Are you ready for an easy way to earn a 1,500 Ultimate Rewards points bonus? If you are eligible, all you need to do is use Chase Pay five times before the end of 2018.
How to Earn 1,500 Ultimate Rewards Points
Digital wallets are becoming more popular by the day. To encourage more users, Chase Pay is offering 1,500 point bonus. If you have an Android or Apple iOS smartphone, you can use benefit from this bonus.
To earn the bonus points, you must link one of these Ultimate Rewards cards to your Chase Pay account:
Once you connect your card, you have to make at least five $25 purchases with Chase Pay. The deadline to make these purchases is December 31, 2018. This is a one-time offer valid to any new or current owner of these three credit cards.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy phone, you can also connect Chase Pay to Samsung Pay. You still earn the 1500 bonus points with this payment option too.
Of course, you also earn the normal Ultimate Rewards purchase rewards for each purchase too. For example, you can earn bonus points when you use the Chase Pay app for dining purchases with your Sapphire credit card. With the Freedom Unlimited, you earn an unlimited 1.5% back on each purchase.
Chase Pay Payment Methods
Each merchant has different Chase Pay acceptance policies. Some only accept Chase Pay for in-store purchases. Others accept Chase pay for in-person and online purchases.
These are some of the different ways you can use Chase Pay:
- In-store when you checkout
- Online store checkouts
- Merchant apps
- Ordering ahead at restaurants
To pay, show the QR code to the cashier. Your transaction processes the same as using your actual Chase credit card.
Instead of directly entering your credit card information for online purchases, try logging into your Chase Pay account first. It’s like using PayPal even though you pay with your credit card instead of your current PayPal balance.
Where to Use Chase Pay
Many large retailers and restaurants accept Chase Pay. You can ask the cashier if they accept Chase Pay. Or, you can look for the Chase Pay payment logo too.
Some of the places you can use Chase Pay include:
- Best Buy
- Panera Bread
So, with the holiday shopping and travel season quickly approaching, you should have ample opportunity to use Chase Pay at least five times. You can get some shopping ideas by scouring Black Friday deals.
Chase Pay also offers other in-app promotions. So, you might be able to “double dip” with the 1500-point promotion and store specific bonuses. Plus, you earn your regular Ultimate Rewards purchase rewards too.
Two Other Ways to Earn Ultimate Rewards Points with Chase Pay
There are additional seasonal offers to earn bonus Ultimate Rewards Points using Chase Pay with Samsung Pay.
These two bonus offers also expire on December 31, 2018. If you’re passing through either the Atlanta (ATL) or Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT), you can earn bonus Ultimate Rewards points.
Use Chase Pay with Samsung Pay at ATL
Through December 31, you can get 10 Ultimate Rewards point per $1 (up to $100 in purchases) at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta. You can earn an extra 1,000 Ultimate Rewards points.
This bonus is available at any in-airport merchant that accepts Samsung Pay.
Some of these merchants include:
- Heritage Booksellers
- Newsbeat ATL
- Piedmont Park TravelMart
Use Chase Pay with Samsung Pay at CLT
Similar to the Atlanta airport bonus, you can earn 10 points per $1 (up to $100 in purchases) at Charlotte Douglas International Airport for 1000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points. Once again, you must use Samsung Pay after you link to Chase Pay.
Some of the retailers and restaurants that accept Samsung Pay include:
- Charlotte’s Got a Lot
- Dylan’s Candy Bar
- Trip Advisor
Maximize Your Chase Ultimate Rewards Bonuses
As a current or new Chase Ultimate Rewards credit card owner, you can also use this bonus to maximize your card benefits.
With either of the Chase Sapphire cards, you can earn 50,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points as a signup bonus. This bonus is either worth up to $750 in award travel with the Sapphire Reserve thanks to the 50% travel redemption bonus. Or, your bonus is worth $625 with the Sapphire Preferred’s 25% travel redemption bonus.
Another option is 1:1 point transfers to 13 Ultimate Rewards airline or hotel travel partners.
The 1,500 Ultimate Rewards points from the Chase Pay bonus also qualify for 1:1 point transfers or the travel redemption bonus.
Chase Freedom Unlimited
The Freedom Unlimited has a new cardmember bonus of $150 bonus cash after spending $500 in the first three months. After making the five Chase Pay purchases, you get 1,500 Ultimate Rewards points worth $150 in cash or travel rewards.
Get 5% Back with Chase Pay Using the Chase Freedom
Although the tiered rewards Chase Freedom doesn’t qualify for this 1500-point promotion, you can 5 points per $1 on all Chase Pay purchases through December 31, 2018.
That’s because Chase Pay, wholesale clubs, and select department stores are the 4th quarter 5% bonus category for the Freedom. If you happen to own a Chase Sapphire or Freedom Unlimited, use that card for your first 5 Chase Pay purchases. Then, use your Freedom for your remaining Chase Pay purchases this holiday season.
With the Chase Freedom, you get 5% on the first $1,500 in combined spending on the quarterly bonus categories.
