Chase Ultimate Rewards, Black Friday specials with earning points and sales?

does Chase UR generally have special promotions during black friday regarding points earned from certain stores, as well as prices cut?

 

I'm ramping up my consumption right now, and am curious if I should wait till black friday for more points per dollar spent

I would imagine that Chase would send emails or related offers in the mail first to attract members to use the card or points.  I've received an email a while back about use my UR points on Amazon (100points = $1 on Amazon)

Chase doesn't seem to have such promos. Discover is the only credit card company that seems to run such promos.

Be on the lookout for mailers or emails from other CCs that you carry.  They often will give you additional bonus points or cash for spending at department stores, toy stores, and electronics scores.  The issuers know that we're spending and they want to make money on those fees.
