Chase is killing price protection as of 11/17 on Mastercards like the IHG Premier Mastercard, IHG Select Mastercard, United Club Mastercard, and the United Presidential Plus Mastercard.

Here is a dwindling list of cards that still offer price protection.

In its place will be cell phone insurance as of 11/17. The IHG Select card will get $600 of coverage while the other cards will get $800 of coverage with a $50 deductible.

Unfortunately, cell phone insurance doesn’t cover lost phones and it requires that you pay your monthly bill on the card that offers coverage.

The Chase Ink Cash Card offers 5 points per dollar on cell phone bills, making it a better option for your monthly bill, though it doesn’t have cell phone insurance.

The Chase Ink Preferred Card offers 3 points per dollar on cell phone bills and offers cell phone insurance.

Will these changes influence which card you’ll use for your cell phone bill?

If you have a family plan, would it cover that amount per phone? Or would it just be either $600 or $800 per account?
