Update: Triple points on the first Friday of each month is no longer available.
The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card offers double points on dining and travel, which makes it my all around go to card for everyday spend. That being said, up until now Chase’s website hasn’t been very good at breaking down a summary of points earned by transaction. That seems to have changed recently, because now when you go to your activity summary you can see a breakdown of points earned with each transaction.
For example, the below parking transaction in Seattle earned double points (as it should, since that counts as “travel”):
Meanwhile an Indian restaurant I ate at a couple of months ago earned triple points since it was the first Friday of the month, on which Chase offers triple points on dining:
Meanwhile it appears as if the coffee shop I go to all the time isn’t categorized as “dining,” as I haven’t been earning any bonus points:
Anyway, I find this new feature on the Chase website to be super handy, and can only hope it’s expanded to more Chase cards soon.
