Citi, Chase tweak card benefits

Citi and Chase have made a few notable moves in the last week with their credit cards.

Last week, Citi enhanced its ThankYou Preferred rewards credit card by giving double points for every dollar spent on dining and entertainment. The company said the dining and entertainment category encompasses anything from a Starbucks latte and an iTunes download to fine dining and a trip to Six Flags. Cardholders earn one point for every $1 spent on all other purchases.

Previously, ThankYou Preferred cardholders received one point for every $1 spent.

On Monday, Chase said a suite of its cards will be supported by the Isis Mobile Wallet when it rolls out nationally this year. Chase Freedom, Chase Sapphire, Chase Slate and JP Morgan Palladium cardholders will be able upload cards to the mobile wallet.

Isis, a venture among Verizon Wireless, AT&T and T-Mobile, launched last year on a small scale in Salt Lake City and Austin, Texas. Chase, along with American Express and Capital One, were part of that limited debut. The wallet allows users to keep virtual versions of their payment cards on their smartphones. Users can tap and pay with their phone at any Isis-enabled retailer.
