The Crystal Visa Infinite Credit Card from City National Bank will give you 100,000 bonus points after spending $5,000 within the first 90 days, plus the $400 annual fee is waived for the first year.
The 100,000 bonus points can be used at a ratio of 1 cent per 1 point to book airline tickets, hotel stays, and more, so that’s the equivalent of a $1,000 bonus.
Crystal Visa Infinite Credit Card Application Process
In order to apply for this credit card, you must fill out the downloaded Application Form and email it to Michael Thomas – Senior Relationship Banker (Michael.Thomas@cnb.com), including the completed application as well as your income verification, such as your W2 or tax return.
This is a bit more of a hassle than simply completing an online application, and the requirements may be a little more strict than your average credit card application, since they are being reviewed personally.
This application is for use until November 23, 2015, and after November 23, 2015, you must use the Personal Credit Card Application form, but it will probably be too late to qualify for the bonus points.
That’s because you must allow at least 7 days for processing your application request.
If additional information is needed, the processing of your application may take longer and delay the opening of your account.
If your account is opened after November 30, 2015, your account will not qualify for the 100,000 bonus points offer.
If you are approved for the Crystal Visa Infinite Card, to qualify and receive the 100,000 bonus points, your account must be opened between October 1, 2015, and November 30, 2015, and you must make net new purchases totaling $5,000 or more, which are posted to your account during the first 90 days following the date of account opening.
After qualifying, you must allow 4 to 6 weeks for the bonus points to be credited to your City National Rewards account.
The Crystal Visa Infinite Credit Card is offered in City National Bank offices in the states of California, Georgia, Nevada, New York, and Tennessee, but it looks like this offer may be available nationally to anybody in the U.S. who submits an application as described above.
I already applied for the card this afternoon and here is the reply from Michael –
