Master List of Retention Offers

Update: Every table will display the latest update at the bottom, or description, of the table.

Flyertalk has a lot of data points on retention offers, the only problem is that it’s a pain to read. I took those data points and compiled them into an easier to read table that shows what different offers the bank(s) have given and how many people received them. If you have any data points to add, please do in the comments.

  1. Austin Adventuress · Reply ¬

    Excellent compilation! Thank you for doing this. It would be great if you could update and post every 3-4 months. It’s so much easier to use than going to FlyerTalk…..

    1. Glad you like it! I plan on updating it as I find more datapoints. I have website monitors set up on all 4 Flyertalk pages, so if anyone adds new information, I’ll update the tables.

  2. Thanks. This is very useful. Please keep updating it.

  3. Yeah, this is really good. You are in! For Free 🙂

  4. Thanks for this. My suggestion would be to show the latest date of when someone stated they got a certain retention offer. Maybe useful.

    1. Good idea, Pat. I’ll integrate that idea when I get a chance.

  5. Very nice post, thank you.

    Cheers,

    PedroNY

    1. Thank you for your post! I never knew I could get so many retention bonuses.

  6. Amex platinum. 25,000 miles. 11/14

  7. Chase BA: Just offered 9,000 avios after 1.5k spend in first 3mo.

  8. Got today jan 30 for Barclays frontier air $59 annual fee waived

  9. 2/4/2015 Barclays USAir card $89 annual waived.

  10. Thank you SO much for doing this. Adding my datapoints for today (2/5/15):
    Chase Ink Plus: 10k points for $5k spend in 3 months
    Chase Hyatt: 2500 points (would really like to know how some got 5000 points!)

    1. Thanks for the data points. They are added.

  11. Citi AAdvantage Executive card – called today and was told no offers for me (I also only did the spending bonus in one purchase last year and then one $200 purchase last month, never used it otherwise) 🙁

    1. Sad day 🙁 Thanks for the data though!

  12. Pingback: Sapphire Isn't as Pretty as It Seems - frugalhack.mefrugalhack.me

  13. Pingback: Best of the Blog - frugalhack.mefrugalhack.me

  14. Data points for today:
    Chase Ink Plus – 10k points for $5k spend in 90 days (starting next week)
    Chase Ink Bold – 10k points for $5k spend in 90 days (starting next week)

  15. I got 2 offers for AA Exec, one of which you already got, but I don’t think you have the other one!

    1. Statement credit of $100 + 5000 AA miles for spending $1500/month for 3 months

    2. Statement credit of $50 PER MONTH for spending $1500/month for 7 months (total of $350 in statement credits + earn miles as usual)

    1. To clarify, those offers were from today, and they start 1 business day after accepting the offer. 🙂

  16. I just got a retention offer for my Citi Thank You Preferred. 6/3/15

    4X bonus points (added to category points) for 3 months. Up to 35K points.
    No min spend

    1. I forgot to mention the other offers for me on the Preferred card were 10K points for $3K spend or 2K points for $200 spend

  17. Citi AA Exec:
    – 5000 miles and $100 statement credit after $1.5k every month for 3 months
    – 15k miles after $500 spend in 3 months
    – $50/mo after $1500 spend each month for 7 months

    I almost took the last one but cancelled it. I’d rather spend $1500/mo elsewhere.

    Citi Forward:
    – 15K points for $4500 spend over 6 months

    Citi Premier:
    – 5K points for $1k spend over 6 months

    Citi Prestige:
    – $200 after $4k each month for 3 months
    – additional 4x at supermarkets, drugstores, .. for 6 months, up to a max of 50k additional points.
    I obviously took the second one

    Citi AT&T:
    – 10k after $3k over 6 months

    Citi Dividend:
    +2% cash back over 6 months, $300 max
    (He initially didn’t mention the $300 max so I got super excited for about 1 minute until he spelled out the details)

    1. Added. Thanks for the detailed info!

  18. Citi Prestige:
    Additional 4x TYP at supermarkets, drugstores, and gas stations for 6 months up to 50k TYP
