One of my favorite parts of a vacation — especially a cruise — is relaxing on a lounge chair while sipping a beverage and reading a book.
E-reader devices and apps such as Kindle now make it easier (and lighter!) to bring a few books with us on trips. (I don’t miss the days of two hardcover books taking up space in my carry-on and causing orthopedic injuries by hauling them through airports!)
Lucky for some of us, Amazon and Chase teamed up for a couple of offers that may save us a few bucks on upcoming book purchases!
Keep in mind you do not need a Kindle e-reader device to access Kindle books. Kindle apps are available for both Android and iOS devices.
Chase Offer: 20% Credit on Kindle Books
The first promotion offers a 20% statement credit (up to $4 maximum) for eligible Kindle eBook purchases charged to your enrolled Chase card. The offer is not valid on Kindle hardware purchases or Kindle Unlimited subscription fees. The offer must be manually added to your eligible Chase card.
The offer expires on February 28, 2023.
Chase Offer: 20% Credit on Kindle Unlimited Subscription
The next offer allows members to earn 20% back on their Kindle Unlimited subscription fees, up to $6 back maximum. The offer must be manually added to your eligible Chase card.
Kindle Unlimited costs $9.99 a month. Subscribers may keep up to 20 books in their Kindle Unlimited library for the ~$10 cost.
Not all books on Amazon participate in Kindle Unlimited. That said, I subscribe to KU and have enjoyed several great biographies, mysteries, short stories, books about writing, self-help titles, and other publications.
This offer is valid one time only and expires on February 28, 2023. The first payment must be made by March 30, 2023. (I read that as sign up for Kindle Unlimited before February 28, enjoy a free 30-day trial, and then let your card be charged for the monthly fee before April.)
Is This a Targeted Offer?
I hold several Chase products: the Chase Freedom Flex℠, Chase Sapphire Reserve®, IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card, The World of Hyatt Credit Card, and legacy IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card (which is no longer available for new applications).
Only one of those cards received the Kindle and Kindle Unlimited offers: my Chase Sapphire Reserve®.
I’m happy that at least one of my Chase Ultimate Rewards® cards was targeted. Chase Ultimate Rewards® are a fairly valuable and versatile points currency.
Plus, my Chase Sapphire Reserve® allows me to apply points at a value of 1.5 cents each when purchasing travel through Chase’s Ultimate Rewards® travel service. For example, 100,000 points would be worth $1,500 in travel. Plus, the card comes with up to $300 in annual statement for eligible travel purchases. It also earns 3X points on eligible travel (after the $300 statement credit is exhausted) and 3X on eligible dining purchases.
Were you targeted for either offer? If so, on which card(s)?
Happy traveling, reading, and saving!
