In November 2018, Chase launched Chase Offers — a program which provides cardholders with targeted offers to earn bonus points or cash back for making purchases with a particular merchant. This is similar to the Amex Offers program, and we’ve seen some solid discounts with hotel stays and on United flights over the past year.

As of Monday, we’re seeing a pair of offers on some cards that could reduce your flight costs for your next trip. If you have a card like the Chase Sapphire Reserve or Chase Sapphire Preferred Card in your wallet, you’ll want to log in to your account and see if you’ve been targeted.

First is an offer for 10% back on JetBlue flights, valid for purchases made through Jan. 19, 2020. You must spend $80 or more to trigger the offer, and the discount is capped at $37 — or a total flight price of $370. Just note that, like all Chase Offers, this is a one-time discount, so if you need to book more than one JetBlue flight over the next few weeks, be sure to add this to your card and book the trip that will maximize the discount.

As is typical with these offers, you must book directly with JetBlue, either online or through the carrier’s app. Purchases with third-party travel sites will almost certainly prevent you from enjoying the discount.

In addition, we’re also seeing a 5% offer for Alaska Airlines flights. This one expires on Jan. 15, 2020, and it applies on purchases of $50 or more and is subject to a maximum discount of $15 (so a $300 flight would result in the maximum cash back). Like the JetBlue offer, you must make the purchase directly with Alaska, and it specifically excludes gift cards, in-flight purchases, and Alaska Lounge purchases. It also doesn’t apply when you buy Alaska miles.

Both of these offers appeared on my Chase Sapphire Reserve, which would be a great option for airfare purchases without these offers thanks to the 3x points you’d earn on travel purchases and the additional protection you’d enjoy — like trip delay and trip cancellation/interruption coverage. However, Chase may be targeting different types of cards based on your spending profile, so make sure to check all of your cards for this offer.

Although Chase Offers were initially only available through the Chase app, you can now check if you’re targeted for these offers and/or check your Chase Offers online.

In addition to the JetBlue and Alaska offers detailed above, I’m currently seeing the following travel-related offers on my Sapphire Reserve:

  • 5% back at HotelTonight (expires Dec. 31)
  • 5% back at IHG Hotels (expires Dec. 31)
  • 10% back at Marriott hotels (expires Dec. 31)
