There are dozens of music and video streaming services available, and some of them are considered as Utilities which earn 5x rewards on the Chase INK cards, same as cellular and cable.
Here’s the official lingo on the Chase website:
Earn 5 points per $1 on the first $50,000 spent in combined purchases at office supply stores and on cellular phone, landline, internet and cable TV services each account anniversary year
In the end, it simply depends on how the provider is coded with the credit card. So the question becomes which providers are coded as part of the 5x-earning utilities category and which are not.
A recent Reddit thread notes that Spotify, Netflix, and Hulu all earn 5x when paying with the Chase INK card.
We’ll try to put together a list of which of these services earn 5x and which don’t for easy reference so that when signing up for one of these services you’ll know whether to use INK or a different card.
Of course, all of these services are just a few dollars a month, but would still be useful to know when setting these up whether to put them on the INK card.
Please contribute your data points in the comments, and we’ll add them to the post.
