Chase Refer a Friend 2016: Earn Up to 50K Bonus Ultimate Rewards Points

 

Use Chase Refer a Friend to earn 50K Ultimate Rewards points by referring friends as new cardholders to a Chase credit card such as the 50K Sapphire Preferred and the 60K Ink Plus (my referral links). 

You can also go directly 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 for the Chase Sapphire Preferred Refer a Friend Offer:

  • Chase Sapphire Preferred: Receive 5000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points for each friend referred by the Refer a Friend Link by 2/5/16 who applies by 3/5/16 and makes first use of the card by 6/3/16
  • Refer up to 10 friends
  • 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

 

And here are the details for the Ink Plus Refer a Friend Offer:

  • Ink Plus: Receive 5000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points for each friend referred by the Refer a Friend Link by 1/16/15 who applies by 2/14/16 and makes first use of the card by 5/14/16
  • Refer as many businesses as you want
  • Earn 10,000 Ultimate Rewards points for each business owner you refer who is approved for the Ink Plus and uses the card by 5/14/16
  • Maximum bonus is 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points per calendar year via Refer-A-Business
  • 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 business 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 Business bonuses

FAQ
 
What's the Best Way to Make Sure My Family and Friends Receive My Referral Link?

I suggest clicking on the Twitter or Facebook 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.


Can I Earn Referral Bonuses for Both the Chase Sapphire Preferred and the Ink Plus?

Yes, you can, although it's unclear whether the maximum number of Ultimate Rewards points you can earn is still 50,000 points across all referral offers, or potentially 100,000 points, up to 50K for all Chase Refer a Friend personal cards, and up to 50K for all Ink Plus referrals. The fact that the FAQ for the Ink Plus does specifically allude to "Refer a Business" and that the referral offer is 10,000 points per business successfully referred, vs. 5000 per friend successfully referred to the Chase Sapphire Preferred, make me think these may be considered separate referral programs, each with a 50,000 maximum. I'll updated this post if I find out definitively what the maximum is.


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 more occasionally, transferring a few points to my 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.

Do you have any Chase Refer a Friend bonus offers for your Chase cards?

Just want to let you know I have been reading your blog "quietly" for a couple of years. I used your link for the Citi Thank You Premier 50k card just now and was approved by phone. Hope you will receive a commission for this.
