Credit card issuers offer all kinds of targeted promotions to keep cardmembers engaged. In particular, we frequently see bonuses for spending in certain categories, so that cardmembers keep a particular product front of wallet.
Chase frequently offers targeted, limited time spending bonuses on select cards, and it looks like the first set of those is just being rolled out for 2022.
Chase’s card spending bonuses for 2022
Chase is offering targeted spending bonuses on many of its credit cards, with registration being required. These deals are available for purchases between January 15 and March 31, 2022.
To see if you’re eligible, just visit chase.com/mybonus and enter your last name, zip code, and the last four digits of your card number. If you have multiple Chase cards you’ll have to check your eligibility for each card individually.
What kind of bonuses is Chase offering?
Chase credit cards are offering bonuses tailored to the particular rewards currency offered by a card. You can check what each card is eligible for at this link. These bonuses are targeted — not everyone will be eligible, and even those who are eligible may be presented with different offers. If you’re not eligible for an offer, you’ll see a message stating that an offer isn’t available to you.
It would appear that bonuses are primarily available on co-branded credit cards, including those issued in conjunction with Hyatt, IHG, Marriott, Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines cards. On top of that, many report that the Chase Freedom FlexSM Credit Card (review) and Chase Freedom Unlimited® (review) are being targeted for bonuses.
The British Airways Visa Signature® Card (review), Iberia Visa Signature® Card (review), and Aer Lingus Visa Signature® Card (review), are offering 5x Avios at grocery stores, restaurants, and amazon.com, for up to $1,500 in combined purchases.
Some of these offers are great. For example, I’d absolutely take advantage of the British Airways and Hyatt offers, while I wouldn’t take advantage of the IHG offer, based on my valuation of points.
Chase has some new targeted spending bonuses on credit cards (valid for purchases between January 15 and March 31, 2022), and you can check your eligibility here. Many cardmembers should be eligible, and this could be a fantastic way to pick up some bonus rewards.
It seems that the most common offer is for 5x points on grocery stores, restaurants, and amazon.com, and I imagine those bonus categories will be useful for many. Just remember that not all points currencies are created equal, so 5x Hyatt points is worth more than 5x IHG points.
Were you targeted for Chase spending bonuses, and if so, do you plan on taking advantage of them?
