Introducing changes to your rewards program

Rewards Program Changes

For Chase Checking Customers

After the closing date on your December 2015 billing statement, you will no longer earn the extra 10% annual bonus that you get on the cash back you've already received for new purchases. If you have an open Chase checking account on that date, you will receive your final 10% annual bonus award in early 2016.

Rewards check redemptions

You can continue to redeem your rewards points for cash through a statement credit or direct deposit into an eligible checking or savings account. However, rewards check redemptions are no longer available.

Earn on travel

You will continue to earn an extra point for each $1 of airfare and hotel accommodations booked through until 12/31/2015. After that, you will no longer earn an extra point. We may periodically offer you ways to earn bonus points through
the program.

Phone booked round-trip ticket redemption

You can continue to use your points for travel with no blackout dates. However, all options to redeem for airline tickets based on a fixed amount of points were discontinued, as of 10/25/2014. All travel redemptions will be calculated based on the actual cost.

Ultimate Rewards Program Agreement

Effective 10/26/2014, we've changed the name of the agreement and clarified how the program works. The new version can be found at or by calling the number on the back of your card to get a copy. Along with the other changes mentioned in this communication, we have added details about: how we will tell you about changes, what points are worth, when your use of Ultimate Rewards may be suspended, how you can lose your points, responsibilities related to the rewards you obtain, and the law applicable to the agreement.

We've tailored the site for you based on your previous redemptions and where you like to shop.
