The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless credit card is Chase's prime Bonvoy card and we have just seen the welcome bonus that this card offers raised to 100,000 points. I'm pretty sure that this is the highest welcome bonus that the Boundless Card has ever offered but (and this is the good bit) the last time we saw the welcome offer up this high, the spending requirement was also higher.
It's April 2nd and that means that we've moved into the second quarter of the year. A new quarter means the new Chase Freedom Flex bonuses are live so assuming that you're a cardholder (and why wouldn't you be?), it's time to make sure that you've registered your card and that you know what new bonuses your card is offering.
The Chase Sapphire Reserve Card is one of my favorite cards and is one of the few cards that I hold that never leaves my wallet. While it's primarily a card that's focused on travel, the Sapphire Reserve's strong earnings on dining and fantastic earnings on all Lyft spending (10 points/dollar through March 2022), mean that it's also a great card to hold for some day-to-day spending.
The last quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of this year saw Chase offering a variety of targeted spending bonuses across its co-branded card portfolio, and that run looks set to continue. Chase is now set to introduce a new wave of targeted spending bonuses on its co-branded cards for the second quarter of 2021.
The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card has just had its welcome offer boosted to a fantastic 80,000 points (worth at last $1,000) so with a $50 grocery credit also on offer, this could be one of the cheaper and more rewarding times to consider adding one of the very best travel starter-cards to your wallet.
With just two weeks left in the first quarter of 2021, Chase has now revealed the 2Q 2021 category spending bonuses for the Chase Freedom Flex credit card (review) and the legacy Chase Freedom credit card (no longer open to new applicants) and registration for the new bonus categories is now open.
Chase is again sending out a new batch of emails in an attempt to tempt holders of the legacy IHG Rewards Club Select Card to upgrade to the IHG Rewards Club Premier Card (review) so, as this is probably a very poor option for most people to take, here's a reminder why taking an upgrade would see a cardholder leaving a lot of value on the table.
Three of Chase's co-branded cards are currently offering cardholders small but easy to earn spending bonuses that are expiring at the end of February so, if you're a holder of the World of Hyatt credit card, the IHG Rewards Club Traveler Card, or the IHG Rewards Premier Card, this is a reminder that you have just a few days left to make sure you make the most of these offers.
Chase Ultimate Rewards offers cardholders of select Chase credit cards the opportunity to earn one of the three big transferable currencies in the miles & points world – Ultimate Rewards points - and these points can be transferred across to a variety of other loyalty programs affiliated to major airlines and hotel chains.
If you're a fan of the Marriott Bonvoy program and you enjoy staying at Marriott properties around the world, it would probably make sense for you to hold a Marriott Bonvoy credit card in your wallet. Of all the Bonvoy cards on the market, the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless credit card does the best job of keeping costs low while still offering strong earnings with Marriott and benefits that help to offset the card's annual fee.
