The Chase Freedom card has published the 2016 5x earrings lists. They are quite nice I have to say as I can clean up with both Gas stations and grocery stores buying VDGCs and unload them to BlueBird and net 4x points free. Simple, quick and easy Ultimate rewards points are always good (when they stay put in your account that is)!
The next one that truly is a great offer is the Chase Sapphire Preferred card. Even if you just cash out the 50,000 points you are getting $500 for this one offer. Not bad at all.
Now the trick is the new super tight requirements to get the card(s) above from Chase. Chase, at some point last year, decided all their own cards i.e. non co-branded like the British Air card etc. would be exclusively offered to anyone who has NOT requested more than 5 new credit cards from ANY bank over the past 2 years. Yuck.
So that dumps a huge part of us out of the game to get these cards since many of use get 3-5 cards every 91+ days and thus can have as many as 20 cards in a year! Not something Chase likes to see.
But since the new rule came down from on-high from Chase there have been scattered reports of folks getting approved despite applying for cards every 91+ days. I guess if the offer looks good enough for you then maybe it is worth the try to see if you can get it. If you are new to the game either of these cards would be good ones to consider. – René
