Chase Sapphire Preferred Card – 50,000 Bonus Points ($625)

Written by Nickel - 3 Comments

Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.

A while back, I wrote about a 25k point signup bonus from the Chase Sapphire Preferred card. Well, guess what? They’ve sweetened the deal, and are now offering a juicy 50k bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases using the card in the first three months of card membership.

Once you earn the bonus, your 50k points can be redeemed for $625 toward travel when you book your flight, cruise, or other travel through Ultimate Rewards. If your airline tickets cost more, no problem – just pay the difference.

There are no foreign transaction fees on purchases made outside the United States.

To qualify, you need to apply for the card, get approved, and then spend at least $4k on purchases in the first three months. Note that this card has a $95 annual fee, but it’s free for the first year. As far as ongoing rewards are concerned, you’ll earn two points per dollar spent on travel and dining at restaurants and one point for every dollar spent on all other eligible purchases with no earnings cap, and your points will never expire.

  3. I signed up because it indicated that balance transfers would qualify as the $3,000 required on the card in the first three months to qualify for the 50,000 points. After getting the card, I find out I won’t qualify for a balance transfer for 93 days! Seems like unfair advertising to me…comments?
