How To Check Merchant Categories with Chase Ultimate Rewards
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!
