So send your SSN via email to that person? That doesn’t seem secure.

You can walk into any branch and sign up for it. Or call the branch and give them the info if you want.

What is the value of CNB’s 100K points? And where can be spent?

Thank you!

The value of the points vary depending on how you redeem them, but are normally just under $.01 each. You can find out more about the program at this link:

I believe you can call them with more specific valuation questions. Unfortunately they don’t make this information very easy to find.

Tempted…

I don’t like the email thing to some person…I may look for a fax number or snail mail address to the bank. I just got home from a trip to California…we could have walked in. Ugh.

All: please hold off on applying. It turns out that the bank might not honor this deal after all. I’m still waiting for clarity before I post anything definitive.

Thanks for the post.

Will wait to hear if offer is valid but if it is…

I just applied for a few cards on the first of August.
How long do I have to wait to apply?

Greg The Frequent Miler
Admin

You don’t HAVE to wait at all. People have found, though, that waiting 91 days or more is often helpful because then the weight of the prior applications is less.

I just got approved with $25k CL and 100k point bonus. I visited a branch and applied in branch. They have flyers for it at the branch so the deal is still good, but I don’t know if you can apply online.

This is one of the few deals where you can use points for a cruise. A balcony cruise for one person shows for about 135,000 points and the cruise is probably $1200, therefore that is right around $.01

You get about 3x points on most things I spend on. Wouldn’t take much to get that free cruise.
