Our Verdict

I just got this on two of my cards, and others have gotten this as well. If they decide to 1099 this, like they did last year, that’ll cut into the gain here, but you shouldn’t get a 1099 if you don’t plan on having other bonuses during the year 2019 or 2020 (last year, they only sent it if you had $600+ across all Chase referral/misc bonuses).

One player targeted so far and all three freedoms were targeted on that account.

US still lags behind Europe/Australia/Canada in contactless payment. Especially where I live.

Europe/Australia/Canada are nothing compared to Mainland China.

On the other hand, you will feel much less safe in a cashless society where the big brother can observe your spending so easily.

I got it on one of my Freedom cards. Though out by me there are rarely any tap terminals. So I guess I will try and see.

Its not just bonus Ultimate Reward points, as the title suggests. I got this for my Marriott card. Would have preferred UR points, or Hyatt, but still an easy way to pick up a few points.

Wording of terms tap with your chase card, so does that means having your chase card in a digital wallet is excluded? Ie google pay, apple pay, samsung pay.

That’s the way I understand it too, the wording is pretty clear the actual card itself needs to be tapped.

Was curious about the same thing. I also wonder if there is any restriction on length of time between using the card (like how samsung pay only gives you points for purchases 5 minutes or more apart). I will probably just go to the grocery self checkout and make 3 separate purchases of 2 yogurts, to see if it works. This card otherwise lives in the sock drawer.

grocery stores, mcdonalds, many pay at counter restaurants, half the vendors at my nearest farmer’s market. Or basically anywhere that takes apple pay, for example — they may have signs up

I’ll be taking your place in line then. Never targeted and still not.

You might want to mention, pay close attention to what card this is targetted for. That image is a stock image and looks almost exactly like a Freedom, so I just assumed this offer was for my Chase Freedom. Scroll down to the very bottom fine print and it says “For your account ending in: XXXX”.

In my case that is a Marriott card. Here I very nearly charged on the wrong card, and they don’t really call this out very clearly in the email.

Also, I have 3 Chase cards.. and got 2 e-mails.. one is obviously for United card because it says “miles”.. the other one says “points” is that Freedom or.. Sapphire?
