generic bonus you usually see for this card is 50k.
Even though you may not get a great offer off the bat, don’t be discouraged. Many of times the best offers come month down the road via paper mail. If you are needing a new card urgently, this may not be the best approach, but for those looking for passive offers it’s a great strategy.
