Chase cardholders: Check your email or log into your Chase account to see if you’ve been invited to participate in a special offer that gives you the opportunity to earn bonus points when you use Apple Pay or Google Pay.

From now through Dec. 31, 2018, Chase is inviting people with Chase Freedom Unlimited®, Chase Sapphire Preferred® and Chase Sapphire Reserve® credit cards to take advantage of a limited-time bonus offer. When eligible cardholders make payments through Apple Pay or Google Pay, they get an additional point per dollar on their purchases.

The offer means that Chase Freedom Unlimited cardholders get 2.5% cash back on every purchase, if they make those purchases through Apple Pay or Google Pay. Chase Sapphire Preferred cardholders can earn 3x points on travel and dining, while Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders can earn 4x points on dining and another 4x on travel after earning their $300 travel credit. Don’t forget that Chase Sapphire points increase in value when redeemed for travel through Chase Ultimate Rewards®.

If you receive one of Chase’s invites, be sure to link your card to either Google Pay or Apple Pay to earn the extra points. The invitation may limit you to just one of the digital wallets; that is, if you are invited to earn extra points with Google Pay, you won’t also be able to earn points with Apple Pay.

Check your email or log into your Chase account, follow the instructions and earn your extra points before the offer expires at the end of the year.
