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.
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.
I frequently say how much I love the Ultimate Rewards points that I earn from my Chase Sapphire Reserve and Chase Freedom cards so I thought I'd write a quick step-by-step guide showing how easy it is to make a transfer from Ultimate Rewards to an airline loyalty program.
In this post, I set out a simple step-by-step guide that will show you how to combine the points earned by the Chase Freedom Flex Card, the Chase Freedom Unlimited Card, and the legacy Chase Freedom Card (which is no longer open to new applicants) with points earned by one of Chase's Ultimate Rewards credit cards.
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.
ln a little over 6 weeks' time, the IHG Rewards Club Premier Card will be getting refreshed and the good news is that the changes that are being made are almost entirely positive. The less good news is that it looks like once the changes go live, a great two-card pairing that currently remains open to holders of the legacy IHG Rewards Club Select Card will no longer be an option.
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.
With two weeks left in the last quarter of 2021, Chase has revealed the 1Q 2022 category spending bonuses for the Chase Freedom Flex credit card (review) and the legacy Chase Freedom credit card (no longer open to new applicants). Registration for the new bonus categories is now open.
