Update 3/29/2018: Chase has notified us that this is a targeted promotion. Eligible cardholders may receive the bonus on multiple cards if more than one of their accounts are targeted.


Chase is sending emails offering a quick-and-easy way to earn bonus Ultimate Rewards Points.

If you use an eligible Chase card with Apple Pay five times between April 1 and April 30, you can earn 1,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points. Apple Pay purchases made by authorized users count toward the five transactions needed. So far, it appears Chase Freedom Unlimited, Chase Sapphire Reserve, Chase Sapphire Preferred and Chase Sapphire cardholders are eligible.

It’s unclear if this is a targeted offer or if Chase customers with more than one eligible card can earn 1,000 points on each account. I hold more than one eligible card but only received the email for my Freedom Unlimited. We’ve reached out to Chase for clarification but haven’t received a response by time of publication.

1,000 Ultimate Rewards points are worth $21 according to TPG‘s valuations. This is quite a simple promotion to complete, Apple Pay is accepted at plenty of merchants and can be used for online purchases, too. Hypothetically, one could make five, $1 transactions at any store that accepts Apple Pay to obtain the bonus.
