I have to admit, many times I do not earn my annual spend bonuses on my cards because I am focused on using my other credit cards for 1. sign up bonuses and 2. bonus points on every day purchases. I think I should be taking advantage of these spend bonuses and will try harder. Most of these spend bonuses are based on a calendar year, so it’s best to formulate a plan in December for the following year.
Here are some of the cards that have annual spend bonuses that you may consider:
Loyalty annual bonus miles are earned in addition to the 2X miles you earn on every purchase. You can earn loyalty bonuses up to 25,000 miles each year based on your spend. For example, if you spend $15,000 on purchases, you get 15,000 bonus miles. If you spend an additional $10,000 on purchases, you will get an additional 10,000 miles, for a total of 25,000 miles after $25,000 spent on purchases. Note, this card is no longer available to new card members.
If in any calendar year, if you spend $25,000 or more on the American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Card, you will be awarded 10,000 bonus SkyMiles and 10,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) and if in that same calendar year you spend $50,000 or more, you will be awarded an additional 10,000 bonus SkyMiles and 10,000 MQMs.
If in any calendar year, if you spend $30,000 or more on the Delta Reserve Credit Card From American Express, you will be awarded 15,000 bonus SkyMiles and 15,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) and if in that same calendar year you spend $60,000 or more, you will be awarded an additional 15,000 bonus SkyMiles and 15,000 MQMs.
