Referral bonuses are an incredible way to earn points ( be aware of 1099s being sent though ), and I try and do my best to max out each card’s annual referral limit. Today, while I was perusing my Chase account, I noticed my balance had spiked and figured a referral bonus had posted.  Typically Chase, will send out an email notifying you that a referral bonus has posted, but despite my balance going up, I didn’t receive an email. I decided to play around and see which account had earned the bonus. While doing so, I stumbled across a nice little feature that shows you a break down of all your point earning, but specifically, your annual total of points earned from referrals. This is a great tool to use and can be accessed with just two steps.

Step 1: Log into your account.

You’ll see the toolbar at the top. Click the 3 lines for the drop down menu

Step 2: After you click “Rewards Activity” you’ll see the following chart.

As you can see below, I received a refer-a-friend bonus on my Chase Ink Business Preferred.

We keep an up to date spreadsheet that lists the best ever offers: You can find that spreadsheet here.

Historically 80k is a very, very good offer and hit in both 2022 and 2023. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back.

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex®  and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners

Annual fee is quite low at $95 a year + you get a 10% anniversary bonus on points + $50 hotel credit in Chase travel.
