Necessity is the mother of invention. Behind closed doors, credit card issuers are perspiring through their cotton suits as they scramble to craft promotions and offers that will persuade you to keep swiping your cards — and keep paying their annual fees. And they’ve thrown some pretty remarkable offers to their customers.

The latest news comes discreetly from Chase, which currently offers various targeted spending bonuses across their travel credit cards. I’ll explain how to find and register your cards, so you can begin earning 500% (or more) of the points you’re earning now for select purchases.

Register for Chase spending bonuses

If you’ve got any of the best Chase credit cards, you’ve got to check out these deals. Finding them is simple: Navigate to the activation page and enter the requested details. You’ll enter your last name, the last four digits of your card, and your billing ZIP code.

Be sure to check every Chase card you’ve got.

I’ve got six Chase cards, but only my United℠ Explorer Card was targeted for a special offer. The offer is for 5 miles per dollar spent on up to $1,500 per month at grocery stores and gas stations. The offer expires Sep. 30, 2020.

That means I’ll earn 4 more miles per dollar than I normally would with this card. This normally would likely give me reason enough to use my United Explorer card for these purchases, but there are so many other spending bonuses whizzing through the ether that I’ll ignore this particular one. For example, I’m earning 10 Marriott points per dollar at gas stations and restaurants! MMS team members were targeted for offers across a variety of their Chase cards.

Other data points show bonuses with the following cards:

The information for the British Airways Visa has been collected independently by Million Mile Secrets. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

Again, these are only our findings thus far. If you’ve got a Chase card, see if your targeted and comment on this post with your offer. We’ll update as necessary.

Bottom line

Travel credit cards aren’t exclusively for frequent travelers. If you board a plane once or twice per year, your lifestyle warrants a travel credit card. Besides, card issuers add many offers that you can take advantage of without traveling at all — like bonus points at grocery stores, restaurants, and gas stations. This latest targeted promo from Chase is just the latest.
