Big Credit Card Bonuses For Those With Good Credit

From TheStreet:
Sometimes, it really does pay to do the right thing. Those who kept their credit profiles squeaky clean during the Great Recession and its aftermath can now dance with the best credit card issuers.

I'm afraid doing the right thing hasn't paid off for savers who avoided debt. We're being punished by the ultra low interest rates. At least we can profit a little from the big banks by taking advantage of credit card deals.

I've reviewed two of the top bonuses mentioned in the article. These bonuses have values of between $500 and $800:

Recently I've also seen (and taken advantage of) balance transfer offers that are too good to let pass. 0% for 9-12 months with 1% transaction fee (3 different Chase cards I own). Remember the days when credit card companies offered a 3% transaction fee capped at $50 to 100 or so? Those days have still to return, but 1% is actually pretty good.
