December is upon us, and that means that today is the last First Friday of the year, which means you’ll earn triple points on dining when you use your Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. There is no need to register for this offer.
Every First Friday of the month Chase Sapphire cardholders earn 3 Points per $1 on dining at the restaurant of your choice during the First Friday of the month through 2014. But you still get 2X Points on dining every day. All you have to do is use any Chase Sapphire card.
You can view many restaurant recommendations on their Facebook site, but note any restaurant will count even if it’s not listed on here.
A great way to maximize this is to buy gift cards to your favorite restaurants today, so you’ll earn triple points no matter when you go back and eat there.
Another way to maximize on dining purchases is to use your Chase Ink Plus card to buy gift cards for restaurants at office supply stores, since you can earn 5x points on your purchases there, so this is something else to consider.
Many restaurants are offering gift card specials this month for the holidays, so be sure to ask the restaurant if they have any special offers such as receiving a $20 gift card when you purchase a $100 gift card.
First Fridays will earn you some extra points when dining out on these days, however buying restaurant gift cards today is also a good idea.
