UPDATE: The Chase Sapphire Preferred no longer earns 3X points on the 1st Friday of the month.
Have plans to grab a bite to eat with friends or family today? Remember to pay with your Chase Sapphire Preferred card to earn 3X Chase Ultimate Rewards points.
You usually earn 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points on dining with the Chase Sapphire Preferred. But on the 1st Friday of each month you can earn an extra point per $1 spent.
You don’t have to order food – drinks or gift cards bought at restaurants count too! And the Chase Sapphire Preferred doesn’t charge foreign transaction fees, so you get this deal anywhere in the world.
That said, I wouldn’t go out of my way to earn 1 extra point per $1. But if you have plans to eat out anyway, it’s a nice bonus.
This deal won’t be back next year, so take advantage while you can, especially if you’re the food purchaser for large office meetings or you’re ordering food from a restaurant caterer for a party.
To earn the bonus, just pay with your card. There’s no coupon or registration required.
You can sweeten this deal by registering your Chase Sapphire Preferred card with Rewards Network to earn up to another 5X points from airlines and hotels like American Airlines, United Airlines, or Hilton.
