The account opening bonus is 5000 miles, the personal card comes with a $75 annual fee and the business version of the card comes with a $120 annual fee.
Debit cards don’t earn back nearly the revenue that credit cards do, and most programs have dropped their mileage-earning debit cards altogether. The personal version of this card continues to earn one mile per dollar spent.
Back in May there was a 30,000 point signup bonus. It’s hard to imagine that repeats and really did look like a sign of desperation on Suntrust’s part in order to attract deposits after failing stress tests.
I’m just happy to see the debit card option remain, since it’s less expensive to make certain kinds of payments like taxes with a debit card and through this card it’s still possible to earn miles.
