Written by Charlie

The awesome 80,000 point Chase Sapphire Preferred offer is still going strong – and now available through personal referrals as well! Find out about the offer and how to get your own link!

The incredible Chase Sapphire Preferred offer of 80,000 points has been around for a little bit now but is now available through Chase Refer a Friend as well. Great news for anyone that has this card and wants to earn some points from telling friends! Plus, I will even let you leave your links below in the comments (and will cycle some through the main link).

Awesome Chase Sapphire Preferred 80,000 Point Offer – Through Referrals

Here are the details on the new Chase Sapphire Preferred offer:

First of all, while the annual fee of $95 is normally waived, this increased offer does not waive it. That means you are getting 20,000 more points than the regular offer at a cost of $95. That is still a huge steal for most but keep that in mind.

Getting the Bonus

Next, to get the 80,000 Ultimate Reward points, you will need to spend $4,000 in the first 3 months of card membership. That will unlock all of those valuable points that can let you do things like book travel, transfer to travel partners, or use the points to reimburse yourself for things you have already bought (current categories expire this month – new categories to come).

The Points

This is definitely an incredible offer for what is easily one of the best travel cards to get and hold. It comes with things like primary rental insurance when you rent a car (most cards only offer secondary insurance so it picks up if your regular insurance doesn’t cover something) as well as the ability to transfer points out to other travel partners. Also, it has Trip delay insurance (up to $500 per covered claim), trip cancellation insurance (up to $10,000 per person per covered claim, max $20,000 per trip), and baggage delay for when you start traveling again.

  • Trip delay insurance benefits, up to $500 per covered claim
  • Trip cancelation insurance benefits, up to $10,000 per person per covered claim $20,000 per trip max.
  • Baggage delay

Here are those travel partners:

Airline Travel Partners

  • Aer Lingus, AerClub
  • British Airways Executive Club
  • Flying Blue AIR FRANCE KLM
  • Iberia Plus
  • JetBlue TrueBlue
  • Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer
  • Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards®
  • United MileagePlus®
  • Virgin Atlantic Flying Club

Hotel Travel Partners

  • IHG® Rewards Club
  • Marriott Bonvoy

Earning More Points

The Chase Sapphire Preferred has these regular earning bonus categories:

  • Airfare – 2X points
  • Car Rental – 2X points
  • Hotels – 2X points
  • Dining – 2X points
  • Other Travel – 2X points
  • Lyft – 5X points

Chase has also added other bonus categories during this time of non-travel but they are due to expire September 30.

  • 5X points for Streaming Services
  • 3X points at Gas Stations
  • 3X points for Instacart
  • Up to $50 in Instacart Express credits

By the way, that “Streaming Services” also covers things like Apple cloud storage fees and movies/tv shows.

The Referral Offers

If you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred card yourself, you can go to this Chase website to get your own referral link. You will earn 15,000 points for each successful conversion, up to 75,000 points in a year. They must apply by November 7, 2020 for you to get the points!

Bottom Line

If you are eligible (you cannot have the Chase Sapphire Preferred now and cannot have received a bonus on the Preferred or the Reserve cards in the last 48 months) and are under the wire on “Chase 5/24” (you have not opened 5 or more new card accounts with any banks in the last 24 months), this is definitely one of the best card offers around right now.

I have held my Chase Sapphire Preferred for years and it has been a great card for me. With a card that can give at least $1,000 in straight up value, it definitely deserves a look!
