Discover It $150 Signup Bonus Has Expired, Open Chase Freedom Quickly

This past month, Chase and Discover went head-to-head competing fiercely in the no annual fee credit card space. My guess is that with Black Friday and the holiday shopping season around the corner, both banks wanted to win as much market share as they could. As I mentioned, Discover It started offering a $150 signup bonus while Chase Freedom started offering a $200 or 20,000 Ultimate Rewards points signup bonus. These signup bonuses are among the highest ever for those two cards, and we knew it was for a limited time only.   Open Chase Freedom Now that Black Friday is over, it seems the end of these limited time promotions is here, because the Discover It credit card no longer offers  a $150 signup bonus. The Chase Freedom credit card, however, is still offering the special $200 or 20,000 Ultimate Rewards points signup bonus.

Guide to Opening Credit Cards for Rewards

Credit card signup bonuses are larger than ever these days, and you’ll see that I recently added a top credit card bonuses tab at the top of the site. I constantly update this page with the best credit card rewards. When you go to that page, you’ll see offers for 40,000 miles, two free nights at high-end hotels, and even 50,000+ points after spending a certain amount of money on the card. It’s as if the credit card companies want you to have free money and travel for close to nothing!     Of course, some caveats do exist. The spending requirement for these signup bonuses are higher than ever, although that should not be a problem if you are paying for a wedding. In addition, it’s never been easier to meet these spending requirements without actually spending any money through methods, such as Amazon Payments. More importantly, however, you must be financially responsible, organized, and pay attention to details. This last point is probably what scares most beginners...
