Credit Card Sign-Ups
A lot of my recent travel is funded through miles and points obtained from US-based credit card sign-up bonuses, as detailed in the Miles&Points tab. Here are some of my personal referral links, where I will get a bonus from referring you. I am not always up-to-date about the best public bonus available, but have disclosed the better public offers out there.
Chase Ink Preferred: You get 80,000 UR (worth $800 in cash, or $1000 in travel if you use their travel portal) after you spend $5000 in 3 months.
I get 20,000 UR if you use my link.
Chase Sapphire Preferred: You get 50,000 UR (+5,000 UR after you add an authorized user, worth $550 in cash, or $687.50 in travel if you use their travel portal) after you spend $4000 in 3 months.
I get 10,000 UR if you use my link.
Chase World of Hyatt Card: You get 40,000 Hyatt points after you spend $3000 in 3 months, and an additional 20,000 Hyatt points after you spend an additional $3000 in 6 months. You also get an annual free night at Hyatt with this card for a Hyatt property up to category 4.

You also get an anniversary night, which you can redeem for properties costing up to 40,000 IHG points. This is not the highest public offer. The current highest offer is 100,000 points after you spend $3000 in 3 months.
I get 10,000 IHG points if you use my link.
Amex Gold Delta Skymiles Business Credit Card: You get 60,000 Delta Skymiles after you spend $3000 in 4 months. This is higher than public offers, and only available via referrals.
I get 10,000 Delta Skymiles if you use my link.
Amex SPG Business Card: You get 100,000 SPG points after spending $5000 in 3 months.
I get 20,000 SPG points if you use my link.
Amex Hilton Honors Card: You get 100,000 Hilton Honors points after spending $1000 in 3 months. This is not the highest offer. Make a dummy booking on the Hilton website to pull a 75,000 Hilton Honors points + $50 in statement credits.
I get 10,000 Hilton Honors points if you use my link.
Amex Everyday Credit Card: You get 15,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $1000 in 3 months. This is not the highest offer. You can use an incognito browser to try and pull a 25,000 MR offer.
I get 10,000 Membership Rewards if you use my link.
Discover IT: This is a cashback credit card with no annual fee and no foreign transaction fee. You get up to 5% in cashback. You get $50 in statement credit after your first purchase, which will be doubled at the end of the first year (along with all other cashback). This sign-up bonus is not available in public, and only available through referrals.
I get $50 in statement credit if you use my link.
Airbnb: Home-sharing accommodation that’s a competitor to the hotel industry. You get $40 for your first stay over $75, and I get $20.
Grab: The ride share service in Southeast Asia that acquired Uber. It’s available in a lot of countries in Southeast Asia, like Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. In most of these countries, it’s generally cheaper than taxis, and you won’t have to deal with taxi scams. In Singapore, it’s generally a good deal FROM the airport, because you won’t have to pay the ex-airport taxi surcharge. In Singapore, it might sometimes be more expensive than taxis, because of surge surcharges – take a cab when it rains, you’re more likely to pay less than Grab.
My referral code is: Solewalker (I honestly don’t know how much you or I get, as it’s rather unclear, but some free credit is better than no free credits, yes?)
Topcashback: When you click around on websites for online shopping (be it buying clothes or booking hotels) using Google (or any other search engines) and click through, the referring engine gets a commission for the referral. Sites like Topcashback split some of the revenue with you. There are other sites out there like Ebates, which sometimes offer higher rates than Topcashback, but I generally use Topcashback for simplicity. Also, it has no minimum requirements for cash out. You can cash out via Paypal.
I get $10 when you sign up using my referral.
Google Project Fi: I use Google’s Project Fi for data roaming when I’m traveling. It’s available in 140+ territories, and you pay a flat rate of $10/GB, capped at $60 a month if you’re a heavy user. It’s pro-rated, so last month, I roamed for 0.1 GB, and paid $1.
You get $20 off your bill after you use the service for more than 30 days, and I get $20 in Project Fi credits as well.
Coinbase: If you are interested in buying Bitcoin, this is one of the more reliable (and larger) sites for buying Bitcoin.
We both get an extra $10 worth of Bitcoin (at market rate) when you buy $100 worth of Bitcoin. You won’t get bonus Bitcoin if you don’t use a referral.
Binance: The largest (and reliable) market for trading altcoins. You get a % off trading fees (that you otherwise wouldn’t get if you didn’t use a referral), and I get a commission for your trading activities as well.
