About Rapid Rewards®

As a Rapid Rewards® Member, you earn points by flying or spending with our partners and can use them how and when you want. Plus, if you’re short on points, you can always purchase more to get that reward you’ve been eyeing.
Booking a vacation without worrying about blackout dates. That’s Transfarency.®

Program overview

The Rapid Rewards® program is designed around a simple concept – make earning reward flights faster and easier. Whether you’re earning points or redeeming for a flight, nothing should come between you and your favorite destination.

  • Unlimited reward seats.

    Say Yes to reward seats on days ending in “y”. That’s Transfarency®.

  • No blackout dates.

    No blackout dates means your choices and possibilities for travel are wide open.

  • Your points don't expire.



  • Earning points is easy.

    Rapid Rewards® makes it easy to earn points you can use for reward flights to go anywhere we fly. Not only will you earn points on flights, you can also earn points on everyday purchases with our partners.


  • Redeem for flights and more.

    With the More Rewards program, Rapid Rewards® Credit Cardmembers can use their points for gift cards, merchandise, international flights on global carriers, hotel stays, rental cars, and exclusive Cardmember experiences.

    With Chase Pay Yourself Back®, Rapid Rewards® Credit Cardmembers may redeem Points for a statement credit on eligible purchases made at select merchants or against the prior payment of your annual fee. For more information click here.
