Chase Travel Rewards Card 25,000 Bonus Miles After First Purchase


If you are looking for a travel rewards credit card for the upcoming holiday travel, take a look at the Chase Travel Rewards Card. The card is currently running a promotion to let new cardmember receive 25,000 bonus miles after opening an account and making the first purchase, that’s as good as $400 cash!

While the rewards program of this card doesn’t seem to be outstanding (1% on every purchase, see review below), the bonus offer sure looks pretty impressive. Nowadays, it’s hard to find generous rewards from credit cards. 3% is very rare and only a handful of cards give cardholders more than 1% cashback. As the credit market shows no sign of easing up, it won’t surprise me if credit card issuers cut back on rewards.

Chase Travel Rewards Card Review

Chase Travel Rewards Visa Signature Card is a relatively new credit card from Chase (the card is not currently listed on Chase main website). With this card you can earn 1 mile for every dollar spent and there is no limit on how many miles you can accumulate with this card. Though the card itself doesn’t charge an annual fee, there’s, however, a $49 annual rewards program fee, which will be waived for the first year. Afterward, the program fee will be renewed every year, as long as you keep your account open. If you decide to cancel your card, the program fee for that year can be refunded.

Every time when you accumulate 25,000 miles with this card, you can redeem your miles for a round-trip ticket on most major airlines up to a $400 value. In addition to airline tickets, you can also redeem your miles for statement credit, starting at 15,000 miles which can be redeemed for a $150 statement credit against any travel purchase with your Chase credit card. Basically, you have all the flexibility on how you want to use your miles and you can redeem them for

  • Any flight
  • Any hotel
  • Any restaurant
  • Any time
  • Any place

Other benefits of Chase Travel Rewards Card include:

  • No Pre-Set Spending Limit: No pre-set spending limit gives you additional spending flexibility should you need it, so you can enjoy added peace of mind.
