Chase has a fantastic referral program. They give you (the current cardholder) the average of 5,000 miles or points for every friend/family member that you refer to the card (providing they apply and use the card once). It gives great incentive to their every day customers to get the word out about the cards and the benefits that exist.

Chase has gone all out this time with a host of cards available in the referral program. If you have any of these cards, this is a great way to bulk up on your miles and points while giving friends and family a chance to get in on the action (of course, if you do not have some of these cards, I would love to refer you!:)

Summary

There are a few important things to remember – one is that the referral offer may not be the best offer. For example, the Chase United card has a better offer if you follow the steps in this post. For the Chase Ink Plus, you may be able to get the annual fee waived the first year if you apply in a Chase branch. Just remember about that.

The last thing to remember is this – the max on one of these offers is the 50,000 point/mile level in a calendar year. That means that if another offer for one of these cards comes out later this year, you will not be able to receive any additional miles/points if you maxed out one of these already. For instance, if you get the max on the Chase Ink Plus and another referral offer comes out in October, you will not be able to get any more because you maxed out the 50,000 point limit in a calendar year.

Please, feel free to leave your e-mail address in the comments if you have any of these referrals (or others) as well. This way, you can have a shot at earning some miles and points through this post as well!
