Here’s A Chase Offer I’m Never Going To Use

by joeheg

I’ve often complained about how Chase offers aren’t very useful. With limited value and restrictions placed on them, I’ve never thought they were worth the effort.  So imagine my dismay when Chase comes out with a decent offer, but it’s one that I’m never going to use.

Earn 20% back on your Chick-fil-A purchase, with a $30.00 maximum.

We’re not ones to eat fast food regularly. Despite that, for a time we would enjoy a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich and some waffle fries. That was, until about 15 years ago, when a dear friend explained why, no matter how much we liked the food, eating there was hugely offensive to him, his boyfriend, and many others.

Over time, in an effort to change their reputation, the brand owners have changed where they make some of their corporate donations. However they’ve still made no change in their personal positions about the equality of all people. Until they do and use their money to repair the damage they’ve done for decades, I’m still not going to buy their chicken sandwiches, even if I can save 20%.

And just to make the point that Chase Offers aren’t worth anything, how many nuggets are your buying to spend $150 at Chick-fil-A on a single purchase to max out this offer?

Gift card in store for $150 seems pretty straightforward to maximize this. I don’t see even a terms exclusion on it like you see on Amex so this is actually one of the more potentially valuable Chase Offers I have seen in awhile (can’t remember last time I saw a 20%+ with a max value over $10). They do seem to be ramping them up on their higher annual fee cards particularly to be more than $2-$5 value at time and across companies that are more broadly applicable I believe than one specific restaurant like a lot have been (chevrolet service offer, a Microsoft one, lowes, etc.)

Sure. I could do that and even resell the card for little profit. I’m just not going to give them my money.

LOVE Chick-fil-A and their stance for conservative values. I will continue to support them and eat their awesome spicy chicken sandwiches. But seriously, who care about yours or my politics? There are more worthy things to write about– likes miles and points.

I have my reasons. You have yours. And this was about points, and the reason I’m not going to use this offer.

Thank you for bringing this up. I am totally on your side and amazed how many people are unaware of the history of this company and their stand.

I’m more about the people who know, should care and choose to ignore it for some sweet iced tea.

Thumbs up. As consumers, we can vote with our wallet. And I appreciate the sentiment. I saw this offer too, but will not take advantage of it.

Please remove yourself from Boarding Area. If there is way to filter you from the Boarding Area RSS feed due to pointless political drama. I subscribe to Boarding Area, and not you.

joeheg October 29, 2020 - 2:18 pm

I choose not to eat at Chick-fil-A. You can choose not to read our posts but we’re staying on Boarding Area.

Well I doubt they appreciate you using Boarding Area’s travel focus audience to amplify your unwanted political point of view (I don’t care what it is, it’s unwanted in a travel section).

The truly sad part is that the two of you actually get to vote.

It continues to amaze me that you bloggers continue to inject politics into your paycheck. I’ll be certain to “vote as well” and move on from this pathetic blog.

Just found the offer available on one of my cards and added it! Thanks for the tip! I don’t check my Chase Offers too often.

joeheg October 29, 2020 - 2:18 pm

I’m glad you’re able to take advantage.

They aren’t anti-anything. They have said they support the family unit, something sadly lacking with too many companies who loudly tout diversity only to avoid criticism from the left. They hire LGBTQ, will serve anyone anytime and have the best trained and most courteous staff I’ve ever encountered. Grow up.

Long ago added SAT to the no-fly list for discriminating against Chick-fil-A at the airport. Sounds like your buddies sort through their buckets of chicken to pick out and eat just the left wings!
