For flexible travel rewards, MBNA offers 2 different credit cards – the and the .

Both offer high earnings in the MBNA Rewards program, and you can choose between no fee or a more premium experience.

And from now until February 29, 2020, the welcome offers have been increased, giving you even more reason to take the plunge on either card.

Note: These new sign-up offers are not available to residents of Quebec.

MBNA Rewards Platinum Plus Mastercard

Let’s start with the no fee version – the , one of our top no fee travel cards.

Previously, the sign-up offer was 5,000 points after your first purchase, and another 5,000 points when you signed-up for e-statements within 90 days.

There’s one minor change to this – instead of getting 5,000 points after your first purchase, you need to spend $500 in the first 3 months of having the card. Signing up for e-statements still gives you the same bonus.

But there’s also a new addition to this offer.

Now you can also earn 4 points per $1 in the first 3 months on gas, groceries, and restaurant purchases. That’s double what you’d normally earn on these purchases.

MBNA Rewards World Elite Mastercard

The is the premium version of this card – and it’s getting an increased sign-up offer too.

The previous offer was 15,000 points after the first purchase, and another 5,000 points after signing up for e-statements within 90 days.

Both parts are increased as part of the new offers.

You’ll now earn 20,000 points after spending $2,000 in the first 3 months, and another 10,000 points after signing up for e-statements within 90 days.

And while it’s a little harder to earn, that’s a 50% increase over the old welcome bonus.

In summary

Both of these increased offers have no downsides, except being a bit harder to earn. But that’s more than made up for by the extra points you’ll get.

So in the end, you’ll get more points for signing up while still getting the same great benefits for both cards.
