PRG 50K/$1K is back!

Postby PhillyPhoto » Fri Jul 10, 2015 1:18 pm

After the AF change last month they dropped the big sign-up bonus (I think it went down to 40K/$2K), but it looks like it's back!

"Earn 50,000 Points after you spend $1,000 on purchases on your new card in your first 3 months."

My green AF doesn't kick in until after the first year, and I had planned on gardening, but I couldn't pass this one up. The only thing I'm hoping they overlook is that I'm already a customer, but I didn't get any kind of bonus with my green card. If they don't give me the bonus, I'll just cancel the card.

Do you have a link for this offer? All I see is the 25K offer at Amex website. Thanks!

They just sent my wife a 50k for $1k offer in the mail. On our flight out of Montreal you couldn't get away from PRG ads and offers. Give it time, and you will be forced to see it.
Chase Freedom $9k~~Chase Sapphire Preferred $6.5k~~Amex Blue Cash Preferred $12.4k~~Citi Double Cash $4.7k

Are you a cardholder and you received it as a targeted offer? Or was it an invitation to apply for the card?
