Many of the Chase co-branded credit cards are offering card members the opportunity to earn bonus points by spending a certain amount of money on their credit card. This is a great way to increase your point balance for these particular loyalty programs and might be worthwhile to switch the credit card you use over the next few days. Here is a list of the offers that are ending at the end of the month.
IHG Credit Card Spend Offer – Earn up to 3,000 Bonus Points
With the IHG credit card spend offer, you can earn 600 bonus points every month between April 1 and August 31, 2107. You must spend $750 on your card per month. This is not a great offer in my opinion as I value IHG points extremely low, at about .55 cents per point. This means the 600 points per month is worth about $3.30. The only reason to take advantage of this offer is if you stay at IHG hotels often and pay with your stay with your IHG credit card.
Southwest Credit Card Spend Offer – Earn up to 1,500 Bonus Points
For every month that you spend $500 or more on your Southwest credit card, you’ll earn 300 bonus points. While this is not a huge amount of points, the spend is pretty low. This promotion is for purchases made between April 1, 2017 and August 31, 2017. You’ll need to check your email to see if you received the offer. The subject line read: “Activate now to earn up to 1,500 Rapid Rewards points.”
If you use your Southwest credit card anyways for everyday purchases, this is a great way to slightly increase your point balance. Unfortunately, the bonus points you earn will not count towards your companion pass.
Unfortunately, neither of these offers were as good as the Hyatt credit card offer which ended earlier in the summer. I personally took advantage of the Southwest offer, but not the IHG offer, although I have both cards.
Keep in mind that many of the bonus offers require you to register, so make sure to do that first. You can search your emails to see if you received any sort of promotion.
