Give your physical Chase credit card a break this holiday season and you could earn some extra Chase Ultimate Rewards® points.

If you use Chase Pay with an eligible card for five purchases of at least $25 each, you’ll earn 1,500 points. This offer is available through Dec. 31, 2018, and among the eligible cards are the Chase Freedom Unlimited®, Chase Sapphire® Card, Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card and Chase Sapphire Reserve®.

Chase Ultimate Rewards® points are generally valued at 1 to 1.5 cents each, depending on which card you have and whether you redeem for cash or travel. That means this bonus could be worth anywhere from $15 to $22.50, and potentially more if you transfer the points to an eligible airline or hotel loyalty program.

This promotion doesn't include the Chase Freedom®, meaning it won't "stack" on top of that card's 5% cash-back bonus categories — one of which, in the fourth quarter of 2018, happens to be Chase Pay.

But if you have a Chase Freedom® and one of the cards eligible for this promotion, you can earn both the 1,500-point Chase Pay bonus as well as the $75 in cash back by also maxing out your Chase Freedom® bonus categories for the quarter.

Chase Pay is accepted at a number of retailers including Best Buy,, Shell gas stations and ShopRite grocery stores. You can also link Chase Pay to Samsung Pay, which is even more widely accepted.
