Getting Chase Sapphire Preferred's Sign-Up Bonus.

Postby Sazabi » Sun Jun 29, 2014 2:23 pm

I'm very young in terms of Credit (1y/o prior CSP) and the CSP became my 2nd Card due to needing to travel later on the year.

Now I am wondering if by paying my Rent/Cable, etc would count towards my need to spend 3K in the initial 3 Months after opening the card. (Since those are some pretty big numbers aswell...)

My apartment does accept Credit Card payments online and I'd be pretty happy if my Rent/Time Warner bill can go towards the 3K I need to spend.

Would anyone be able to help me in terms of this? Also if there are other ways to hit the Sign-up bonus easily?

And howdy from Austin!

Any purchase will work. I had a friend that needed to charge around 2k and had him give me cash and I charged it on my card lol.
