INSIDER SECRET: The window to meet your Chase credit card minimum spending requirement starts when you’re approved for the card — not when you receive it in the mail.
Today Chase made a handful of useful updates to its mobile banking app. The best of these improvements is the new account bonus spend tracker. It can be tricky to know how much more you need to spend to earn your sign-up bonus, because a card’s annual fee won’t count and if you return any purchases those won’t count, either.
Now you’ll know exactly when you’ve earned your bonus points, like I just did recently on my Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card.
Chase Credit Card App Updates
With this update you’ll be able to rearrange your account tiles however you like. If you’re a Southwest cardholder you’ll be able to see your Rapid Rewards balance in the Chase app.
Chase is also adding the ability to access your Chase Home Lending dashboard in the app (if you have a Chase mortgage) plus a couple of other minor changes.
The addition of a spending tracker is helpful and will save you the extra step of having to add up your purchases to figure out how close you are to earning a welcome offer.
Unfortunately, you still can’t send Chase a secure message through the app, which is a feature I’d like to see added in the future.
