Credit Card Promo Finder: Huge boosts to everyday purchases
Give your Marriott points a bump with a great offer on groceries and gas.
Welcome to our monthly roundup of the hottest deals offered by credit card providers. These deals don’t stick around long as providers are always looking for ways to attract new customers. If you want to take advantage of these offers, you’ll need to act fast!
For July, we’ve got some TLC for everyday purchases, including some rather generous earning boosts on Chase Marriott cards. Chase and Groupon also teamed up for a lengthy promotional period lasting well into next year! Here’s what you need to know.
Chase Marriott Bonvoy category bonuses
What’s the deal: Earn 10 points per dollar at restaurants (including food delivery services) and gas stations on up to $3,500 in combined purchases.
Who is eligible: The following Marriott Bonvoy cards from Chase earn this bonus: Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card, Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Credit Card, The Ritz-Carlton Credit Card, Marriott Bonvoy Credit Card and Marriott Bonvoy Premier Credit Card.
How to use the offer: You’ll need to activate this bonus by signing into the Chase MyBonus site. After activation, you can use your card like normal.
Why it’s so valuable: Earning 10x points per dollar is an almost unseen rate among credit cards. Other cards that currently match this rate only do so on more limited categories, like Lyft purchases. Max out the cap and you’re looking at 35,000 bonus points — a substantial sum comparable to a signup bonus.
When it ends: September 15, 2020
Other details: As of this writing, only the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless is open for applications.
SoFi cashback offer
What’s the deal: Earn 10% back on groceries and subscription services on up to $500 in each category with SoFi Money.
Who is eligible: SoFi Money debit cardholders
How to use the offer: You can simply use your card for purchases like normal. Cashback will be deposited to your account within two to four business days.
Why it’s so valuable: While this isn’t a credit card deal, it’s a nice bonus for anyone invested in the SoFi financial system. Again, 10% back is a terrific bonus by card standards, though this deal is capped at $50 cashback on each category.
When it ends: September 30, 2020
Chase Groupon Bucks offer
What’s the deal: Earn 10% back on Groupon purchases every month for 12 months. Limited to up to $50 back per month.
Who is eligible: Chase cardholders who enroll their card through the Groupon opt-in site.
How to use the offer: To use this offer, you’ll need to opt-in through Groupon’s designated site. Once activated, you’ll automatically earn 10% back on purchases in the form of Groupon Bucks. Groupon will deposit these to your account within 15 days of the end of the calendar month.
Why it’s so valuable: Groupon has a wide variety of products and experiences, allowing you to earn 10% back on purchases that might not be possible through typical credit card earning categories.
When it ends: To take advantage of this offer, you’ll need to enroll by February 28, 2021.
Other details: Groupon Bucks expire after 30 days if unused.
