I have to say I chuckled when I saw this photo of a masked grocery shopper available on Pexels. My plan was to use a generic photo of produce as the featured image, but I couldn’t resist immortalizing what it’s like to grocery shop in 2020 with this photo! I do have to say if you touch the lemon, you better plan on buying that lemon. Anyway, on to the post…
Last month, Chase announced that they would be offering bonus points on purchases at grocery stores through the end of June. Since many of us won’t be using our travel credit cards for travel purchases, this is a nice incentive to keep your card open. This post is a reminder that the deal ends at the end of the month. Be sure to make your purchases in time for them to post before the 30th.
How Does It Work?
Through June 30th, purchases at grocery stores with eligible Chase credit cards will receive either 5x or 3x points per $1 spent. This benefit is limited to up to $1,500 per month. It’s too late to max this out for May, but there is still time to spend $1,500 in June. This bonus includes purchases at grocery stores and grocery delivery services like Amazon Fresh and InstaCart.
What Cards Offer Bonus Points on Groceries?
Purchases with the following Chase credit cards will receive bonus points on grocery purchases:
- Chase Sapphire Preferred: 3x points
- Chase Sapphire Reserve: 5x points
- Chase United Club: 5x points
- Chase United Explorer and United MileagePlus: 3x points
- Chase British Airways, Aer Lingus, Iberia: 3x points
- Chase Southwest Plus, Premier, Priority: 3x points
- Chase World of Hyatt: 3x points
- Chase IHG Premier/Club Select: 3x points
- Chase Disney Premier: 3% back
- Chase Freedom: 5% back (part of rotating categories for this quarter)
How Do I Sign-Up?
This offer does not require any registration and should be available to all cardholders. I usually buy gift cards to max out these promotions. It can be nervewracking to drop $1,500 in a purchase without any confirmation that you’ll get the bonus points. You can test it by making a small purchase at a grocery store and checking that it received the bonus points. Also, for cards that earn Chase Ultimate Rewards points, you can check your dashboard to see the offer under featured deals:
It’s nice that Chase is providing additional opportunities for bonus points since people have less opportunity to travel. If you have multiple cards offering bonus points, don’t try to max out the offer on all of them. Focus on cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve which will earn 5x points on grocery purchases. Happy shopping!
