The Chase Sapphire, Sapphire Preferred and Sapphire Reserve credit cards belong to the Visa network, which means they can be used wherever Visa is accepted. That includes millions of merchants in more than 200 countries and territories. In other words, Chase Sapphire cards give you purchasing power pretty much anywhere in the world that takes plastic (or metal, as the case may be).
Sure, you may find the occasional merchant that has an exclusive deal with one of the other card networks. But it’s very rare. Sam’s Club used to only accept Discover cards, for example. But now they accept cards from all four major networks.
If you’re wondering about where Chase Sapphire rewards points are accepted, the Chase Ultimate Rewards website is the best answer. You should be able to book almost any hotel or flight you want through Chase.
You can also transfer your points at a 1:1 ratio (in 1,000-point increments) to the rewards programs of any of Chase’s 11 travel partners. Depending on the partner, your points might even be worth more if you take this route.
And if you don’t want to use your reward points on travel expenses, you can redeem them directly with Chase for gift cards or a statement credit. You can do this through the Chase website or through their mobile banking app, available for both Apple and Android devices.
Finally, Chase has a deal with Amazon.com that allows you to “Shop with Points” on the popular online retailer. In other words, you can pay with your Sapphire Preferred points rather than charging the transaction to your card. All you have to do is add your Sapphire Preferred Card to your Amazon.com account, and your available points balance will automatically appear.
