Chase First Quarter Targeted Spending Bonuses Coming To Most Co-Brand Cards

I receive compensation for content and many links on this blog. Citibank is an advertising partner of this site, as is American Express, Chase, Barclays and Capital One. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by my advertising partners. I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same). Terms apply to the offers and benefits listed on this page.

Chase has spending bonus offers that appear to be available for January – March on all of its non-Southwest co-brands. These offers haven’t been promoted yet, and not all of the links appear to be allowing registration yet, so it’s possible something could be on offer for Southwest as well (or one or more of these may ultimately not be promoted).

To the extent Chase hasn’t notified cardmembers of these yet, and some don’t seem to be allowing registration yet, it also appears that targeting applies and not all cardmembers will be eligible. We’ll know soon, I’d imagine.

Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card and Chase Sapphire Reserve® are already earning 2x and 3x points respectively on up to $1,000 per month in grocery store purchases through April.

  1. @ Gary — 0 for 3 on the Chase cards I tried. No way in hell would I use IHG cards for groceries with total points on spend less than 15x, so I didn’t even try those 4 cards.

  2. Bonused spend on IHG cc yields 3% cash back — meh

    BUT — bonused spend deal using Hyatt cc for $3000 spend yields 5.3%, which is better than anything except Groc or Gas (both at 5X)
