Chase Ultimate Rewards has quickly claimed the top spot on the list of my favorite reward programs. The Visa card is accepted everywhere. They transfer to 2 of my favorite programs – United/Continental and Hyatt. Their rewards mall posts bonus points in about 2 weeks vs. others that take almost 2 months.
The one problem I used to have with Chase, however, was that there was no way to see what purchases were in what exact category. I complained that American Express had a better detail summary of monthly purchases and what categories they were. Today, my coworker reminded me that the Chase BLUEPRINT feature shows you this. Here’s how it works:
So there you go; now we’ll know which purchases we will receive 2x points for when using my Sapphire Preferred credit card. If the transaction shows up in the proper category (Dining and Travel/Transit/etc.), you can be sure you’ll receive the bonus points for it from Chase. I hope this helps everyone who, like me, wants to be on top of the points they are owed from Chase. Good luck in the pursuit of points!
