The original Chase Hyatt Credit Card has not been open to new applicants for a number of years (the World of Hyatt Credit Card took its place) and although existing cardholders have been able to use their card as normal since the card was withdrawn from circulation, Chase and Hyatt have now decided to retire the card for good.
Generally speaking, if you want a credit card that offers impressive earnings power you have to be prepared to pay for it and, in a lot of cases, paying for it means taking on annual fees of at least $495/year. Not with the Ink Business Cash Card from Chase.
Towards the beginning of October I mentioned that I was planning to apply for three new credit cards in the coming months so, now that my first application is out of the way, I thought I'd write a post on how the application process went and on the timeline I encountered when it came to being able to make use of the various benefits that the World of Hyatt credit card offers.
As well as giving cardholders a certificate for a free night at any Category 1 - 4 Hyatt property every year (just for holding the card), the World of Hyatt credit card also gives cardholders the opportunity to earn a further free night certificate through spending. Starting next year, Chase is changing the timeframe cardholders are given to earn that second free night. The change isn't bad or majorly significant, but it's a change that for one year only, opens up an opportunity.
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.
[Targeted] Chase Credit Cards Are Offering A Variety Of Spending Bonuses (Amazon, Groceries, Gas,...
Coming swiftly on top of the news that the Chase Sapphire Credit Cards will soon be offering bonus points for grocery spending, comes the news that a variety of other Chase credit cards will soon be offering targeted cardholders bonus points for spending in select shopping categories.
Now that the limited-time spending bonuses that the Chase Sapphire cards offered earlier in the year have expired, and with cardholders wondering how they'll be able to make the most of their cards while the travel world is still at a virtual standstill, Chase has announced an extension to some of the limited-time Sapphire card benefits that it introduced earlier in the year and the reintroduction of bonus points on grocery spending.
On 1 October, Chase introduced us to the best welcome bonus it has ever offered on its Marriott Bonvoy Boundless credit card but with the current bonus set to be withdrawn on Wednesday, there are under three days left to lock in the chance to earn the five free nights that the Boundless card is now offering.
Chase is continuing to refresh the welcome offers on its range of credit cards and the latest card to be updated is the World of Hyatt credit card. The new welcome offer goes live today and not only does it give new applicants a choice of bonuses they can earn, but it also gives them 10 elite night credits for 2020 and a further 10 elite night credits in 2021.
Chase issues two IHG Rewards Club co-branded credit cards and while the premium card usually gets most of the attention, this post focuses on the less often discussed no annual fee IHG Rewards Club Traveler credit card which is currently offering a fantastic welcome bonus and which gives cardholders one of the most valuable IHG Rewards benefits around.
