Credit Card Bonus Offers

You can earn several hundred dollars worth of sign up bonuses by applying for a new credit card - free hotel stays, free flights, and even good old cash.

However, beware that new credit inquiries negatively affect your credit score for about 6 months, and applying for a new credit card counts as a credit inquiry. Therefore, if you plan on applying for a loan or home mortgage in the coming months, we'd advise against opening new lines of credit in the interim.
