So many of you were sad last November when Chase bumped the bonus offer to 80,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points but you hadn’t quite hit your 4 year mark since getting a Sapphire Reserve during the 2016 launch.

Chase Sapphire Preferred

Chase is back with a record breaking offer on the Sapphire Preferred card: 80,000 points + $50 grocery credit

Get 80,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points when you spend $4,000 within three months plus get a $50 statement credit when you spend $50 or more at a grocery store.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

The timing of the offer is good for many Chase fans that picked up the Chase Sapphire Reserve back in the winter of 2016/2017. In September of last year, Chase did a short-lived 80,000 point offer, but it didn’t come with the $50 grocery credit and many were not yet eligible for another Sapphire bonus.

Chase Sapphire Preferred Card Eligibility

That’s because on top of the Chase 5/24 rule, you are not eligible for a new Sapphire bonus if:

Many that got the Reserve during the famous and never-repeated 100,000 bonus offer of 2016 just recently became eligible.

If you aren’t quite sure when you received it, you can send Chase a secure message to research it, or call them, though in both cases getting a straight answer comes down to the particular agent they get. Some get a result on the first try and others give up after 5 tries.

If you are eligible, the bonus is pretty unbeatable. And you always have the option to upgrade to a Sapphire Reserve or downgrade to a Freedom Flex or Freedom Unlimited after one year.

80,000 Ultimate Rewards points on the Sapphire Preferred are worth at least $1,000!

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.


I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
