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.

Was denied for CSR 5/24. Currently have freedom and CSP.
1. Does it pay to upgrade without signup bonus?
2. If yes, which one should i upgrade?
3. Should i upgrade CSP to CSR and change Freedom to Freedom unlimited?

Don't upgrade unless there's something you really need from the CSR.

True, as I said, if you need it than do it.

Upgrade now, and downgrade after $600. Probably best to do it right after December 1, and downgrade before December 31.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Do you need to go in branch to check pre-approved status?

Can someone PM me some ideas on a good $300 travel coded purchase that can be resold?
I found out that UAL no longer sells Gift Certificates...
What is there?  Thx!

Can you upgrade a freedom card to the reserve, eventhough I currently have one open ?
