I just wanted to post a brief reminder about two different Chase Ultimate Rewards Shopping opportunities this weekend. The first is Lands End today for 10x points. I know my mom likes to buy stuff for herself, her house, and Little C from Lands End. The clothes she gets for C are very well made. Mom, go order the pillow cases you have been wanting today using the Ultimate Rewards portal! 😉
Tomorrow my favorite clothing retailer, J.Crew is giving 10x points through the Ultimate Rewards portal. They also have a sale going on where you get up to 30% off depending on how much you spend, so if you are a J.Crew lover like me, it is the perfect time to stock-up! Additionally, I don’t see any restriction in the Terms and Conditions about gift card purchases, so that might be a possibility as well.
Red Envelope will be the featured retailer from December 4th – 6th and they will be offering 15x points for purchases.
Last week I made my first purchase through the UR portal with a non-UR points earning card. I used my Pottery Barn credit card to shop at PotteryBarn.com (I had a coupon that was only valid if I used that card!). I am happy to report that my miles have posted just fine even though I used that card. I have one other purchase that was made with a different card that I am still waiting to see post, but I was happy that the Pottery Barn purchase posted without any issues. No promises this will work for you, but it does seem to be working for many people, myself included.
To access the Ultimate Rewards portal you do first need an Ultimate Rewards earning card such as the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card or the newly revamped Chase Ink Bold. I am not exaggerating when I say that my family has brought in over 30,000 points by using 10x and 20x purchases just within the last month. These were all either holiday purchases or for home appliances that we were going to have to buy anyway. Ultimate Rewards is certainly on my “nice” list this year.
Disclosure: I do receive a referral commission if you sign up for the Ink Bold or Sapphire Preferred Cards using my links. You receive a great card and my sincere gratitude.
