It’s been a while since we’ve seen targeted limited-time bonus categories from Chase, but there are now some substantial offers to earn bonus rewards on a wide range of credit cards. These include earning 5x rewards at Amazon, grocery stores, and restaurants, as well as offers to earn a specific number of points for reaching a spend threshold.
Many Chase cards — including Marriott, Hyatt, Southwest and United co-branded cards — are getting offers, but not everyone is eligible. If you’re eligible, you may have received an email with an activation link to your offer (I received one for my Southwest Rapid Rewards® priority credit card, for example).

Even if you haven’t received an email, it’s easy to check if your card is targeted. Here’s how to find out and what you need to know about these promotions.
Chase credit card spending bonus
$95, exempt the first year
16.49% to 23.49% variable
good to excellent
60,000 bonus miles after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening
There is no official list of Chase credit cards participating in these promotions, but it only takes a few seconds to see if your card is targeted and activate the offer.
Visit the Chase bonus activation website and enter your last name, zip code and the last four digits of your card number, and you’ll know immediately if your card is eligible (and if so, the offer will activate).
I checked all my Chase cards and received an offer to earn 5x points at Amazon, grocery stores and restaurants on up to $1,500 spent on my Southwest Rapid Rewards® priority credit card between January 15th and March 31, 2022.
There was also an offer on my IHG® Rewards Club Select credit card (no longer available to new applicants) to earn 5,000 bonus IHG points after spending $3,000 or more from January 15 to March 31, 2022 .
Insider’s Joseph Hostetler was eligible for multiple 5x bonus offers, including The World Of Hyatt credit card
, United℠ Explorer Card and Ritz-Carlton™ Credit Card (no longer available to new applicants).
These offers are a great way to earn bonus rewards on purchases you might make anyway, but it doesn’t always make sense to take advantage of them. For example, if you already have one of the best credit cards for groceries or restaurants, you might be better off sticking with your regular card for those purchases.

That said, if you’re working to increase your points and miles balances in a specific program, these offers are a good opportunity to earn a good chunk of the rewards quickly. Be sure to read Insider’s guide to the best rewards credit cards for more ways to get the most out of your spending.
