Chase shows romantic side with Valentine’s Day promotions

Chase shows romantic side with Valentine’s Day promotions

Editor’s Note: Thank you for your interest, this offer expired and is no longer available.

The people who work for credit card companies aren’t universally popular, so it was good to be reminded that the folk in Chase’s credit card division are, at heart, a bunch of romantic old softies. They’ve come up with five (count ’em) promotions and ideas that are designed to make your Valentine’s Day this year go better than ever.

1. Flowers, teddy and chocolates

The first is for Chase Freedom cardmembers. Between now and Feb. 13, these can buy for half price a special Valentine’s Day package comprising:

  • 20 sweetheart tulips with a vase
  • A teddy bear
  • Chocolates

The deal comes in at $29.99, and is offered through ProFlowers.com. Over the same period, Chase Freedom cardholders can also get 20 percent off all purchases from RedEnvelope.com, which is a retailer specializing in gifts.

2. Dinner for two

The company suggests that Chase Sapphire cardmembers should find their ideal restaurant through Zagat, and make a reservation with Open Table through ChaseSapphire.com. They’ll earn two Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent, and that’s double the normal for most purchases.

3. Buy gifts with discounted gift cards

Those who have already chosen gifts from big online retailers such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Best Buy can make significant savings by first getting discounted gift cards from Chase’s Ultimate Rewards Mall. This applies to holders of Chase Sapphire, Ink from Chase and Chase Freedom credit cards.

4. Get a room

If you’re expecting things to hot up as your Valentine’s Day evening progresses, you may be well advised to get a room. And if you have a Hyatt Credit Card from Chase, you might like to choose one of the hotel’s special packages, such as Love Lasts or the Amour Package. If, however, you’re as romantically inept as your blogger, you might prefer to see if there’s an armour package.

Either way, if you stay for 16 nights or more at Hyatt locations between Feb. 1 and Apr. 30 this year, you stand to receive a 55,000-point bonus. So you might as well use Valentine’s Day as an excuse to move further toward that goal. (See? Romantically inept.)

5. A girl’s best friend

Got an Amazon.com Rewards Visa Card from Chase? During February, you can get 20 percent off jewelry and watches in an exclusive deal for cardholders. And you can instantly and easily redeem rewards points for all Amazon products.

Rewards credit cards help make the world go round

Some of these seasonal promotions from Chase could add a certain je ne sais quoi to your Valentine’s Day evening. But even if you don’t have a Chase card, you probably should use your rewards credit cards to satisfy your head as well as your heart. Today, most mainstream credit card companies are offering great deals on many of their products even without special offers.
