Update 6/1/21: Links for Southwest cards have been added below. Thanks to JC1 in the comments for providing those.

Chase launched some new targeted spending offers a couple of weeks ago and we just realized that we’d never covered the deals here. Thankfully these spending offers run through August 15 and so there’s still plenty of time to take advantage of them.

Quick Thoughts

These are some very nice spending offers, especially if you’ll be booking travel with any of these hotel chains or airlines seeing as you can earn up to 14x points on IHG stays, 10x with Marriott, 8x with Hyatt, 8x with United, etc.

Depending on how you value points for the programs you have credit cards for and the other cards available to you, putting your travel and/or gas purchases on these cards might make sense too. For example, the Discover It card is currently offering 5% cashback at gas stations, but some might prefer earning 5x Hyatt points. It’s not necessarily an either/or situation though. The Discover It card is offering 5% cashback through June 30, so you could max out the $1,500 bonused spending allowance on that card, then work on the $1,500 allowance on these Chase cobranded cards. While $1,500 is a whole lot of gas, some gas stations sell gift cards (including variable load Visa gift cards) which can make it much easier to max out. Alternatively, if you’re RVing it this summer then $1,500 will cover about half a tank of gas 😉

The timing of these offers is particularly interesting because it means they overlap with the Q2 spending offers that end on June 30. I’m not sure why Chase started these spending offers on May 15 rather than July 1, but I’m certainly not complaining. Having said that, they still only gave three months to use these spending offers as they end on August 15 rather than September 30.

I was successful with my Hyatt card, I think I got a rejection on my IHG, then I received errors on the rest ranging from “please correct the above fields” on the offer page to “we can identify your account right now” after clicking activate now.

Wish I knew if I was denied or if the website is just garbage.

Stephen

My Southwest Priority card doesn’t appear to be eligible.

Initially threw an error code but now it keeps returning the following notification:

~~~~

Thank you for your interest

We are currently unable to identify your account. Please contact us using the number on the back of your card.

~~~~
I’m interpreting this message as a rejection and I’m unsure whether the call center team would realistically be able to help push these promotions through as suggested by the message but I’ll report back if I have any luck!

David Kelly

Same message. Let us know please.

Stephen

Now I’m receiving this message:

Thank you!

We’re unable to complete your request. The System is unavailable at this time. Please try again later.

I have a business Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card and don’t get the offer.

Teresa Henning

Helpful

Ryan del Mundo

MPX a United purchase?

ginger_pickle

My IHG Premier is not eligible 🙁

Robert

Neither my Hyatt or United cards are eligible

VIS

Try again. It did not work for me last night. This morning, both offers were available. Hyatt and United.

Pam

I find it interesting Chase is going hard after “travel” purchases. Don’t remember having ever seen that bonus before (other than normal spend on CSR etc)

JN2

I agree that it is interesting about travel. I have the World of Hyatt card and CSR, and I will be paying for my travel spend, including non-Hyatt hotel charges, with my Hyatt card.

Pam

Certainly does make it more appealing to pay oop for travel purchases the next coupla months rather than points/miles/travel erasures (I guess Chase’ “point?”)

JN2

In my case, I am talking about situations where I was already intending to pay “cash”; it is not changing my decision about using cash v points; it just impacts which card I use for travel. I am mainly transferring spend from my CSR to my Hyatt card, so it nets out for Chase but I get more points.

Pam

It seems Chase woulda just bumped up to 5x on the CSR/CSP/CIP rather than competing with their other cards on travel. I guess they expect ppl will be traveling more so opening the bonus up to more customers but then why leave their best travel cards out?

Vince

Marriott gift cards code as Marriott purchase, so might be an idea to grab some now for a stay that falls outside of this window (was able to verify with a purchase using the Ritz), thereby getting the 10x instead of 6x on that future stay

Pam

I’ve bought cards at Marriotts in the past but does anyone know if you can do this at Hyatt? I have 3 cc with these big “travel” & increased hotel promos & would love to load up on gift cards for earning them

Pam

Thx Stephen, I have had success with the Marriott brand for buying those, which Hyatt brands typically carry Hyatt cards?

Billy Bob

There were some grocery offers too.

harv

nothing for Southwest cards?

Vince

I did get a bonus offer in my SE Priority— 6x brand, 5x travel and gas

David

Do you expect the overlap of 5x earnings to result in 10x?

Jim

interesting. so if one is looking to maximize this, should one wait to register for the 2nd offer until the 1st offer is maxed out (1500 twice) or do you view this as more of an extension of time on the original offer. i jumped the gun and registered in hopes of the double-dip which seems overly optimistic now.

ZinCO

Here’s a DP for you… I had the original 5x offer and the new 6x on my Explorer card. A $23 charge (Farelock) resulted in 1x for all purchases, 1x for United, 3x for United (which was the original 5x offer), 4x for United (which was the new 6x offer) for a total of 9x.
