It looks like there's at least two signup bonuses for TY Preferred. The current promo is 10k TY points and 1x points on everything, and the one cashback shared, with 6k TY points and 5x points on gas, groceries and drugstores for 12 months.

Just got a targeted offer on my Simplicity. 5% back on everything up to $500 spending. They did this last quarter too. It's not a lot but I'll take a free $25 every quarter.
