Chase has officially launched a new dining hub in partnership with Tock, a restaurant reservation app, as well as an extension of the Sapphire Private Dining Series.
Owners of a Chase Ultimate Rewards credit card can now get access to 4,000+ dining experiences, according to a news release, including the ability to make reservations, order food, obtain high-quality meats and produce and even redeem Ultimate Rewards points toward these purchases.
“Amidst a shift in the dining space, Sapphire has found a way to continue providing storied dining experiences for cardmembers by providing exclusive access to culinary exploration and rewarding them for the way they’re living their lives today and in the future,” Chase said in a statement.
To begin, Chase’s new dining hub now features a variety of dining-related perks and experiences thanks to the dining reservation app Tock, including:
- Reservation functionality with “restaurants, wineries and culinary pop-ups” in Tock’s network
- Takeout and delivery via Tock To Go
- Fresh produce and meats from a the Tock Pasture, Produce & Purveyors network
“We’re excited to bring Tock’s one-of-a-kind culinary experiences to Chase,” said Tock CEO Nick Kokonas in the news release. “By offering the ability to easily order best-in-class meals and experiences, we’re connecting our global hospitality network to Chase cardmembers in truly unique ways.”
Added redemption perks
Additionally, Chase Sapphire, Freedom and Ink cardmembers now have the ability to partially or fully pay for Chase dining hub purchases by redeeming Ultimate Rewards points at a value of 1 cent per point (while still having the option to pay with an eligible Chase credit card).
The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is also offering new cardholders: 60,000 miles after spending $4,000 in the first three months, worth up to $750 when redeemed for travel through Chase.
Expansion of Sapphire Private Dining Series
Lastly, Chase is adding additional virtual events to its Sapphire Private Dining Series, which are accessible to cardmembers through purchase or redeeming with points.
“Our cardmembers don’t just want to have a meal — they want to understand the story and inspiration behind it,” said Marleta Ross, general manager of Chase Sapphire, in the news release. “The virtual extension of the Sapphire Private Dining Series is enabling them to connect with chefs from across the country in new ways.”
Upcoming virtual events include grilling tips and tricks with Aaron Franklin, cheese board creation with Marissa Mullen (founder of @thatcheeseplate), meal-kit prep with Chef Brady Williams of Canlis and a full night of tours, wine tasting and cooking demonstrations from Chef Kyle and Katina of SingleThread.
Prices range from $25 to $200, and earnings will be matched and donated to World Central Kitchen. For more information on upcoming events and prices, visit Chase’s Sapphire Private Dining Series page.
The bottom line
If you’re already a Sapphire Preferred or Reserve cardmember, Chase’s new dining hub and various dining-related perks can help you not only further maximize your points but also bring a little fun to your fall quarantine.
