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.

Has anyone tried transferring points from a non household member so points can be valued more ? I have a friend with a  different address who wants to transfer the points to me so I can redeem it for a higher value but not sure if it works or anyone has tried it

Are student loans counted as income for chase?
Hard to believe debt can be considered income.

Works, but they might empty your account for going against their t&c

If I paid for my daughters sleep away camp with the CSR will she be covered out of state for medical emergencies or do I need to purchase a travelers medical policy?

Annual fee went down to $450 for renewals in July. But new applications still at $550?

Hi everyone, first post, sorry for the noob question. I currently have a Sapphire Preferred that I want to upgrade to a Sapphire Reserve. Since I'm going to be doing this anyway, I've been looking for a way to get the Reserve's 50,000 point signup bonus. I understand that when you upgrade directly from the Preferred to the Reserve you're not eligible for the bonus. I know that I can cancel my Preferred and then sign up for Reserve but by doing so I'd forfeit all of my current Ultimate Rewards points.

My question is this. Is it a viable workaround to downgrade my Sapphire Preferred to a Freedom Unlimited, open a new Sapphire Reserve, and then transfer my current points from the Freedom Unlimited to the Sapphire Reserve? Will this successfully meet my goals of keeping all of my existing points intact, and getting me the 50,000 point Reserve signup bonus?

Also, because I think you can only get a new card bonus once every 24 months, I got my Preferred card in June, 2018 and hit the sign-up bonus in August, 2018, so it's been more than 24 months since the last time I opened a card, but not quite 24 months since I last qualified for a card-opening bonus.

welcome to the forums. Firstly that is precisely the method everyone does. Downgrade to a free card and then transfer the points from that card to a reserve. The issue for you is that the sign up bonus on sapphire cards is once in 48 months and not 24 months. :(

Darn, I just checked and it looks like that changed a few months after I got my card. I knew back when I signed up it was 24 months. Thanks for the quick and helpful response. Guess I'll just do a straight upgrade.

Medical emergency will cover for any medical expense up to $2,500 with a $50n deductible. Chase terms state that you need to be 100 miles or more from home. Plus trip must include travel on a common carrier. The options of common carrier are plane, boat or “bus”. So i think the answer to your question will depend if your daughter when to camp with a bus :)
