Chase is offering some new temporary benefits for the Sapphire Preferred and the Sapphire Reserve. These new bonus earning rates will last from: 7/1/2020 through 9/30/2020.

Tip: If you haven’t already, I would suggest that you use WalletFlo to keep track of all of these changing bonus categories that will update automatically for you!

Gas station bonus

  • 5X on the Sapphire Reserve
  • 3X on the Sapphire Preferred

There will be a $1,500 spending limit for the duration of the three month period. So with the Reserve, you can earn up to 7,500 points and with the Preferred you can earn up to 4,500 points.

Gas currently will trigger the $300 travel credit on the Sapphire Reserve as well.

Streaming services

  • 10X on the Sapphire Reserve
  • 5X on the Sapphire Preferred

You can earn these bonus earning rates on the following streaming services:

  • Disney+
  • Hulu
  • ESPN+
  • Netflix
  • Sling
  • Vudu
  • Fubo TV
  • Apple Music
  • SiriusXM
  • Pandora
  • Spotify
  • YouTube TV

There will be a $1,500 spending limit for the duration of the three month period. So with the Reserve you can earn up to 15,000 points and with the Preferred you can earn up to 7,500 points.

It’s nice that you can earn extra bonus points on streaming but remember you can get a streaming credit with the Platinum Card up to $20 per month. See the other benefits going on.

Instacart

  • 5X on the Sapphire Reserve
  • 3X on the Sapphire Preferred

The limit for this category is $3,000 but you can also get a $50 statement credit for an Instacart express membership.

Instacart allows you to get groceries delivered to your residence but you can also pick them up from the store.

Instacart Express will offer you free delivery (on orders over $35), order savings, and reduced service fees. It has a $99 annual membership fee so this is a pretty nice discount.

If you are paying for it on a monthly basis, you will get a $9.99 credit for up to $50 total.

You do not have to do anything to trigger the bonus category earnings or to trigger the credit.
