    I think it's just a straight 3x, no?

    Was told be the Chase Sapphire rep that until the end of 2013, you get 3 extra points on top of the 2 you get for dining spend. This is only good on the first Friday of the month until the end of 2013.

    If you're right, that's awesome and I've been underestimating this. Though it reads as if it is 3x instead of the usual 2x.

    I do not believe this is accurate. It has been discussed quite a bit and many have had the charges (and points) post in prior months since this benefit was introduced. It was just the regular 3x, not 5x.

    So unless it is starting with the October bill it isn't 5x.

    I have dined out every First Friday since this started, and from reconciling my statements, I can say that it is most indeed a 1x bonus on top of the standard 2x for a total of 3x.

    Don't forget about the 7% dividend! So it's 3.21X

    All of my previous statement closed out with 1 extra point not 3 so I too believe the rep was mistaken

    Really? I was personally informed of this when I first called in to activate my card last month ... I will call again tomorrow to verify!

    I don't believe so. Anything coded as a restaurant in their system should work.

    Yes, really. Lots of evidence counter to the info that one agent provided.

    It's 3X unless they changed it for this month (doubtful)

    +1 with everyone else as well. I've been getting 3x total. Again, unless they changed it for Oct.

    You are correct!

    Made the call this morning ... they apologized for the misinformation & threw in a handful of points into my account.

    the card is a no-brainer, coupled with the Freedom card (5x on Amazon Q4)

    And also attached with the no-AF Ink and I'd be hard pressed to find any purchases that is 1x!

    With all the mis-info CSRs make, we should all have over a kajillion extra points by now ;)
