Retention Bonus Received

Chase Ink
This card comes with an annual fee of $95 so when it posted this month I decided to call do see if they would offer to waive the fee or offer a retention bonus.

Here is a hint so you won’t waste your time, Chase is not willing to waive fees as they have done in the past so your best angle is to see what retention offer they can give you. It took me 3 tries to realize this and for someone to give me an offer.

The offer was 10k UR points if I spend $5k in 3 months. This will be no problem for me so I took the offer and thanked the representative.

Southwest Chase This card comes with a $59 annual fee and they do offer 3k points annually. When the fee posted I called and tried to approach the conversation by stating that SW points are going to be devalued soon and I believe the 3k points are not sufficient anymore. Ya..that didn’t work. I didn’t get offered anything. I’ll try again and try to use the same or another approach to see what I can get.

Here are some recent posts of retention offers from Just Another Points Traveler and The Points Ninja.
