Another datapoint for issue with the referral process. I referred my fiancee and she was approved in late April and then used the card in early May. I send Chase a dm in early June and they responded it takes 6-8 weeks. i call in early july at the 8th week and they said wait another week. I call on 9th week and they said oh okay lets open an escalation case. They response from the escalation case was please wait 6-8 weeks from first use... smh.

Received 10k UR bonus. Not sure who signed up and met the spend. Is there a way to determine which friend/family signed up? When I logon to the Refer A Friend site and select See a list of friends invited by email, it says I haven't invited anyone but I know I have.

It specifically States on the referral page that due to privacy concerns Chase can't notify you of who has applied or who has been approved. Kind of makes it hard to determine if and when you will get any bonus or when the 6 to 8 weeks clock starts.

Ok, I found out who signed up via my referral. Friend just signed up and 1st statement has not closed yet. I received referral bonus ~3 wks after card approval. Also, I thought min spend to hit UR bonus was required for referral bonus but not the case.

So now I'm confused. I thought the referred friend needed to hit min spend and get their bonus points before you got the 10k bonus. It sounds like some people here are getting the 10k once the friend is approved though. I haven't seen anything posted to my account at any point and I know at least one person met their minimum spend already.

Ugh.

To complicate things further, my CSP anniversary is coming up on 1/3/17 and I want to downgrade to Freedom avoid the CSP annual fee. I don't want the downgrade to mess up my 10k bonus(es) though.

Has anyone here ever downgraded their CSP and still received referral bonuses after the fact?

Yeah, so I'm in the same boat. Want to apply via spouse referral link but that AF is due in two weeks. I was planning to downgrade that csp but if referral points are pending then I guess I'm stuck. Any DP on this? Can one get referral points made from a CSP that has since been downgraded to Freedom Unlimited?

Alternatively, what's the policy on AF refunds? Prorated possible?

Last time we did a referral, the 10k took 2.5 months to post. Is that still an accurate estimate?

Any recent DPs on this? I referred my wife for Ink Preferred and she was just approved (we have separate legit businesses) after they sent me an email asking if I wanted to refer someone (I have old Ink Bold which changed to Ink Plus I think)... just wondering how timing has worked recently...

Is it possible to retroactively add a referral link to an application that was already approved? I totally forgot I could apply a referral to my friend's application for a Chase Ink Preferred, but that just got approved yesterday.

For the past week, I keep getting system unavailable even after clearing cache and using multiple browsers for my Chase Sapphire Reserve.

Regular referral site wont work -- you have to use specific link: https://www.chase.com/referafriend/chasesapphirereserve

Chase Referral Bonus Annual Cap Question

I am wondering that how Chase calculates annual cap of referral bonus for credit card referral.

For example you can earn 20,000 points for each approved Chase Ink Business Preferred referral up to 100,000 point per calendar year -- If someone I referred got the card approved on 12/25/2017 and my referral bonus is awarded on 1/25/2018, does this 20,000 points count towards 100,000 annual cap of 2017 or 2018?

You technically haven't earned anything until they receive the card and make their first purchase. After this happens, it will take about 5-7 days until you see them show up as pending. After that happens, you will receive them when your statement ends. Anything earned after your December statement ends will count for the following year. So the short answer is 2018.

Thank you for answering.

So Chase referral uses statement date (that grants the points to account) as the day that you earn referral bonus, unlike Amex that uses card approval date.

If I only have the Chase Sapphire Reserve can I refer someone to the Sapphire Preferred and be eligible for the bonus? Thanks
