The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card will offer new cardholders a one-time, automatic $50 statement credit on grocery store purchases.

The perk is an incentive to apply now for the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card — essentially a travel credit card — even though travel remains curtailed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Offer details

  • The one-time $50 statement credit is for new cardmembers only.

  • The offer will be available for 12 months from the time of account opening.

  • There is no spending threshold required to get the credit.

  • There is no activation required to get the credit.

  • Eligible grocery store purchases will automatically qualify for the credit. Purchases must be made at traditional supermarkets. (Chase does not count warehouse clubs as eligible grocery purchases, for example.)

  • The credit is in addition to the current offer available to all cardmembers through April 30, 2021: 2X points on up to $1,000 in grocery store purchases per month.

Note: Chase has not said publicly whether the offer is for a limited time only.
