Chase 50,000 United Miles Offer is Back!! ACT QUICK!

Looks like Chase has made public the link for getting 50,000 Mileage PLUS miles after meeting a minimum spend. The usual offer is usually 30,000 miles, but with this offer, it is increased to 50,000. Furthermore, the annual fee is waived for one year, and you get the usual benefits with the card. I recommend you get this because it wont last long. If you had this card before, you could probably get the miles again, if it has been some time since you last applied. I have received the bonus miles twice already, but the last time I applied was over 2 years ago for the Chase United Mileage PLUS card.


There is also an offer at Chase branches currently for the Chase INK Plus card, which gets you 70,000 Ultimate Reward points, which can be transferred into United. Couple that with this current offer, and you can bring in a whopping 120,000 miles!! That’s enough for more than 4 Round trip domestic coach tickets at the Saver Level.

Chase Ultimate Rewards offering 3 points per Dollar Spent on Air, Hotel, Car

Received an email from Chase Ultimate Rewards offering to give 3 points per dollar spent on booking travel.  I believe you need to have one of the Chase cards that offer redemption into the Ultimate Rewards program, but if if you do have one, this is a great deal for booking travel that would book anyways, if you are going somewhere.  After you log in to your Ultimate Rewards account, you can search for flights, hotels, rental cars, or vacation packages.

So when searching for flights, let’s use Portland to L.A.  You will get your results and note it is almost the same amount as if you were to go through the airlines websites.  I am looking at the United flight and its listing it at $317.80.  If  you were to book that non-stop flight, you will get $317.80 x 3 = 953 points!!!  Also, if you are transferring your Ultimate Reward points into United’s Mileage PLUS program, you would be essentially getting 953 miles + 1600 miles (miles flown to L.A.), for a total of 2,553 miles!  

Some of you are probably saying, that’s not a lot of points.  In reality it is, considering you would only get 1,600 miles if you would’ve just  booked the ticket on another credit card, other than a Chase Ultimate Rewards card.  The only other card that will give you those bonus miles is the United Mileage PLUS Visa card itself. Of course, you don’t have to throw your bonus points into Mileage PLUS.  You can use your points for other redemptions, such as gift cards, hotel stays, and other stuff.  Check out ultimaterewards.chase.com for more details on that.

Chase FREEDOM 5% Cash Back Bonus Category

The bonus categories activation for the Chase FREEDOM card is now live. Looks like if you spend at Lowe’s, restaurants, and movie theaters, you will get 5% cash back on your purchases.  There is a $1,500 limit though.  I personally have never met that threshold, but not to say there are people who won’t.  If you have a home project you are working on, now is the time to make those purchases for materials and get cash back.  You earn 1% on all other purchases with this card anyways.  The last bonus category I thought was nice, as you earned 5% on gas, drugstore purchases, and Starbucks®.   If you do not have this card, you should add it to your portfolio of cards because the current sign up bonus is 10,000 Ultimate Rewards® points, which is $100 cash back, or 10,000 miles, if you throw it into your United Mileage PLUS, British Airways AVIOS, Southwest Airline Rapid Rewrds,  or Korean Air SKYPASS account.  The card has NO ANNUAL fee, and comes with great benefits courtesy of VISA.  There is also a MasterCard verion of the card as well. A sign up link is available for you if you want in my Favorite Credit cards page.
