I got an offer for 10x points on Preferred, up to 2500 points.
It says it excludes dining & entertainment (the categories that are 2x).
The terms say it’s an additional 9 points per $1, and it sounds like the 2500 limit is on the additional 9 points, so I think the purchase limit is $277.78 rather than $250.

This is the same offer I got. Not sure about the $277.77 though??

Steve

My statement seems to confirm that the bonus is on $277.xx of spending, not just $250; I spent over $260 and got 9x bonus points on the full amount, not on just $250.

Mine is 5x up to 2,500 through 7/31 but different types

• Home Improvement Stores
• Home Furnishing Stores
• Computer & Electronics Stores
• Department Stores

I guess I spent too much at CVS the last time they gave me a promo. Bummer home improvement overlaps with Chase Freedom quarters. I don’t have any planned spend in the other three categories but maybe something will come up.

Never get targeted for email offers on any bank.

I got a similar offer from Chase AARP:

Earn a total of 5X bonus points on up to $2,000 in purchases when you pay select bills with your AARP® Credit Card from Chase between April 1 and June 30, 20191.
Activate by June 30, 2019
Earn 5X bonus points on bills in these categories:
Utilities
Insurance
Phone service
Cable

(I had an offer like this from Chase Amazon earlier this year so I paid ahead most of those bills. At least I have a new insurance payment I can use this new offer on.)

Steve

On my ThankYou Preferred statement a couple days ago, I got a $1.30 statement credit (not points) labeled Merchant Spend Bonus. I guess it’s 10% of an Amazon/woot $12.99 purchase, but I wasn’t aware of any bonus for that. (I did activate a 10x points offer, and got the 9x bonus points on this and other purchases, but that seems unrelated). Anyone know what this is?
