To see the latest, updated offer on this card and others, please visit this page.

Don’t forget about the United Club pass giveaway! There are still a few hours left and the odds are about 1-in-10 that you will win one right now! Go here for the giveaway!

A couple of months ago, I wrote about the nice offer Chase had where you could earn 5,000 Ultimate Reward points for every person who signed up for a Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Freedom card through your referral link. The limit is 50,000 points from such an offer in one year, so you would want to max that out before December 31 (even though the offer runs through January 31, 2014). This way, you are prepared for another, similar promo that they might run for 2014.

Even though I had already written about this, I was reminded of it when I checked my Ultimate Reward balance and found it to be significantly higher than I expected. I checked and found that some of my referrals have already come in! It took about 5 weeks from when the people first signed up (the clock actually starts from their first purchase, so it is really about a 4 week timeframe). It was nice to see a little extra in the account and reminded me to get back out there and try to max it out! If you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Freedom, head on over to the Chase Refer a Friend website and get going! If you can get friends and family to sign up soon (they will receive the same offer that exists elsewhere – 40,000 UR points after spending $3,000 on the Chase Sapphire Preferred, for example), you should still get the points before the United and Hyatt devaluations kick in. Get referring!

Below are the details from my previous post to help you with the process:

Earn 5,000 Ultimate Reward Points

Here is what to do:

1) Go to this chase link and enter your LAST NAME, your ZIP CODE registered to your card, and the LAST FOUR DIGITS OF YOUR CARD

5,000 Ultimate Reward Points

Enter your information to see your referral offer and refer others

2) Enter the e-mail addresses of those you choose to refer for this offer. Also look at the bottom to confirm what you referral bonus is

5,000 Ultimate Reward Points

Enter the e-mail addresses that you wish to refer the card to

3) Follow-up with your friends and family to remind them of how great a deal the Chase Sapphire Preferred is! They will receive 40,000 Ultimate Reward points after spending $3,000 in 3 months. You will receive 5,000 Ultimate Reward points after they have made their first purchase with the new card.

This is a great offer and gives you a chance to earn up to 50,000 Ultimate Reward points without applying for a credit card! This promo runs through January 31, 2014, so get moving to sign-up everyone you know! Also, in the fine print it says you are only eligible to receive 50,000 Ultimate Reward points per calendar year from promos. If you do really well with this, chances are good they will send you another offer. All the more reason to get those people signed up this year to make sure you are eligible for another 50,000 points next year. Have fun!
