We have written before about Chase’s refer-a-friend program which we use to earn extra points when a close friend or family member applies for a new Chase credit card. The list of cards that offer a Chase refer-a-friend bonus keeps changing so we thought it was time for an updated post.

There are several Chase credit cards currently offering a referral bonus for referring those credit cards to family or friends if they apply and are approved using your referral link.

How Chase Refer a Friend Works

For anyone not familiar, Chase offers the opportunity to earn points for referring its credit cards through Chase refer-a-friend at chase.com/referafriend. The way Chase refer-a-friend works is that will you receive bonus points (usually 10,000 or 20,000 points depending on the card) for each person who applies and is approved for a credit card using your referral link. You can invite as many people as you want but there is a maximum cap of how many bonus points per calendar year that you can earn total for each card.

How To Generate and Share Your Chase Referral Link

There are a few ways to get your Chase referral link which you can then share with friends or family including: 1) visit https://www.chase.com/referafriend, 2) through the Chase mobile app, and 3) click on banners when on chase.com.

To create your Chase referral link visit chasereferafriend.com and enter your last name, zip code and last 4 digits of your card to see if your card is eligible for a referral bonus at that time. If your Chase card is eligible you will generate a referral link which you can copy and share with your friends and also the option to share by email.

Email is the slowest option – it will take up to 7 days for them to receive the email. If you choose email you must provide your friend’s first name and email address and they will be sent an email from the person referring them & Chase.  The email will also mention the amount of the sign up bonus and an application deadline.

(Warning: If your friends apply for a lot of credit cards they might not be approved. Most Chase cards are subject to the Chase 5/24 rule for credit card approvals meaning applicants will not be easily approved (if at all) if they have applied for more than 5 cards from any bank in the last 24 months. See this post for more information about the Chase 5/24 rule.)
