Those of you who log into or follow the Chase Sapphire Facebook page might have noticed the start of a special campaign today called “Catch The Points Guy.”

This summer I got the opportunity to partner up with Chase Sapphire on a fun campaign designed to help people maximize their Chase Sapphire Preferred cards and Ultimate Rewards points. It was a deal too good to pass up- Chase and Visa Signature would allow me to choose wherever I wanted to go around the world and all I had to do was bring a video camera and provide my expert tips and tricks on how to maximize Ultimate Rewards points. While they did provide the points and did compensate me for my time, the commentary and opinions are entirely my own.

Over seven weeks, “Catch The Points Guy” will follow me as I visit eight amazing destinations and explore the ins and outs of the Sapphire Preferred card and Ultimate Rewards doing everything from booking hotels and flights to attending unique events and meeting fascinating people over the course of my travels.

In addition to the posts and videos from my travels that will be posted on the Chase Sapphire Facebook page, I’ll be posting on every week as well, which will allow me to get into the nitty gritty details of Ultimate Rewards points and how to maximize both earning and redeeming them.

Not only that, but there will be weekly prizes like five $100 Chase Visa gift cards every week, and a Grand Prize of a trip for two to Paris, France, including roundtrip airfare from the nearest major international airport, hotel accommodations for five nights and six days, transportation to and from the airport to the hotel, and a $1,000 Chase Visa gift card for spending money on your trip.

For all the details and to enter the sweepstakes, visit the Chase Sapphire Facebook page at any time during the promotional period and click on the “Catch The Points Guy” app to “Like” Chase Sapphire, register and answer The Points Guy question of the day, then click the submit button to enter. There’s a limit of one entry per person per email per day. Be sure to go back daily/weekly to take the poll questions to gain additional entries.

As you have seen over the past year and a half, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is one of my all-time favorite travel credit cards for many reasons. I would not be participating in a campaign like this unless I truly believed in the product. And if you are worried about my objectivity, even though I partnered with Chase, this is not an exclusive endorsement so you can still expect to continue covering all the ins and outs of other credit card programs.

Thanks in advance for your support and I hope TPG readers win a lot of great prizes!
