Chase to Introduce Points Bookings for High-End Restaurants, Bars and Wineries

Chase has a relationship with Tock, a leading dining reservation platform. Now Chase has announced that it will integrate Tock even further. Tock’s network has restaurants, wineries, and culinary pop-ups across 200 cities and 30 countries worldwide. Starting later in 2020, it will be easily accessible to Chase Sapphire®, Freedom® and Ink® cardmembers. The expanded Chase and Tock partnership will provide a new dedicated dining page within the Chase Ultimate Rewards platform and the Chase Mobile App.

Cardmembers will have the ability to book reservations as well as once in a lifetime culinary experiences. They will be able to redeem Ultimate Rewards towards any restaurant offering prepaid experiences. Eligible Chase cardholders with have the following options for Tock bookings:

  • Use Ultimate Rewards points
  • Pay with cash
  • Pay with cash + points

There is no word yet on what value you will get when redeeming Chase Ultimate Rewards points this way. Chase and Tock will reveal more details on the capabilities offered to cardmembers in the coming months, as per the press release.

This Chase and Tock partnership was first established in 2018 and currently offers Chase credit and debit cardmembers exclusive access to select reservations on Tock. Tock’s platform integration with Ultimate Rewards will expand on these offerings by connecting restaurants directly with Chase customers.

  1. Chase has offered me point redemptions on several Tock events for at least a year now. I never took them up on it, though, because the value was so poor (don’t recall exact value).

  2. I like this idea in principle, but we’ll see what the valuation is like. I’ve used Tock a few times in the past couple of years, though twice I booked through an Amex Platinum Concierge. I no longer have an Amex Plat, so those purchases go onto my CSR instead!
