Right before Christmas Chase was running a promotion on purchases made at Best Buy through the Chase Pay app. That same offer has returned.
The promo is pretty straightforward, use the Chase Pay app and receive points. Let’s break down the key points though.
- The offer is valid with other Chase cards, including the Chase Freedom — although you cannot combine this onto other bonuses. In other words, 10% cash is the max you can receive on purchases. (H/T Doctor of Credit)
- This is valid for up to $300 in purchases from Best Buy, down from the $400 that was offered around the holidays.
- The offer is valid until February 4, 2018
- Purchases must be made in-store, in order to receive the bonus
Even though this isn’t as lucrative as the bonus before Christmas, it is still a very attractive offer. Obviously, Chase is pushing this mobile payment feature pretty hard. While I think that Apple Pay is extremely convenient, I’ve yet to master the convenience of Chase Pay. With all of these offers it may be a good idea going forward though!
I was able to take advantage of the offer before Christmas as I severely procrastinated on holiday shopping, but this offer comes in the aftermath — when most are still recovering from the holiday binge. While I don’t think I need anything right now, I find these offers to be very appealing in terms of growing my Ultimate Rewards. If you are able to take advantage of this offer, those 3,000 points are worth $45 when redeemed for travel through the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal. A really great return if you can get it.
