As of March 2015, Chase Bank offers consumers several credit card options that provide rewards, including cash back, points for free rooms, and travel miles. Some of these cards feature low or no annual fees, and some offer statement credits that apply after certain requirements are met.
The Chase Freedom card features no annual fee and a 0 percent introductory rate for the first 15 months. This card offers consumers 5 percent cash back on up to $1,500 each quarter on combined purchases within specific categories and unlimited 1 percent cash back on all other purchases. Consumers can also earn a $100 bonus after spending $500 in the first three months after the account is opened.
The Marriott Rewards Premier credit card gives consumers points that can be redeemed for free stays at Marriott properties. Consumers receive 50,000 bonus points for spending $1,000 within three months of opening the account. Cardholders earn five points for each dollar spent on the card at Marriott locations, two points per dollar for airline tickets, restaurant purchases and car rentals, and one point per dollar on all other purchases.
The United MileagePlus Explorer credit card doesn't charge an annual fee for the first year, but charges $95 per year thereafter. Consumers earn 30,000 bonus miles for spending $1,000 on the card within three months of activation, and if consumers add an authorized user to the account, they can also gain 5,000 bonus miles. For each $25,000 spent on this card annually, cardholders gain 10,000 bonus miles.
