The Chase Ultimate Rewards shopping portal has historically been rock-solid for me. All of my purchases have posted without incident and the points usually display as pending within a week or so. As it inched closer to three weeks from when I made some large Best Buy purchases on Black Friday, I began to get a little worried. I trusted that Chase would help out the people who made the purchases on a Chase card, but I was a bit worried for one of my appliance purchases that I made on my Best Buy credit card. I wanted to take advantage of the 0% interest offer on the Best Buy card for that purchase, so I was willing to take the risk that I wouldn’t earn Ultimate Reward points.
I was somewhat relieved yesterday when all of the points from my Best Buy purchases that I made on my Chase Sapphire® Preferred Card and Ink BoldSM with Ultimate Rewards cards displayed as pending. Those weren’t the purchases I was especially worried about, but I was still happy to see they had posted without any need for follow-up from me. I figured that the purchase I made on my Best Buy card probably wasn’t going to be as fortunate. However, when I logged in this morning I saw that the points earned from the purchase made on my Best Buy card were now displaying as pending as well. Hurray! What a nice unexpected bonus. 😉
Have your Best Buy Black Friday points posted as pending in your Ultimate Rewards Mall & Travel Earnings list?
