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.

You have until 30 days (a month?) after they bill you to have the charge cancelled.  Otherwise you get nothing back.
To clarify, "billing" means statement closing date that shows the fee (not when the fee posts on the 1st of the month).

For some reason I am having a hard time keeping this straight

Appreciate if I could get help with four question

1.My csr due date is the 25th. I opened my card last December and received the tc in both December and January. I think I can receive it again in December but  think the travel charge would have to be made after 12/28. Can anybody confirm if I am understanding correctly

2. My husband has a csr from last January so he has only received one tc in January. His due date is the 24 th so I think he would have to charge after dec 27?

3. Is there a way to confirm what date we will have to pay the renewal fee?

4. We will be traveling end of December so would like to change my due if entitled to the tc in question 1 and 2. Do you know how far in advance I would have to request to change the due date to 18th? Or maybe it is already too late

Thank you!

All of my spending is dining/travel.  I will likely not be eligible for CSR for a while due to 5/24.  Any reason not to just upgrade my CSP to CSR, so I can take advantage of the 3x points on dining/travel, as well as the 1.5 portal redemption (living in Israel, that's often helpful with non-points hotels)?

You just need to calculate when you will be able to get it, with how many extra points you will make by upgrading. If you spend $10 a year, obviously you should wait. If you spend $200000 a year, obviously you wouldn't.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

Upgrading to CSR doesn't give you a signup bonus.  So when you're eligible for a new chase card, if the bonus is right, (downgrade the card,) apply for the CSR.  You'll be eligible for the bonus, having never received it.

I spend between $10 and $200,000.

On the Sapphire Reserve card I got charged the annual fee and for 2 Au's   55 days ago. If I downgrade it now will I get refunded for everything or at least prorated? Or not get any refund?

But call. ask. Then decide if you're closing / downgrading or not.
I think if you downgrade, you'll get a pro-rated refund.
