Here’s a quick and easy way for Chase cardholders whose cards earn Ultimate Rewards points to earn miles. Stamps.com is offering 2,500 Ultimate Rewards (UR) points for new accounts. I wanted to go through this process myself before sharing it with any of you to make sure it worked… and it did!
The gist of the process is you sign up for a new trial account at Stamps.com through Chase UR Shopping Mall. There is a special offer right now that includes a FREE 4 week trial and $5 in postage. Not only will you get the 2,500 points for free but you have $5 in postage to actually use.
Here’s the full walkthrough on how to get this great deal:
Stamps.com will then mail you your Starter Kit which includes CD software, coupons for [unnecessary] future postage, and a sheet of labels that you print postage on. Do not order the 5 lb. shipping scale that they will offer you (unless you actually want it) because you will be charged shipping.
Once you get your points credited (they should appear on your next statement), you can simply call 1-888-434-0055 to close your account (link here). If you don’t want to continue using the service, make sure you cancel your membership before month #2 because you will surely be charged $15.99. Don’t forget to use the $5 free postage you got at sign-up first! You might as well.
There you have it, 2,500 UR points for a few minutes of setup and a phone call to cancel… doesn’t get much better than that! Please enjoy and spread this deal around!
