With Chase Refer a Friend you can earn up to 50K Ultimate Rewards points by referring friends as new cardholders to a Chase credit card such as the Sapphire Preferred or Ink Plus (my referral links). I noticed these offers had returned when logging into my Chase Account:
But you can also go to the general Chase Refer a Friend Link and enter in your details to see which Chase cards you currently hold are eligible for the referral bonus.
Here are the details:
- Receive 5000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points for each friend referred by the Refer a Friend Link by 9/22/15 who is approved and makes first use of the card by 1/22/16
- Maximum bonus for successfully referring 10 friends is 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points per calendar year across all referral offers
- Allow 6-8 weeks after a new cardmember's first use of the card for bonus points to post to your account
- If a referred friend already has the Chase card or the email address is in the email opt-out database, no email will be sent
- Chase Employees are not eligible for any Refer a Friend bonuses
Here's my Ink Plus Refer a Friends Offer:
And the next screen provides fields to enter friends' email addresses, although as I'll explain below, I do NOT recommend the email option.
If I Already Received 50K Ultimate Rewards Points This Year from a Different Chase Refer a Friend Offer Am I Eligible?
Unfortunately, no--the maximum referral bonus you can receive across all Chase Refer a Friend bonus in a given calendar year is 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points (5000 per each friend successfully referred who uses the card by the deadline date).
That said, if you've received less than 50,000 points this year, you're eligible to receive more points up to the 50,000 maximum this year. Or, if you received Chase Refer a Friend bonuses last year and none this year, you'll be eligible to receive 50,000 points this year across all referral offers.
I Entered in My Last Name, Zip Code and Last 4 Digit of Card Details But Get "Entry Not Recognized"!
Unfortunately not all cards are eligible for the referral bonus; this is a targeted program. Just make sure to try all of your active Chase credit cards to see if any others are eligible.
What if I See the Offer in My Chase Account But Get an Error When I Click on It?
Take a screenshot of the offer that appears in your account and contact Chase, by sending a secure message, asking for help since you see the offer but it's not working.
I Work for JPMorgan Chase; Is That Why This Doesn't Work for Me?
Yes--Chase employees are not eligible for these referral bonuses.
What's the Best Way to Ensure My Family and Friends Receive the Referral Link?
I recommend clicking on the Facebook or Twitter icons to get your unique referral link, instead of relying on the Chase email, which could take a week to reach them (and some have reported never receiving it). Paste your Facebook or Twitter referral link into your own email to the friends you want to refer.
What Are the Best Ways to Use Chase Ultimate Rewards Points?
My favorite ways to use Chase Ultimate Rewards points are transfers to Singapore KrisFlyer to book Singapore Suites on the A380 or Singapore New Business Class; transfers to Korean Air Skypass to book Korean Air First Class; and the occasional top up of a United MileagePlus account or British Airways Executive Club account for a specific redemption.
How Long Does It Take for the Bonus Points to Post After My Friend Successfully Applies for the Card and Uses It?
Terms state to allow 6-8 weeks after the first use of the card.
