Chase has new sign-up bonuses for some of its popular travel rewards cards, fresh for summer travel, and the easing of coronavirus travel restrictions. IHG® Rewards Club Premier cardholders, as well as all Southwest Rapid Rewards® consumer credit cardholders, can enjoy lucrative bonus point offers that can help them shake the COVID blues and get out and explore!

Southwest Rapid Rewards – Earn Up to 65,000 Bonus Points

Southwest Rapid Rewards® consumer cards now enjoy some of their most lucrative sign-up bonuses yet. New applicants can earn 65,000 points after spending $2,000 in the first three months of opening an account. Here are the three Southwest Airlines® consumer credit card offers from Chase:

The three consumer cards from the carrier previously earned 40,000 bonus points, so an additional 25,000 points are undoubtedly welcome news to potential travelers weary from a year of lockdowns and travel restrictions. This bonus is even more lucrative thanks to all points counting towards Southwest’s coveted Companion Pass®, which allows a companion to fly with a traveler for just the cost of taxes and fees.

Even better, Southwest has added or announced nearly twenty new destinations, including Colorado Springs, Miami, and Santa Barbara. This means it is now easier than ever to travel “where you wanna” or “when you wanna,” making more much-needed trips and travels a reality.

IHG® Rewards Club Premier – 150,000-Point Sign-Up Bonus

Chase is also upping the ante with its IHG® Rewards Club Premier Card. The card, from leading hospitality brand InterContinental Hotels Group, previously enjoyed a 125,000-point introductory offer.

Now, new IHG® Rewards Club Premier Cardholders can anticipate an even juicer reward: 150k points! New accounts will earn 150,000 bonus points after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first three months from account opening. Plus, new card members will also enjoy no annual fee for the first year ($89 after that).

IHG® Summer Rewards Promotion

New and existing IHG cardmembers can earn even more via IHG’s summer rewards promotion. The new promotion, running through August 16th, allows IHG Rewards members to earn 2X bonus points on their second qualifying stay and 3X bonus points on their third and subsequent stays.  Plus, U.S. credit cardholders earn 3,000 bonus points on their second stay and another 3,000 bonus points on their third stay when using their IHG Rewards Club credit card to book and stay at any of IHG’s hotels or resorts globally.
