Our Verdict

50x points back on gift cards seems like a good deal (or flights), shame it’s only up to $100 in spend.

Just want to confirm that this did indeed stack with the other two chase spending offers. Received 5700 points for the $100 GC. 2x base points, +48x for one day special, +3x promo ending june (this was 5x everywhere), +4x promo ending in august (6x total on southwest, 5x on gas/travel). Nice haul. I have so much travel credit (please bring back points conversion promo) I listed the GC for $87.

Took advantage of this with gift cards on my Premier Business and Priority. Thanks DoC!

I don’t see anything stating digital wallet transactions are excluded. I can’t locate my physical cards but am able to purchase via Apple Pay using the SWA app (You can add cards to Apple Pay via the Chase app.). Planing to find a $100 fare and refund as a hold for future use as a workaround to not being able to buy a gift card via Apple Pay.

I’m getting the “We are unable to process your transaction using the credit card provided” error… not sure what’s going on. I got the email and all.

Never mind, guess I had the old info for the card stored – added again manually and it was fine.

This happened to me as well, it just asked for my CVV but I didn’t know it had an older exp date stored from before they replaced my card with tap version.

For convenience, here is the link to the gift card.

Just fill it out with 100 and use your email for delivery for no shipping fees. To be clear, or if you are neurotic like me, you don’t need to activate any reward in chase.

Once you buy a GC, can you add it to a SW balance, or do you have to hang on to it and use it like a card on your next booking?

Would I still get the bonus points if southwest refunds me for part of this purchase? I get a $75 annual credit for southwest purchase on my card so I’m going to be refunded for part of this. Do we know if those refunded dollars still count towards this?

Good question. +1

I don’t think the credit qualifies as a “refund” per se – when I get credited for on travel purchases on CSR the points don’t get deducted

Is there some kind of shipping charge on the GC? If so, is it better to try and find a $100 (or close to it) ticket to book/cancel so as to have the $100 travel funds without the shipping charge?

2.95 for physical card, free for digital (email) delivery. You don’t lose anything by going over. 102.95 should give you 5004 or 5006 points. Not sure how the rounding works.

Does anyone know how quickly these points will credit? My assumption is at the end of your cc’s billing cycle but I’m not sure.

That would be my guess as well.

Do we have a definitive answer of whether double dipping personal and business cards will work for this promo?

Came here wondering the same. Anyone have insight into this? Would love to do this on $200 if possible. I guess worst case you end up with an extra $100 in GC without the points promotion.
