FlyerTalk Forums Thread Wiki: Sapphire Preferred : 40K + 5K, $3k spend, AF waived 1st yr.
Please read: this is a community-maintained wiki post containing the most important information from this thread.
 
Last edit by: beltway
Note: There is a promotion beginning in July 2014 for existing cardholders to refer new applicants. Referrals are NOT allowed in this thread. Instead, see: Credit card referral offers (post only in this thread, read Wikipost first)

To review previous Sapphire Preferred thread, click HERE.

Q. What are the best current offers?

Offer for 40K points for $3K spend over 3 months; AF waived first year, with an extra 5K for adding additional cardholder. (Landing page; application)

An alternative landing page also offers of 40K points for $3K spend over 3 months & AF waived first year, with an extra 5K for adding an additional cardholder. (Application page.)

For both of these offers, be sure to check the pricing details before applying. Normally, the annual fee for the CSP for year 2 and later is $95; however, in mid-2014 and then again more recently, Chase began randomly changing the pricing for some visits to the pages above, with AF as high as $150. If you get a page with that higher pricing, try reloading the page.

Q. I just met the spend requirement. When will I receive my signup bonus points?

A. In most cases, your bonus will be credited after the close of the monthly billing cycle in which you meet the spend requirement. (Chase never posts signup bonuses mid-cycle.)

However, owing to a quirk in Chase's system, bonuses associated with charges incurred in the last ~7 days of a billing period may not post until the end of the following billing period. This is true even if the charges appear on your current statement and generate the standard number of points per dollar spent.

Thus, if you meet your bonus spend threshold late in your billing cycle, you may not receive the corresponding signup bonus until the following month. Calling Chase to complain will not change this, so be patient and enjoy your points when they finally appear.

Q. Can I apply for this card and earn the bonus after doing so previously?

A. See the wiki and related discussion in Applying for Chase Credit Cards [Consolidated]

Q. What's the value of a UR point? What are the best redemption options?

A. Because these questions are not specific to the Sapphire Preferred card, see discussion in the following separate threads:
Q. What are the benefits of this card other than UR points?

A. See the discussion in Chase Sapphire Preferred Benefits Thread, especially the source documents referenced in the wiki.

This morning I stumbled upon a link that was a 50,000 bonus after $3,000 in spend but had a $125 annual fee (and it had a picture of the new chip and signature card), but when I closed it out and reopened later, it was back to the 40,000. Not sure what happened. Thought maybe it was a cache thing but it had the picture of the new card so I don't think so...

Prety sure it's not a referral, correct me if I'm wrong.

There is actually an additional 5000 points for adding an authorized user. So that is a 55,000 point offer. Thanks for posting!

Thanks for the link!

It may be a coincidence, but divinebaboon posted this about an hour and a half before you did in the Sapphire Preferred thread. If this happens to be divinebaboon's link, it would be nice to give a shot out in post #1. It looks like divinebaboon did some awesome work to track that link down.

Thanks!

The 5k authorized user bonus is also valid for the $95/year offer.

On net you're looking at a bonus of 10,000 points once for an extra $30/year every year -- a losing proposition in the long term.

I actually came across it in this thread on Fatwallet. Which is why it says HT: Fatwallet in my post.

If this has been mentioned elsewhere, then Please (mods) merge it.

I just wanted to share the link.

Most people don't hold on to the card each year. I wouldn't. I'd rather hold on to the Ink Bold which would also allow me to transfer my points out.

As for the additional 5k, it must be a new thing. When I got my CSP, there was no such additional bonus!

Kind of strange they have the increased fee. I wonder if they'll be increasing it on all new cards, in time.

A post by clarkkentorkalel at the bottom of the thread on Fat Wallet as I am reading it has an SM from Chase saying the offer is only good for applicants who apply TODAY!
