Continental OnePass Plus Chase Mastercard- 30,000 Point Sign-Up + $50 Statement Credit

This post contains references to products from one or more of our advertisers. We may receive compensation when you click on links to those products. For an explanation of our Advertising Policy, visit this page.

UPDATE: Continental Airlines is now part of United and the Delta and American Airlines deals are no longer available.

While not as lucrative as some of the 45,000 (Delta) -100,000 (AA) point deals currently being offered, 30,000 isn’t bad, especially since the fee is waived for the first year. Combine this offer with your personal and business Chase Debit cards (25,000 for each) and you have enough for an award ticket to Australia (80,000) for a whopping $80.

Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

The Points Guy Assessment:

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is a great pick for the beginner and the frequent traveler. The CSP has superb travel benefits, double points on certain purchases, and a 50,000 point sign up bonus. The $95 annual fee is waived the first year so this puts it as one of the less expensive cards, while still allowing you to earn one of the most valuable point currencies.
