Update: One or more card offers in this post are no longer available. Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers.

Get your phone out!  There’s a new offer from Chase, and Sapphire and Freedom cardholders can earn 1,500 bonus Chase Ultimate Rewards points for using Chase Pay 5 times at merchants (in-store or online!) that accept Chase Pay.

I received an email about the offer and definitely plan on using my Chase Sapphire Reserve® card to rack up these bonus Chase Ultimate Rewards points.  So check to see if you’ve been targeted too!

This Is an Easy Way to Earn Extra Chase Ultimate Rewards Points…My Favorite Kind of Points!

To earn the 1,500-point bonus, you must use Chase Pay 5 times and spend $25+ on each transaction with the same eligible card.  The offer runs through December 31, 2018.

It’s also important to note that if you’re paying in-store, you must use a QR code to redeem the offer.  The offer does NOT apply to Tap and Pay transactions.

Plus, it’s only available once per customer.  So even if you have 2 Chase cards, like the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, or either of the Chase Freedom cards for example, you can only earn the bonus once.

There Are Plenty of Options for Using Chase Pay In-Store or Online

With over 2 months left in the year, it shouldn’t be too hard to meet the offer requirements.  Plus, there are lots of stores that accept Chase Pay, including ever-popular spots like Starbucks, BestBuy, and Walmart.

The holiday season is also upon us, so you could always take advantage of this deal when you’re out purchasing gifts for friends and loved ones.  They’re getting something nice, so you might as well too!  😉

I just realize it has to be pay with QR code. So I can’t even really get it because only few options for me to go and spend $25 each time.
Wonder if I can use my Starbucks app to load with Chase pay and then use that to buy gift card for gifts to people.
FYI, I wrote chase asking why I wasn’t receiving any of the offer and they say it was because I didn’t enable marketing or partners offer to email me in setting. FYI. not a target offer but rather settings.

Can I use my Chase southwest card to get the promotion?

I’m guessing it will only work with a Chase credit card and not with one of their debit card? It sucks for me, especially the amount of money I spend there a week! I pay with my Chase debit card anyways… They should change it to take anything with the Chase name on it!

Starbucks said they do not use chase pay. I am contacting Chase pay about the issue

You will need to re-load using Chase Pay as the payment method in the Starbucks App. Stores don’t accept Chase Pay !

Oh no! I’ve actually run into this on occasion but been too lazy to press the issue or look into it further. I’ve always chalked it up to differences in individual store locations and that not all offer the same payment methods.

Is it only good at Walmart in some areas?

I tried doing it in October and it was a total pain in the neck. Pretty much only had Shell and Starbucks. I don’t go to Starbucks. It was only at some of the Shell stations – usually the ones that were 20 cents more per gallon and I often couldn’t get it to work.

I have Chase pay (and I have the CSR card) and it is tied to my Samsung pay; however, I don’t see this promotion anywhere. How can I find it?

I emailed Chase and they said it was only for Samsung Pay

I think this offer is only for reserve card members because I did not receive it and thats what it says on the screenshot (I only have chase freedom card).

How do you use the qr code? How does that work?

I watched it on youtube you look for the store or restaurant in chase pay app then put in your order, go to the place and have them scan the qr code with this device thing (it looks like a black square). Also Samsung pay and chase pay have combined so you can use Samsung pay and still get credited for chase pay as long as you linked the accounts and use chase card. Then you can open either or.
