How to get the best value out of the mobile wallet offer
If you are eager to take advantage of the offer to earn even more rewards on your Chase cards, there are a few things you can do to boost your earnings.
First, do your holiday shopping at stores that accept mobile wallets. Odds are, you are spending a bit more than usual this month thanks to holiday gift shopping and travels. By shopping for your loved ones at stores that accept digital wallet payments, you can give yourself the gift of extra rewards.
If you own an Amazon card, Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Sapphire Reserve, shop your bonus categories this month to boost your overall rewards rate. Whole Foods and many restaurants accept mobile wallet payments, so adding an extra bonus point or percentage cash back to your highest earning categories will get you even more in rewards.
This offer expires on Dec. 31, 2018, so use your mobile wallet for as many payments as possible by the end of the year to boost rewards.
