Title: Chase Sapphire Reserve BENEFITS master thread
Post by: dovy2 on September 02, 2016, 12:12:36 AM
Click Here (http://o1.qnsr.com/cgi/r?;n=203;c=1649873;s=7273;x=7936;f=201801021148170;u=j;z=TIMESTAMP;src=640117;) to get more details on this card and compare to other cards!

Being that the other thread is mainly about signing up and getting approved, I feel the need for a thread to discuss the many benefits is the card, and how it boils down to us (think pggm).

I'll start by asking (possibly already discussed, but way too hard to find amongst all the other stuff):

1. Is it a given that the higher 1.5 point redemption will apply to all ur points one has, or they will keep them separate?

2. Cashing out the $300 as easy as Barclay card, or something else necessary?

As Dan posted a screenshot in the comments on one of his posts, ALL points get the 1.5 redemption. As stated in a few posts that with the quarterly Freedom bonuses you'll end up with 7.5 on the dollar.

1. Dan already posted somewhere in that thread that you even before he got the card he was able to move points from other UR cards on his account to the CSR account and redeem at the 1.5.

2. This seems to be easier because chase has a broader definition of travel and the credits are automatic (CMIIW). In terms of things like refundables I'm not sure because I believe I saw on the Ritz thread, someone used it for upgrades (the Ritz credits are only for incidentals) on a refundable flight and when they cancelled the flight Chase clawed back the credits.

I thought he was referring to the A+, totally forgot about the gold card.

But should be easier, covers more categories, and it's automatic. No personal experience though.

By A+, I assume he was referring to the classic way of cashing out A+ points. I haven't heard any data points yet.

My wife just got her plastic card. We don't have any travel expenses until early 2017 and I'd like to get that credit ASAP. People said the we could get the $250 airline credit on the Prestige by buying refundable tickets. Any DP on that method for Chase?

Wouldn't you end up paying a fee for paying by CC (which is silly considering you can hit 300 without having to pay fees easily)?

Not possible, and if the spend requirement is reached less then a week before the statement closes, the posting of the points will get delayed until the next statement. So I don't think it's smart to change the statement to close sooner.

Yup, though you can always dispute it with the CB's and tell them you're no longer an AU and they'll remove it.

called Chase sapphire number and the $100 every 5 years is only allowed once, regardless of the number of AU's on the card.

You should be able to get your Priority Pass account number from either Chase or Priority Pass CSRs. Once you have that you get a one-time temporary password from PP by calling CS. Then you can use the mobile app on either Android or Apple and get a virtual electronic card after creating your online profile. Many if not most of the Priority Pass lounges take this, however, some do require the physical hard card.

It technically seems so. Although that doesn't mean you won't get flagged and be shut down . And we'd probably have to wait for '17 for a possible proper DP anyway.

Just confirmed with 2 reps that if you don't have your PP with you Chase will reimburse you for a day pass twice a year
Needs to be a PP lounge and needs to be a day pass

How does booking travel through the Chase website to get 1.5 compare to Expedia or other travel websites?

If I book travel through the Chase website and subsequently cancel without penalty do I get the point back or an actual monetary credit on my credit card? Tnx.

Any reason why a quick $300 EZ-Pass one time payment wouldn't work? I see on the EZ-Pass website you can make a one time payment. Seems like the easiest way to do a quick travel spend if you're not planning any travel for the rest of the year.

Wondering about this as well. What happens to cancelled hotel reservations? I'd guess they would deposit your points back in your account but I'm not sure. The same question applies to the Citi Thank You points.

Tnx and Tnx! Good to know what to expect.

Combining this with the Freedom unlimited is a nice way to get 2.25 but cashing out would be a pain. The ability to transfer to partners though, makes that combo a no brainer IMHO. Even for those that like cash back.

I sort of split my spending between CB and reward cards. Now I think typical spending will be done on the Freedom unlimited unless I need a warranty (Amex) or it's something in a bonus category with another card.

I posted this in the main CSR thread but I figured it was worth mentioning here as an alert.

It appears that EZ-Pass (at least the NY one) no longer codes their charges as travel. I had a charge on the 10/29 that posted on 10/31 that didn't get a credit and only got 1 point per dollar. I just called Chase and they said the EZ-pass charge was coded as government services - other and not travel. The rep I spoke with also indicated that he thought it used to count as travel but it could possibly be a recent change.

Did anyone have a very recent EZ-pass charge that counted as travel? If so what state EZ-Pass did you use?

My charge was from 10/29 and posted on 10/31 and is from the NY EZ-pass though the charge just says the following:
   EZPASS PREPAID TOLL      $55.00
 Print   800-333-8655, NY 103140000 US
Online, Mail, or Telephone transaction

Interesting. The change must have occurred between then and 10/29. There was another report on the FlyerTalk CSR thread as well so I don't think it was an error in my case.

This is a really big deal if I'm correct and EZ-Pass NY is no longer travel credit eligible. There are many people for whom the only use of the credit is EZ-Pass, especially in short time windows when there isn't much time left in the year. I think I actually have to change my statement date to later in the month to I have more time in December to get the credit for 2016 as my current statement date is the 2nd.

So is it confirmed that auto replenishment for Ezpass doesn't count as Travel? Attached is Nov.9 that wasn't counting as travel.

Look upthread. You have to pay manually.

I think they're all sent UPS/FedEx regardless.  Mine came within 3 days or so via FedEx without requesting special delivery.  This was last week.  They wouldn't expedite the Priority Pass cards.

They ask you standard questions. My family and extended family have all been through this. No knowledge of custom laws is needed. They asked if I have traveled out of the country recently or do I plan on traveling. Where I work. Have I been convicted of a crime. DW they didn't really ask her anything. It is a piece of cake.

Ouch. I did mine on a layover. Unless you're a very frequent flyer, spending a couple hours to get Global Entry on a non-travel day negates a big chunk of the time G.E. will save you. But with the interview backlogs at many airports, I guess people have to do what they have to do.

It's hit or miss; seems to depend somewhat but not entirely on countries visited. Five years from now, though, if they do require another interview, one would hope you'd be able to just renew during a trip. The current backlogs are hurting the program.

There's no digital card for the Chase version of Priority Pass, but she can swipe the CSR and Chase will refund the $27 (?) lounge fee up to two times if she calls. Not sure if guests are included in the refund policy. (She might need the PP number for the desk; not sure.)

DW left this morning and her lounge card came after she left. Can she use it on the way back without the card?
PP? Sure.  She has to download the app,  or at least that makes it easier.  She may have to call in for a code,  which she gets by giving her membership number or credit card number.

Last I knew, the CSR PP isn't eligible for the digital version. People need to carry the physical card.

1. Chase will refund participating lounge entrance fees 2x per rolling 12 month period. It sounds like each charge could be up to $100. I thought I lost my card and spoke to a rep on Wednesday about this.

2. I know Wingtips in JFK T4 and Virgin America Loft in LAX T3 are fine if you have membership # and expiration, but YMMV.

I would posit that the few hours spent now to save 20 minutes in security by having precheck (which is automatic with GE) and making a flight you'd otherwise miss is a good enough reason, before adding any other considerations.
Re customs - I was once busted with an apple from Israel, they brought it up in my interview, with a stern warning.

My friend's GE application was denied for an apple on his record (which he didn't disclose on the app.)!

Hi

Round trip for wife and  our young child was booked with CSR and was supposed to return yesterday morning from Canada but early morning of yesterday, my mother in law suddenly fell down and some bleeding and was taken by ambulance to emergency room and  docs said  her mother had blood clot in her brain and high blood pressure.
I had to cancel my wife's flight because she can't leave when her mom suddenly experienced serious health issue. I called Chase who called the airline and I too called and the fee for refund or credit was  double the price of a flight ticket so I had to cancel. I called CSR benefit dept and they  emailed me some forms to send back.

My question is, what can she file claims for beside the trip cancelation due to sudden health issue with immediate family member?
Can she charge her cards for food and grocery and travel until she is able return back and get credited?

Thanks

Found pretty good tickets to Israel with Ukranian Airlines on Kayak.  When I want to book those tickets with CSR points, they are showing up $100 more per ticket on the ultimate rewards site.  I called Chase travel rewards and they explained that they only go by what the airline is selling the tickets for.  In this case, the points are not exactly worth 1.5 as your paying a premium for the ticket ebacuse you aren't buying through a travel booking site like Kayak or priceline.   Anyone have any thoughts/advise on this?

CSR points, the benefit dept  told me  it is treated as if it is paid directly with card itself.

I read the entire benefit guides https://www.chasebenefits.com/sapphirereserve   and still not sure if the immediate family member is supposed to part of the trip.

Was wondering if any benefits apply if you had to cancel your trip because of an emergency medical issue with your parent? The parent is not traveling and not booked for this trip. I just went to meet my parent and on my return date she got seriously ill and was admitted to emergency room and now I am not sure when I can return because it will be at least few days.

The BA website shows the fare as £40 (= $50.35) for Economy Basic or £53 (= $66.71) for Economy Plus, which includes one checked bag and 48-hour seat selection. I will have a checked bag, so I need Economy Plus (the fee for checking a bag on Economy Basic is £30 if booked in advance or £40 at the airport)

Chase shows this same flight for $66.50 (or 4,433 UR points). It identifies the class as simply Economy. Based on the price, is it safe to assume that this is Economy Plus?

Booked hotel stay on Sapphire Reserve for full $300 travel credit. Have to cancel the trip. Anyone know if Chase will retroactively apply the credit to other travel related spend if the year-end has passed on the card? If trip is canceled after year-end but currently still 2016 cycle, worthwhile to spend $300 on travel and hope Chase will apply credit?

I'm looking to meet my $4000 minimum spend and am planning to buy a plane ticket for a summer 2017 trip that will put me over $4000.  I will be buying a refundable ticket because there's a chance my travel plans may change.  If I have to cancel the ticket and receive a refund, will this have any impact on the sign up bonus points that I received as a result of meeting the $4000 spending threshold?

Make sure to hit the spend aside from that, just in case you have to cancel.

Should work, a UR booking is really a cash reservation, Idk if that cert has to be used at the time of booking though or if you can call and add it after you already have the reservation.

The CSR travel benefit is a terrible. agents lying, playing games to deny claims. I will explain:

I filed a claim on DEC 9 for travel interruption/cancelation because I had to cancel the return flight booked with CSR because my mother got sick on same day and admitted to emergency. I had to postpone my return and later rebook a week later. I filed claim with chase and sent in everything they asked including the claim form, the original round trip, the canceled one and the final flight and a letter from doctor. After 2 weeks, they replied back saying I should send this and that and they are all same thing I sent/emailed them 2 weeks ago. So I called today on Dec 21. and they said I should speak to a claim examinor and they are not available to talk and I should just wait for some calls or replies,


 
Yesterday Someone who introduced herself as Liz,  called me  yesterday and said they received everything  BUT  that Air Canada paid for my return flight on American Airlines.  She says AA gave me 15K Avios points and $88  first and I used those to book the return flight. I was like what? What's this nonsense about AC booked my return flight on AA and AA gave me BA points and $88 to book my return flight on AA? Hey  I have my own BA FF account and used my own BA points plus tax for 2 people to book return flight from YYZ. You can see that in the email too.She Just made up a lie as an excuse to deny the claim. The original round trip was booked with my Chase credit card points on Air Canada. I couldn't return on return date due to emergency issue with my mother and Air Canada wouldn't re-book my return flight. So I had purchase a new flight tickets on American Airlines using my 15000 British Airways avios points & $88 plus in taxes. I have sent you guys  EVERYTHING ,all the original flights, canceled flight and my return flight and how they are paid. The rep Liz just lied by saying AA told her I was re-booked by AA on AA flight and that AA paid the return flight for me. I told her stop talking nonsense and read all the docs I emailed them including how I paid for the AA flight with my own British airways points and $88 tax. I told her bring on the AA rep on phone that told you they re-booked the return and paid for my return flight. She put me on  hold for 30 mins or longer  and didn't bring AA rep and disconnected the phone line.  When I called back, it was  another rep who told me " I can appeal my claim".

I sent this email today: I  am asking you guys to stop playing games and be honest. I WILL file complaints with the insurance regulators in Georgia (where ever your offices are located) and my home state, and potentially file a lawsuit in my county's General District Court, if you  do not resolve the claim within 7 days.

First of all, don't listen to TPG. If you're redeeming through the UR travel portal, you'll get a flat rate of 1.5 cpp, if you transfer to travel partners (airlines or hotels) the value you get out of the points depends on how you spend them, you can get anywhere from under 1 cpp to upwards of 10 cpp.

i have 3 Chase accounts that earn UR points: 1 Chase Sapphire Reserve, and 2 Chase Ink cards.

Since Chase Sapphire Reserve has a 1.5 cents per dollar redemption option, can I move my points over from my Chase Ink cards (using the "combine points" feature) to the Chase Sapphire card, so that all my points will have the 1.5 cents per dollar redemption option?

I called Chase to ask that question, and they said yes, but it seems impossible to me that they would do that.
Please let me know if you have done this.

another question:
what does this mean -the part i underlined (from dan's original post about this card)?:

"Previously itís always been worth transferring Chase points into real airline miles and hotel points. But at about 1.5 cents per dollar it can start making sense to consider redeeming points directly for paid travel without transferring them into miles. Thatís especially true as those fares, as opposed to traditional mileage tickets, also earn additional miles."

if i'm redeeming via chase for paid travel, how are those fares earning additional miles?
sorry - just not getting it.

Because any travel redeemed through UR is considered a cash purchase on the airlines/hotels end, thus earning you miles/points for the flight/stay

Before you cancel, make sure a similar rate is still available through the portal. If so, call and make sure you can cancel (i was able to cancel mine up to 24 hrs before) - and if you can cancel, then re-book through UR travel portal, this time putting in the avis number, and confirm booking. Then cancel the first one without avis #.

Should I contact Chase about my dissatisfaction about their benefit dept? File BBB or CFPB complaint first?
Had a similar situation. However after reading the fine print and speaking to many employees both at Chase and the Benefit Admin.  You are only entitled to compensation for the non refundable canceled return fare. AC should refund the taxes on that ticket if you ask for it. The rest should be given by Chase. In received a payout after I a canceled a return fare for 5 passengers. I too asked for compensation on the rebooking. I didn't get it. You either get the canceled fare or the change fee to change the ticket. You don't get the canceled fare + the cost of a new return flight.
To date, the CSR has paid out $700 in travel insurance and $180 in purchase protection. Definitely keeping this card.

if you read, they didn't want to give me anything, NONE. Not even the original canceled flight.  I'd be satisfied if they just refund me for the canceled flight. They asked me how I eventually returned. I told them i booked my own flight on AA and paid myself and showed them the reservation that shows I booked the return flight on BA website on AA flight. They twisted that and lied to me by saying that return flight that I booked by myself was booked by AC for me. The way they booked for me was AC, reused my CSR points and booked an AA flight on BA website.    They are making up nonsense stuffs and playing games to deny.

Let's see how me complaint with Chase goes. I had to contact chase exec office cos the benefit dept is just being too dishonest!

I did read. The reps in Benefit admin have a hard time figuring out what's going on. Just wondering if you claimed the whole thing and it somehow confused them.  Very surprised at how they are distorting your experience.  From my experience chase executive office will be helpful.

I had once a claim regarding a flight, Travel Guard "paid" me within 6 weeks, Chase took close to 4 months.

Refund of taxes? Are you kidding me? This for a round trip NYC>TLV is about $98 (Fuel is refundable is the ticket is)

Are you dumb, slow, stupid or all 3?! You pay $450 in January 2017. You get back $300 in the year 2017, and then another $300 in 2018. Then when your card hits the 2nd year you close it! That's besides the 100,000 bonus points!

Yes year 2 they would give again 300 even if i cancelled?
I understand the value can be high at 1.5CPP but many times I just used airline points that i transferred from UR for example southwest, or just purchased the ticket direct because was a good low fare.
Also don't do ton of eating out a year and have other cards that give 2x points on dining so really just one extra point.

I decided to the latter. It's basically a very poor deal when you have to pay double just because of shipping (when the savings aren't that great after all).
It's this

WD Blue PC SSD WDS250G1B0B - Solid state drive - 250 GB - internal - M.2 2280 - SATA 6Gb/s - UL, TUV, BSMI, FCC, KC

Yes it is a price mistake

how does the airline credit work ? people make it sound like if i buy an airline ticket for any mount up to $300 then chase will refund me $300, it doesnt make sense that it works that way, it has to be that there are things that qualify and things that dont.

Its not airline credit. Its travel credit. Any travel related expense gets credited. See this thread and it's wiki: http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=68940.0

And every time you make a travel purchase, it gets credited. Up to $300. It does not work that if you make a $10 purchase, you get a $300 credit. You would get a $10 credit. It is cumulative for the year, up to $300.

Thanks, if I apply for AU does it go on my credit report as another cc (for 5/24)?
it goes on the AUs credit report and counts for their 5/24.

I did read. The reps in Benefit admin have a hard time figuring out what's going on. Just wondering if you claimed the whole thing and it somehow confused them.  Very surprised at how they are distorting your experience.  From my experience chase executive office will be helpful.
I filed complaint against Chase with CFPB but same denial.
 Here is the case:
I booked round trip on AC two on Chase UR site with CSR points.
On return date, we couldn't return due to sudden medical emergency with my mother and I called Chase that morning on NOV and who later told me AC told them the fees and penalty would cost about $500 to rebook the return flight for another date. That amount was even more than the original round trip. I checked with AC myself and they told me the same. After a week, i returned on AA flight that I MYSELF BOOKED USING MY OWN 15K BA AVIOS POINTS PLUS OVER $88 IN TAX I PAID WITH MY CSR CARD. I filed a claim and i sent them everything they asked for such as

Original round trip Chase travel voucher reservation.
The return AC flight that I couldn't fly
doctor's letter
Return AA flight reservation email from British airways website that clearly shows 15k avios and over $88 in tax paid

Chase SR statement that would show the $88 in tax I paid for the AA flight I booked on BA site.

$50 in Bag fee for the AC one way outbound flight with my CSR card.



They said they got everything they asked to send but my claim is denied because it was AC and not me that booked the return AA flight for me.
When I told them to look at the return AA flight reservation confirmation that shows I used my own 15k BA points and over $88 in tax. They said AC reused my chase points for me and booked the AA flight. I laughed and got mad at the same time they said this.
I called them multiple times to look in to what I sent them and they all said claim denied because AC rebooked my return AA flight.
I finally filed complaint with CFPB and the response is the same lies and thta is AC re-booked the return AA flight for me and they paid $88 for the return one way flight.

As you can see, I showed all the proof but they are twisting and turning and playing games to deny.

Pls tell me what options to take next. small claims court?
How do I do it and pros and cons? I know I can prove them wrong but I still ask for your suggestions and opinions on next steps.
Thanks

It seems to hinge on weather AC rebooked you or not.  Maybe you can get AC to verify that they had nothing to do with your return ticket?  Maybe there's even something on line in your account about that portion of the ticket being forfeited?

Today I called the Chase executive office rep who replied to my CFPB complaint. I requested her to " look at my CSR credit card statement" that would show a charge from British Airways for $88.22 on DEC 2nd and the flight origin & destination. I told her this is another simple evidence that I paid for the final return flight on my own with my own CSR card. I also used 15k avios points in addition to the $88.22 and that reservation detail was provided to the benefit dept a month ago.
The exec rep replied back by saying, AC took care of that return AA flight and that this is the decision by the benefit dept and the exec office can't do anything and wanted to end the conversation.
So the exec office didn't want to get involved. I contacted and submitted all proof to the benefit dept and called many times since Dec and my contact with Chase executive office, the BBB & CFPB complaint didn't help. I am exhausted!
They no longer care what I sent them or what proof I showed them. If they looked at what I sent them or were fair, they would have never said AC rebooked my return AA flight. If I showed them even my credit card statement showing them $88.22 I paid using my CSR card for the return AA flight AND the reservation detail printed from BA that shows I used 15k avios and $88.22, THEY EVEN IGNORE THAT.

you are really stressing for nothing. Bottom line you lost 15k avios plus $88 extra. I would just let it go. It's really not worth to stress yourself for this IMO

I was suggesting getting proof from the AC side.  Either your AC account or a letter/ statement from AC that your last leg was unflown / forfeited / lost  and that AC had nothing to do with helping you leave the city.
Although I agree with mochjas not to get sick over this.  At some point, it pays to let things slide.

i called chase sapphire about making a travel insurance claim, but my trip is only a 4-day trip and not the required minimum 5 days.
chase said that I'm free to go ahead and file the claim and see what happens, but they can't predict what the insurance adjusters will decide.

does anyone have any experience with filing a claim and getting the money, where the trip is less than 5 days?

it doesn't matter. A UR booking is considered cash to the hotel. But you booked on a 3rd party site so you don't earn stay credits or points. (Found this out from the Jetblue promo)

IIRC you should have no problem since the charge will appear as a charge for the TSA there is no way for the CSR to know whom it was charged for. IOW just pay for your Pre check with your wife's card and it will be credited.

Hi All.  I looked around a little and did not see this discussed yet, but if it has been please share where.
I have travel vouchers with Copa Airlines after getting bumped from a flight.  The voucher will more than cover the cost of my fare, but Copa does not allow you to pay for the taxes with the voucher.  Therefore, when I pay for this I will only be charging the taxes to the Chase Sapphire Reserve card.  Does anyone know where (if at all) in the terms Chase states that Travel benefits (like insurance, etc.) are covered if I am paying for only the taxes and not the base fare?

Get it in writing from cops airlines that they don't cover taxes. Without that you don't stand a chance

I've noticed that if I get a travel purchase refunded, it still eats into my travel credit. So does that mean that I get the credit even though I eventually got a refund?

If that's true, any reason why someone couldn't buy a refundable airline ticket to get the credit, and then cancel?

The original question was if he could close it within the month and not pay the fee.
Presumably he used the 2017 credit and he is not getting 3 credits in the first year as it's February.

Therefore keeping it open will cost him $150 ($450-$300).

When I signed up for the Reserve, it advertised my 100,000 points to be worth $1500 travel when booked through the ultimate rewards website. (obviously the points can have much more value when transfered to partners but that is not what I am discussing)

However, when actually using the Ultimate Rewards website, particularly for hotels in my experience, the prices they list are often extremely inflated compared to other websites and directly with the hotel so instead of points being worth 1.5 cents each, in practice they are often more like 1 cent per point. In fact, when I pointed this out to the representative from the Chase travel center when asking for a match to the price listed or a credit in points to offset the difference, she suggested I cash out the points at 1 cent each and pay the lower amount by booking directly from the hotel.

This seems like false advertising but I have not heard to many other people having this issue.

Regardless of whether or not they are more expensive, as long as they are offering you 1.5 cents per point towards the dollar rate they are charging there is no problem with what they are advertising. You can choose whether or not you would like to book with them.

whoop!! my mistake... all those questions were meant to be in reference to my amex..is the answer any different? (i also have  2 reserves this will soon apply too)
Title: Re: Chase Sapphire Reserve BENEFITS master thread
Post by: ad120 on March 03, 2017, 12:23:13 AM
Because he thinks so. Per FT on the Amex credit, credit has to come thru as $100/85 to qualify, $50+50=100 does not
I SM'd chase. They responded by saying that the charges from CBP/TSA are coded. Essentially the credit hits the account if the charge matches the code.

Preferred also has an AF and can't do airfare at 1.5 cpp.

I have personal experience with this exact issue.  It depends on the airline.  If the flights are on an airline that shows up in searches on the Chase portal - it should work.

If it's for an airline that does not - they won't be able to book the flight and you won't get the 1.5x bonus if you book direct with the airline.  Air Serbia is an example of this.  I found a great one-way J fare from AMS-TLV, but there was no way to book and enjoy the 1.5.

Don't know if this has been previously reported, but Chase informed me that even if Priority Pass doesn't work at a specific lounge, I can pay for access with my Reserve and they will refund it to me, twice per calendar year. Haven't tested it out, and I don't know if it works automatically, though Chase customer service is excellent. Keep in mind, you generally need to pay for the lounge before you arrive there

You have to call and have them manually apply the refund and IINM it has to be a PP lounge although I may be wrong about that.

A family member of mine traveled back home to Israel this Sunday with his wife and 4 kids. All of his 5 suitcases were delayed. He payed airfare with the Reserve, and called up Chase to hear about his benefits. They told him they will pay him $100 per person, per day, max of 6 days, minus any compensation he may get from the airline.

Now to the question: Today 4 out of the 5 suitcases arrived. Can he still spend and be reimbursed according to the above, or since most of his luggage arrived they will only reimburse part?

But if I don't get it for my kids, I won't be able to use it on this trip anyway. I'd get it for them too if I was getting reimbursed, but it sounds like it's for sure not automatic, and I'd probably have to fight with them on it - maybe even not getting the credit at all in the end.

But the YMMV in this instance is fundamentally incorrect.  There is nothing excluding fast food restaurants or cafes and no data points pointing at the like.  Please stop with the nitpicking.

I agree. fast food has always posted as a restaurant - that shouldn't be a YMMV situation. Perhaps in some situations (fast food at an airport), it might be different but vast majority always post correctly

Don't think it's been talked about very much on here, but successfully used the trip delay insurance benefit from CSR due to weather issues in Dulles that caused an overnight for me a few weeks ago. Claim paid out ~$400 total ($500 is the limit per claim) for hotel, meals, uber. Great benefit and definitely worth booking on CSR for personal flights because of it.

It could, i've gotten reimbursed on completely seperate tickets booked with chase card. Haven't heard of any reports of them reimbursing cost of new air fare, but they can cover hotel, meals for that delay or cancellation costs if there is sufficient documentation

I added the AU a month after the original card was opened and luckily I didn't get charged AU fee for first year until just 3 days ago during renewal. Now I am charged $450 AF & $75 AU  fee. I can cancel the AU to avoid the $75 fee but then even after the $300 credit, I still have to pay $175 AF which is bit too much for me. I wonder if I can double dip?  If not, will have to cancel or do product change. Have 60 days  to cancel or do product change to avoid the AF from the date it was charged?

Are you absolutely sure you did not receive the travel credit on earlier purchases made since your december statement closed? There are so many things that qualify.

Why don't you check how much you have left? Log in to ultimate rewards and it will tell you how much you used this year.

I have to apologize here for writing about this few times and being wrong! Just realized that I did get 2nd year credit on Jan 2017 statement.

I knew this only after checking my Jan & Feb statement.

In the meantime I can't decide on keeping or canceling or converting. I have $75 AU & $450 AF fee charged on Sep 1. If  I keep it, I may cancel the AU to save $75 fee , pay $450 & get $300 back in Jan so my AF becomes $150.  I have ink plus card to be able to make point transfers.  I like all the rewards benefits except for travel protection benefit where they refused and denied my canceled trip claim for amount of $250 even after all the proof and Chase Exec couldn't do anything either. I may just cancel it before Sept 31, the 30 days deadline

To clarify, "billing" means statement closing date that shows the fee (not when the fee posts on the 1st of the month).
So, the way I understand it, you have 30 days from the close of the statement in which the AF is billed.
Call to cancel today and ask if you are still eligible for a full refund of the AF. You may be.

Iv'e had the the CSR since January 2017 and added my wife as an authorized user. Our fee, therefore, is $525 per year.  Shortly after the we got the card we used the $300 travel credit and TSA Pre-check credit. We spend around $25,000 a year on the card and about $2000 per year on travel dining, so throughout the past year we have accumulated 30,000 points.  When we do travel, it is usually on Southwest, which means that we are traveling through smaller airports that do not have lounges. Do you think that it is worth it to keep the card open for next year?

Waste paying for the authorized user. Just ask for a plastic version and have your wife use that. It works for me.

What's the plastic version just the same thing with a plastic card instead of metal?
Do you get PP with the plastic version?

If you put that many miles on a southwest card, what would it be worth to you? Maybe you don't need this card at all.

You don't get national executive status with the CSR. You can use the infinite code for perks when renting, but it doesn't give you status.

Yes transfer them to the Freedom and then you can use/sell them at a later date (maybe youíll upgrade back to CSR or another card thatíll allow you to transfer to airline miles)

They'll refund the cost of second leg,  $450. If unused.
Not sure how they work with UR, but if you paid full amount with CC they should refund you in full the second leg.

If you decide not to use that ticket they'll probably pay you the full amount of the second leg, first they'll only pay you changing fee, after a year if the ticket is unused they'll refund the difference, if you just change the ticket they'll only pay the changing fee.

Yeah in the middle of booking w/ USAA, much cheaper than squaremouth for me ($48 for family of 4, 31 day trip)
plus, if you set the trip cost at 0, they still give $750 for travel interruption insurance, which is more than my tickets cost anyways.
(although since kids are free, I may as well put my sons trip cost at $650, so I can get 150%

Quick question:

With Sapphire Reserve, do I need to do something to get Priority Pass Lounge access or just show the card and get in?? I will receive the credit card tomorrow, and might be traveling internationally next weekend.

And for the travel credit of $300, if I am booking airline ticket, does that meet this requirement?  And, if I spend $4100 (spend req is $4000), but that includes $300 for travel spend, and the I get travel credit for $300, does it still count towards spend requirement to get bonus?


Thanks.

Thanks.
1) Call Chase to order the the Priority Pass card, try to have them expedite (they would have to send a request to PP to send it with Fedex), if you don't get it in time you can pay for lounge entry with the credit card and call Chase to refund the entry fees (you can do this twice each year).
2) Yes.
3) Yes.

Try using the return protection benefit. That should work to get you $500 per item

Just checked it up for you. Unfortunately, I think chase makes you pay return shipping (unlike Amex) but it canít hurt to try. Itís hard to believe theyíll expect you to ship it back.

Trying to get a price protection claim in before the benefit is removed on 8/26. An item I bought on Amazon is $60 less on eBay. Will Chase deny the claim because it is considered an auction site, even though the item is only available as a Buy It Now item?

From the benefits guide:

"Advertisements posted on the Internet, by a non-Auction Internet merchant with a valid tax identification number....

Auction  (online or live) Ė a place or Internet site where items are sold through bidding or price quotes; or where prices fluctuate based on the number of people interested in purchasing or attempting to purchase a product. (Examples include, but are not limited to, eBay, Ubid, Yahoo, and public or private live auctions.)"


The price doesn't fluctuate because it's a Buy It Now and not an auction item, but do they categorically exclude all of eBay regardless?

I do not have the CSR card, but I am sure it is similar to the Amex Platinum,  which I used a couple of times, pretty fast service, on both occasions they arrived in around 30 minutes, of course depends on time of day, city you are in etc.

My luggage was mistakenly taken by someone else at the airport. After discovering his error , he is bringing it back to the airport and the airline is delivering it to my house later today.

Is this considered "baggage delay" that is covered by CSR?

(Will be delivered more than 6 hrs after the flight...)

Certainly not true, as Iíve had my insurance covered by my credit card every time I rented a car there

The terms and conditions on the websites of all rental car companies in IL says that 3rd party liability is mandatory, and the cc only covers collision. Which is correct?

So, basically, there's no way around the 3rd party insurance, as they state? Can travel agents, etc. get a cheaper rate on insurance?

Does anyone know if Baggage protection stays in effect if the card is cancelled in between booking the travel and the actual date of travel? Annual fee will be due and points will be used up.... I did not see anywhere in the terms that the card needs to be in good standing.

FTFY..

To answer your question, it depends what youíre looking to do with them. Selling them, theyíre currently worth around 1.3 depending on the amount. If you have a CSR and use them for travel theyíre worth 1.5.

I wouldn't count on them covering anything if it's a weather related cancellation. They'll probably refund you the cost of the trip which the airline would usually do anyway if you ask them to.
I hope to be told I'm wrong.
You should be able to Google it easily.

Medical report? If yes then a full refund easy and fast. If not, I guess it all depends .

No, just plain too sick to fly..
Although my guess is it shouldn't be too difficult to get some letter from a doctor...

I guess the main question is does it make a difference if it's taken care of before departure time or doesn't make a difference?

Does not matter if a few days after, I had a similar experience, 6 tickets, I broke my shoulder a few days before the flight, got a letter from the doctor saying he suggested to me not to fly for at least a month, so for an illness will work out too.

Which agrees withAnd not

I am not talking about CDW coverage. I was talking about a basic basic basic insurance that is included in your bill. If you try reserving a car online (cheap car rentals.com), this is not included in the price as advertised. It is often also included in the base rate which is included in your contract. Sometimes the daily rate ends up being more expensive than originally thought.

It is just a generalization and maybe doesn't happen to everyone and might depend on which car rental agent or company you go through.

If you care whether the booking is via Expedia or the hotel directly. Hotels can refuse to honor elite status if booked through an OTA.

I want to verify my understanding of CSR lost luggage benefit. If the airline lost a bag with 5k of items inside, and paid me 3k for it, Chase will pay another 2k? If the airline only reimburses 1k, Chase will pay max of 3k?

They ask if a report was filed with police. Is that necessary?

Anything else to know or be careful about regarding filing the claim?

Look at how many points you have of each. IMO is easier to earn UR points then MB. Despite this, I still value UR points over MB.

As I said, batching. If delta didn't batch the payments until after the statement closed, it's possible it would hit the next one. It's also possible that what we you did didn't code as travel.
