We’ve previously covered (and recommended) the Southwest Plus and Southwest Premier cards, but Chase and Southwest’s newest collaboration, the Priority card, looks like the best option yet for frequent Southwest fliers.
Hopefully you never have to use it, but if you ever get into a car accident while traveling, primary rental car coverage could prove to be the most valuable benefit of your travel rewards credit card.
The Points Guy got its hands on Q3's 5% bonus categories for the Chase Freedom card, and while there’s nothing as broadly usable as Q1's Apple Pay category, or Q2's PayPal, you should still have ample opportunities to take advantage:
If you already have a Chase Sapphire card, or just like to fly Southwest, a Southwest Rapid Rewards credit card from Chase is definitely worth adding to your wallet, especially as the airline prepares to launch flights to Hawaii.
Now that we’ve explored each of the cards in Chase’s Ultimate Rewards ecosystem individually and in depth (see our guides to the Sapphire Reserve, Sapphire Preferred, Freedom, Freedom Unlimited, and Ink Business Preferred), we’re going to discuss the value of holding multiple or all of them. When used in concert with…
A thousand dollars in annual credit card fees might seem crazier than... well, the cost of a first class seat bought with cash, but the two best premium travel rewards cards really aren’t in direct competition, and those fees feel very different in practice than they look on paper.
Not only is the Chase Ink Business Preferred Card a great way to rack up some Ultimate Rewards Points on your business spending, it comes with the most lucrative sign-up bonus of any current credit card.
A lot of people like to hoard their Chase Ultimate Rewards points to book first class flights or five star hotels that they’d never pay for themselves, and more power to them. But I prefer to stretch mine out to cover as much travel as possible, even if it’s not glamorous. Here are the most cost point-efficient…
3x points on dining. 4x points on gas. 2x points on all purchases. It’s easy to see these bonus categories on credit card offers and assume that those points are all created equal, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
When you have a travel rewards credit card, it’s easy to have a kind of myopia for points bonuses and splashy redemptions, but you shouldn’t overlook what might be your card’s best benefit: Free insurance.
Similar to the special Walmart and Best Buy Chase Pay promotions we shared a few weeks ago, you can now get 2,000 Chase points (worth $20 in cash back at a bare minimum) when you spend $20 at eBags and use Chase Pay to check out. Terms and conditions here and here.
In case you didn’t notice, we really like Chase’s Ultimate Rewards program. Back in 2015, Chase offered an incredible 10% back on Amazon purchases over the holidays- a promotion we’ve been longing for ever since that’s finally returned, with Best Buy and Walmart as the partner retailers this time.
This past January, my wife and I went on our long-delayed honeymoon to Kauai, Hawaii, and all we paid for the flights was $44.80 for taxes and TSA fees. Here’s how we did it.
When Chase’s flagship travel cards and the rotating bonuses of Chase’s Freedom don’t apply, the Freedom Unlimited is your best bet to keep stacking up those points, with no accompanying fee.
We’ve already covered Chase’s flagship credit cards, which bring huge benefits to frequent travelers. Today we’re talking about the Chase Freedom, a no-fee card that everyone can get a lot of mileage from.
The Chase Sapphire Reserve is arguably the most rewarding and most exciting credit card ever, featuring a massive 50,000 point sign-up bonus, an annual $300 travel credit, and a slew of other perks.
The Chase Sapphire Reserve is the step up version of our readers’ favorite travel rewards credit card, the Chase Sapphire Preferred. If you’re a frequent traveler, the Reserve is essential.
The Chase Sapphire Preferred easily won our reader vote for best travel rewards credit card, and whether you’re a seasoned points maximizer or just dipping your toes in, you should have a Preferred in your rotation.
Update: Chase no longer offers price protection on their cards, unfortunately.
For another week or so, you can score a huge 10% cash back on hotels and rentals cars booked through Chase’s travel portal and paid for with your Chase Freedom. That’s double the 5% you’d get during the Freedom’s 5% on Travel rotating quarter, and 5X the year-round 2% you get with the Chase Sapphire.
