I recently wrote an entry about American Express Offers or Amex Offers and the key things you need to know. Here’s what I wrote.

Amex Offers: 9 Things You Need to Know about American Express Offers

Let’s switch gears. Let’s talk Chase Offers, it’s Chase’s answer to Amex Offers. The idea is similar. In my family, we always check these offers. It’s a great way of not only earning additional Chase Ultimate Rewards points for our travels, but you also have an opportunity get cash back bonuses.

1. What are Chase Offers

  • Chase Offers give you an opportunity for additional cash back savings or statement credit
  • You could find these offers online or via Chase Mobile App

Here’s the info directly from Chase:

Chase Offers brings you great deals from the places you love. No coupons, codes or vouchers to remember, and no registration is required. You just choose an offer to add it to your card, and then use your card to pay in stores, online or through mobile apps and wallets. You’ll see your statement credit applied to your account automatically in 7-14 business days.

2. Which credit cards or accounts get Chase Offers

Certain consumer and business, credit and debit cards are eligible for Chase Offers. To see if Chase Offers is available for you, check your Chase Mobile® app, Chase.com or the Chase Pay app.

With my personal experience, I’ve seen Chase Offers across all or most of our credit card accounts, including my personal non-credit card accounts.

3. How to check Chase Offers online

  • Go to your Chase account using your computer
  • Scroll down, and on the left side, once you pass all of your accounts, you’ll see Chase Offers
  • Click on See All Offers (if you have more than one Chase account)
  • The next screen should take you to the offers to one of your accounts
  • Click the down arrow on Choose Your Account to see the other Chase Offers on your other Chase cards.
  • Each account could have similar and/or different offers
  • Go through the list of offers and click Add to Card on the ones that interest you

5. Things to keep in mind regarding Chase Offers

  • Chase Offers are targeted offers
  • Not everyone gets the same offer, and you can’t call or ask Chase to give you the offer
  • It could also take days or weeks after the offer is used for you to see the actual credit.
  • Read the Offer Details
  • Know the maximum amount of cash back you will get
  • Be aware of the expiration of the offers

6. The difference between Chase Offers and Amex Offers

  • Notification – Once you use the right credit card with Amex and you used one of their Amex Offers, you get an immediate email notification acknowledging the use of the offer. Chase, on the other hand, takes days or a couple of weeks.
  • Varying amounts of credit – you will notice that Chase Offers and the statement credits could be on the low end, compared to many of the Amex Offers. But this does not mean that it prevented me from using Chase Offers. Just know that the credits vary.

There are many credit cards out there. The points earned with Chase have been my favorite for many years. These Ultimate Rewards points could be used with different partner airlines (see below), hotel, car rentals. Here are the Chase Cards that I, myself, use on a regular basis which can earn you these Ultimate Rewards.The cards listed below also offers flexibility in transferring to other airlines and hotels (see below).

a. Chase Sapphire Preferred (click here)– earn 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards.  

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is a perfect starter card. With its current 60,000 bonus points, those points alone have gotten us two tickets to Hawaii, have gotten us to many countries and cities in Europe and Asia, just as an example. The sign up bonus alone can be worth as much as $1,000 or more in travel.
