If you’re not one of the folks that’s completely snowed in, then today is the day to go out to eat. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner — since the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card earns 3 points per dollar on dining.
It’s the monthly ‘First Friday’ triple miles on dining bonus.
It’s also a great day to buy any gift certificates from your favorite restaurants as well! I believe I’ve only written about this once before, more than 8 months ago when the benefit was first introduced, so it seemed worth a reminder in the new year.
I do like the capitalized ‘First Friday,’ that makes the day sound almost religious.
Of course on days that aren’t the First Friday of the month, the card earns double points on dining still so as my grandfather used to say those days ‘shouldn’t be a total loss’.
