Which Chase card to get?

Which Chase card to get?

  1. Matthew Herbst

    I have one card left before I hit the 5/24 Chase rule, so I figure I might as well get a Chase card. I currently don’t have any. Which should I get? I think I’m preferring a hotel/flexible points card, since I do very little domestic travel and thus the Southwest card isn’t super appealing to me over the others.

    What I know about:
    [*]Sapphire Preferred (50k)
    [*]The IHG card (known current offer: 70k + 7.5k)
    [*]The Marriott card (known current offer: 80k + 7.5k)
    [*]The Hyatt card (known current offer: 2 free nights any category)
    I’m leaning towards the IHG card. It would be a struggle for me to spend $4k in 3 months for the Sapphire, and the IHG free night is not category restricted the way the Marriott free night is.

    Is there something better (or better offers for the above)?

    I would check Doctor of Credit’s post about which cards are 5/24 covered. I don’t think the IHG is currently on that list so might be worth it to hold off. I would focus on the Sapphire preferred. If you have a tough time spending $4k in three months there are plenty of suggestions on how to increase your spend at a relatively minimal cost.

    [USER=79]@Gaurav[/USER] based on this post ([URL][/URL]), it seems that all Chase cards are covered by this rule now. Do you know differently?

    That post is out of date. This is a better reference: [URL][/URL]

    How about checking on the latest UA 70K+5K offer. If you are targeted I think that is sweet number to score.

    [USER=79]@Gaurav[/USER] thanks! Based on that post it seems I should get the Marriott card, since the post claims IHG and Hyatt aren’t restricted by 5/24 (yet).

    [USER=522]@PhatMiles[/USER] unfortunately I wasn’t targeted for that offer – they gave me a targeted offer of only 35k through that link 🙁
