Chase and Tock Expand Relationship to Bring a World of Culinary Experiences Right to Cardmembers’ Fingertips with the Flexibility to Pay with Points
WILMINGTON, DEL Feb 04, 2020 Beginning later this year, Tock’s reservation platform will be seamlessly integrated with the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal and cardmembers will be the first to have the option to redeem points directly for dining bookings.
Chase and Tock today announced a new chapter in their growing relationship to integrate Tock’s leading dining reservation platform into Chase Ultimate Rewards®. Beginning later this year, Tock’s network of restaurants, wineries, and culinary pop-ups across 200 cities and 30 countries worldwide will be easily accessible to Chase Sapphire®, Freedom® and Ink® cardmembers through 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, with the unique option to redeem Ultimate Rewards towards any restaurant offering prepaid experiences. The new offerings will add to the diverse suite of travel, shopping and experiential redemption and earn capabilities offered today to millions of Chase cardmembers through Ultimate Rewards.
“With Ultimate Rewards we aim to give our cardmembers options to connect with the things they love, along with the flexibility to unlock more value with points,” said Lisa Walker, Managing Director of Chase Ultimate Rewards. “We know that our cardmembers are passionate about amazing dining experiences, and we look forward to working with Tock to bring new and unique access for Chase cardmembers.”
Chase and Tock established a relationship in 2018 and currently offer 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 resulting in the first digital dining program designed to benefit both cardmembers and culinary business owners. Hospitality businesses on Tock’s platform will be able to easily create experiences and instantly present them to cardmembers through the dedicated Ultimate Rewards dining tab. Additionally, Tock and Chase will collaborate with world-renowned Chefs and culinary tastemakers who are part of the Tock ecosystem to curate new experiences around the world for Chase cardmembers.
“The Tock partnership with Chase instantly creates a dining rewards program unlike anything else, making it simple to earn and redeem rewards for truly great, uniquely delicious culinary experiences,” said Tock CEO Nick Kokonas. “With a cornerstone in the hospitality industry, Tock and Chase ensure that this is also positive for the businesses. It’s a true win-win.”
Chase and Tock will reveal more details on the capabilities offered to cardmembers in the coming months.
