A prime way to increase the Chase Ultimate Rewards points you earn is through category and spend bonuses, which is why it's worth checking to see if you're targeted for a Chase credit card spending bonus. Here are some of the current Chase card bonuses we're aware of:
Chase Ink Plus, Chase Ink Cash, United Business Card: Earn 5000 Ultimate Rewards points for every $5000 spent until 2/28/23, up to three times (maximum bonus of 15,000 points)
Chase Ink Unlimited: Earn 15,000 Ultimate Rewards points for every $15,000 spent until 2/28/23, up to three times (maximum bonus of 45,000 points)
United Club Card, World of Hyatt Card: Earn 5X points per dollar on groceries, gas, Internet, cable, phone services on up to $1500 of combined spending until 3/31/23 (maximum earnings including bonus of 7500 points)
Why the Ink Cash is Especially Lucrative
The Chase Ink Cash (and our old Ink Plus, which is no longer available for applications) are especially lucrative, because they earn earn 5X points not only on Internet and phone service, but also office supply stores, where gift cards can be purchased for Whole Foods, Amazon, and many other stores. That means you can front load spend by purchasing $5000 or more in gift cards, thereby earning 5X on this spend, as well as the 5000 spending bonus. Thanks to the great category and spend bonuses, coupled with the periodic transfer bonuses to British Airways Executive Club or Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, Ultimate Rewards can be a great way to reserve Iberia Business Class, Qatar Qsuites, ANA Business Class, and other premium class award tickets.
