CNB Crystal Visa Infinite Card, 50K Bonus is Back
City National Bank is offering a 50,000 points bonus for their Crystal Visa Infinite Card. To get the bonus you must spend $5,000 in the first 90 days. These points are worth 1 cent when used for travel so that makes the bonus worth $500. The card has a $400 annual fee that is not waived this time around, but comes with lots of benefits.
Earn 50,000 Bonus Points after spending $5,000 or more during the first 90 days After the opening of your account.

The card has a $400 annual fee. But it also comes with tons of benefits that make it worthwhile to keep in your wallet even after that.

This credit card gives you a $250 credit for Airline Incidental Fees per year, per card. You can add three authorized user cards for free and they all get that annual credit. Just this benefit alone is worth $1,000.
The card also earns 3 Points on gasoline, airline, hotel, taxi, rental car, train, bus, restaurant, fast food and takeout food dining purchases and 1 point on all other purchases. There is no cap on points you can earn and they don’t expire as long as your account is open and in good standing.
How to Apply
Applying for the card is the tricky part. There’s no application or offer page and you cannot do it online. These offers are not usually publicized much by CNB, but are instead sent out by bankers themselves.
You need to visit a branch or contact your local City National banker. You’ll likely need to submit income verification such as a W2 or a tax return. CNB is pretty picky, so you’ll need to have good credit and good income to qualify. Branches are located in NY, DE, GA, TN, NV and CA.
This is a great card with a very good offer. There was a 100K offer previously, and then a 70K offer but recently it has been just 50K. Now the offer has gotten wors once more, since the $400 is no longer waived, but just the signup bonus takes care of it. Then you get up to $1K in incidental fees per year, Priority Pass for two plus guests and more. If you can get to a branch and you have good income and credit, it’s definitely worth it.
