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.

Not the freshest info, but something. Seems like most suggest waiting until the card shows as the card you PCd to in your online profile, and waiting for statemnt to close.

Thanks. Change in online profile was actually instant. I applied right away and was denied. Hopefully if recon approves it'll be based on today's date.

Hopefully. I'd call in with the sapphire card number and see what card they call it. If they call it a CF or CFU, you should be good. Still just speculation though.

Re. New AF and question of people applying now even if new
increased SUB is offered banking on matching via SM...

A reputable blogger (DOC) wrote:
Keep in mind also that Chase will usually not match to a higher sign up bonus if the annual fee is different (e.g when one offer has the annual fee and the other offer has the annual fee waived Chase will never match as the annual fees are different) so signing up with the lower annual fee and hoping for a bigger sign up bonus will not work.

End of quote.

Any thoughts?

Well here is my DP.

Last year applied for the CSP when the bonus was 50k without AF.
Chase increased the SUB to 60k+ AF first year.
Successfully matched to 60k but didn't pay the AF.

Any thoughts?

Just applied with the $450 annual fee,

Got a message that the decision will be sent by mail, is the annual fee based on applying date or approval date?

Its interesting to note Lyft pink is 15% off unlimited and not capped like other promotions up to $6 or $10 per ride. A long distance ride for example Brooklyn to EWR is $15 off. This can be a significant discount + x10 UR.

If I currently have 50% off promo that’s good through the end of the week, should I wait to activate Pink until the promo is finished?
