Chase Sapphire Preferred® with Ultimate Rewards® Program Agreement

points total you earn for each $1 spent on travel purchases booked using your card through the Ultimate Rewards program.

· You can book travel online at chase.com/ultimaterewards or call the number on the back of your card to reach the Chase Travel Center.
· If only a portion of your Ultimate Rewards travel booking is paid using your card for travel purchases and the remaining is paid using points, only the portion paid with your card will qualify for earning points.
› 3 points for each $1 spent on purchases in the following rewards categories: dining at restaurants; select streaming services; online grocery (excluding Target®, Walmart® and wholesale clubs). You may see “3X” in marketing materials to refer to the 3 points you earn for each $1 spent in these categories.
› 1 point for each $1 spent on all other purchases. You may see “1X” in marketing materials to refer to the 1 point you earn for each $1 spent on all other purchases.
› 10% anniversary points bonus: Each account anniversary year, you’ll earn bonus points that equal 10% of your total spend in points from purchases made with your card during the previous account anniversary year at a rate of 1 point for each $1 spent. You may see “10% Anniversary Points Boost” in marketing materials to refer to the 10% anniversary points bonus you’ll earn each account anniversary year. If your account open date is before August 15, 2021, bonus points will be awarded based on your total spend in points from purchases made with your card that post starting on August 15, 2021 through the end of your account anniversary year, and then each 12 months after that. To qualify for the 10% anniversary points bonus each account anniversary year, your account must be open and not in default, as defined in your Cardmember Agreement, at the time of fulfillment. Please allow 2-3 billing cycles after each account anniversary year you qualify, for the 10% anniversary points bonus to post to your account. · “account anniversary year” means the year beginning with your account open date through the anniversary of your account open date, and each 12 months after that. - For example, if you have a total spend of $25,000 on purchases made with your card during your previous account anniversary year, you will earn a 10% anniversary points bonus of 2,500 points

after your account anniversary year.
· The 10% anniversary points bonus will be based on purchases that post to your account during the previous account anniversary year. - For example, if you make a purchase during the current anniversary year, but the merchant does not post the transaction until after the current account anniversary year ends, that purchase will be included as part of your total spend in points in the next year’s 10% anniversary points bonus.
• Rewards Categories: Merchants who accept Visa/Mastercard credit cards are assigned a merchant code, which is determined by the merchant or its processor in accordance with Visa/Mastercard procedures based on the kinds of products and services they primarily sell. We group similar merchant codes into categories for purposes of making rewards offers to you. Please note: › We make every effort to include all relevant merchant codes in our rewards categories. However, even though a merchant or some of the items that it sells may appear to fit within a rewards category, the merchant may not have a merchant code in that category. When this occurs, purchases with that merchant won’t qualify for rewards offers on purchases in that category.
› Purchases submitted by you, an authorized user, or the merchant through third-party payment accounts, mobile or wireless card readers, online or mobile digital wallets, or similar technology will not qualify in a rewards category if the technology is not set up to process the purchase in that rewards category. For more information about Chase rewards categories, see chase.com/RewardsCategoryFAQs.
Ways to earn bonus points
• We may offer you ways to earn bonus points through the program, such as Shop through Chase® or special promotions. You’ll find out more about the number of bonus points you can earn and any other terms at the time of the offer. The additional terms will be part of this agreement.
Other information about the earning and availability of points
• Points are earned at the close of each monthly billing cycle, based on the purchases made during that billing cycle, plus any bonus points posted during that billing cycle, but minus any returns or refunds. If you have more returns or refunds than points earned from purchases or bonuses, then points will be deducted from your total point balance and may result in a negative point balance.
• You’ll see points you’ve earned on chase.com and on your monthly card billing statement. Please note that on your card billing statement you’ll see the additional points earned from Ultimate Rewards program travel purchases separately from the points earned in the travel rewards category.

Points are worth 25% more when you redeem for travel than if you redeem for cash through the program.
