Earning one mile per dollar spent on your rewards earning credit cards will usually get you nowhere fast, but if you start increasing that rate to 2x, 3x, 5x, or even 10x points per dollar spent, then award trips obviously come into view much, much faster. This can be done by utilizing built-in bonus categories that come with certain rewards credit cards and by using lucrative temporary offers that pop up from time to time.
We have recently started to enjoy a number of bonus offers from Chase Pay where you can really ramp up the number of points you earn paying with your Chase credit cards via Chase Pay. I loved the eBags promo over the holidays that awarded 2,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points with just a $20 eBags purchase! I value the 2,000 bonus points earned at more than the $20 it cost me to earn them…and I got some nifty stuff from eBags in the process.
Earn 10x Points Per Dollar in Best Buy Stores With Chase Pay
Over the holidays we also saw Chase Pay offers from Walmart and Best Buy, and now there is a new Chase Pay offer from Best Buy that awards 10x points per dollar for purchases from January 15, 2018 to February 4, 2018! This offer is valid on up to $400 in eligible Best Buy purchases during that time. The terms indicate it is valid for those with a Chase Freedom Card, but it is possible more Chase cards are eligible and have their own landing pages that just haven’t been unearthed yet.
Typically with these offers, you don’t need to register in advance and the offers aren’t targeted, but if you want to be 100% sure before making a purchase, you can contact Chase via secure message and be sure your account is eligible. For an in-store Chase Pay purchase, you will need to have the Chase Pay app downloaded and set-up on your smartphone so that you can pay with the QR code at check-out. Yes, this is a little bit of a pain, but it is worth it if they are going to keep enticing us with bonus points to use Chase Pay.
Even if you don’t have a new electronic or other gadget to purchase at Best Buy in the near term, keep in mind that Best Buy does have a decent gift card selection. Have you been racking up the points with some of these new Chase Pay promos?
