In an age where convenience is king, credit card companies are doing everything they can to make things easier for their customers. “Tap to Pay” isn’t anything new, but Chase is capitalizing on the feature and even rewarding cardholders for using it— with 500 Ultimate Rewards points to be exact.
From now until July 31, select Chase Freedom holders will receive 500 Ultimate Rewards points if they use the tap to pay feature at least three times. The purchases need to cost at least $1.75 each. If you only charge the minimum three times you’ll be spending $5.25 and receiving a value of $10 with the Ultimate Rewards bonus based off of TPG‘s current points valuation. And if you can do that in tandem with the Freedom’s 5x earning category, you’ll end up with even more points.
Commenters on Doctor of Credit also report that they’ve received similar offers on their Chase Freedom Unlimited. While one said they saw a deal for 500 United miles after using tap to pay with their United Explorer Card.
These offers appear to be targeted, so make sure to check your email to see if you’re eligible.
This deal is quite simple to take advantage of as long as you have a contactless card, so get tapping! If you don’t have a contactless card, which is identified by the symbol that resembles a WiFi connection, you can call Chase and ask for a replacement card that includes the new technology.
