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 someone help me figure this out.

Got AF Sept 5th
Received SUB Oct5 2016

Move my points over to the the Ink so I dont have to spend it (not sure if I need to do this)
Downgrade Reserve to Freedom (get AF refunded) prior to Oct4
On Oct 6th apply for sapphire- Spend the requirement, receive 80K SUB
Upgrade to Reserve- move points back there.........
Where can I find the date that the SUB posted? Is it just the closing date of the statement it's listed on?

I would assume so being that you only get the points when the statement closes.

I have a similar situation.  Do I need to move points to the Ink?  I don't have one but my spouse does.  Which Freedom is best to downgrade to? I already  have a Freedom.

Unless things have changed, you should not have to move them as they will be kept alive (at a lower value) with a freedom, and the value will then increase when moved back to a sapphire card. The only issue I'm seeing here, is upgrading the Sapphire Preferred to the reserve right away. I believe there is a 1 year waiting period for that upgrade.

Thanks.  So when I upgrade I would have to pay $550?  Also which Freedom is better to downgrade to?

What do you have already? The bonuses are good now. So, you might want to sign up for a new one 1st, if you don't have it already. If you already have them all, the category ones are better, because you double the limit.

Covid has kept me out of the loop, so I'm a bit rusty. :(  Thanks for the correction.

So if I already have Chase cards then I can upgrade right away even though this will be a new card?

I have 2 regular Freedoms (the ones with categories) I don't have any freedom unlimited, but I still want to downgrade this CSR so I don't think I want to sign up for a new Freedom, especially since I'm planning on getting the CSP once I downgrade.
