Another subtle move from them is that they seem to be testing higher annual fees as we can recently see $125 and $150 versions. This might be also irritating as there doesn't seem to be any extra benefits bundled with those versions.
They're not rewarding the extra point for booking through their captive portal. Since they were always more expensive than other options, this is not a big loss. The no more 7% bonus is a bigger deal (It's most of my annual fee, for instance.).
What's bundled with the 125 or 150 annual fee is the right to give chase 120 or 150 a year. In the past, they've had better sign up offers for paying more, but I guess their marketing data says people will pay 150 for the card. (I won't, and I use the card a lot, and am generally pleased with it. Primary collision on auto rental is a big plus to me, but it's not worth 65 bucks a year.)
