Moderator caution: Referral offers -or- links are NOT permitted in any thread in the Chase forum. Instead, see: Credit card referral offers (post only in this thread, read Wikipost first Please do not post ANY application links in the Wikipost or thread, even if you think they are not referral links. If you think there is an extraordinary circumstance where the link is difficult to find elsewhere, consult with a moderator before posting.

What is the best current offer?
A. Beginning April 14, 2022, the public offer has been increased to 80,000 Bonus Points After You Spend $4,000 On Purchases In The First 3 Months From Account Opening. Annual fee [$95] is not waived. This offer is now publicly available. Based on some datapoints, it may be possible to get this offer at your local Chase branch with a one year waiver of the annual fee.


For any CSP offer, 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. Can I apply for this card and earn the bonus after doing so previously?

A. This card is subject to the Chase 5/24 policy. For details, see the wiki and related discussion in Applying for Chase Credit Cards, 2017 onward.

As of August 2018, all Chase Sapphire cards are subject to an additional restriction:
The product is not available to either (i) current cardmembers of any Sapphire credit card, or (ii) previous cardmembers of any Sapphire credit card who received a new cardmember bonus within the last 48 months.
See Sapphire (CSR & CSP) 48 months between bonuses, August 2018 for details and ongoing discussion.

Q. I'm an authorized user for a card issued to my spouse/parent. Does that prevent me from signing up for the same card and earning a bonus?

A. No, being an authorized user does not prevent you from obtaining your own card / bonus.


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. 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?

Added an authorized user last month and messaged Chase today but they denied, saying the offer is only for accounts opened on or after today (11/18).

Figures... I just signed up for 2 Chase cards yesterday. Tried anyway but was declined. Recon said no go (2 card limit in 30 days). Can't say I'm surprised.

Anyone have any thoughts on if we can get the 5k referral bonus with the 50k+5k for $125 offer?

If the annual fee was different, it should be considered as different card, isnít it?
I had Sapphire preferred from June 2011 till Sep 2013. I can't remember how much the annual fees I had paid. Just guessing $95..
If they are considered as same cards, no signing bonus for me but...
Any thought would be appreciated.

Just signed up for the 40k/$95AF CSP last month. Message from Chase today said they would not match the new offer.

Bummer, but at least I've got the $95 annual fee.

Is this the best offer Chase ever gave out for Sapphire?

IIRC, there was a 100k and 75k signup for the Sapphire a long time ago.

I think Chase has priced Sapphire Preferred too low versus American Express Premier Rewards Gold and Citi Premier. I expect $125 will become the annual fee for all Sapphire Preferred accounts, subject to regulations is the C.A.R.D. which may prevent raising the fee on the first renewal anniversary.

Of course they can. Our Chase BA VISA was originally $75 per year, now it is $95.

+1. I have a CSP MC that hits the one year mark in Mar14. My plan was to downgrade to Freedom and then apply for CSP Visa. It would be nice if this offer is around. Of course with the Freedom also upping its bonus maybe I should apply for that now. And then just cancel the CSP MC in Mar14. Or cancel the CSP MC (and lose the 7% bonus) now and roll the dice on a CSP Visa now. Decisions......

Also, did anyone notice how the blogs quickly dropped the 50k offer?

Actually, your CSP MC will never make it to the one year mark. All Chase MCs are being converted to Visa according to a SM from Chase I got this morning. Here is my original post.

Thanks, I did see those posts. One refers to "the end of next year" which I took to mean the end of 2014. Does your communication indicate the end of 2013, only 6 weeks away? FWIW I also have an Ink MC and my wife a Freedom MC, and no notice on any.
