    • First reload – collect 125 bonus stars
    • Second reload – collect 275 bonus stars
    • Third reload – collect 475 bonus stars
  • Offer ends 12/12/2018

How do you earn more Ultimate rewards

Remember that when you use Chase Pay with your Chase Freedom in the 4th Quarter, you get 5% cash back. Here’s the article I wrote a few weeks ago. There’s still time to sign up.

*EDITED* – one of our readers, Vet&Banker, suggested Be sure that Chase Pay is being used to reload. He chose Chase Pay as the method of payment, and even after making that choice, it reverted by to another method of payment.

Free drinks. More Ultimate Reward points. Why not? So before you reload, make sure you use your Chase Pay. Good luck.
