80k points for $3k spend from Amex's Hilton HHonors Surpass card if you're interested in that.

Chase Marriott Premier sounds look a good deal too. You get 50k points for $1k spend on that one. Really depends on what you're looking to get specifically. I myself am almost done with a $3k spend offer on my Ritz card. Hotel points, airline miles, etc?

For the easiest sign up bonus out there, Barclays has the US Airways Premier card where you don't even have to spend much to get the 50k miles. You just pay the AF and make a purchase and you're done.
Macy's TLs (21k), Lowes (17k), CSP (10k), Sam's Club (10k), Nordstrom (5k), AARP (4.2k), Freedom (3k), Discover (1.5k), Quicksilver (2k), BoA (3k), Barclaycard Arrival (2.5k), Amazon Store (6k), Paypal (4.9k), Sam's Club MC (3.6k), Walmart MC (1.2k)

It's whatever points work best for you. Since your post explains absolutely nothing, there isn't much to say.

What's the charge for? For example, if you're buying plane tickets, you might consider a card that gets you extra points on travel expenses. That way, you knock out the spending requirement and get extra points on the purchase itself.

Of course, the giant caveat is that you need to make sure the card earns rewards you'll actually use. For example, if you'll never use travel rewards in the future, earning double rewards on that purchase won't do you much good.

-Capital One Quicksilver
-Barclaycard Arrival (no AF)
- US Bank (no rewards)
