Build Your Ultimate Rewards Balance with This Promotion

with No Comments

Chase is currently offering an easy way to add to your Ultimate Rewards points balance.

Simply go to, load up your shopping cart with whatever your heart desires, checkout with Chase Pay, and you’ll earn 10x Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent on your purchase(s) of up to $250.

Which means, if you max out the offer you’ll earn an easy 2,500 Ultimate Rewards points for the effort.

Yes, this promotion does involve a little effort in that you must use Chase Pay to make your payment.  If you’re not familiar with Chase Pay, you can find more info here.

Account set up is fairly simple and can be done on the payment screen.  Or you can log in to your Chase Ultimate Rewards earning credit card account and under the Pay & Transfer dropdown link at the top of the page you’ll see a link for Chase Pay.  Select it and you can quickly set up and activate your Chase Pay account.

Then, going forward, you’ll just have to enter your Chase account log in info when you pay with Chase Pay.

The Chase Pay/ promotion runs through August 31, 2017.


It may seem from whichever promotion info you’re looking at that only one specific Chase credit card will earn the 10x Ultimate Rewards points for this promo.  As you can see above, it mentions the Chase Sapphire card.

However, other promo literature show different cards…in the case below it’s the Chase Freedom card.

And, as many Miles and Points hobbyists know, the cash back earned on the Chase Freedom card can be transferred to a premium Ultimate Rewards earning card’s account (Sapphire Reserve, Sapphire Preferred or Ink Preferred Business card – or older premium business cards) and used as Ultimate Rewards points.

Reports indicate that the following Chase credit cards will earn the 10x points at when used as the Chase Pay payment method.

  • Sapphire
  • Sapphire Preferred
  • Sapphire Reserve
  • Freedom
  • Freedom Unlimited

Or, put another way, all of the Chase Ultimate Rewards earning personal credit cards.  Chase business credit cards will not earn the 10x bonus points.


Of course, you can simply go to and purchase $250 worth of merchandise you need. Bam! You just earned 2,500 Ultimate Rewards points.

If you have kids heading back to school, some schools have class supply lists loaded to, making the purchase of school supplies simple.  Plus, you’ll earn 10x UR points on your school supply purchases.

However, if you don’t have a specific need for $250 worth of merchandise from Walmart, you can always purchase gift cards to earn the valuable Ultimate Rewards points.

My plan is to purchase a $200 Visa Gift Card.  Yes, there’s a $6.88 gift card fee, but I’ll gladly pay that amount to get 2,000+ Ultimate Rewards points.  Then I’ll use the gift card to pay for groceries or other non-bonused spend purchases until it’s used up.


This promotion is an easy way to earn a few thousand Ultimate Rewards points.

Just set up your Chase Pay account – if you haven’t already done so – and make some purchases at, earning 10x Ultimate Rewards points on every dollar you spend up to $250.
