$20 Cash Back/2,000 Points at eBags.com with Chase Pay and Chase Freedom/Freedom Unlimited/Sapphire Preferred Card. Details here.

Similar to the special Walmart and Best Buy Chase Pay promotions we shared a few weeks ago, you can now get 2,000 Chase points (worth $20 in cash back at a bare minimum) when you spend $20 at eBags and use Chase Pay to check out. Terms and conditions here and here.

At a base level, if you find something for around $20ā€”like this TRTL travel pillow, or these packing cubesā€”and use this promotion, youā€™ll almost be getting your purchase for free.

But if you have either a Sapphire Preferred or Sapphire Reserve card, the points you earn from this promotion can be used for travel rather than cash back, meaning they could be worth a lot more than $20. For example the Sapphire Reserve allows you to book travel directly at a rate of 1.5 cents per point, making this promotion worth a minimum of $30 in travel. And if you find a really good partner redemption (like I did for my trip to Hawaii), it could be worth a lot more.

Just be sure to hit the Chase Pay button at checkout, and use either a Chase Freedom, a Freedom Unlimited, or a Sapphire Preferred card to pay. It doesnā€™t appear that the Sapphire Reserve is eligible, though once you get the points, you can transfer them into your Reserve account for travel redemption purposes.

Update: If anyone was feeling uneasy about trying this, I did it myself the day we originally posted this article, and have confirmed that it works:

It worked!
