Chase revealed the Freedom Q2 bonus categories a couple of weeks ago but it's only from today that the new bonus categories are active. Anyone holding a Freedom Flex Credit Card or a legacy Freedom Credit Card should head over to the registration page (if they haven't done so already) and make sure that they've registered their card(s).
American Express is now offering targeted cardholders the opportunity to transfer Membership Rewards points into one of two Avios programs while locking in a 40% transfer bonus. The bonus is valid for transfers to the British Airways Executive Club and Aer Lingus Aer Club (but not Iberia Plus) and will be available for the next six weeks.
Over the past couple of years, most quarters have seen Chase offering a variety of targeted spending bonuses across its co-branded card portfolio. With the second quarter of 2022 about to begin, that run looks set to continue with Chase already letting some customers know what bonuses they can earn from tomorrow.
Chase has recently unveiled new welcome offers on its IHG Rewards credit cards. The Premier card has had its welcome offer raised to 140,000 points (the joint all-time-high offer) and the no annual fee Traveler card has had its welcome offer raised to an incredible 120,000 points (the highest offer ever seen on this card). In the right hands, both cards can be excellent additions to a credit card portfolio and with these increased welcome offers they're clearly worth a closer look.
The Ink Business Preferred Card from Chase currently offers one of the best welcome bonuses on the market, but there's a lot more to this card than just a one-off points bonanza - this is a credit card that offers excellent spending category bonuses, that makes other great credit cards even better, and that offers one of the rarer (and more useful) credit card benefits around.
The Freedom Unlimited Credit Card is a no annual fee credit card from Chase that has always been a good card to hold for unbonused spending. Its makeover in September 2020, however, turned it from a good card to hold to an excellent card that can form a key component of an Ultimate Rewards strategy.
In the hubbub of the miles & points world, it can be easy to forget that credit card welcome bonuses aren't the only good way to give your points balances a sudden and often much-needed boost. Upgrade offers can be incredibly useful too, and right now, American Express is targeting select holders of the Amex EveryDay® Card for a valuable upgrade offer that's going to be hard to pass up.
American Express issues three personal co-branded Delta credit cards that all have their own merits, but each card is very clearly geared to a different type of flyer and for frequent Delta flyers there's really only one personal Delta card that should be in their wallet - the Delta SkyMiles Reserve American Express card.
The highly lauded Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card has been offering a welcome bonus of 100,000 points (for those who meet the spending target) since it was first launched in November last year and with this welcome offer set to end on March 15th, you could be forgiven for thinking that I'll be rushing out to get my application done asap. This time, however, I'm going to be sitting this one out.
The United Club Infinite Card is issued by Chase and is a card very clearly designed with United Airlines frequent flyers in mind. As the card which earns the most United Miles per dollar spent with United Airlines, and as the card that offers United Club membership as one of its benefits, this is a card that's clearly worth considering if you fly with United Airlines with any great frequency.
