Common Questions about categories/merchants.
Q. What determines whether a merchant falls within a particular rewards category?
A. Merchants who accept Visa/MasterCard credit cards are assigned a merchant code based on the kinds of products and services they sell. Chase groups similar merchant codes into categories for purposes of making rewards offers to you. Chase makes every effort to include all relevant merchant codes in its listed categories. However, even though a merchant or the items that it sells may appear to fit within a listed category, the merchant may not have a merchant code that falls within that category. Therefore, purchases with that merchant will not qualify for the stated rewards offer on category purchases.
Q. What types of merchants are in the Select Department Stores category?
A. Select department stores are the stores that are listed on the
Select Department stores
list. These stores have multiple departments that may sell general lines of goods and services; for example: apparel, home furnishings, furniture, electronics, cosmetics and housewares. Each department usually has a separate checkout counter.
Q. What are examples of the exclusions from the Select Department Store category?
A. Membership warehouses, Discount stores, Electronics stores such as Best Buy and h.h.gregg, General Merchandise and Variety stores, Walmart, Target, and Select Department Store gift card purchases made at locations other than the Select Department Stores, are excluded from the Select Department Store category and will not earn bonus rewards.
The listed merchants are in no way affiliated with Chase, nor are the listed merchants considered sponsors or co-sponsors of this program. All trademarks are the property of their respective owners. We do not determine whether merchants correctly identify and bill transactions as being made in each category. However, we do reserve the right to determine which purchases qualify for bonus rewards.
