We’ve previously seen a 60,000 offer that only required $6,000 in total spend, whereas this new offer requires $15,000. Even the targeted 70,000 offer only required $10,000 total spend. Personally I think the spend requirement is too high as the standard offer is 50,000 points requires only $6,000 in total spend. This is an extra 10,000 points but requires an extra $9,000 in spend, so you’re only really getting an extra 1 point per $1 spent.
The spend requirement doesn’t matter for those that chase the free night certificate after spending $15,000 in a cardmember year as obviously you’d already be spending $15,000 anyway. Because of that reason I will add this to the best credit card bonuses, but this bonus obviously isn’t for everybody.
