Hello everyone! Thank you again for how helpful and welcoming everyone has been. I have not applied for a new credit card in several years, largely because I never wanted it to negatively affect my credit score. Recently though, due in part to a devaluation by my current rewards card, I've been looking to add a new card to my wallet to serve as my primary card. Through reading and participating in this forum, I'm close to making a final decision and will likely go with the Club Carlson card because my goal is to maximize the number of free hotel stays I earn each year, and their award night bonus seems incredible. Before proceeding, I'm curious to hear any thoughts you can share on two topics: (1) Timing of New Sign-up Bonuses Do new sign-up bonuses tend to happen seasonally or just randomly during the year? I've read about some amazing sign-up bonuses in the past 1-2 years, such as the Capital One Venture 100,000 miles bonus. It appears that was announced in March of 2011 and March of 2012. Since you're all much more experienced than I am with this, I'm wondering if there are particular seasons when cards typically announce new sign-up bonuses. I don't want to apply for a card now and then find that two weeks from now some amazing sign-up bonus gets announced. I'm sure that's always a possibility, but I'm just curious to hear any wisdom you can share on whether there are particular seasons when sign-up bonuses are launched. (2) Resource to Track Newly Announced Sign-up Bonuses On a similar note, I've been looking for a website, blog, or app that lists the latest new sign-up bonuses. Does anyone have a go-to, one-stop resource that lists the best new sign-up bonuses as they're announced? Thanks very much!
