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.

Seems to have become a YMMV situation, instead of a sure thing...

The latest is close the card, (or downgrade) and when AF goes negative you can re-open.

How long is that supposed to take? You have a pretty short window to reopen a closed card

some have been able to have the fee waived when credit limit is under 1500$... what’s ur cl?
I think it's 10k which is the minimum to be able to have a reserve. I had to transfer over credit from another card when I upgraded it to reserve. When you say that people have gotten the fee waived, was it just automatically waived or had to call up?

10k needed to open originally, not needed to keep card open.

True but these days reps will tell you they can’t lower it as it’s a Visa infinite blah blah until you HUCA enough

OK good to know, however, my question is really the opposite. I have not been hit with the fee yet since upgrading in mid November and I was wondering if I should expect it or if it is some type of glitch that they forgot to charge me.

Wait...you told chase in SM that you weren’t charged an annual fee? (sorry couldn’t tell if you were sarcastic here)

the message I sent was (paraphrasing)" Hi, can I please move $xxx(cheshboned to take out enough that it winds up with 1500$ only) from this card to 'x' card I think I will need the credit over there more than with this card...
they said sure.
than a few days later I got the AF refunded.

ETA: I cannot promise if this works anymore I have no clue. But it cant hurt to try. also, was told this only works for the first year of the card but that could also not be true...
