Double Points on Travel and Dining with the Chase Sapphire Preferred

You earn 2X points for travel and dining expenses with the Chase Sapphire Preferred.  The Chase Sapphire Preferred also has no foreign transaction fees, which is why most bloggers recommend the card to folks who want only ONE card!

Seeing whether you earned double points for a transaction online isn’t a big deal in the whole scheme of things, but will save you some time adding up your statement to see if you earned double points or not on certain transactions.

Previously, you had to do the calculations yourself to see how many Ultimate Rewards points you earned and manually add up your travel and dining expenses and match it to the bonus points earned on your statement.

If you don’t earn 2X points for a travel or dining expense, just call or send a secure message to Chase and they will usually fix it.

Emily:  I can’t imagine checking each transaction every month to see if I earned double points.  Good thing that Daraius likes doing these things!

  1. I wish there is a similar tool to use with Chase Bold Ink Card.
    Any suggestions on how to track and check points on that card without taking too much of a time?
    Thanks!

    Love your blog. But for the last few months, you are either running out of topics or assuming that we readers are just plain stupid! This post is the perfect example of what could have been said in no more than 2-3 sentences is now expanded with screenshots to insult our intelligence. If you have readers who need this level of spoon feeding and chewing, I am afraid at what kind of knuckleheads are flying with me in First Class!!!

  3. You know, we took a vacation last summer,I used the CSP for all dining expenses ate cafeterias,etc,and was so disappointed that we didn’t get double points….I haven;t used the card too much since,as I don’t know why we didn’t get them….same for paying for our motels…..it’s in the past now….

    • @Nenad Pasic – I’m sure it will eventually be easy to see that with your Ink Bold card as well.

      @Gwyneth Jenkins – Thanks for reading! Some folks are visual learners and some aren’t.

      @JM – You should have got them for the motel and dining expense.

  4. I don’t want to be a creeper, but looks like you were in Upper Sandusky recently – my husband and I vacationed there a couple of months ago (Cedar Point, Put-in-Bay, Port Clinton, even Sandusky proper) and fell in love with the resort feel of the place with Northern Ohio’s Midwest friendliness and affordability. Mostly walkable, too (except for the ferry up to the islands, of course). Great time of year to visit, when places farther South are much too hot for us to enjoy. Hope you got to explore the area, and if not – try to the next time you visit!

  5. Do you know if buying Transportation passes counts as Travel spending? I buy SEPTA tokens in bulk (Philadelphia) and I was just wondering if I could put it on this card. Worth a shot!

  6. I always used Blueprint to basically do the same thing.
    But this tool is def an improvement

  7. Sandusky, OH? I think that’s where they filmed part of the movie Tommy Boy.

  8. I noticed our Spothero parking charges as well as our I-Pass replenishment charges both earned two points as they count as “travel expenses.” We drive on a lot of tollways so this is great!

  9. Wow! Checking each purchase is not my style. How often do they make mistakes? Maybe I should….

  10. Gwyneth: Even some of the brightest can retain facts better when accompanied by visuals. Darius is one of the best bloggers in his field.
    And I say that despite his not responding to an email I sent him weeks ago. Even a numb reply would have been ok! Something, anything…

  11. @Gwyneth

    Personally, I never would’ve figured out what button on the log in page to click if not for the giant red arrow that says “Log in to Account” pointing to the button on the Chase log in page saying “Log in to Account”

  12. Shared 50K US Airways miles with the wife and paid for the transaction using this card. Points posted but not double even though this is a travel related expense!

    Sale POINTS US AIR MILES $567.50
    Print POINTS.COM, IL 601750000 US
    Online, Mail, or Telephone transaction
    Rewards earned1
    + 1 Point per $1 earned on all purchases 567.50
    Total rewards 567.50 Points

  13. Thanks MMS, was not aware of this new feature, and appreciate the visuals. Ignore the trolls as usual.

    • @Cathleenn – No worries. I would have blanked out the location if I didn’t want folks to know where we were. We were driving from Toledo to Columbus and had a short stop in Sandusky. We’ll put it on our list of places to visit!

      @Nathan – I believe that some public transportation purchases may count, so it doesn’t hurt to put it on the card and check.

      @Rachel – I wouldn’t check every purchase, but perhaps only the large value purchases.

      @Rudy – I don’t see an email from you in my in-box. Can you please resend it?

      @Kalboz – That’s because points.com isn’t considered travel, but you could send a message to Chase to ask them to consider it!

      @MYRflyer – Thanks!

  14. Useful info – thanks for posting Daraius!

  15. @MMS, sent a message and here is the replay: “Points are earned based on the merchant category. The merchant category for the transaction made with PayPal Milepoint is ‘Miscellaneous and Specialty Retail Stores’ and for the transaction made with Points Us Air Miles is ‘Business Services – not elsewhere classified’. Since, both these charges are not categorized as travel you did not earn the bonus points.”

    Moving on … thank you! 🙂

    They don’t seem to do this for the Chase Freedom card though. Or am I missing something. Would be helpful to know if my little cafeteria where I get coffee every day, and sometimes lunch, was being counted as a “restaurant” or not.

    Anybody know how to check for bonus points for Chase Freedom?
