    Can you transfer balance $3000 from a credit card to a new credit card with a bonus offer, lets say spend $3000 first three month and get 50K points?

    Most bonuses exclude cash advances and balance transfers as qualifying activities.

    Almost certainly not. Read the fine print, but almost every card's T&C's disclaim balance transfers etc. Not only for the bonus, but even for accruing "normal" miles, points, etc.
