According to the Wall Street Journal, Chase will be rolling out a new points-based rewards program called “Ultimate Rewards” today. Here’s a snippet of the article:
Under the points-based program, dubbed Ultimate Rewards, customers will earn points for every dollar spent on certain Chase credit cards, with no earnings caps or expiration dates. Points can be redeemed for travel, cash, statement credits or gift cards, generally on a one-for-one basis with each point worth one penny. Users can also redeem points for merchandise, although the redemption rate is slightly less than one percent.
