The Chase marketing that changes the 5% categories every quarter works well for them.

EG : Say you have a card that gives you 2% on all gas purchases. Chase let’s you know that from Apr to June you will get 5% on gas. So you start using your chase card at the gas station..
After 3 months the 5% is gone and you now get 1% on gas. Will you remember to switch back to the other banks card to get your 2 or 3% that they always give on gas?

This is especially true when they offer 5% on let’s say Streaming service. So you go to Netflix and change the card they bill to the Chase card. You go to Disney and do the same. You get 5% on those for 3 months and maybe just leave it like that later. Chase wins until some other bank makes a better offer.
