With everything happening in the world today, it's easy to see how someone could lose track of whether they have met the requirements for a credit card welcome bonus. Did you spend enough? Did you spend enough in time? You didn't count the credit card fee toward the minimum spending threshold, did you?

Luckily, Chase has a really easy to use “New Account Bonus Tracker” for new credit cardholders. With the Chase bonus tracker, cardholders can quickly see how much they have spent to date and how much more they need to spend to hit the minimum threshold to trigger a new account bonus.

What Do You Have To Lose?

Right now, Chase is offering some great bonuses that would be a shame to miss. There is a 50,000-point Ultimate Rewards bonus on the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, a 60,000-point bonus on the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card and a whopping 100,000-point bonus on the Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card. It would be especially painful to miss out on any of these bonuses simply because you make a mistake while tracking your spending!

Tracker Overview

The New Account Bonus Tracker tool is available on the Chase credit cards website and in the Chase mobile app. To find the tool on the Chase desktop or mobile website:

When using the Chase mobile app:

  • Scroll to the bottom of the dashboard and click “Ultimate Rewards”
  • Click the menu bar on the left side of the screen
  • Scroll down and select “Rewards Activity”

Whether you are using the website or the mobile app, the bonus tracker displays all of the information you need to make sure you receive your new account bonus points, including:

  • The size of your new account bonus
  • The minimum spending requirement
  • Account opening date
  • Deadline date to meet the spending requirement
  • How much you have spent so far
  • How much you still need to spend to trigger the bonus

Our Take

This tool from Chase has been around for a bit, but it seems especially useful now. Even if travel is being curtailed by COVID-19, there are still plenty of great earning opportunities around. The new account bonuses on Chase's Ultimate Rewards cards offer some very strong earning opportunities.

If now is a good time for you to open a new card—or if you have multiple rewards cards and are juggling spending on those cards to hit multiple welcome bonuses—the Chase bonus tracking tool makes tracking your progress a lot simpler. With just a quick glance, you can see precisely where you are on the road to securing a hefty new account bonus.

  • Ainda não tive tempo para olhar e ler todo o regulamento e ofertas. Porém achei muito interessante o que já li.

  • This is a great new addition by Chase for their customers. Along with the fact that they increased the time for the spend bonus due to Coronavirus, Chase is endearing itself to its customers.

  • I found this feature extremely useful when I got my sapphire reserve card. It was nice to easily see how much I still needed to spend to reach the bonus.

  • Although the app makes it pretty easy to keep track of your progress toward the minimum spend, this is even better. I also like to open new accounts when I have a big purchase coming up. When one transaction can take care of the minimum spend, there’s no need to keep track at all. (But I know that is not always possible!)

  • This is certainly helpful; however, I noticed that the COVID extension never showed on the tracker.

  • It would be nice if Chase also gave you the capability to see progress towards other account bonus offers besides just new account bonus offers. Now you have to do that yourself.

  • I think Chase has one of the most user friendly websites for managing credit card rewards and also multiple cards from the Chase family. It would be nice to see this tool directly in the account info.

  • This is helpful, I wish they had the same feature for co-branded cards. Any tips on how to check spend towards the signup bonus for cards like the United Mileage Explorer?

    • JT Genter says:

      I’m not sure if Chase has a spending tracker for co-branded cards. But, we will definitely keep a lookout for this the next time we have a Chase co-branded bonus to track. For now, you might just have to do the “old school” way of tracking it.

  • This a nice feature that Chase has introduced for point tracking. I guess it would be too much to ask for an email reminder, but then it would make it too easy. I know some other cards like AmEx will send you quarterly progress statements if you are trying to meet a point bonus requirement.

    Just have to remember to bookmark the page!

  • One thing I noticed – Chase extended the bonus period by three months for all cards approved in March, but the tracker on my dashboard does not reflect that.

  • A visual reminder of your progress is so useful!

  • Great info! I am going to apply for the Chase United Card soon.
