Toll road in Toronto (I think it's called the 407). A good thing it worked since it was $20 plus for about 50 miles.

Not exactly the travel credit, but at any rate thought people might like to know that in Israel, the "Tzarchaniya / צרכניה" vending machines count for 3x points for dining.  These are those refrigerator-style machines (like a jumbo-sized hotel minibar, swipe CC to unlock the door) that sell sandwiches, salads, pasta, yogurt, crackers, etc.

Quick question for you all....I searched the boards but couldn't find an answer....
CSR is $450 for signer & $75 for AU.
Does AU also get $300 in Travel Benefits?
I don't think so but I've been wrong before....thanks!

I have my NY EZpass on auto reload every $25. The first 4x ($25x4=$100) it reloaded I got credit right away. It has reloaded at least another 8x ($25x8=$200) since then. And I have yet to see the credit.

Anyone have experience that the credit takes time?
Or any DP regarding EZpass NY refill stop working?

I  just spoke to chase customer service, they said they changed the policy and you have the whole 2017 to spend the $300 from 2016 along with your $300 from 2017.  That means that if you already  spent $300 in 2016 then you will get the additional $300 as before in 2017.  But, if you opened  your reserve in 2016 and did not have a chance to spend your $300 in 2016 for the first year only it will carry over to 2017 and you will get a $600 credit in 2017.  This can alleviate some of the pressure that you have to spend the $300 credit before the end of the year, the whole statement generating thing doesn't matter anymore .

Someone Ben commented on DDMS post today that Chase told him that those who didn't use 2016 credit have $600 in 2017. Hard to believe. Any others?

If not, my brother just opened the card a few days ago and I see now his statement closed the 3th of December. Anything we can try to get the $300 for 2016? Thanks in advance.

Write that the terms were confusing and you just got approved but didn't have enough time to get the TC, be creative, give them a sob story.
ETA : You might want to try moving your statement forward a few days first and see if they'll let you do that.

Ok thanks. Re the ETA, from what I understand moving the statement date later won't help because the TC goes based on the first statement closing in December. No?

Dan wrote on DDMS that it officially won't work to change to a later date based on the wording in the t&c but I haven't seen any DP that it for sure won't work.
You may as well try it, in case it works.


ETA: Here's the quote

Chase also writes that it ends with the ďFirstĒ December statement, so seemingly if you miss your December statement and then change your due date to generate a second December statement, it still will only count as a 2017 travel charge.

I am not sure. Maybe a more experienced member can chime in (and tell us if the idea is worth trying as well).

If you can change it to around a week from now,  spend $300 and then wait for it to close and spend another $300 you will see if you get the credit twice.
Our maybe if you PUTPAC they can tell you which year's credit you received (without having to spend another $300).

When signed into Chase, go to Ultimate Rewards.  Go to your Reserve card.  Start scrolling down. There's a box saying how much of the credit you received this  year.  Dan has a direct link and a picture in his last writeup of this card.  http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/101084
I don't know what it'll look like when there's a 2nd year, but there'll probably be a 2nd box.

I would think it makes a difference where you buy it from . If you buy it from an insurance company then it would probably list as "insurance" or something like that. If you buy from a travel agent/booking site then I assume it would show as travel.

You can take this one to the bank. If you don't try your odds will be ZERO!!!



Approved today after a long 45 min call.... made the closing date for the 24th and overnighted the card all in one call!

Customer feedback is an important opportunity for our
organization to review processes and service and make
appropriate changes. For that reason, we always welcome
and appreciate feedback from our customers. I regret to
hear that the service you received was not at the level
you expected. Thank you for taking the time to share your
experience with us, and we sincerely regret the
inconvenience this matter has caused you.

The $300 travel credit maximum is explained on the
application that you applied for. If you apply for a Chase
Sapphire Reserve rewards credit card account, the
information below shows under "Offer Details" before you
agree to submit the application. It does explain that the
$300 travel credit begins with your account open date
through your December statement.

Although we appreciate your loyalty, we ask that you trust
that this decision is the same for all members. We feel
that adhering to the same policy for all members is the
best way to remain fair and consistent. Regrettably, since
the terms of the offer were agreed to prior to submitting
the application, I am unable to honor your request and we
are unable to take further action regarding the $300
travel credit.

I belive this isn't true. If IIRC Dan had posted that he has had a cc close 10 days after he got it. I received mine today and after calling and confirming thru SM I got a statement close Dec 28. Due date Jan 25. So it doesn't hurt to huca.

Thank you! I tried an SM and they said no problem

I requested the 28th of December as a closing date

Now I am unclear if that date is okay
I see elsewhere dan says the statement has to print in December?

Will a dec 28th close print in December?

Or do I get the credit so long as the charge posts in the December statement?

Thanks

I dint believe they refund unless maybe you cancel your ezpass? I'm wondering if they would mail a check in this case..
If you cancel your EZ-Pass you can request to be refunded by ACH. FYI, Mass EZ Pass - no fees for anything :-)

So NYC just came out with an app that you can pay for meters with. Great for NY'ers etc.

Seems you prepay an amount to keep in the "wallet". you can put up to $150 in it at a time. SEems like something that should give you the credit. Will test $25 now (the smallest amount) and will advise.

Any ideas on how to confirm year which travel

My new card showed up in my chase login. the last 4 digits and a due date of feb 12.  Oh, no!
So I sm'd and asked for the due date to be moved to the end of the month. They wrote back saying the due date has to be the 1-28th of the month. 
So I picked the 27th so the card will close in Dec.  But I was worried that I wouldn't get the card with enough time to use it before the due date. 
As I was reading the last Chase sm, ding dong- my card arrived!

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.

Should I contact Chase about my dissatisfaction about their benefit dept? File BBB or CFPB complaint first?

Actually my wife got it and I am AU . She wasn't  charged au fee and it has been many months now. Will take it. I booked a car rental in my name am sure it is treated as if she booked it and I get collision coverage. I think fee will come in nov since I got this card in nov. I mean will cancel after getting the credit and probably convert to the freedom unlimited . Th  travel benefit dept is totally separate from this card and card reps has no say whatsoever in benefits. Would have been nice if the benefit dept as good as the card itself. I filed bbb complaint against the Card benefit dept but bbb forwarded it to Chase Exec office who called me to ask me what this was about. I explained and she told me they will reach out to  ththe benefit dept but I doubt here will be resolution. The befit depth will say the same nonsense lie  to the exec office who will then tel me they said this so case closed

His question is whether or not Expedia will code as travel.

Probably not. Depends where you are doing it. Closest place to me is a PO, and codes as PO. Most likely will post as a government agency, even if not 3rd party.

Iím not sure where to post this but I spoke to a rep and they said itís not a calendar annual credit. Itís based on opening date.

Rep is correct. Did you get a credit within the last 12 months?

Yes. I thought it was calendar year.

It was. That was changed more recently to cardmember year, although anyone who had the card prior to the change is grandfathered in.

Yes. I thought it was calendar year.
It was see below, now it changed. Either way unless itís within your first 12 months of getting the card, it makes no practical difference to you. The whole benefit was for people that applied in that first year it was available, they got $300 twice in 12 months. At this point no one gets more than $300 per 12 month period regardless of when they applied, and wether or not they were grandfathered in.

Are you referring to upgrades/downgrades?
Title: Re: Purchases That Work For Sapphire Reserve Travel Credit

Are you referring to upgrades/downgrades?
Nope. Firstly, if you applied the first year, you got 3 TCs for one AF. And it does still make a difference, because you can't triple dip the same way you could before.

A) I said the whole difference was for getting 2 credits in that first 12 month period AKA triple dip.
B) How does it still make a difference there is no scenario where calendar year gets you anything more than card member year, other than that initial extra $300 credit. Even if you downgraded in both scenarios right after the next travel credit hit you would be at the same place. As a matter of fact for cancelling/downgrading the argument can be made that card member year is actually better. Unless I am missing something, in which case please enlighten me.
