Chase is offering some Sapphire cardmembers 5000 bonus points for paying their monthly bill online from a Chase checking account.
We’re saying thanks with a 5,000 bonus-point offer
As our thanks to you for being a Chase credit card and checking account customer, we’re offering you 5,000 Ultimate Rewards® bonus points when you use your Chase checking account to make your monthly Chase Sapphire Preferred card payment.
- Use chase.com or their mobile app to make 3 monthly payments from a Chase checking account to a Sapphire Preferred card April 1 and July 31, 2021.
- Each payment has to be made on time and for at least the minimum payment amount on the card statement. (Paying off the card is always better!)
- Receive 5000 points after completing these tasks, posted within 8 weeks after July 31.
The offer is targeted and it’s not clear what the targeting criteria is but check your email for a message with the subject line “we’re saying thanks with a 5,000 bonus-point offer” – it seems clear though that this requires having both an eligible card and a Chase checking account, and they may be looking at people who mail in checks or pay from outside the bank.
Be aware Chase flags in the offer terms that “we may be required to send you, and file with the IRS, a Form 1099-MISC (Miscellaneous Income) or Form 1042-S (Foreign Person’s U.S. Source Income Subject to Withholding) for the year in which you participate and are awarded the benefits of the offer/program.”
