A Roundup of All of the Chase Offer Updates

Oh, what a time to be alive and to be in this hobby!

It seems like every week we hear about another mega offer from one of the major credit card issuers. Just recently, Chase came out with a huge 100,000 welcome bonus on one of its most popular cards, the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card.

And yesterday, most people likely were focused on the relaunch of the The Platinum Card® from American Express. But Chase also came out with a few new and improved offers on a number of their products.

Don’t Transfer Ultimate Rewards Points to Southwest – Do This Instead

Recently, Southwest suddenly, and with no notice, devalued their Rapid Rewards points by 6%. While not super drastic, it’s still a surprising move.

Chase Pay Yourself Back Extended, and Why You Would Use It

During the coronavirus pandemic, banks that issue travel rewards credit cards had to pivot and added bonus earnings in various spending categories, such as streaming services, groceries and home improvement stores, to make their products more compelling when travel was put on hold.

Best Ways to Earn United Miles

Most people gravitate towards domestic airline loyalty programs. After all, it is easier to stick with programs that you’re familiar with rather than learn the ins and outs of another program. That’s why it is so important to know the best ways to earn United Miles.

Although United doesn’t have the most competitive award rates, one big benefit of booking with United is that it doesn’t pass on fuel surcharges on award tickets.

How to Book Hyatt Stays With Points

Hyatt Hotels is a favorite hotel chain among many frequent travelers and points aficionados. World of Hyatt points are easy to earn, the redemption rates are very reasonable and Hyatt’s program is fairly straightforward and easy to use.

Let’s look at when and how to transfer Hyatt points, when it makes sense and when it doesn’t and how to book award stays at Hyatt hotels.

You’ll see that depending on the cash rates it doesn’t always make sense to transfer Ultimate Rewards points to the World of Hyatt.

Why The Chase Sapphire Preferred Is My Next Card

When I’m trying to decide what my next credit card is going to be, I consider a lot of factors. What trips do I want to take in the next one to two years? What points do I currently have? What points do I want? What’s my 5/24 status? 

These questions always help guide me towards a card that will help me meet my goals. I don’t open cards just for the sake of opening them.
