[Starts today] Chase 5x & other spending bonuses Q2 2021: Hyatt, United, Marriott and more cards [possibly targeted]

34
Update 4/1/21: Reminder that these offers start today. If the registration links didn’t work for you previously, they may work today (some of the cards in my household that didn’t work when we originally posted this worked today via the general single link under “The Deal” below.

Updated with a single link to check for offers.

Chase is out with some possibly targeted spending offers for Q2 2021 on their co-branded cards, including from Hyatt, United, Marriott, IHG, Disney, AARP, and more. I couldn’t seem to get any of my Chase cards registered successfully, but we have seen similar issues with registration the past few times and I’ve been able to eventually register my cards (and registration is retroactive for the quarter so long as you do it by June 30th), so I’ll just keep trying every week or so until it works. Note that this time there are multiple links for various co-brands. In some cases, the fine print notes which card(s) are eligible through that particular link and each card is capped at $1500 in spend for the quarter. I imagine that each cardholder will be targeted for one offer, though in some cases the wording is vague.

The Deal

Key Details

  • Capped at $1500 in spend per registered card during the bonus period (April 1 – June 30, 2021)
  • Registration required by June 30, 2021
  • Precise terms vary a bit – see the fine print at the bottom of each landing page

Example Terms

Here is the fine print found at the bottom of the registration page for the Hyatt 5X everywhere offer:

*To be eligible for this bonus offer, you must activate by 06/30/2021 11:59 p.m. E.T. You will earn 5 Bonus Points total for each $1 spent on up to $1,500 in total combined purchases from 04/01/2021 to 06/30/2021. Total Bonus Points shown are the maximum you will earn on those purchases during the promotion, regardless of what you already earn on those purchases in your rewards program. For more information about Chase rewards categories, see chase.com/RewardsCategoryFAQs. Purchases posted to your account with a transaction date during the offer period are eligible for this offer. Delays by the merchant, such as shipping, could extend the transaction date beyond the offer period. Please allow up to 8 weeks after qualifying purchases post to your account for Bonus Points to post to your account. (“Purchases” do not include balance transfers, cash advances, travelers checks, foreign currency, money orders, wire transfers or similar cash-like transactions, lottery tickets, casino gaming chips, race track wagers or similar betting transactions, any checks that access your account, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, and fees of any kind, including an annual fee, if applicable.) To qualify for this bonus offer, account must be open and not in default at the time of fulfillment. This bonus offer is non-transferable. Eligible credit cards: World of Hyatt Credit Card.

Quick Thoughts

It’s certainly worth registering here, particularly for the 5x-everywhere offers. While those with a Chase Ink Cash card will argue that you can just buy Visa Gift Cards at an office supply store to effectively get 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent everywhere, that isn’t always convenient. If you need to make a purchase that is larger than $200 and/or want other types of credit card protections, these bonuses can certainly be decent depending on how you value the points.

I can’t seem to find links for the Southwest cards, but I imagine those links will show up soon enough.

As noted at the top, don’t be surprised if registration is glitchy at the moment. It is possible that these offers are targeted, though based on the past couple of rounds of these offers I think it is more likely that Chase has simply built very glitchy registration systems. The good news is that registration is retroactive. Just the other day, I made a purchase on a card that should have earned a bonus this quarter but when I didn’t receive bonus points I realized I had forgotten to register. I then registered and by the next day my 5x points were showing up on the transaction in my Chase account online.

Overall, these are particularly good offers given that in some cases they are good anywhere. I’ll certainly be looking to get my cards registered in the coming weeks.
