People with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card can now get 15,000 bonus points if they refer a friend - and the friend is approved. What's even better is that they can make up to five referrals which would let them bank an extra 75,000 points. For all cardholders it's a great way to get more points, and for new cardholders they can really boost their jumping off point when it comes to earning points.
Especially these days when Chase has upped the sign up bonus for new cardholders to 60,000 reward points once they spend $4,000 during the first three months they have the card. This upgrade gives them 10,000 more points than the previous offer. The annual fee for this card is $95, and it's important to note that it is no longer waived during the first year.
Earning double points with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card
With this card people also earn double points when booking travel, whether they are booking airline tickets, a hotel room, train tickets or getting a taxi.
Double points are also in play when cardholders eat out at restaurants, which include four star restaurants, cafes and fast food joints.
All other purchases get cardholders one point per dollar they spend.
Individuals who are looking to transfer points to one of the participating frequent travel programs that have partnered up with the Ultimate Rewards program can do so at a 1 to 1 ratio.
When redeeming points for travel booked via Chase Ultimate Rewards they also get 25% more in terms of value, meaning that 60,000 points are worth $750. They can book airfare, hotels, car rentals and cruises through Chase Ultimate Rewards.
