Top Credit Card Deals For April

The Chase Freedom Visa “$200 Bonus Cash Back” offer remains one of the most popular credit card deals in our comparison portal at the start of April. Click here to see the offer or compare with other credit cards. There is no annual fee and the cash back eligibility threshold is quite simple to meet: “Earn $200 Bonus Cash Back after you make $500 in purchases in your first 3 months.”

If you charge just $167 or so in purchases to the card for three months, you’ll hit the threshold and receive the $200 bonus cash back. Pretty good deal, in our view (Chase Freedom Visa has a 5-star editor’s rating from Outlaw).

Another great featured card deal for April is the Discover More Card. The particular offer featured in our deals portal provides a full 15-months of 0% introductory APR, on your purchases and balance transfers, for qualified cardholders.

If you’d prefer a shiny new airline rewards card for your Spring travels, Southwest Airlines’ Rapid Rewards Plus Credit Card is definitely worth looking into.

You’ll earn a free roundtrip flight (domestic; U.S.) after your first purchase on the card, plus 2 Rapid Rewards points on every $1 spent on Southwest Airlines purchases, and 1 Rapid Rewards point on each $1 spent everywhere else. I’d value the roundtrip flight at approximately $200.

To access this airline credit card deal, go to Outlaw‘s deal sorter and select “Miles/Points” cards. The card has a $69 annual fee.

Finally, another popular option for frequent air travellers is United Airlines’ MileagePlus Explorer credit card. The $95 annual fee is waived the first year, and you can earn up to 40,000 Bonus Miles. More details here. I’d value the bonus miles at between $200 and $400, roughly.

(Although I’m no longer as closely involved with Outlaw, I still play an advisory role there. Every month I post an updated list of recommended card deals and bank sign-up promotions.)
