Santander is offering a publuc $100 sign-up bonus for their Bravo Mastercard. The card has decent earning rates. The bonus comes in the form of a $100 statement credit when you spend $1,000 on new net retail purchases with your card during the first 90 days after account opening.
Santander Bravo Mastercard has decent earning rates. You will earn 3x rewards points on supermarket, gas station, and restaurant purchases, up to 15,000 points per calendar quarter, or $150. You will earn 1x point on everything else. You can usually do better at gas and supermarkets with other cards, but 3X back at restaurants is pretty good. You can redeem points for travel, gift cards, or cash back via statement credit. Each points is worth 1 cent.
The card also comes with 18 months of 0% Introductory Annual Percentage Rate (APR) financing on balances transferred from another card within the first 90 days after you open the account. There’s a transaction fee for each balance transfer of either $10 or 3%, whichever is greater.
There’s an annual fee of $49 that will be waived for the first year. Fee is also waived for customers who maintain a Santander Select or Santander Premier Plus Checking account or if you are qualified for a Santander Bank employee checking account at each anniversary date.
I believe this is the highest public offer, but there’s been 30,000 point targeted offers in the past. A $300 sign up bonus would make sense on this card, but for just $100 I would stay away. Unless you’ve already exhausted all other options. The best feature of the card is the the 3% rate on dining.
