Credit card customers may not be traveling as much this summer given the COVID-19 pandemic, but Chase is making it easier for its Sapphire cardholders to rack up rewards toward future travel.
Here are the details:

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card will earn 3 points per $1 in the same categories and with the same spending cap and timeframe. Holders of either card are also eligible to receive up to $50 in statement credits toward an Instacart Express membership — the annual or monthly version — which skips delivery fees and lowers service fees on orders of $35 or more.

Chase has been actively making temporary changes to its credit cards to match the spending needs of cardholders in the COVID-19 pandemic. In May 2020, Chase temporarily boosted benefits for Sapphire credit cardholders, allowing for more flexible redemptions. Also for a limited time, the issuer provided qualifying cardholders with elevated rewards on grocery store purchases and food-delivery services via eligible platforms, though some of those offers have since expired.
