First Friday Bonus: 3 Points/$1 for Sapphire Preferred Cardholders

First Friday Bonus 3 Points per $1 Chase Sapphire Preferred

If you’ve resisted the urge to call in sick today, you can make work a little more bearable by earning some bonus points at lunch. On the first friday of the month, Chase Sapphire Preferred cardholders earn an extra point per $1 spent on dining. While this sounds trivial, you can maximize your bonus further by registering your card with a dining rewards program. This can earn you up to an additional 8 points per $1 at participating restaurants, depending on the program you choose to participate in.

Most of these programs will offer you a “first dine” bonus of 300-1,500 points after spending $25-$50 within the first 30 days of signing up. Pick up a gift card at a participating restaurant and you’ll not only earn bonus points on your card, but you’ll pocket up to 1,500 extra points on top of the payout offered per $1 spent.

Chase Freedom cardholders also have it good, earning a flat 5% cash back/5 points per $1 for the entire quarter. This is limited to the first $1,500 spent, but it’s still a nice payout and a reason to consider picking up a Freedom card.
