Chase Sapphire Reserve BENEFITS master thread

5/24 applies to this card
Minimum $10K of CL is needed, so if you can't get 10K on an instant, there's another great reason to get declined

There are multiple instances reported on this very thread of someone who was way over 5/24 and did not have PC and who got approval after recon.


The information below no longer applies for 2016/2017 but should still be useful for 2017/2018

Can you still get a 2016 travel credit if you apply now for a Sapphire Reserve card?

People have been reporting various due dates in January. If you get a due date between the 6th to the 25th then your bill will close between December 9th-28th and you will have time to spend the $300 in 2016 travel credit.

It is definitely still possible to get those due dates, but there’s no guarantee. If you do apply then be sure to call reconsideration to see if you can get approved today.
You may also be able to change your payment due date to generate a December statement if your due date is earlier than January 6 or later than January 25th. Just call to have you due date changed to January 25th to have your statement close on December 28th.

From here. Hopefully this will stop the constant questions.

So I'm actually on the phone right now.  She said that it is showing declined because of too many cards.  I'm exactly 5/24 with 3 chase cards and 2 AMEX showing, they already did not factor in the the AU accounts.  She told for this reason and since it was processed as already declined this morning (maybe if I would have called right away last night I would have been ok) there is no way to reconsider it.  She did give me the date that I opened the first of these accounts and when that one should drop off and I should reply.  Not the answer I wanted but at least she was very clear.
I would huca if I were you, it's worth a shot.

Did she give a date to the exact day, (like Nov 13) or just a general month?

I have been an AU on chase cards for about 2or 3years.
-have opened a secure credit card for BOA for 1 year now
-paying off a car finance and have taken out some student loans all of which have given me a solid credit score
-have a checking account with chase.
-In the past i was preapproved for the CSP

With all this being said, what are my chances to get approved for the CSR, As my first real card.

Also, I wouldn't pull a 2BM unless  declined for the CSR because I don't want to waste a pull, yet I don't want to ruin chances by doing a 2BM straight out [i.e ritz]

Ok, you're right although has anyone who is not CPC, was showing outright declined in the computer for 5/24, actually had success?  It seems like the people that had success, caught it when it was still pending.  :-\

Did she give a date to the exact day, (like Nov 13) or just a general month?

She told me the month.

Any tips for what to say to the CPC banker when trying to get CPC without $250K?

Its not what you say, its what you hand them $$. Lol
 But after following this thread for a while seems like your best shot is to get on a joint account with a CPC or have a friend who is a CPC banker.

Yet, I still haven't seen a report of a dollar amount that someone got approved for. Are people doing it with 200K? Pulling it off with just 50K?

People have pulled it off with $1,000.
It's all about your relationship with the banker. Or promises of future account funding.

They offered to move me to CPC when I had $80k and the "potential" to bring in more funds in the future.

So far I haven't pulled it off with decent $$ there now plus promise of much more significant funds coming in soon (which happens to be true..) Said we should meet again when additional funds are in that account :(

Perfect, thanks! Will see how it goes tonight. And if it goes well, will see if he can recon my existing app or if I'll have to submit a new one.
