Today is the First Friday of March which means you earn a little extra on your dining charges put on your Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card. Normally dining charges put on the Sapphire Preferred (even those at a fast food restaurant) will earn you 2x Ultimate Reward points, but on First Fridays you get 3x on all dining charges! That means pack your Sapphire Preferred in your wallet today so you have it when you go grab lunch, drinks at happy hour, or a dinner out. Every little bit helps!
Just don’t use it at Starbucks for your morning coffee, because the Chase Freedom® is currently paying out at 5x Ultimate Reward points at Starbucks, Gas Stations, and Movie Theaters for the first quarter of 2014!
1,500 Bonus Miles from MileagePlus Dining:
While we are on the subject of eating your way to some easy points and miles, if you are new to United MileagePlus Dining, you can earn 1,500 United miles for joining and completing your first dine at a participating restaurant for $30 or more in the first 30 days of membership. You also have to complete a quick review that will be emailed to you.
Finding a participating restaurant for MileagePlus Dining is easier in some locations than others, but I’d go a little out of my way to get 1,500 United miles for a meal I needed to eat anyway. Heck, do it today on your Sapphire Preferred and get 3x Ultimate Rewards in the process!
Spring Break Madness:
Today also starts Spring Break for lots of folks in this part of the country, so stay safe, allow a little extra time at the airport, and have a great adventure putting those miles and points to good use with your family. I know that’s my plan!
