[Rumor] Chase To Launch Spend $15k/$30k/$45k Promotion, Get 1/2/3 Free Nights At Category 1-4 Properties (First Year Only)
Yesterday Chase sent out a survey about an upcoming promotion for a hotel card, basically the promotion is offering a free night at a category 1-4 property after you spend $15,000 within your first account year. In total you will be able to earn up to three nights (one night at $15,000, two nights at $30,000 and three nights at $45,000) and the survey was really about comparing creatives than the deal itself. From what I’ve heard internally this promotion is definitely going ahead, I don’t know the specific card it will be offered on but I’ll be shocked if it’s not the Marriott card. I’d expect this offer to launch alongside the launch of the Marriott no annual fee card sometime in Q2.
The offer itself isn’t really useful, you need to spend $15,000 for a highly restrictive free night certificate and the earning rates on all of the Chase co-branded hotel cards aren’t very strong. In addition to the promotion will only apply to people in their first year. The survey was also gauging how familiar respondents are with ‘The Points Guy”, in my opinion this is yet another indication it’s a Marriott promotion given all the positive press TPG has been giving Marriott as of late.
