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 latest of these have just been rolled out, for spending in the third quarter.

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 July 1 and September 30, 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, the Chase Freedom FlexSM Credit Card (review) and Chase Freedom Unlimited® (review) may be targeted for bonuses.

Looking at my own card portfolio, the World of Hyatt Credit Card (review) is offering 5x World of Hyatt points at gas stations, grocery stores, and home improvements stores, for up to $1,500 in combined purchases.

The British Airways Visa Signature® Card (review), Iberia Visa Signature® Card (review), and Aer Lingus Visa Signature® Card (review), are offering 5x Avios on travel and at gas stations and grocery stores, for up to $1,500 in combined purchases.

The IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card (review) is offering 5x IHG One Rewards points at gas stations, grocery stores, and home improvement stores, 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.

Bottom line

Chase has some new targeted spending bonuses on credit cards, valid for purchases in the third quarter (between July 1 and September 30, 2022). 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 and gas stations, 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?

    Nothing on Bonvoy Bold card
    5% on restaurants on Amazon card!

  2. MariB New Member

    Checked yesterday - Freedom Unlimited got the Starbucks offer - useless to me. United Explorer and Marriott returned Q2 offers.
    But this morning I got an email from United Plus offering me "5 total miles for every $ spent on up to $1500 in combined purchases at gas stations, grocery stores and home improvement stores."
    So more offers for Q3 may be coming in the next couple of days.

  3. BenjaminGuttery Gold

    So the Marriott Boundless offer is WEAK. 6X points on all UNITED AIRLINES purchases up to 1500 each mtn for 3 mtns??? So basically they want me to put 1 specific airline that I don't do business with on my Hotel CC??? DUMB. The Freedom card is somewhat better, 5% back at Starbucks, but for only $500 total over a 3mtn period. Chase needs to do better. Especially right now.

  4. karl Guest

    Is this something that should be checked monthly? quarterly?

    1. BenjaminGuttery Gold

      Monthly. My Freedom card was eligible starting in May, but my Boundless starts being eligible July 1st. Some of the offers are for a Quarter, others are for 1-2months and start at various times.

  5. Susan Guest

    10x on Starbucks for Reserve. Useless as I never go to Starbucks. Why would anyone in their right mind think I’d start spending $$ someplace that’s never previously shown as activity on my card?? Poorly thought out marketing campaign.

  6. Ron Guest

    Freedom Unlimited got 5X on groceries and gas. Nothing on CSR, Hyatt, or Freedom Flex

  7. Jason Guest

    Sapphire Starbucks T&Cs mention "or similar cash-like transactions" not counting. Any data points on topping off account via Starbucks app working?

    1. BenjaminGuttery Gold

      Offer says instore and app purchases.

  8. Mike Guest

    Still showing bonuses for Q2 when I try it.

  9. MidSouthSkier Community Ambassador

    Freedom Unlimited: Starbucks offer
    Old ($49) IHG: 5x gas/groceries/home improvement stores
    For Marriott, Hyatt & United cards it showed me the Q2 bonus (did Hyatt & UA, not Marriott)
    Nothing on Freedom, Freedom Flex, Ink or CSR

  10. Allen Member

    No luck for me. 0/8, all personal cards, some with lots of regular spend, some with virtually none.

  11. ECR12 Guest

    Hyatt - 5x gas stations, groceries, home improvement
    Sapphire - 10x Starbucks
    Marriott - 5x gas station and grocery
    United- 6x other travel, gas station, and grocery
    freedom - N/A
    freedom unlimited - N/A

    Kind of shocked how good the Hyatt & Sapphire came out this month

  12. D3kingg Guest

    Chase Freedom Unlimited : No

    Chase Sapphire Preferred: 10X up to $500 via Starbucks coffee app July 1 thru Aug 31.

  13. Zephyr Guest

    For my Chase Sapphire Preferred, I got an offer for 10 points per dollar spent on Starbucks up to $500 spend.

    Mixed results for me:

    Bonvoy Boundless - 5x gas, grocery, home improvement on up to $1,500
    IHG Signature (original card) - 5,000 bonus points when you spend $3,000
    IHG Premier (newer card) - 7x gas, grocery, home improvement on up to $1,500
    World of Hyatt - Not eligible
    British Airways - Not eligible
    Ink Business Cards - Still running their 5k additional points for every $5k spend through the end...

    Mixed results for me:

    Bonvoy Boundless - 5x gas, grocery, home improvement on up to $1,500
    IHG Signature (original card) - 5,000 bonus points when you spend $3,000

    World of Hyatt - Not eligible
    British Airways - Not eligible
    Ink Business Cards - Still running their 5k additional points for every $5k spend through the end of June 2022

    I was hoping for Hyatt and BA, probably won't take advantage of IHG cards (other than maybe small grocery purchase on Premier just for some activity). Might use Bonvoy Boundless for home improvement spend if any comes up during the period.
