Chase unveils an additional bonuses for the Sapphire and Freedom credit card signups. You can now get an extra 2,500 Ultimate Rewards points for adding an authorized user when you sign-up for the Chase Freedom and Chase Sapphire credit cards. The authorized user has to make a purchase within 3 months for the bonus 2,500 points. We find this similar to the Chase Sapphire Preferred card that offer 5,000 bonus points for an authorized user.
The links that we provide we receive a referral bonus from. However they do not have this benefit of the 2,500 for adding an AU. You can still use our links and SM Chase to match the offer. If you want to use a direct link you can use this link to guarantee the extra bonus.
This new offer is only valid on new credit card signups. However we would recommend all people who signed up for one of these cards in the last 90 days to try to SM (secure message) Chase to see if they can match them to this offer.
The reason why we don’t write about the Chase Sapphire card is simple. If you are applying for the Sapphire card, you will be better off applying for the Chase Sapphire Preferred. The Sapphire Preferred gives 40,000 (plus 5,000 for an AU). Although it has an annual fee, you can downgrade after the first year to a sapphire (non preferred).
