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.

Your answers have been very helpful and friendly for newbies, which is a breath of fresh air. Still, why not point him towards the many useful posts on this website, which helped many of us (me included) get started, instead of competing websites? It’s technically a violation of forum rule #6 as well.

Thanks, and to answer your question, no particular reason other than those were the first couple that came up when I did a quick Google search. I’m also not aware of Dan publishing a guide of this exact nature. Closest thing I could find is the link below but this blog post is more geared towards providing guidance on the best combination of Chase UR cards and which card to use where. The question I was responding to was more focused on getting a holistic understanding of the UR ecosystem and how to redeem effectively.

Also available is a 60,000 point offer on the Sapphire Reserve card, but you will be better off applying for this card and converting it to a Reserve card down the line.

Could I downgrade to freedom and then upgrade to reserve? (within the 1st year of preferred)
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

maybe its a difference between new cards, to the post which is about existing cards that were switched from sapphire to freedom and than back to sapphire

Got approved recently for sapphire preferred but only after moving around credit. Want to upgrade freedom back to reserve but now have less than 10k CL and would need to apply for credit increase. Is it likely I will be denied if the only way I was approved for sapphire was by moving credit as opposed to them issuing new credit?

You don't need 10K to upgrade.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Me and many others were told that too....
But you can shift back part of the credit line that you put on the CSP to the one you want to upgrade
