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.
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.
Chase has now revealed the Q3 bonus categories for its Freedom cards so anyone holding a Freedom Flex℠ credit card or a legacy Freedom Credit Card should head over to the registration page and make sure that they've registered their card(s) so they're ready for the moment the bonus categories go live.
Earlier today, I wrote about British Airways improving the Companion Voucher issued by UK-issued American Express cards and while that news probably wasn't particularly interesting to US-based readers, the follow-up news that Chase and British Airways have improved the Travel Together benefit that comes with the British Airways Visa Signature® card will probably attract more attention.
Chase revealed the Freedom Q2 bonus categories a couple of weeks ago but it's only from today that the new bonus categories are active. Anyone holding a Freedom Flex Credit Card or a legacy Freedom Credit Card should head over to the registration page (if they haven't done so already) and make sure that they've registered their card(s).
Over the past couple of years, most quarters have seen Chase offering a variety of targeted spending bonuses across its co-branded card portfolio. With the second quarter of 2022 about to begin, that run looks set to continue with Chase already letting some customers know what bonuses they can earn from tomorrow.
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.
