Top Credit Card Higher than Normal Sign Up Bonuses for August 2021

For this month, various RBC offers were set to expire last month, but were extended to later in the year. American Express offers came off the list this month, granted they now have different permanent offers. Several offers are about to expire this month, namely the Scotiabank Gold American Express. If you have been contemplating any of the August offers, this is the month to get them.
