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.

Can anyone confirm if NJ Transit tickets bought through the app are eligible for the $300 credit?
Can't confirm, but I'd be very surprised if they aren't.

New fee will hit me on 4/1/2020, and I dont think that with the new fee, this card is worth for me. I currently have about 160,000 UR points.

I signed up for Reserve in March 18, Sapphire Preferred (March 18), and Ink Preferred in May 18. I closed Sapphire Preferred and Ink Preferred in April 19. I haven't signed for any other card since 2018.

Is there any other card that I can sign up, get some sign-on bonus URs (if possible) and transfer my existing UR to this new card? I understand I will lose out on the better exchange rate if I dont have the Reserve card, but I feel $250 fee (after taking out $300 for travel credit) is too much for what I get out of the card. 

Thanks for your help and guidance.

You can open a Freedom or Freedom Unlimited, but your UR will have much less value, and will not transfer to airlines, unless you open a card that allows it. You can upgrade the Freedom or Freedom Unlimited to a Sapphire preferred or reserve, but you'd have to wait a year from when you open the card.

Thanks for the replies. So, there is no card that will transfer to the airlines unless I have a specific card that allows it?

And why cant I sign up for Sapphire Preferred and get bonus points? It will be 2 years in March when I last opened the card, but less than a year of account closure.

You need to wait 48 months from when your last bonus posted, to get another sapphire. The ink is still 24 months I believe, so maybe open a freedom/FU or one of the free inks, and then open an Ink Preferred once you're eligible again.

Question about PC CSR--

Wife PC from CSP (8.2018 SUB) November 2018  partial refund -  but the AF for CSR didn't post till July 2019 - Travel credits posted December 2018/2019.   DW refereed me CSP 10.2018 before PC. I'm thinking of PC to CSR.

JPMC mailed about AF increase and that need to reply by cancel by March or May.

If she PC her card to CF - will they clawback travel credits or Dash credits or would they prorate the AF refund?   Or should I wait till AF post then PC.

TIA

If someone booked tickets with reserve but then cancelled their card and now have a trip delay after the card is cancelled, can they get the travel reimbursement from the reserve being that it was booked on it?

I think you would in general with cards besides Amex. Ask them.

Yes I called them and they said that they would cover even if the card is no longer active
