While this isn’t some mega, 100,000 mile sign-up bonus, the days for Continental credit cards are numbered, given that frequent flyer programs will be merged in about a year. Because I expect the card to go away, I actually signed up for the Chase Continental OnePass credit card last month. While the sign-up bonus was only 25,000 miles after the first purchase and another 5,000 miles for adding an authorized user, I still figured it was worthwhile.
Well, they’ve upped the sign-up bonus. While the mileage component is the same, they now include a $50 statement credit, and (as before) the first year’s annual fee is waived.
Again, it’s not the most amazing sign-up bonus in the world, but I figured the Hyatt and Priority Club Chase credit cards can wait, since those aren’t going anywhere.
