Yesterday I was one of the first to break the news that the Chase Freedom has a Refer-a-friend bonus that most existing Freedom cardholders are eligible for.

Chase Sapphire Preferred Referral bonus

As I usually do, I started checking my other Chase cards and found that the Chase Sapphire Preferred Referral bonus is also back!  The offer that you’ll get for signing up for the Chase Sapphire Preferred is below:


So you’ll get 40,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards if you spend $4,000 in the first 3 months of opening the account.  Note that it is an increased signing requirement (it used to be only $3,000 in spend).

There is an annual fee of $95, which is waived the first year.

Chase refer-a-friend link

If you already have a Chase Sapphire card like I do, you can check to see if you are also eligible for a Chase refer a friend bonus at


They have done this before with other Chase cards, and it works the same.  You can get your own “affiliate” link if you are eligible.  I’ve found that the easiest way to get your own Chase refer a friend URL is to click on the Share Twitter or Share Facebook link which will give a popup with your link.

For each person that signs up with your link, you will earn 5000 Ultimate Rewards points, with a maximum of 10 referrals or 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points. Fine print states:

You will receive 5,000 bonus points for each friend you refer through this Refer A Friend site by 1/31/2015 (up to 10) who is approved and makes a First Use of the card by 5/31/2015. Maximum bonus point accumulation for this offer is 50,000 bonus points. We may provide you with future opportunities to earn bonus points by referring your friends to Chase Sapphire Preferred. You may earn bonus points up to the stated maximum for each offer, however, please note that if you take advantage of multiple opportunities within one calendar year that the maximum number of bonus points that can be awarded from all referral offers is 50,000 per calendar year.

There are also a few other cards that are offering current refer a friend bonuses.
