Chase is 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 but, for most people, this is probably a very poor option to take as it involves leaving a lot of value on the table.
The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless credit card is Chase's prime Bonvoy card and thanks to the fact that we're currently watching the convergence of a number of deals, enhancements, and rule relaxations, now may be a very good time to consider adding the card to your wallet.
A little earlier I wrote about how the majority of Marriott Bonvoy credit cards issued by Chase and American Express will earn 6 points/dollar on grocery spending for a limited time, and now we're hearing that Chase is also offering bonus points for grocery spending on 21 of its other travel-related cards...including the very popular Sapphire Cards.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is one of the cards that got 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 than they already are, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is still a card to be reckoned with.
