You may be able to use the Chase Sapphire Reserve travel credit for gift cards if this purchase is classified as travel by the merchant. That’s because this credit only applies to transactions that have the travel merchant code.
Airlines, hotels and other travel providers will have the travel code, but they often sell their gift cards through third-party providers that do not have that code. So, it would be best to contact the travel provider or gift card seller ahead of time to see if they categorize gift cards as travel purchases.
What you should know about the Chase Sapphire Reserve travel credit:
Keep in mind that there is a long list of travel purchases that will always count toward the Chase Sapphire Reserve $300 travel credit. Those include airfare, hotel bookings, cruises, taxi and bus fares, tolls, parking garage fees, and more.
