Mega?? Nu , Nu sounds just Big to me , but hey all free stuff are Mega in my eyes .

What's the general consensus , I canceled my CO 45 days ago , should I apply for the CO , UA , and Sapphire Trifecta  . I know that Dan just pulled it off but many people seemed to have run into problems , including my wife

50K miles for a fee-free card with no ForEX sounds good to me!

We have to remember that we are getting numbed by these insane offers recently the 100 BA the 75K citi (225K for those who were on the ball) Amex 100K and 75K with matching. Not that long ago we would of been dancing for these offers , however then it was MUCH easier to churn so we didn't need big incentives.

which match hasn't worked in the last 2 months that this shouldn't. It looks like matching season is on.

The way its been going maybe we should apply for every CC and just wait for the match option to come along :)

Actually none. I'm waiting for my credit report to update the balance on a card that I just paid off. The reason I was denied was bec balance ratio was too high. After my cr updates I'm gonna call recon and hopefully get approved.
After all this happens - and lets say I get approved - is it to close in time start applying for this card? I think I read somewhere that with chase u need to wait 30 days, ---does that mean 30 from apply date or 30 from approved date ? (I applied 11 days ago and probably wont get approved till end of next week)

I just got an offer from Chase for their Sapphire Preferred (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/chasepre/) card with a signup bonus of 50000 points, and an additional 30000 if i spend $3000 in the first 3 months. Is this a worthwhile card to have, and what can i do with the points? Thanks!

They recently told me 30 days from approval (date account opened), only one new card per 30 days. Since that's clearly not the case(other people's experiences prove otherwise (http://www.dansdeals.com/forums/index.php?topic=6675.msg81071#msg81071)), I'd say YMMV.

hmmm. i was recently approved for the CO 50k and for the BA but without the 100k bonus. (total 20k line) there's no way they'll approve another card (as it is i had to push the CO through recon). i was going to shut the BA. now i figure i should wait.
is there any way they'll 'convert' my BA to this new app?
or do i have to apply, get declined, then have recon convert it?

also; is sapphire signup generally churnable?

I just tried my first multiple browser method to apply for this and the CO OP 50k but I may have messed up.  There was one line of info missing from my Sapphire app and the CO app went thru but this one didnt get actually sent for about 20 seconds as I had to put in the info and then click apply again.  I was instantly approved for the CO but will be considered for Sapphire.  I am wondering if they will have used one pull or two because of the delay.  Anyone ever have a similar experience? About how close together do they have to be to get only one pull?

I did the BA and fumbled the UA card only submitted it 45 seconds later . Still only got one pull.

 However I couldn't get the UA approved only the BA. I don't think it was the pause , it was rejected because of too many inquiries. They told me to call back 30 days from approval of the BA and they should be able to get the UA approved

similar story happened to me also only one pull.
Try calling back after the ba clears and use the ua reference number, maybe you could push it through by cancelling older cards

Did it , offered to split shut credit cards to no avail. Granted my wife did have 5 inquiries in the last 2 months. Not sure why they told her to call back after 30 days then she's less of a credit risk.

Did you push the UA through?

I have the sapphire preferred already so I'm  not going to apply for this, but using the things I learned here I sent a message saying how I've been a cardholder for a very long time (it was a different card years ago and they upgraded it to sapphire with the same card number) but I didnt get this bonus, etc etc. Bh they responded with 25k points!

The card is actually a very good card, you get through right away and they recognize my phone number and only ask for my name. It has some good protections too. I do most of my spending on it.

It's a nice card, but the $95 annual fee is a bit steep, even with the protections (SPG is only $65). Do the ever (or often?) do bonus points promotions (e.g. for certain spending categories)?

They are giving me 2x on everything from may-june, it's probably targeted, i dont know for sure, i'm having trouble taking advantage since I'm meeting spend on other new cards.

I haven't actually paid the fee, i upgraded to a reg sapphire a few years ago and then this year to preferred. I'm planning on downgrading at the end of the year when the fee is due, and am wondering if they would waive the fee again at some point for upgrading. If not I'd have to transfer all my points before downgrading.

Go for it. You can always give the RSVP code to reconsideration and say you thought it was pre-approved. Be willing to close an old Chase card (if you have one) and/or transfer a credit line from one of your other cards.

Just bear in mind that you're in uncharted territory, you might just have to cut your losses and absorb the second pull.

When I worked for a CC company years ago "Preapproved" only meant that the card issuer bought thousands of names and addresses of people within certain credit profiles they requested (ie- no missed payments for 24 months, more than 2 cards w/3years history or whatever the criteria was they requested from the bureaus). By they time they recieve that data and the time you get the offer could be months later.

That's what it meant, until regulation required them to call that pre-selected. Now they actually have to have a credit criteria that you're approved for, and so long as it hasn't gotten worse from when they mailed you the app, they have to honor it. At least that's how I understand
 it.

Of course. Companies make a mint (no pun intended) using your information to push offers your direct. As someone put it so poignantly: To Google, advertisers are the customer, you (the user) is the product (being sold).

That's what it meant, until regulation required them to call that pre-selected. Now they actually have to have a credit criteria that you're approved for, and so long as it hasn't gotten worse from when they mailed you the app, they have to honor it. At least that's how I understand
 it.

So you are saying that I will be approved assuming that my credit didnt change in the last few days?

If your offer says pre-approved, call them up and ask them what it means.

Took the plunge..........no instant approval. Then again, I have the CO, UA and BA cards all applied for in the last 3 months. My new philosophy is to always apply.
Update: I called  1-888-270-2127 (reconsideration)  today to check the status. Was told (not unexpectedly) that it was declined because of 'too many recent applications' and 'too many cards not open for a sufficient amount of time.' Asked if she could reconsider and she asked 'why I was applying for so many cards.' My answer was I travel frequently and prefer to collect miles with multiple programs to diversify. We then went over some income details and she determined she cannot extend new credit but perhaps can allocate from one of my other Case cards. I agreed and she is 'resubmitting' the application and there will be an update sometime next week.

Getting there.......

Can ultimate rewards points be transferred between spouses?
Title: Re: 50K Sapphire Preferred Bonus!
Post by: AsherO on May 18, 2011, 10:51:10 AM
Can ultimate rewards points be transferred between spouses?

Yes, according to this Chase PDF (https://chaseonline.chase.com/resources/ChaseDebitCardUF_TandC.pdf):

Quote
Account-to-Account Points Transfers: Points transfers are not currently available. We
will notify you when you may transfer points to other Ultimate Rewards accounts. At
that time, you may transfer points to any other eligible credit card or debit card with
Ultimate Rewards. Transfers may only be used to combine points belonging to the same
individual or business in the Program; or for the purpose of enabling spouses or domestic
partners to combine points earned in their respective names. If the transferee’s or your
credit card account(s) or checking account(s), as applicable, are in default at the time of
the transfer, Chase will not make the transfer. Once points are transferred, they cannot be
credited back.

But why would you need to do that if you can just deposit them into any CO/BA account? AFAIK the names don't need to match.

I was denied and when I called the guy said that I just opened the continental card and cant open another Chase card within 30 days. I had done the multiple browsers thing, got instant approval on CO.  I basically have one day to call recon after the 30 days pass from my CO approval and before the 30 days pass from my sapphire denial. 

Is it worth giving recon another call or will they always say that one card per 30 days.

This 30 day 1 card rule does not seem to be the case here.
Applied 5/5 for CO + BA. Recon Approved the CO about May 14.
Called May 19 for recon on BA (using that reference #) and they said they passed it along
to BA for review and that was a good sign of approval (they knew
immediately I was just reconned on the CO). I recieved the BA
Welcome FF email yesterday.

I think it may have been better if I wasnt instantly approved for the CO and had to call recon for both.

Sent a secured message for myself and my wife requesting that we get an additional 25k UR points b/c of the new promo (we applied and received the card last June or July).  Same rep responded to both our inquiries and immediately credited us with an additional 25k as a courtesy.  AWESOME!

BTW, within the last three months I have applied for and was approved for (after calling recon) the CO card (on day 1), Southwest card (day 25) and the BA card (day 30).

I applied and got a Sapphire card last August but closed it in order to open a CO card in January.  i then applied for this new offer and got approved.  I received my card roughly 5 days ago.  What surprised me was how much it changed since last year....when did they make it so weighty?  I believe it now has a metal center.   They also moved the account number to the back of the card - a nice feature IMO since nobody can see it or snap a cell phone pic when u go to swipe the card.

I don't think it's any harder than any other card.


Was just told by a reconsideration credit analyst, that this particular card is not approved for a credit  limit of under 5k, therefore could not approve etc, interesting anybody else heard this, or anybody with this card with lower limit than 5k?

I applied  BA card a few weeks ago, but never heard anything from them. So I applied for the Chase Sapphire last week. I called recon yesterday and found out that they were both declined because I have the CO and UA cards open. I have good credit but they said there is nothing I can do. I was  too lazy to argue at the time.

Is it worth it to call back and ask to combine my UA and CO cards in order to get approved? Any other strategies I can try?

Call back and ask to move some credit around. I was in the same situation and that strategy worked for the BA and Sapphire.

Perhaps the card is intrinsically non up gradable to the better offer for whatever reason, however you did see that better offer so they just credited you the difference.

I was the one that originally reported success getting the extra 30K  2 weeks ago . Someone raised this possibility in another thread and I acted on it . I was actually  wondering why there wasn't any more mention of people successfully doing this. I hope everyone is doing it , if not what are you waiting for?

By me they actually denied that there is an 80K offer but after arguing they gave me 30K as a courtesy. Now they have acknowledged it  should only get easier .

I am going to go for a triple soon with chase with this being the 3rd. What are my chances?
Approved CO 5/13
Approved BA 5/19
both were reconned after denials.
Have put spending on both so far over $1200 since opened, and paid them off.
2 year history with Chase (freedom).
Only 1 inquiry on file (from 5/5 of the above). Utilization is <2% last 5 months. Is
35 days since last approval enough time? I really need to do it before my time runs out
my my 5k installment loan acceptance as it's 90 days is comming up (builiding a better credit profile and don't want that to deter chase when it hits).

Hi

I hope this e mail finds you well.

I just received my Chase Saphire credit card under the
promotion that gives 50,000 bonus points after spending
$3,000. But, just this morning, I saw another offer that
gives 50,000 bonus points after the first purchase and an
additional 30,000 bonus points after $3,000 in spending.

If possible, I would appreciate if you could please

points after the first purchase and 30,000 after spending
$3,000.

Another advantage is that you could transfer UR from your freedom card onto Sapphire and from there onto CO . You can't do it from Freedom to CO directly.

 I just spent 3k on 2 freedom cards for the 5% bonus and will be transferring it to my CO card that way.

On Chase.com does this card show up as Chase Sapphire Preferred or does it only say Chase sapphire by "my accounts."
I ask because I just had this card approved a few days ago and it showed up on my online account today and it only says chase sapphire.  I want to make sure i was approved for the right card.  I can wait until the card shows up but wanted to check with people who have already received theirs what it says on their online account.

Freedom earns UR points.  UR points can be used for cash back or for miles if you also have a Sapphire Preferred.
You can get $150 cash back for opening one: http://www.dansdeals.com/go/freedom150/
If you also have a Chase Checking account you get 10 points for each transaction made on the freedom card in addition to 1-5 UR points per dollar spent.

Freedom offers Ultimate Rewards (UR) which can be used for many things.  Sapphire preferred also uses UR and allows you to transfer to CO, Hyatt, or BA at 1:1.  And you can put your UR from freedom into your sapphire UR and transfer all of them to those programs.

The real benefit to freedom is that if you are a chase banking customer you get an additional 10 points per purchase.  This is great for small purchases especially if you then transfer that to CO miles.

I believe the freedom card is offering some cash back sign up bonus (follow Dan's link above).  I am not sure if that comes as actual cash back or in UR points.

Do you guys think I should send my SM now, before they catch on, or wait until I received the card and made a purchase.  I don't want to miss out on the additional 30k.



Springles: It doesn't say preferred in your Chase online account, mine is the same way.
Thanks, just wanted to make sure

Freedom offers Ultimate Rewards (UR) which can be used for many things.  Sapphire preferred also uses UR and allows you to transfer to CO, Hyatt, or BA at 1:1.  And you can put your UR from freedom into your sapphire UR and transfer all of them to those programs.

The real benefit to freedom is that if you are a chase banking customer you get an additional 10 points per purchase.  This is great for small purchases especially if you then transfer that to CO miles.

I believe the freedom card is offering some cash back sign up bonus (follow Dan's link above).  I am not sure if that comes as actual cash back or in UR points.
@springles, thanks for the info. I will look into freedom card.

Freedom earns UR points.  UR points can be used for cash back or for miles if you also have a Sapphire Preferred.
You can get $150 cash back for opening one: http://www.dansdeals.com/go/freedom150/
If you also have a Chase Checking account you get 10 points for each transaction made on the freedom card in addition to 1-5 UR points per dollar spent.
Thanks for the info and link.

What! Don't bring any attention to your accounts for a while (ie no prepayments, swipe gas pumps, etc).
Could someone answer my post 176. I'd like to get in on this b4 it's too late to get that additional 30k. It's been 29 days since my last approval with chase (BA) but not sure if I should wait 45 days and if the CSR's will change this 30k add-on policy by then.

I applied for the card last year and got 25k.  I SM'd for the match to 50k a couple of weeks ago and got it.  Now I just SM'd asking for another 30k.  Hope it works.  My annual fee has been charged on this card and was thinking of using that as leverage if necessary (otherwise I'll cancel).

I signed up for this card with a 50k after 3k spend and
now I see a flyer that says I can Earn 100,000 bonus
points when you spend $500 within the first 3 months. Is
it possible to be upgraded to this offer? Thanks
-----------------------------------
As per the offer on your account, you will receive 50,000
Chase Sapphire bonus points after spending $3,000.00 in
purchases within 93 days of account open date. These
points will post to your account within one to two billing
cycles.

I feel that every relationship is based on mutual trust
and support, including one between a bank and a customer.
As a gesture of commitment to you, I have added additional
50,000 points to the rewards balance on your account.
This adjustment will reflect on your next statement.

I emailed back asking if the $500 cashback was in addition to the 50k points and the response was it was forwarded to the appropriate department and I'll hear back in 3-5 days.

Now, after seeing the mention of the 100k I decided not to wait and SMd this morning requesting 100k. 30 minutes later they responded that I get the 100k! She said it'll be available on my next statement, but when I check on-line it says 50,000 are already available (didn't spend the 3k yet). Amazing!

I got the 100,000 match - (they said they credited the 50,000 and I'll get the other 50,000 after reaching $3,000)
question is for all you people getting extra bonuses (extra 30K etc) -- how would I go about attempting to get those? Are there any other offers they would still match?

Thanks in advance!!!

This is my first post so please bare with me. I just got approved for the 50k/$3k spent promotion on the Sapphire Preferred. Would you all suggest waiting and trying to hit that mark prior to sending a SM requesting the match to the 100k offer or will sending it now not make a difference? Thanks guys.

I will answer but will stay fully covered  :).
Read all the responses that people are getting and you will see that they are all getting the manually added miles now and will get the 50k after spend . So why wait.

Just realized that this card is really great for those that dont/cant spend the 3k . Get the card , SM for the 50k they post right away . 50k UR points for 0 spend ain't bad at all.

Hi,
I am feeling down. When I signed up for this card the sign
up bonus was for 50,000 UR points. I have friends who got
the same card with a 100,000 bonus sign up using offer
code S6V. I would love it if I would be matched to that
offer since I am a loyal chase customer for many years.
Thanks for reading my letter and for your consideration.

1 hour later got this response:
Dear xxxxxxx xxxxxxxx,

I am writing in response to your request for the
additional bonus points on your Chase credit card account.

As per the offer on your account, you will receive 50,000
Chase Sapphire bonus points after spending $3,000.00 in
purchases within 93 days of account open date. These
points will post to your account within one to two billing
cycles. As a gesture of commitment to you, I have added
additional 50,000 points to the rewards balance on your
account. This adjustment will reflect on your next
statement.

You can redeem the 100,000 points in total for a $1,000.00
cashback. In order to view and redeem your rewards
information online, please follow these steps:

1. Log on to our website at www.ultimaterewards.com and

(Posted this in an inferior thread)

Chase denied me the Sapphire. When I called the department about moving around balances, they said I couldn't do anything of that nature until I was approved, and that if I moved around what I currently had, they couldn't guarantee me that would help me get approved.

The problem was the 2 open accounts I have with them (was 3) and 10+ inquiries in the last year. I explained to them how I sign up for cc's that benefit me. 3 times I called, and they put me on hold, and came back and told me they couldn't do a/t.

Any ideas, or specific numbers/arguments I should make?

Thanks all!

They couldnt guarantee that you will be approved when you free up credit , meaning they will have to pass it on for review?Or they said you won't be approved?
Title: Re: 50K Sapphire Preferred Bonus!

I didn't mean it personally. I think if 1000 people took Chase for 190k it would be all over FW/FT/SD etc and would die quickly, if yours is a fluke and a few people match to 100k we should be safe for a few days.

Pigs are known to oink, but I don't know if that's phonetic.

I'm all for pigging out, as long as it doesn't kill the deal (which it often tends to do).

I just called and the rep gave me all types of misinformation on credit reporting of their cards (I was blown away by it). After asking such introductory question he told me "April 22nd" was my opening date, another mistake and had to have meant May 22nd. But my Welcome email was dated May 21st, early in the morning. Do they establish the BA FF# first before the card account is established?

I'm pretty sure they do, that's how they know to send you the dreaded churn letter immediately after sending you the card. It's also why it takes some people a week or two from the date of approval until the account is opened and the card is mailed.

Freedom offers Ultimate Rewards (UR) which can be used for many things.  Sapphire preferred also uses UR and allows you to transfer to CO, Hyatt, or BA at 1:1.  And you can put your UR from freedom into your sapphire UR and transfer all of them to those programs.

The real benefit to freedom is that if you are a chase banking customer you get an additional 10 points per purchase.  This is great for small purchases especially if you then transfer that to CO miles.

I believe the freedom card is offering some cash back sign up bonus (follow Dan's link above).  I am not sure if that comes as actual cash back or in UR points.

Well, they're pretty sophisticated really.  It's just that the review/audit that will happen hasn't run yet.  But it will.  And you should transfer the points out before they get yanked back.  Hopefully, you'll get your 50 that come with the spend.

You have enough points that you don't have to be too picky about where to put them - especially since 90 of them are free...    ;)

If you weren't afraid to keep asking for the points why are you afraid to ask about transferring?

Are you trying to get a specific reward?  Otherwise I still don't see why you don't stick them in your account?

There's nothing to recommend, that's a very personal decision dependent on your own typical miles/point usage needs.

I signed up for this card with a 50k after 3k spend and
now I see a flyer that says I can Earn 100,000 bonus
points when you spend $500 within the first 3 months. Is
it possible to be upgraded to this offer? Thanks
-----------------------------------
As per the offer on your account, you will receive 50,000
Chase Sapphire bonus points after spending $3,000.00 in
purchases within 93 days of account open date. These
points will post to your account within one to two billing
cycles.

I feel that every relationship is based on mutual trust
and support, including one between a bank and a customer.
As a gesture of commitment to you
, I have added additional
50,000 points to the rewards balance on your account.
This adjustment will reflect on your next statement.

Word of mouth advertising comes cheap for these miles, plus the 2% they profit from those that do spend under these offers, and those that they bet will pay interest, not to mention the long term goals of these offers. Plus any kickbacks they are getting from affiliated corporations associated with their relationship with said cardholder.

100k miles for 2% (they don't even make 2%, it gets split a gazillion ways) of $3,000 ($60) is a huge loss. Overall I think they're betting on the longterm here (but not necessarily winning in the end).

I guess the same can be said for any marketing scheme, take for example superbowl commercials. Millions of dollars. Do they know how many more $1 menu specials theyll be selling bc of it?

That's a good point you make there. But many CC bonuses are in miles (not points), and those get paid for whether they are used or not. Granted they pay less since not all points end up being used, but still.

If they obtain 500,000 accounts from this deal, and 5% of them use the card for 8k or more per year (with the other 95% not spending anything). At 8000 x 25000 account = $200,000,000 x .01% take would be $2 million. it's anyones guess how much the upkeep of those accounts are now. I remember citibank used to be about ~$12 per account per year costs back in 1994. So yeah, in that case the maintenance would be $6 million per year. Who has some data on this?

Its normal business practice to lose on the sophisticated consumer in order to reel in the masses.  While here on the forums your dealing with educated players, on the main site many won't get around to SM or will try once and give up, will forget to cancel after a year, or even better will need a card to spend without the ability to pay back. And then there's their friends who don't know anything but heard around the water cooler gossip about the card and don't end up spending the amount in the allotted time frame and even if yes don't even know how to get rid of the points after you get them etc.,etc.

While I don't think they build into their calculations these forums per se. They for sure have it  somewhere on some level built into their marketing cheshbon to keep pros happy.

I like to know how Im gonna be spending that 3K in 3 months, its pretty hefty- so im waiting on some possible assistance from family. and yes I agree with you, i dont think its gonna disappear too fast, they know exactly wats going on and theyre honoring it anyways. Just like Amex (gold, plat). I actually just got my mom matched for UA the other day, piece of cake.

I Hear that.
They must know that not all these people were targeted for this offer or they would demand proof.
However, people will probably not get more than 100k as some have reported,
Kinda like the 55k co miles plus 50 dollars back, when they gave you option of one or the other.

Also let's not forgot that this is an internal points system which gives them more control over the points.

Of course there is no guarantee..........

Then ask for it on a card name that doesn't even exist, and watch them dump the miles onto all your available accounts. Then you know something is really wrong. :o

What code is the 30K? Where is it coming from that they should match it?

ppl are just writing that they feel down, so chase is giving out free "feel better" points- basically just pick a number and ask them for it. of course make it sound like u know wat ur saying.

The only partners of Chase Sappire that I use is Continental.
I dont need CO miles immediately, so I was just wondering if there is any advantage in leaving the points in the Chase Sapphire account, or I may as well just transfer it straight away to CO.
Thanks.

We have to remember that we are getting numbed by these insane offers recently the 100 BA the 75K citi (225K for those who were on the ball) Amex 100K and 75K with matching. Not that long ago we would of been dancing for these offers , however then it was MUCH easier to churn so we didn't need big incentives.
how 225k?

read the Citi thread . They are still around however the Amex is now a 4k spend. Regarding your card its a YMMV , but if you have it for a while it usually isn't a problem.

Not true.  They don't pull back signup bonus miles-bad reps just threaten that sometimes to get you to stay.

However if you buy something, get the miles, and return it, Chase will be all to happy to pull back the miles, they definitely are able to.

promotional offer for Chase Sapphire account.

I understand that you have received an offer for 50,000
reward points and would like to receive an offer of
100,000 points. It is never our intention to cause
inconvenience to our customers due to the different
offers. The offer which you received was the offer
promoted at the time of your application.

Further, it is the marketing team which decides such
offers and promotes them for new customers while the
application processes. Keeping the volatility of the
markets in mind, different offers are made available at
different times. Please note that the offer was an
acquisition test offer only and was sent to a select
customers through direct mail. Regretfully, this is a non
transferable offer, therefore, I am unable to honor your
request for 100,000 bonus points as a sign up offer.

I sincerely apologize that I am unable to meet your
expectations in this matter. Nothing would have pleased
me more than to provide the resolution you are seeking.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the
Secure Message Center.

Thank you,

Hi,
I am feeling down. When I signed up for this card the
signup bonus was for 50,000 UR points. I have friends who
got the same card with a 100,000 bonus sign up using offer
code S6V. I would love it if I would be matched to that
offer since I am a loyal chase customer.

Thanks for reading my letter and for your consideration

Did anyone get the bonus applied to an already downgraded card? Got it for two out of three family members-one brand new, one from last year. Last years took two tries. The third card is now plain Sapphire and still refusing to give anything but 2500 points after four tries. Would you give up or keep trying? Getting into the "how much hishtadlus" mode myself...

There are no more strategies. Chase finally wised up. They are rejecting all requests for additional bonuses if you have not personally received that specific 100,000 offer.

I've been rejected 5 times already but knew it was a long shot. I've had the card for one year already.  All the responses have said that they only match in the first 90 days after you get your card.  So I'm surprised that they're rejecting new cardholders.

I think the difference is, they will usually match an offer for a recently opened card (90 days or so) to an offer that's open to the public. For some reason the CR's at Chase were allowing matches to a very limited and targeted offer meant for a very select few customers. Who knows why it took them this long to figure out their own offers. Otherwise, yes they usually will bump up your previous offer.

Chase is not dumb! They probably are elite members on DDF and Flyertalk.
They know exactly what they are doing. Does anyone care to disagree?

The question now is, why did they stop matching

I understand why they might only match after you hit 3k in spend  but why cut it off all together?

I wish. I think the window for finding the "last to know" CR has closed. Looks like they've all received the official "denial" form email response. Now it's just a question of whether they come after the points they've already given out and have committed to giving in writing before now. I wouldn't think they'd go back on their word and risk the PR fiasco.

they are still matching UA , which while the 50K offer is more widespread is still only for targeted people.

.01% chance they would go after points givin already. It was givin in good faith, to people who didn't lie when asking for it. They wouldn't dare risk the fallout even for those that bent the truth. Those who were promised after they spend might have a harder time but with persistence will get it since its in writing, unless they wrote that they were targeted not that they feel bad because that would give an excuse to deny.

Like I said, I think it was just an honest mistake in the first place. They do have a policy of matching better offers within a certain time period but not necessarily all offers. This was a very limited and targeted offer not meant for the general public. And I don't think it is a coincidence that most of this all occurred over the weekend when most of the suits who really know what's going on are playing golf. It took until today for someone upstairs to notice what the heck what was going on. CR's are entry level positions and they probably weren't too up on this particular deal they were freely matching. The perfect storm.

I'm sure once in a while there may be an exception to the rule but think about it. There's no way they are going to have a blanket rule of matching any offer out there, including targeted. That would just result in sitting on the FlyerTalk forums and collecting all the best targeted offers people are getting and then just get 'em all matched. Not going to happen. Once in a while a fluke or mistake or some brief very good will but definitely not a standard practice.

Amex and other CC companies do it all the time even to targetted offers. Chase which is known to be great with CS has been and I would think would continue to be at the forefront of accommodating people . The CSR that were giving the match weren't coming from nowhere they were coming from company policy to match . They don't make up rules. This sounds like one puffed up penguin who decided to put his foot down. If I would know someone in Chase I would let him know that he's causing a PR fiasco . Here there are hundreds probably thousands of people who signed up for this card yesterday thinking they are getting a 100K bonus , does Chase really want that bad feeling in their mouth . Even if Chase is correct?? I think they blew it by stopping it in middle of the rush. Don't give it at all or phase it out in a week or 2.

It's not actually me saying the matching is done. I'm just relaying what Chase customer reps are saying. They are saying the deal is dead. But hope springs eternal. Maybe they'll change their minds again tomorrow. (But somehow I kind of doubt it.)

And regardless of what others may have received, I'm not sure one has much to complain about when they sign up for a card that stipulates a specific deal and then they actually receive that very deal that was explicitly explained in the application filled out.

Agreed. As long as they didn't claim anything fraudulent, I think Chase has an obligation to follow through on their commitment. No one was holding a gun to their head. They offered those bonuses which came with phrases like, and I quote, "mutual trust", "support", "gesture of commitment." A little hard to go back on that.

First off yes the other companies are doing it all the time, you just need to get the right CSR.

Secondly I don't know where you learned PR from. PR doesn't mean you are correct it means keeping goodwill with the public .If the public "feels" robbed its terrible business. For a company that blows tens of millions on PR this is a stupid move. Like I said stopping it now is a bad PR move , make people ask twice , only give it after you spend the 3K and assume many won't spend or will forget ,wait a few weeks and phase it out. Don't cut your nose to spite your face.

Oh and one more thing I got my bonus without bending the truth. Total good will.

Secondly I don't know where you learned PR from. PR doesn't mean you are correct it means keeping goodwill with the public .If the public "feels" robbed its terrible business. For a company that blows tens of millions on PR this is a stupid move. Like I said stopping it now is a bad PR move , make people ask twice , only give it after you spend the 3K and assume many won't spend or will forget ,wait a few weeks and phase it out. Don't cut your nose to spite your face.

Oh and one more thing I got my bonus without bending the truth. Total good will.
+1, well said yaakov, and by golly i hope youre rite.

they are still matching UA , which while the 50K offer is more widespread is still only for targeted people.
I just tried to get 50K on the UA and got denied.

I give up. There's no way I can withstand your perceptive detective work. Yes, I'm actually the CEO of Chase.
Just kidding.
I'm really not.
I already said I didn't work for Chase but thanks for asking 100 times.
But seriously, even if I worked for Chase, do you seriously think placing disinformation or whatever on some relatively obscure message board (nothing personal Dan) would accomplish anything either way for Chase? You guys are hilarious.
I was just sharing what little info I have (and what's easily available for anyone who has the time to waste looking) in hopes it might help someone.
Guess I'll think twice about that next time.
Hope everyone manages to get their extra 50K!

You've convinced me. You're right. I'm wrong. Other companies are always giving out additional matching bonuses. I have no idea how I came to any other conclusion. Congrats on the good will.
(And you've also convinced me with your perceptive insight that if a business is making the public feel like they are being robbed, then that is not good PR. Making people feel bad is bad PR. Again, I have no idea how I came to any other conclusion. Thanks for the help!)

So after all the declines last night, I thought maybe they weren't
matching the 100k offer but might still match the 80k offer.
So I sm'ed them about an hour ago and got a response immediately
that it was a targeted offer and they won't match it. Anybody have
an idea how we can get chase to restart matching.

If Dan posts it on the main sight that chase is no longer honoring this
match, do you think it will make a difference?

It seems they only give these instant approvals on people that have no history with Chase as I, my friend and sister were all instantly approved with our first chase apps. App status told me to wait 2 weeks.

Anyone know if I downgrade my sapphire preferred to a regular sapphire at the end of the year to avoid the annual fee, would it remain the same account as the preferred? Because I'm thinking of using this card to purchase a laptop and I want to have the extended warranty so I need to keep the card open in order to still have the warranty valid

But rest assured, if you were really destined to earn a extra $500-600 this year, then even though Chase may have changed their policy now, and you can't get these points, you will still find a way to make the extra $500-600 before the year is over :D

I had sent chase an email about referring someone for the deal after I received the 100k and this is the response:
Quote
Dear ,

I am writing in response to your inquiry about the
referral promotion offer for Chase Sapphire Preferred
card.

Unfortunately, there is no referral for the Sapphire
Preferred card as this is an exclusive offer that we are
extending only to a selected population of customers.

As you are one of our valuable customer, we added those
extra bonus points to your account. However, we would like
to inform you that this offer cannot be extended for as
the promotion of 100,000 points is limited only for
certain customers.

I am glad to clarify this information for you. If you have
any further questions, please reply using the Secure
Message Center.

They gave him The 30k and should have given him 20k to get to 50k, and then another 50k upon meeting spend, so 100k.

Good Morning,

I just signed up for the Sapphire Preferred with a bonus
offer of 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points if I spend $3,000
in three months. A friend of mine just got approved for an
offer of 100,000 points if he just spent $500 in the first
three months. I m a bit disappointed that I signed up
under the 50,000 offer when there is a 100,000 offer
available as well. Would it be possible to be upgraded to
the 100,000 offer? I greatly appreciate your
consideration. Thank you.

The current rate is $800 for 50k

Do u know the worth of MR points?

Also which airlines miles are the most valuable? i.e. if i do a transfer from amex or chase and in terms of earning for flying?

Thanks.

I do not buy miles. I was just noting the highest advertised rate that I've seen for saphire points.

Unbelievable, but after NINE messages sent to
chase regarding them promising me the 50000
points but then not crediting them, they finally
came through. 4 days passed after my last
email, so I figured they were done even talking
to me about it after so many denials. But today
received a message that said they are happy to
give me the points now and they were showing
in my account. I had given up hope. Happy
ending.

That's when AMEX points stop transferring to CO and when Sapphire points will be the sole way of transferring points tosomeone's CO account.

So does that mean that co miles will be worth more as well? Should I hold off on selling my co miles? Tganx

A sapphire preferred or just regular sapphire?
The reports Ive read are that people have not had luck changing the sapphire over to preferred and getting the bonus but its worth a shot.  The other option is just to apply for preferred and if need be to then offer to close the regular sapphire.

If it is sapphire preferred then you can try closing it and reapplying but I doubt they would give you the bonus without reapplying.
Title: Re: 50K Sapphire Preferred Bonus!
Post by: compddd on June 27, 2011, 01:07:45 PM
If you have regular sapphire you will need to close it and then apply for sapphire preferred using the 50k sign up link.

This is what I had to do to get the bonus.

So i have been messaging chase for the past week asking them why it hasnt gone through and to push it through and today instead of pushing it through once they pushed it through twice so instead of 60k CO i got 120k CO  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D so i have gotten over 300k points/miles from this card and am still expecting the 50k for spending 3k

Looks like some quirky thing with how your account is set up, good stuff. Have spend deposits (the regular monthly non-bonus ones) post doubly to your account as well? If yes, it means you have a Sapphire preferred that gives you two points per dollar...

Dear xxx,

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you today.

I called Continental and added 60,000 miles to your
OnePass number UK553827 today. They are available for
your use.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the

Thank you,
but even after that the status still said open. but now it says complete so i think the rep called and just deposited 60k and then the comp maybe finally  processed the order and deposited the 60k also

I had a similar incident last year.  I transferred the 28,000 UR points from my Sapphire card to my CO account, but I clicked it twice since the browser was lagging.  They deposited 56,000 miles in my CO.  Unfortunately,  4 months later they took back the second deposit of 28k (took them right out of my CO account mind you).  That was the first mileage card I ever opened and I'm hoarding miles to use on a trip to Israel next year, so I didn't have enough miles yet to make use of them right away before the mistake was found out.

Looks like this deal is done
here is my email exchange with chase:
I am writing in reference to your inquiry about the
joining bonus for 100,000 points on your Chase Sapphire
card ending in 5862.

Thank you for your interest in the Chase Sapphire bonus
points offer.

The 100,000 bonus points offer was made through a small
direct mail test and is non-transferable. The Offer Code
and Invitation Number included in the mailing can only be
applied to the recipient?s account. If you are not listed
as the addressee of the mailing, we will be unable to
apply the offer to your account. I understand you may be
disappointed and I am sincerely sorry for any confusion.
Please know that we will consider reviewing the terms of
other offers you receive in the future.

I am glad I was able to clarify this for you. If you have
any further questions, please reply using the Secure
Message Center.

Thank you,

Pratiksha Jagger
E-mail Customer Service Advisor

and then I replied


I must admit that I am pretty disappointed that you will not match that offer. While I appreciate your offer, I was expecting to be matched for 100k points as many of my friends who recommended the card to me have.

and they replied:

My name is Tamseel and I appreciate the opportunity in
assisting you today.

In response to your e-mail, I understand that few
ineligible customers have received additional 50,000 bonus
points, however this was done in error and these were
subsequently taken away from their added points.

We will be unable to honor the request to apply the
additional 50,000 points offer to your account. As much
as I want to help you, nothing would have pleased me more
than to provide the resolution you are seeking and any
dissatisfaction caused to you is regretted.

At that time I was later reconned for 2 open accounts between May 12th and May 19th. Not sure if a third recon will work in 45 days of each other. EQ Average age ~2.4 years, multiple cards with perfect history and moderate to medium lines, but opened accounts from chase and C1 in the last 6 months. Fico 790. Not sure I should risk the recon since I put income 85-95k which mostly included my mother's who I live with and would not be willing to disclose her income. Last apps 50 days ago I put 52k.

i called recon guys 2nd time this week. it last twenty minutes and I managed to talk to supervisor. But still failed. My credit lines are increasing too fast. They do not buy my stories. I am wondering if I tried tomorrow or sometime later, what is the chance I could talk to a different supervisor? upset....

been getting was its under review and last night a lady said its still under review but she doesen't think it will be
 approved because of recent applications.

BA card- in April
Sapphire card- same day double app as the Hyatt.

I don't think there's a difference which recon you call, YMMV either way, depending on who you talk to and how well you sweet-talk them.

Im just sharing my experiences, of course I had no idea theyre one and the same, but to me it seemed that credit analysts are more powerful and better to work with. Some were nice and some ballbusters, but at the end they got all 3 cards done while the 'recon number' rejected me a few times saying we dont transfer credit or close ccs. Perhaps it was just my luck.....

I got a letter in the mail today stating that my request for the British Airways visa has been approved :). Now should I still try with the United card I applied for at the same time? I'm just afraid to mess up the BA card... Any advise of what to say this time? BTW it seems that 888-245-0625 (Credit Analyst - Recons) is a better number to call.
To all the folks out there who have been denied for the ba card...TAKE HEART!!!I was denied like all the rest of us and after calling a few times the Application reconsideration number I was told that I would have to prove my income etc... So I called the credit analyst number (1888-245-0625) and first they told me exactly what I was been told till now. I got another phone call and I hung up without even saying bye. After I finished my phone call I receive a phone call from Chase. The guy basicaly told me that I didnt give him a chance to finish his sentence (!) and they can approve me for 5,000 if I answered a few 'security' questions!

First of all, if you haven't offered to transfer credit lines or close 'em, call back and ask.

Also, call towards the end of 30 days from your application date (but not 30 or more), maybe you'll have better luck then.

i offered them 5 times to close my card the co . and then to get the sapphire card but thay keep on saying that thay need a active card in this cace the sapphire card to transfer the credit line to it. cuz thay need to fill in a number in the blank spot so without having the cc number thay are not able to do that

spoke to recon and cs rep then a superviser even the landing dept. i dont want my account should be red flaged cuz of my calling so much

If the csr is too interrogative, ask for a supervisor or anyone else.

What was the reason for denial? I got denied for my AA Business Visa because they said my business was too new to evaluate. Think a supervisor could override it? How long do I have from the date of denial to get it pushed through, 30 days?

I don't think I would worry about. They honored it for me, and from what I've read, I think even if a low-level CSR denied it, if you go up to supervisors, they will honor it as promised.

id be very impressed if anyone could pull off an extra 50k now with chase they clamped down completely. (i happen to have gotten 100k but that was when they were matching)

Post by: atlas310 on July 22, 2011, 08:31:15 PM
Just a follow up, but after they told me in the previous correspondence they sent that granting me the 100k was a mistake and that they wouldn't be able to give me the 100k after all because I wasn't targeted, I sent an email expressing my disappointment and that I understood their position, but that it just sucked for them to make a promise then to renege on that promise, they replied that they would send it up to a higher department. Received a message this morning:

I am pleased to respond to your inquiry this afternoon.

I am pleased to advise that I did add the 50,000 points
that were promised on the June 21, 2011 e-mail response
for the 100,000 enrollment bonus point offer. You will see
this adjustment on the next monthly statement. This
adjustment will be available for redemption online within
24 to 48 hours.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the
Secure Message Center.


I replied thanking them and asking them to clarify so I can make sure that this is the additional 50k on top of my  original 50k, but it sounds like they went ahead and gave it to me for which I consider myself really lucky.

The new great benefit is 2 points per dollar spent on travel (hotels, car rental, flights ) or dining. Or 3 points per dollar if going through the Ultimate rewards booking engine.
It is a new permanent benefit, as of July 17.

So really it's 2.14 points per dollar on dining, flights, hotels, and car rentals as there's also the 7% point dividend on all points earned.

Plus no Forex...pretty sweet card.

It's not a published benefit, but it definitely applies to anyone with a chase checking account and a freedom card.
The sapphire card isn't required, but that allows you to transfer points into miles.

Post by: Ike on July 24, 2011, 05:11:12 PM
So any charge on my sapphire card would result in 10 points if I got all 3? (Checking, Freedom, Sapphire) Do they credit it automatically?
Title: Re: 50K Sapphire Preferred Bonus!
Post by: Ike on July 24, 2011, 05:13:57 PM
If you got all 3, wouldn't it be better than any airline or hotel CC? With the Sapphire you can transfer to any airline or hotel program and each dollar would be 10 points?

No, the charge has to be on the freedom card.

Huh?
If you have Freedom+checking you get 10 points per transaction made on the freedom card.  That's on top of 1 point per dollar, or 5 points per dollar in rotating categories.

You can then transfer those earned points to Sapphire Preferred from where you can transfer out to CO or Hyatt, etc.

Just to report...

Sent an SM asking for the 100K bonus, especially since it was my first card (honest first application!). Got a reply asking for an invitation code, name and zip. Boohoo :( Guess I'll just celebrate with 50K :)
Title: Re: 50K Sapphire Preferred Bonus!
Post by: azhoopsfan on July 25, 2011, 04:27:20 PM
FYI,

The double points on dining benefit also applies to the regular Sapphire Card (and not just the Preferred card).  This is good for those that downgraded to avoid the annual fee.

Even if it were true, after how Chase reacted to the targeted preferred offer, I'd be hesitant to sign up for the non-preferred in the mere hopes of getting it matched. Chase ain't Amex.

Please clarify whether (i) you just now requested a match for the first time, or (ii) you previously requested a match when everyone else was getting matched (about a month ago) and are just now confirming that you're getting what they previously promised you.

I'd say that with persistence (and other things), one can definitely still get matched to 100k, but not saying everyone who tries will succeed (you have to be lucky and get the right reps/supervisors, then say the right things).

Fair enough, but if the code is notated and people (manually?) get 50k after $750 spend, they might get lucky and (automatically?) get another 50k after $3k spend.

If I'm not mistaken, isn't this promo for the REGULAR Chase Sapphire and not the Chase Sapphire Preferred which this thread is regarding?  The reference may way, but I don't think it'd work for all the individuals who applied for the Preferred card, which also has the $3K/3mo offer.

Does anyone know what the story is with this new chase sapphire card with a 100k signup bonus????
I hear that the new deal is 100,000 points for $500 spend in 3 months. It's for the regular sapphire (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/sapphire/) not the preferred so no annual fee. Offer code is X1P

I believe that ultimate reward points on the regular chase sapphire card CANNOT be transferred out to CO or BA, for example. I was under the impression that only sapphire preferred accts can transfer out their UR points.

If the above is true, that would make this offer much less attractive, IMHO.

Can anyone confirm or reject the above??

Thanks

you can always transfer it to someone with sapphire preferred who would then transfer it to your ff account

Sorry DZ, the 100K Chase SP bonus match has been dead for quite a while. No code will get you the deal now. Next time, before you post, please read the rest of the thread to see the current news on how the deal's going. We'd be much more friendly in answering your questions that way, thanks!

Whoever claimed that the 100,000 could still be alive with tchiyas hameisim.

i contact the executive branch twice, and they responded both times negatively. I went ahead and sent a letter to the office of the president. I got a call yesterday from them, with explanation etc bla bla bla bla, after being on the phone for 20 minutes, I saw that they are really closed on this issue.
So I think that even tchiyas hameisim won't get this deal alive.

I could use some advice.

Until recently I had CO and BA with chase. I recently (3 weeks ago) applied for a triple browser (what a chap Dan!) for SW, Sapphire, and United.

Of course I froze my Experian and Equifax (thanks again Dan). I got an approval for the SW only and received letters regarding the Sapphire and United that I need to lift my Equifax freeze.

I of course called reconsideration (thanks again again Dan) and told them that they had already hit up my TU. The CSR worked with me and allowed me to take credit line from my BA and she instantly approved me for Sapphire.

Sounds great b...

Problem is she said no way in the word she can give me United EVEN if I close BA or CO because I simply applied for too many cards. I would greatly appreciate if someone can please advise.

Thanks!

Not at all. you think the world ends by us few people, I confirmed with the executive I dealt with, that I was the first person that was asking him on this issue, and nobody reached him till then regarding this issue. So, I don't know if the reason is because only a few people called in the executive, or that there are ton's of executives around there. But one thing is definitely sure, that they aren't DDF readers, and they don't have the same point of view that you have. :P

Dan,
I applied for the United and Sapphire Preferred cards last week. I was rejected for the Sapphire Preferred because I had too many requests for credit with Chase. I called reconsideration (Thanks Dan!) and was told that the real reason that I was rejected, was because I had been accepted for the United card!! All I had to do was ask, and they immediately and without any difficulty transferred credit from the new United account to a new, approved Sapphire Preferred account! Thanks Dan!

Here's a question though. I also applied for the Citi Preferred and Citi Premier cards. I was accepted for the Preferred, but when I tried to submit my application for the Citi Premier, I received a message along the lines of: 'this request cannot be made at this time'. I refreshed multiple times (believe me lol), but to no avail. Has anyone had this experience? Is there any way to ask Citi for consideration?

Thanks for your help!

Two people? That's likely your first mistaken assumption. And, second - the proof is in the pudding regarding possibly "changing company policy." Did Chase stop matching offers on this Sapphire card, or not? Yea, that's what I thought.

But after changing. what else could someone lose by trying??, if they changed, they changed anyway, and if he will have luck, good luck. You would rather have to campaign not to ask them to match, while they were still matching, then you had chances. now there is nothing what to lose.

I must admit that I do not completely follow what you seem to be saying, but to the extent I am able to glean something from it, I would point out that dozens of phone calls to the executive office will change the policy in the executive office as well. For example, I know people who had successfully matched the offer through the CEO (Chase Exec Office), and then after awhile, even the CEO stopped matching. After enough unsuccessful matches, the CEO may change its policy not to match offers if not specifically targeted.

All I am saying is that after enough people have gotten rejected at the CEO level, I'd say your hurting the chances the CEO will continue to come through in the future, IMHO.

I got this Sapphire preferred offer after calling recon 3 times and finally get my way, I now got an offer for the CO PP card with no annual fee for the first year and I want to get it, (since i already got my 50,000 points and transferred the already) would i be able to do a product change from the sapphire preferred to the CO PP? or if i just apply as new and get rejected (I most likely will) can i have chase transfer the credit line from the SP to the PP? or are they different types or cards?

I've been told that the PP is a charge card, but my offer seems to imply it's a credit card especially since there is an APR.

BTW, I spoke to my Chase Sapphire pet/insider/favorite CSR today and he told me he's seen a few accounts that had promotions for bonus miles with x transactions a month, unfortunately he couldn't add it to my account.

Let's just say he's been "helping me with something" for some time now. When the time comes I'll spill the beans, for now I'll try to keep him (hidden) in my pocket.

As the bank Guru, could Dan or any other experts here, tell me if I am risking my many year
relationship with Chase.

   Five weeks ago I got the Sapphire preferred, one week ago I got the Chase Hyatt and now i am considering the Chase Ink Bold (personal biz? ) I would wait about 3 weeks for this app.

Do I run the risk of chase canceling my checking account/ cards etc by doing this. Cancelling my checking would be a PITA as I do all my online banking , bill pay etc. via chase.

Any grammatical or typing errors can be blamed on this darn IPad.
Thanks

Nothing to worry about.  If chase didn't want you to have those cards, they wouldn't have approved them.
Many on this forum, myself included, have way more than 3 from chase.

  I guess I forgot to mention that I would not keep the es that have yearly fees. As I now  have 3 Amex 3 Citi and 3 chase I will have to really juggle to get retention incentives , or cancel quite a few of them.

I am retired and my yearly spend on CCs is not too high. I would guesstimate  normally 20k but higher lately with credit card apps, which will be unsustainable . 

Unfortunately my landlord in NYC does not accept any of the creative payment methods, and my rent is prolly my largest monthly expense. Thus my fear of canceling Chase cards in the future after I get points  free rooms etc.

It still does not matter. Signing up for multiple Chase credit cards will not prompt the boot from Chase. If they don't want to approve your multiple apps, they won't.

I am newbie to this forum but have been reading the OTHER ONE for 5 months.

Just wanted to get An opinion from you guys as to whether it's worth it to keep the chase cards as they are supposedly non churnable .

I will prolly fight for retention on my 3 citi cards or do you subscribe to the theory cancel immediately after first 8 months to be re religible for next promo? I have heard differing opinions .

Also going to have 3 or more Chase cards and I hear they are stricter than Amex and Citi. So with 9 +
Cards I wanted to get another set of eyes on my situation, and how to handle it seeing as how Dan
And friends seem to be the most successful

That being the case... let's say I have a 20K limit, can I spend 35K without worrying or being assessed fees?

EDIT x2:

This seems to explain it, and the answer seems to be YMMV.

There's also another (more recent) one but I can't find it.




u misunderstood my intentions the DDFrs i quoted wrote  tht they told chase tht they reffered ppl and chase went ahead and gave them points, my intent was to do the same, and ask chase to give me the same bump of points, but being tht i like to sound more secure with myself when talking to the a chase rep, i was interested if they have such a program so i can refer to it . if u would know me personally u would know tht i have no intentions to open a referral site, or such, i always, even though i had an amazon account b4 i knew of dd existence, i see something there and go out and sign in via dans links, cuz i feel we all owe it to dan for putting together such a nice piece of work . i personally recommended dd site to 10s of ppl in all walks of life, which i hope was lucrative on dans behalf, so linking me to posts of those tht try to steal or jeopardize dans income was totally off and offensive ,

For those who are churning the Sapphire Preferred, are you keeping your old one open and applying for a new one, then once denied (due to not being able to have 2 at the same time) calling them up and have them cancel the old one and approve the new one?

Or are you cancelling your old one first and then applying for another one?
Title: Re: 50K Sapphire Preferred Bonus!
Post by: bem684 on December 23, 2011, 11:57:58 AM
I would assume one must cancel the old one before applying for  new one.  It's very obvious that you only want the signup bonus if you cancel the old one in order to open a new one in the same call.

Oh ok, is there a 60 day waiting period after closing a Saph Pref before applying for a new one? Similar to Amex?

Can I have them transfer my CL from the Saph Pref to another of my Chase cards when I close it?

With Chase 30 days (a full billing cycle) should be sufficient.

You can move your credit line when closing a card.

If they just matched it then you won't get the 7%, because it's registered as a "courtesy adjustment".

this has been discussed in a lot of Forums. that's what it seems to be. Otherwise, a person can transfer million miles back and forth from one account to another, and they all come up as courtesy adjustments, so this will earn a lot of miles.

Points transfers show up as points transfers, adjustments show  as adjustments. Just because transfers don't qualify, doesn't mean adjustments don't either.

If your sp has a cl of 7k, you can move over 2k to another card. - but not a dollar more than that.

In summary; you can move credit from your sp as long as it won't cause it to drop under 5k.
This  specifically only applies to sp.

I'm confirming that the sp can't exist without a 5k cl. It can't be opened with less then that and it can't be lowered at a later time to less then that.

OTOH, I have the CO OPP now with a 4k limit. So I would to confirm as AsherO already mentioned that it can be dropped to under 5k at a later time. I cannot confirm whether or not you need 5k to get it approved.

Btw, a bit OT, When I had my CO IPP cl dropped from 5k to 4k I lost some benefits. E.g. primary CDW, return protection etc. See this thread

In the end they gave me the points as a adjustment, I just got my UR points for December And they gave me the standard 2x bonus for apple purchase through the Ur mall.
So I ended up getting 13x the points for the iPhones so 6 iPhones at $649=3894 x13 =50,622 that's on top of the signup bonus

If you have both and can freely transfer points from Freedom to Sapphire, then unless you need to hit a SP minimum spend, or unless I am mistaken, I don't see why you would use the Sapphire on gas in Q1.

Also curious about the original question, when does the 7% come through, and I was actually under the assumption (very different from what I am reading here) that it was tied to your anniversary year. This was intuitive to me because I likened it to Citi's "anniversary" bonus of 1-5% you get on points earned with the ThankYou Premier on your anniversary date, or cards that give you a free domestic flight per year it is usually based on anniversary year not calendar year (at least in my experience, again, with the Citi TYP card). So if someone has answer I would also love to know!

2 Added questions about the Sapphire preferred which I recently opened:
- If I convert from Preferred to regular after 11 months to avoid the fee, will I still get 7% based on whatever I earned during those 11 months?
- If I convert from Preferred to regular, do I lose the ability to transfer existing UR points from SP to airlines? I don't want to lose this ability, any other ideas?

- If I convert from Preferred to regular after 11 months to avoid the fee, will I still get 7% based on whatever I earned during those 11 months?

I'm not sure, but if the Sapphire pays a 7% dividend then I'm confident they'll adjust it for you manually if necessary.

- If I convert from Preferred to regular, do I lose the ability to transfer existing UR points from SP to airlines? I don't want to lose this ability, any other ideas?

You will lose the ability to transfer to airlines. You can get an Ink Bold (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/inkbold/) that'll allow for airline transfer, or transfer your Chase UR points to someone else's SP/IB account.

you don't have to convert until you get the bill with the fee, and you have all the way to the day the payment is due, then convert and you won't have to pay the fee. So you have at least another month and a half to get the 7% bonus.

Thanks that's good to know. I also went into a Chase branch to open a savings account for $100 promotion and the banker told me I could convert from Preferred to Regular after the annual fee already hits but within a certain grace period of a month or more and it'll be refunded and converted, no questions asked. Which is consistent.

But does this mean the dividend is paid on card anniversary?

Post by: Dan on January 19, 2012, 11:46:59 AM
Freedom is 10%+10 points, Ink Bold is 20%.
If you aren't going for an Ink Bold threshold bonus (at 25/50/100K) the cutoff on non-bonus categories is $100 (less goes on Freedom, more goes on Ink Bold).  If you're going for a threshold bonus then all bets are off.

I'm in the mood of applying for another SP, anybody else was successful except Dan? Is there any risk at all trying to apply again? Is it safer to convert the first one to a mastercard first, so I can tell them that I want both? Ideas..?

Does parking/traffic tickets count as travel? (It has been confirmed that tolls do count, that's my basis for this question)
i paid a ticket in ny with my SP and it came up as a charge from NYC PARKING FINE- WEB and in the end-of-year summary,it did NOT post as a travel related expense,hence no double points :(

Cant hurt to call and say it shouldve qualified. They keep giving me 1k-5k each time I call in about a charge that didnt get double points... and the charges are only $30-40 :D

As Feb has approached, it would be great if people start posting here if they got the 7% annual bonus when their statement closes, and if it applied to signup and/or adjustments. My closing date it on the 10th.

IIRC online  (in UR section) there's a difference between transfers and courtesy adjustments.

I hope it's on both, that's at least an extra 10k for me :D

It it crazy for me to keep shuffling my UR to another one of my cards and back each month? If I do 100k once each month, that's 85k in dividends for the year.

yea and the points total from the email doesnt match the points total on my dec statement. but maybe points transferred in count but it also subtracts points transferred out? cause i have also transferred alot out?

I've just received the email stating the following:

I got the 50k Signup and was part of the lucky group who received the additional 50k points (that 2 day period it worked)
I transferred about 8200 points and spent about $10k in 2011.

That's a total of 118,000 points and if I'm right, I got the 7% divdent on the 2nd 50k bonus as well as on the 8200 points transferred from my debit card ultimate rewards.

Only thing worrying me though is that it says it has already posted to my account and I don't see it yet..

Nope I think it's year earned, but they have a bug in the calculation affected by points no longer in the account. But it's too early to be conclusive, we need a bigger sample.

Funny part in my case is that I did get 7% on the double Signup but the email says that my summary as of December 2011 was 59k and in fact it was 118k.. But I did get 8200 dividend points (which I assume applied to the 118k).. So if I SM them can I get an additional chunk of dividend points since the email states my Dec total was 59k?

so i sm'd with an attachment of the email i received. they said it was a mistake and verified that i only have 18,000.

however they did give me 2500 bonus. so it pays to ask.!!

I received my bonus but no email with it explaining the point totals.  I got the 100k sign up bonus and have earned some points on purchases (and transferred a significant amount of freedom points) and received 4303 for the 7%.  That seems low but id like to look at that how they calculated that before I call.  Did they email everyone right when they received the bonus or did it come later?

Yes - Courtesy Adjustment.  It might be significant that I redeemed the points that I transferred so perhaps at that point they are recognized as points earned instead of transferred? Just a theory.

I have a Sapphire Preferred that is still active, but I want to churn the 50k bonus which Dan said he's done a couple of times already.

What's the best strategy to do this?

1. Close card, wait 30 days and then reapply
2. Apply with other Saph Pref still open and try and get recon to move the credit line over to new card and close old card

Can anyone who has churned it share what they did?

The following 2 things are (among others) stringed to trigger the Chase Review:
1. Churning cards for points
2. When they realize your credit limit is more than 70-80% of your annual income.

When I applied she still had the first one as a visa (I wanted to see if it was possible to have the app switched, but it was a no go). It got declined for having the same card, once I had the first card switched I then got her approved by closing her recently opened Southwest card (part of the 3bm that included the original SP). I wanted to close it anyway after redeeming the 50k for GCs so as not to pay the fee.

You will see both cards listed on your account online (although one of them is closed). Every transaction you make will be reflected on both including your point balance. Don't get so excited when you see double amount of points, if you try switching out from one it will deduct from both.

Lol sometimes its worth getting very excited like I just did with the chase sapphire SCR.
I asked why I see double charges and that it really doesn't look good for me if my spouse checks my spending....
I then asked if they wanted to give me any points for this because it seems very unprofessional that I see it double  , got 8k off it.

lol! i tried transferring! it didn't work!

Every detail about the 2 accounts are identical, every purchase and credit show up in both and they both show the same original CL

Even the UR points both show up the same amount each.
(When I was playing around on the UR website I saw the option of transferring from one account to the other so I attempted a transfer from the Visa to the MC and on the the next screen it showed me that I would end up with double the miles, but when I submitted the transfer it still left me with the original amount in both accounts! too bad :(

you forgot to bold "originally"  also you didn't read the previous quote from me which said that he switched a visa SP to the wmc SP.

Is there any benefit the visa have but not the mc? Would need some argument and explain why you need a new visa when you have the mc.

I'm a little confused. I'm on the phone with cs and they said that if I currently have the sapphire preferred visa, I can downgrade to a regular sapphire world master card but not to the sapphire preferred world master card (apparently they are not currently able to switch to the preferred mc). Is that what I want or I want the sapphire preferred world master card

If I downgraded my Sapphire Preferred Visa to Sapphire regular (I didn't switch it to SP WMC), can I re-apply for the Preferred?
If yes, how long should I wait after the downgrade?

Can anyone answer? Thanks!

my request to get my visa preferred switched to a world master card preferred was approved. The cs rep said that if I decided to keep the wmc and then I want a visa preferred too, I would automatically get rejected because each person can only have 1 preferred card. Is she correct or if I apply fore the visa after switching my old visa to mc, I will get approved?

Even if this were officially true, it is not practically true, as evidenced by many on DDF.

That depends on a number of factors beyond the fact that your applying for a second SP.

Looks like the 50k bonus may be coming to a close at some point. Chase's official ad for it is now showing a 40k bonus.

I'm sure that there will be many of the 50k offers floating out there for a while, but best to jump on sooner than later.

its an automated service that tells you ur status, - if its being reviewed and when they'll get back to you. if it says 2 weeks than you have a good chance of approval - if it says 7-10 days than you may get rejected and then i would call (as to what DDF members write) so i went to check if thats what it would say.

you probably have one already denied. which cards did u include in the 2bm?

Call the recon # 888-270-2127 and tell them you would like to confirm they received your 2 applications. when they tell you yes, just ask them for the application status and the refference numbers (don't have them process the apps at this time.)
once you have the reference umbers and you know which one was (probably) already denied, call recon again and start working with them on this particuilar one (by offering to move credit line, etc.).

Called recon and I guess my orig SP visa didnt convert to WMC (did it this past Friday) , bec when I called to check on my "new" SP visa application, CS said it was denied bec I already have a SP Visa. Should I just wait till i get the converted SP WMC in the mail first, so it's official and then I can switch it back to SP Visa?

I just got my SP WMc in the mail and my SP visa is still live.  CS via SM said i cant qualify for 50k on SP WMC bec I already have the SP Visa.  Does that make sense or does that mean Chase linked those two cards as one UR acct?

Did you ask to have the visa converted to a MC? If yes then that's what happened. I'm not sure what you mean by still active, is it still usable or just still showing up online? IME it was showing up online as a mirror account (meaning every transaction done on the new card was reflected on the old as well) however it was not usable.
The point of converting is not to get the 50k on the converted card it's just to allow another visa app to go through.

You can call and ask them whether the visa is still active or not.

HelpMe is right. Its been discussed here before. The reason why a business app will not work with a 3bm is bec the inquiry is made from a different dept.

The annual fee is waived the first year. Leave it as a Sapphire until the fee is due. That way you will get your yearly 7% bonus also and have the added benefits of Sapphire for the year.


Also keep in mind once you downgrade your points can't be transferred out to Airline/Hotel partners.

Annual fee is charged in billing cycle of 12 months after you enroll, regardless of which calendar month it is. 7% annual dividend typically posts in February.

Keeping the card open also means you can negotiate a retention bonus when starting your second year of cardmembership (or earlier even), it also means you have leverage when applying again with Chase, if they give you any issues you can offer to close this card or transfer part of its CL.

thanks, I'm new in the credit card world so i would like to ask something maybe its simple but i don't know :-[ :-[,

if i want to close a credit card (cuz i got the bonus points and i don't want to pay the annual fee ;))  and in the same time i want to apply for another one, is it better if i (like you say) transfer this card to the new one? is it possible? does it pay for my credit?

Apply for your new one. If you don't get approved you can then move over credit and close the old card to get the new one approved.


You can also downgrade many cards to fee free versions and close them in the future when needed.

This question is a broad question and does not really belong in this thread, also a simple search would help you find the answer.

The answer to your question is to apply for a new card and if you get denied than you can try and use the current card and it's credit line as leverage to get this card approved (you ask them to reconsider and offer to close this card in place of the new one). this would be helpful for getting a new card approved, yet as far as your credit is concerned you want to keep your current credit lines as this is part of your credit value, yet canceling a card does not negatively affect your credit for 10 years so if you end up getting a new line it doesn't really make a difference how this one is closed.

You have to transfer them out or to a different ultimate rewards account. Keep in mind if you don't have a sapphire preferred or ink bold you can't transfer points out to airline/hotel programs.

Question,
So I want to switch my Sapphire Preferred Visa for a Sapphire Preferred World Mastercard.
My year with Sapphire will be up next week.
What is the best way to do this?
They told me they can transfer to Preferred World Mastercard once you have the Sapphire Preferred Visa open at least a year.

Is there a way to:
1) Transfer to World MasterCard and get points for a new card?
2) Keep my ultimate rewards points with my account?

Also, a retention bonus was mentioned earlier.  What successful offers have you found for retention in the past?
Looking for suggestions?

You can apply for a Sapphire World Mastercard (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/SapphireWMC/) and get the bonus again.
Title: Re: 50K Sapphire Preferred Bonus!
Post by: mechayamom on May 08, 2012, 12:29:57 PM
I thought it was mentioned that they wouldnt let you have two Preferred Sapphire cards at once.
So can I apply for the Sapphire Preferred World MasterCard while the Sapphire Preferred Visa is still open?

I just got the Freedom and was originally denied because I have too many Chase cards.  Called Recon and had them move some of the credit line from one card to another and got the Freedom that way.

Afraid they will deny the World Mastercard.  How long do you have to wait between applying for cards?
Title: Re: 50K Sapphire Preferred Bonus!
Post by: Dan on May 08, 2012, 12:43:46 PM
I have both open, but even if they tell you no, you can always offer to close the Visa and have them approve the MC and get the points again.
Title: Re: 50K Sapphire Preferred Bonus!
Post by: mechayamom on May 08, 2012, 01:09:36 PM
Will I lose the Ultimate rewards points off the sapphire Visa if I close it to open the World MasterCard.  Or can I tell them to transfer the Ultimate rewards points from the closed card to the new one.

You need to transfer them out first. If you have another UR card (like freedom or ink) you can transfer to that card.

Check your statement (you can view a PDF of it when logged into your account at Chase.com), it should have the amount charged in the original currency, as well as the exchange rate.

After first statement close, unless you completed the $3k spent very close to statement closing date.

Just got hit with the $95 annual fee. They are unwilling to budge (2 calls and SM), spent around 20k YTD. Any ideas?

By saying churn, do you mean apply for a new SP or apply for other Chase cards, possibly moving CL or closing the current SP?

I just applied doing 2BM using link here for SP VISA (Churning now for 3rd time this year). Second one for Marriott (first time). both application got "need further verification 7-10 days answer. this is first time I did 2BM. so as next step, shall I call recon and ask them what? I did 2 application and I need answer for both? or call and ask for each one? I assume, as soon as I give them my SSN# they will automatically know, that I have done 2BM. right?

My last application with Chase was in April 2012 for UA Explorer. I have 2 Existing Chase cards right now. UA Explorer and Sapphire regular (non-preferred) Master card. each with 25K and 30K CL respectively. Shall I ask them to move CL from UA explorer (allowing me opportunity to churn it again) and get it closed right now itself?

call recon - DON'T ask to reconsider, just ask for the "status" of your application. give your social. then ask them to read to you your application number - they will. hang up and call again with your application number only.

This is also not foolproof.  I've called with the application number and they were able to see the other two apps I put in as well.

What do you do in such situation? If they see, I see other applications put by you? Shall you get recon to approve all of it in same call?

Just called App. Status line and asked for rep instead of automated message that "it is under review" asked for reference number for application and he mentioned he doesnt have it. I just have to wait till the process is over. He said, we can track this by your social. whenever you call, just give your social. I had applied on July 3rd.  I have 2 pending applications. Marriott is first time application. SP VISA is 3rd time.

1. Shall I directly call recon with social?
2. HUCA and try to get reference number for each application and then call each time with each reference number?
3. Wait out, to get outcome and then call based on outcome - 99% it is going to be denial due to high credit limit I have with Chase right now. So it has to be done with moving CL or closing existing cards.

Any suggestions?

Iv'e had this and they said you can't have that many new cards at once, I said fine let's do one and we'll worry about the rest. After getting one approved I was again told the others cannot possibly be approved, I said no problem and then HUCA.

I downgraded my sapphire visa to non preffered about a month ago, will I get the signup bonus (40k), if I sign up for a visa? BTW, how do you signup for a MC sapphire?

you can either sign up for the mastercard saphire via DD's link - credit card thread. (didn't work for me - it came up as a visa)
or call up and get them to convert your sapphire preffered visa to mastercard. (worked for me via the number on the back of the sapphire card.)

Is this absolutely necessary, or is closing my SP Visa and waiting 60 days enough to get the bonus again?
Title: Re: How to churn Sapphire Preferred?

do you have to wait the 60 days from when you convert it to mastercard???

If I don't have a sapphire card Yet is it better to get the visa first and then wait 30 days and then change it to MC would I get the bonus that way?
If yes that means that I will have I apply for two cards?
Title: Re: How to churn Sapphire Preferred?
Post by: Red on July 16, 2012, 06:34:09 PM
Why don't you get one, wait until the bonus posts and then apply for the other and have them close the first and transfer the credit line to the new one?
