Can you get a credit card bonus twice?

Postby jasonyhsu » Sat Sep 10, 2011 12:23 pm

Recently I saw a high offer for cash back on Chase Freedom but I already have the card. Can I apply for it again? or is there anyway else I can do to have the $250 cash back rewards?

No If you have it, you have it. Now if you cancel it, let's say after a few years you want the card again, then that's different.

You can look at Citibank and apply for 1 of their cards. they may have offers of 25,000 points. Bank of America, American Express Gold rewards offers this, plus 1 year free annual fee to see if you like the card. Also Chase Priority Pass offers something.

It's been known to happen with Amex before, but it shouldn't have. Generally you can't get the bonus twice for the same credit card, regardless of issuer.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred

No you can't, at least not for me. I had a Gold card before and tried getting another but the bonus didn't come with it. Too bad.
