Yes, Chase Sapphire Reserve gas purchases, along with any other purchases, get you 60,000 points once you’ve spent $4,000 within the first 3 months. Gas purchases will also count toward earning you Annual Travel Credit. A statement credit of up to $300 will be applied to your account as reimbursement for eligible travel purchases and, up to December 31st 2021, gas station and grocery store purchases count as well.
Aside from the initial bonus and the Annual Travel Credit, gas purchases don’t qualify for bonus points, unfortunately, because they aren’t part of the travel or dining category. Gas is an everyday purchase, according to Chase. So you’ll earn just the standard 1 point / $1 spent on gas purchases, while things like airfare, hotels, cruises and taxis get you 3 points / $1 (once you’ve earned the Annual Travel Credit). You also get 3 points / $1 on dining, including eligible delivery services and takeout.
Here’s what Chase Sapphire Reserve gas purchases get you:
Initial spending bonus: You get 60,000 points for spending $4,000 (gas purchases included) in the first 3 months from account opening.
Annual Travel Credit: You get a statement credit of up to $300 as reimbursement for travel purchases and up to December 31st 2021, gas station and grocery store purchases also count toward earning you travel credit.
1 point / $1: Gas purchases, along with any purchase outside the travel or dining categories will earn you 1 point / $1.
You don’t need to look too far for extra bonus points on your gas purchases. The Chase Freedom Flex℠ offers 5%, up to a preset amount spent per quarter, in rotating bonus categories that require activation. Gas is regularly featured as one of those categories.
Plus, if you’re willing to consider other issuers, you’ll find plenty of cards with lasting bonus rewards on gas. One of the best cards for gas rewards is the Citi Premier® Card, which gives 3 points / $1 spent on gas and other categories.
