The Delta cards from American Express are offering higher than ever sign-up bonuses so it’s worth snagging these cards if you haven’t already. Also, the 60,000 point sign-up bonuses are still going strong on the Southwest credit cards, so if you don’t have the Companion Pass yet, now’s the time to get it! In case you’re looking for something else, check out the full list of top credit card sign-up bonuses for June 2019.

Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express (Personal and Business)
Gold Delta Credit Card from American Express
  • Personal: 60,000 miles after spending $2,000 in the first 3 months and a $50 statement credit after making a Delta purchase in the first 3 months
  • Business: 70,000 miles after spending $4,000 in the first 3 months and a $50 statement credit after making a Delta purchase in the first 3 months
  • $95, waived first year

60,000 miles is a typical offer for the personal Gold Delta card. If you haven’t gotten the business card yet, it might be worth it for the higher sign-up bonus if you can reach the minimum spending requirement. It’s fairly simple to get the $50 statement credit on these offers; I paid $5.60 in fees on an award booking to trigger it. You can also buy a $50 Delta gift card. For those looking to build up their SkyMiles account, now’s the time to do it. As a note, SkyMiles never expire but they can be devalued over time. 

Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Cardfrom American Express (Personal and Business)
Platinum Delta Credit Card from American Express
  • Personal: 75,000 miles and 5,000 MQMs after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months and a $100 statement credit after making a Delta purchase in the first 3 months
    Business: 80,000 miles and 5,000 MQMs after spending $6,000 in the first 3 months and a $100 statement credit after making a Delta purchase in the first 3 months
  • $195

The Platinum Delta card from Amex comes with a $195 annual fee, but is a great option for those who are trying to earn elite status with the airline or if you already got the Gold card. Even if you aren’t after Platinum Status, this card is a great pick for frequent flyers on Delta since the $100 statement credit can help offset the annual fee. The 80,000 point sign-up bonus on the business card is the highest ever!

Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express (Personal and Business)
  • Personal: 75,000 miles and 5,000 MQMs after spending $5,000 in the first 3 months
    Business: 80,000 miles and 5,000 MQMs after spending $6,000 in the first 3 months
  • $450

This card isn’t for everyone given the steep annual fee. However, if you fly Delta frequently, it might be worth it for Delta Sky Club access and a domestic round-trip companion certificate each year upon renewal of your card. The 80,000 point sign-up bonus on the business card is the highest ever so if you were thinking about getting this card, now’s the time!

Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Business Card from Chase
southwest premier business
  • 60,000 points after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months
  • $99 annual fee

You can pair the Southwest business card with one of the Southwest personal cards to get the Companion Pass. If you earn the Companion Pass now, you will have free flights for your Companion for one and half years!

Southwest Rapids Rewards Priority Card from Chase
southwest priority
  • 60,000 points after spending $2,000 in the first 3 months
  • $149 annual fee

If you travel with Southwest frequently, this card might be worth it despite the $149 annual fee. In addition to a $75 annual travel credit, you get four upgraded boardings per year, and 7,500 bonus points on your cardmember anniversary.

Southwest Rapids Rewards Premier Card from Chase
southwest premier
  • 60,000 points after spending $2,000 in the first 3 months
  • $99 annual fee

This card is a good option for earning the Companion Pass with a lower annual fee. However, if you can make use of the $75 Southwest credit on the Priority card, that might be a better choice since this card only comes with 6,000 points on your cardmember anniversary.

Southwest Rapids Rewards Plus Card from Chase
southwest plus
  • 60,000 points after spending $2,000 in the first 3 months
  • $69 annual fee

This is the Southwest card with the lowest annual fee so if you are going for the Companion Pass and want the lowest out-of-pocket cost, this may be the card for you. The Southwest Plus card offers 3,000 points on your cardmember anniversary.

Chase Sapphire Preferred
Chase Sapphire Preferred
  • 60,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first 3 months
  • Earn 5,000 points for adding an authorized user
  • $95 annual fee

This is about as good as this sign-up bonus will ever get. The annual fee is no longer waived for the first year, but I think the extra 10,000 points makes up for it. The rules on Chase Sapphire cards are now pretty strict, so make sure you are eligible before signing up.

Alaska Airlines Visa Signature from Bank of America

  • 40,000 miles and $100 statement credit after spending $2,000 in the first 3 months
  • Companion Fare – Buy one ticket, get one for $99 + taxes and fees
  • $75 annual fee

The Alaska Airlines credit card offers usually sit at 30,000 miles for $1,000 spending requirement. Since these miles are so versatile, the extra $1,000 spend is worth it for 10,000 more miles. Also, the $100 statement credit helps offset the annual fee. Just be careful with Bank of America’s new rule. There is also a similar offer on the business card, but without the statement credit.

Barclays AAdvantage Aviator Red World Elite Mastercard
Barclaycard Aviator Red
  • 50,000 miles and a Companion Certificate ($99 plus taxes and fees) when you make your first purchase in the first 90 days and pay the annual fee
  • $95 annual fee

It’s rare these days to see an offer with such a high bonus without a spending requirement. You’re essentially “buying” miles for the cost of the annual fee which is $95. This offer now includes a Companion Certificate as part of the sign-up bonus. You can also apply for a 75,000 mile offer on the business card, though it requires spending $1,000 and doesn’t offer the Companion Certificate.

Hilton Honors Aspire from American Express
Hilton Aspire
  • 150,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first three months
  • $450 annual fee

I recently picked up this card since the benefits really offset the annual fee. You get a free award night certificate upon signing up for the card and another on your account anniversary. You also get an annual $250 Hilton resort credit, free Diamond status, and an annual $250 airline fee credit.

Chase Ink Business Unlimited
Chase Ink Unlimited
  • 50,000 points after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months
  • No annual fee

There’s a new Chase Ink card in town and it looks a lot like the Chase Freedom Unlimited. You can earn unlimited 1.5x points (or cash back) on all purchases with this card. This is a good choice if the bonus categories from Chase Ink Cash or Preferred don’t work for you. The sign-up bonus also makes this card an obvious choice.

Chase Ink Business Cash
  • 50,000 points after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months
  • No annual fee

This is the best bonus we’ve seen on this card. It’s a great deal considering there is no annual fee. The bonus is technically $500 cash back, but you can use the points as Chase Ultimate Rewards points if you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Reserve, or Chase Ink Preferred. You’ll earn 5x points on the first $25,000 spent in combined purchases at office supply stores and on internet, cable, and phone services as well as 2x points on the first $25,000 spent in combined purchases at gas stations and restaurants.

Chase Ink Business Preferred
Chase Ink Preferred
  • 80,000 points after spending $5,000 in the first 3 months
  • $95 annual fee

This is currently Chase’s highest bonus on a card that earns Chase Ultimate Rewards points. Points are worth 1.25x when redeemed on Chase’s portal. You can also transfer to Chase’s travel partners at a 1:1 ratio. You’ll earn 3x points on travel purchases and business-related expenses like shipping purchases, Internet, cable and phone services, and social media/online advertising. Might as well pay some bills with this card!

Chase Sapphire Reserve
Chase Sapphire Reserve
  • 50,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first 3 months
  • $450 annual fee

While the sign-up bonus is smaller, Chase Sapphire Reserve is still one of the best cards around for its travel protection benefits. I still think it’s worth getting this card for the 50,000 point sign-up bonus and possibly keeping it since the annual fee is only $150 if you deduct the $300 travel credit. The rules on Chase Sapphire cards are now pretty strict, so make sure you are eligible before signing up.

Citi Premier
citi thankyou premier
  • 50,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first 3 months
  • $95 annual fee, waived first year

The sign-up bonus comes and goes on this card so get it while you can! In addition to the bonus, you’ll earn 3x points on travel and 2x on dining out and entertainment. Points can be transferred to airlines including Singapore Airlines and JetBlue.

Capital One Venture Card
Capital One Venture
  • 50,000 points after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months
  • $95 annual fee, waived first year

This is a slightly higher offer on the Capital One Venture card. What makes the offer so exciting is that Capital One recently introduced transfer partners like Air France/KLM and Emirates. This card also comes with a Global Fee or TSA PreCheck credit.

Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite Mastercard
Barclaycard Arrival Plus
  • 70,000 points after spending $5,000 in the first 90 days
  • $89 annual fee, waived first year

While this card has some stiff competition with the Capital One Venture card, this is the highest bonus ever on this card so it’s worth getting if you are eligible.
