Like many of you, I got the “oh we messed up” email from today stating that Chase should have never been offering incentives for new members via the Ultimate Rewards Mall. I’m not sure what really happened, but I am hopeful that Chase does the right thing and honors the points. After all – we did nothing wrong and a lot of people spent time and put out money to get in on this deal. For them to rescind the points would be a poor business practice and considering how good their normal customer service is, I’d bet on them being the good corporate citizen and still awarding points.

I got in on the deal pretty late (September 12) and my points posted about a week later, though the activity shows 2 days. The points are still safely in my account and I’ll let you know if that changes. I’ve also emailed my contacts at Chase to get clarity on how they are handling it on their end.

For now, I wouldn’t panic or worry about it … these road bumps are always bound to happen in our quest for points!
