UPDATE: We've updated this post to reflect the latest offers available on the cards listed.
The offer on The Hyatt Credit Card has expired and the card is no longer open to applications. You can find all the details for the new Hyatt co-brand card in our dedicated review.
Increased and limited time sign up bonuses come and go. While nothing is written in stone there are patterns where Spring brings blooming offers and cool down over the summer. When back from Summer vacation, things pick up again before the Holiday rush.
With so many card offers changing, we wanted to showcase some of the signup bonuses these cards now offer.
Easy Southwest Companion Pass
The cards are subject to Chase’s 5/24 policy so won't be an option for lots of folks. But for those that qualify, applying for any combination of business and personal Southwest cards, and meeting the minimum spend, will land you very close to a companion pass.

Hyatt Card Signup Bonus Changing from 2 Free Nights to 40K
UPDATE: The bonus on the Hyatt Card has now changed from 2 free nights to 40,000 points.
Chase has announced changes to its popular Hyatt Card, revealing the unrestricted 2 free nights for new cardholders will change to 40,000 World of Hyatt points for applications received after June 29, 2017. It’s a blow for anyone planning to redeem free night certificates at top-tier properties like the Andaz Maui which typically costs 25,000 points per night. However, for World of Hyatt members planning stays at lower-tier Hyatt properties, the new signup bonus may work better. Either way, Thursday is the last chance to secure two unrestricted free nights via the Hyatt Card.
British Airways Visa Offering Bonus Avios
Another card enjoying a resurgence in interest thanks to a mammoth signup bonus is the British Airways Visa Signature® Card. A higher spending requirement than some of its compatriot cards to earn the full welcome offer, the British Airways Visa Card is a great option if you have large expenses in non-bonus categories.
The signup bonus is offered as bonus points on all purchases up to a set spending threshold, with 12 months to earn the full bonus. Don't forget to check out some BA Avios Sweet Spot Awards.
- British Airways Visa Signature® Card – Earn 4 Avios for every $1 spent on all purchases within your first year up to $30,000. That's up to 120,000 bonus Avios
As we tick over the end of June and launch into the second half of the year, multiple Chase and Amex offers are coming to an end and this may be your last chance to pick up these increased signup bonuses for the foreseeable future.
The signup bonuses across the Southwest co-brand cards are definitely worth running the numbers on. For a low minimum spend of just $3/5K, you could put yourself within a few thousand points of one of the best perks in the points and miles game in the Southwest Companion Pass.
