Blah, still no luck.

Got an email and mailing for the 35K points sign up in the past week. Was really hoping for a 50K before year end.

I'm so tired of checking here and finding nothing new.

I've just about finished my spend for enough LH miles for a FC TATL award. But have been hoping to get a card for DW, as she will be so upset if I fly LH FC and don't take her along.

If someone comes across a new 50K offer, please PM me.

How often can you apply/get the sign on bonus? Is it like the old US Airways card where you can essentially get a new one along with the sign on bonus every six months?

Hmmm... If so, that might solve the dilemma of not having the 50K offer recur. Anyone have any data points on this?

Its churnable but dont know the time frame. I just churned this for my wife. She had it, closed it and the account showed in her barclays account for 6 months after closure. When it fell of her Barclays account she reapplied and got approved. She also has the AA aviator card with them so I played it slow. But the 55k bonusfrom last yr and 35 this yr is enough for LH F to Europe if u dont mind the taxes.

Thanks for letting us know. I got the 55K offer the last time it came out, but that didn't fit in DW's churn cycle, and then it disappeared sooner than we expected. We didn't worry, since it had been recurring every few months. Very frustrating that it hasn't been back in so long.

Good to know it is churnable. Now the only dilemma is the fear that the day after we pull the trigger for just 35K, they bring back the 55K offer.

How long did she have it open before closing it? When the AF hit, or sooner?

I believe around 10-12 months.

Thank you. It's been almost three years since we last did this, so definitely time to repeat for 110,000 rather easy M&M miles.
