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.
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.
I've said in the past that I'm not a big fan of most airline credit cards as I find they're too limiting in what they offer. While an airline's credit card will only earn miles/points in a specific airline's loyalty program, there are dozens of cards out there that are far more flexible and which will earn points that can be transferred to a variety of airline programs.
The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is one of the cards that gets a lot of people started in the miles and points world, and when you consider the card's relatively low annual fee together with the benefits that it offers and the power that the card has to make other cards even better, that isn't particularly surprising. In fact, I think so highly of this card that it now has a permanent place in my wallet.
When Chase added a free night certificate to the already excellent welcome offer on the IHG® Rewards Premier credit card a couple of weeks ago it looked like a very generous move but on closer inspection, the upgraded offer isn't quite as amazing as we first thought. It's still a fantastic offer, but it comes with a caveat that anyone considering applying for this card should know about.
Chase has now updated the welcome bonuses that it's offering on both of its IHG co-branded credit cards and while the no annual fee card has just seen its welcome offer lowered, the welcome bonus being offered by the IHG® Rewards Premier credit card has, surprisingly, been made better...and it was already pretty good.
The second quarter of this year saw Chase offering a variety of targeted spending bonuses across its co-branded card portfolio and it looks like the bonus bonanza is continuing into 3Q 2022 with cardholders already seeing new targeted bonuses for spending starting tomorrow.
The IHG Rewards Premier Card is a fantastic card to hold if you're a fan of IHG properties as not only does it currently come with a great 125,000 point welcome offer, but it also offers cardholders a number of key benefits that can improve their stays with IHG and, crucially, save them money and points.
Chase issues two IHG Rewards 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 Traveler credit card which is currently offering a fantastic welcome bonus and which gives cardholders one of the most valuable IHG Rewards benefits around.
The Ink Business Unlimited Card is a no annual fee card aimed at small businesses looking to maximize their earnings every time they make a purchase. While a number of other business cards offer great earning rates in very specific shopping categories, the Ink Business Unlimited Card's party trick is that it offers a good earning rate regardless of which category a user is shopping in.
