New Chase/United Card: Chase United Quest Credit Card

  • Chase is rumored to launch a new co-branded credit card on March 21: New United Quest℠ Card.
  • Cardholders of the discontinued Chase United Platinum Class Card received a mailer indicating their cards would be upgraded to the new offer on that date.
  • The new card is rumored to have a $250 annual fee, and will offer 3X points for United purchases.

Chase Pay No Longer Available at End of March

  • The Chase Pay digital wallet/payment method will no longer be available after March 31. This follows the removal of Chase Pay as an in-store payment method in 2019.
  • Chase Pay never caught on, as shoppers prefer platforms like PayPal; fewer than 1% of online retailers accepted Chase Pay in mid-2019.
  • Digital wallets and mobile wallets, like PayPal, Apple Pay, and Samsung Pay, are convenient and relatively secure payment methods. Credit and debit cards can be loaded into digital wallets and used for online or in-store payments.

Target REDCard: $40 Off One Purchase Over $40

U.S. Bank Cash+ Card to Require $25 Minimum Redemptions

  • The U.S. Bank Cash+™ Visa Signature® Card (Review) will require statement credit and bank account deposit redemptions to be at least $25 (there was no previous requirement).
  • Cash back rewards with this card will expire 36 months after they’re earned, so try to earn enough for a redemption.
  • Other redemption options with minimums less than $25 may be available.
