I am looking to apply for the AGR Platinum Card (the one without the annual fee). It offers 12,000 bonus points if you make $1,000 in purchases within the first 90 days. Do they ever run specials that increase the bonus points? If so, is there any cadence to when they do so?

I know that the other card (the one with the annual fee) has a 20,000 points bonus, but I am not interested in that card.

Thanks!

I recall this time last year, BofA had a special for 2 points per dollar (vs the usual one point) for any shopping. Timed for Christmas shopping of course.
Two points for travel and three points for Amtrak remained the same.
Haven't seen that this year.

You could get the top card (as I did) for a year then apply for the other one then drop the top card.
