The figures above may help you during your comparison as a benchmark to assess how competitive different card options are.
When you’re comparing credit cards with six-figure bulk sum points on sign up, you’ll typically find that they come with higher interest rates and/or fees than average. These help to cover the cost of rewards programs.
Further, the cards may also come with higher minimum spending limits than other options as it is expected that those applying can afford these higher costs. Credit cards with large bonus points on sign up tend to be premium card offerings for those with higher incomes.
If higher than average interest rates and fees doesn’t suit your budget, consider comparing some of the lower rate and fee credit card options available.
