Suck My Click and Pimp My Link

Please excuse the following rant, but the gargantuan amount of credit card affiliate links (e.g. you click my link - I make commission) being pushed down readers (deep) throats on travel blogs has surely reached critical mass. If the links were better than the standard bonus offers available elsewhere I wouldn't mind so much. However on a regular basis, they are worse (far worse) than what you can find via a simple google search or a quick browse on the Frequent Flyer forums (flyertalk, milepoint etc).

I feel somewhat left out of all the bling bling linky hype and buzz since I haven't pimped my blog with lucrative offers (to line my own pocket), so without further ado here are my links from my own recent credit card app-o-rama (btw I was approved for each credit card instantly - YMMV)

(Disclaimer: I make zero commission i.e. nada if you click on these links, which I found via google, so click away and rest assured, you ARE getting a better deal than most of the affiliate linky blogs out there (with zero annual fee for the 1st year), but if you have more money than sense, I can cut you a deal on the Brooklyn Bridge for a 50% discount ;-)


Chase - British Airways (Personal) 50K Avios points after $2K spend within 3 months - $95 Annual fee waived 1st year

Citi - American Airlines (Personal) 50K miles after $3K spend within 3 months  - $95 Annual fee waived 1st year

Citi - American Airlines (Business) 50K miles after $3K spend within 3 months  - $95 Annual fee waived 1st year

Barclays - US Airways (Personal) 35K miles after $1 spend - $89 Annual fee waived 1st year

I agree the affiliate links are OTT right now - nice to see someone offering something for nothing!

@Trye Dat: I said 50% off the bridge - not for nothing! ;-p

Can I apply to all the links you supplied at the same time?

Depends on your credit score and who you have cards with already - I always recommend you research credit card applications before clicking - Don't apply if your credit score is low or if you can't make the required spend easily
