Chase offers haven’t been particularly scintillating of late (I’m getting increasingly bored of seeing the Turbo Tax offer constantly appearing on all of my cards) but a couple of new offers are available right now which give hope to the idea that Chase is still capable (and willing) to offer deals worth more than a few dollars here and there.
Get 15% Back On United Airlines Spending
Chase is targeting selected cardholders (presumably United Airlines co-branded cardholders but others may be targeted too) for the chance to earn a one-time rebate of 15% (capped at $57) on spending made with United Airlines by 9 August 2020.
“Earn 15% back on your United Airlines ticket purchase when you spend $100 or more, with a $57.00 back maximum”
Essentially, the minimum return on offer here is $15, and the maximum spending that will attract a 15% rebate is $380 – spending more than this amount will not earn you any more cash back.
To ensure you earn the cash back on offer, a purchase has to be made directly with United Airlines (via the website, app, or over the phone) and by using the card to which the offer has been saved.
Which Credit Card?
If you hold the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card that’s probably the card you should be hoping to have this offer targeted to. The 3 points /dollar it will earn you on all travel spending are very versatile and, amongst a host of other options, can be converted to United Mileage Plus miles at a ratio of 1:1.
Get 15% Back At Gaylord Hotels
Some Chase cardholders are being targeted for a one-time rebate of 15% (up to $63) for spending made at Gaylord hotels through 7 August 2020. The offer doesn’t explicitly say that the spending has to be made at Gaylord properties in the United States but it does mention (and link to) “Washington D.C. – Nashville – Orlando – Denver – Dallas” which are the only locations with Gaylord properties in the United States so, to be on the safe side, I suggest working on the assumption that only these properties will trigger the rebate.
Essentially, the minimum return on offer here is $15, and the maximum spending that will attract a 15% rebate is $420 – spending more than this amount will not earn you any more cash back.
To ensure you earn the cash back, the offer terms say that a purchase has to be made “directly with the merchant” so, even though Gaylord is a Marriott brand, it’s probably best you use the link to Gaylord that you’ll find within the Chase offer rather than going straight to Marriott.com.
Which Credit Card?
Even though Gaylor is a Marriott band and even though I hold a Marriott co-branded Chase credit card I’m only seeing this offer on my Chase Sapphire Reserve Card…but that’s not a big issue for me.
The highest earnings rate (at Marriott properties) offered by Chase’s Marriott Bonvoy cards (like the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Visa Card) is 6 points/dollar which, for me, equates to a rebate of 3.6%, while I equate the 3 points/dollar that I can earn for all travel purchases when I use my Chase Sapphire Reserve card to a rebate of 4.5% – I’m not missing out by not having this offer targeted to my Marriott co-branded credit card.
Chase is finally getting back to publishing a few offers for travel spending so if you’re inclined to book a break away from home (and it is safe to do so), make sure you check out what offers your cards have been targeted for before making any bookings.
