Barclay Credit card is offering a brand new sign up bonus, which might make you consider signing up for a Barclay card. The offer is 50,000 Hawaiian Airline miles if you spend just $1000 with in 90 days of opening the credit card up. Seems they have taken a hint from American Express, who is offering a similar bonus, but the Amex bonus is only worth 25,000 points. This makes this offer pretty amazing, since most sign up bonuses require you to spend $3000 or higher in order to receive the sign up bonus.
To get this offer simply make an account your Hawaiian Airlines account, or if you do not have such an account, create one. Once logged in to you “my account” and scroll downwards, you should see the offer there. This offer is only available until December 30th of 2015, so if this interests you, I would advise not putting it off to much longer, as this is an amazing deal, but is not likely to be around in 2016, 50,000 points for only having to spend $1000. You can likely meet the 1k goal with simple gas pump fill ups and grocery shopping, and maybe a night or two out at your favorite restaurant per month. This offer is a sweet for anyone planing a trip to Hawaii.
The down side to this offer is that there is an annual fee, and it is totally not waived for the first year, as many credit cards do. This annual fee is $89. You earn x2 the miles on any Hawaiian Airlines purchase, and only 1x the miles on everything else. You do however have the ability to share your miles with friends, and you also get discounted award travel, which is a nice perk. To sweeten the pot, they offer a $100 companion discount off of one coach companion round trip ticket, good for fare between North America and Hawaii, once per year on your card holder anniversary. Also any year that you have made $10,000 in purchases you earn an additional 5000 bonus miles.
This card is really only useful for those who make use of Hawaiian Airlines, or who might want to plan a trip to Hawaii. If you are not interested in any of those things, I would suggest going to the Amex Gold offer or the Amex Green offer, or even both, they each give you 25,000 points for spending only $1000 within the first 90 days of opening up the account. I should however point out this cards standard offer is only 35,000 bonus miles as a sign up, so this offer of 50,000 miles is a special offer over their standard 35k offer.
