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.
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.
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.
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 can earn points that can be transferred to a variety of airline programs.
Accor Hotels took over full ownership of the sbe hotel brands in late 2020 (brands which, among others, include the Delano, Mondrian, SLS, and Redbury brands) so I thought I'd write a quick post to remind holders of the Chase Sapphire cards that their cards give them valuable additional benefits when they stay at select hotels in the sbe portfolio.
It has been a while coming but it now looks as if all Chase business cards can finally be used in Apple, Google, and Samsung Pay digital wallets following an announcement by Chase in the past hour.
In this post, I'm going to set out a simple step-by-step guide that will show you how to combine the points earned by either the Chase Freedom Flex Card (review), the Chase Freedom Unlimited Card (review), or 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.
Hyatt has just announced a new promotion for holders of the World of Hyatt Credit Card in which it's offering up to 5,000 bonus points for spending made through 28 February. All World of Hyatt credit card holders are eligible for this promotion even if they're currently in the process of being transitioned from the legacy Hyatt credit card.
