This card is under 5/24. You can override 5/24 by having an in-branch (only! online prequalification does NOT override 5/24) pre-approval, or by already being Chase Private Client (as in you see the "Chase Private Client" text on the login screen of the Chase mobile app.)

Landing page with bonus offer (100,000 UR after spending $4,000 in 90 days) is now live:

https://creditcards.chase.com/credit...04&IS2F=Y71UH0

Application page: https://applynow.chase.com/FlexAppWe...L3P&PROMO=DF01

100,000 UR points is worth $1,000 as statement credit, $1,500 when used for travel through the Chase portal, or potentially more if transferred to a partner.

Card features are here:https://www.chase.com/card-benefits/...reserve/travel. The card's Priority Pass includes unlimited guests.

The purchases made that you receive the $300 travel credit (or $85/$100 trusted traveler program credits) for do count towards the minimum spend, but the annual fee does not.

The card is made of the same material as the CSP, and is being shipped UPS Next Day Air Saver to everyone after production (currently (8/26) appears to have about a 3-day delay after approval before shipping.)

I think Chase is too invested in hotel partner cards to undermine it with a benefit which undercuts the prices available to Hyatt, IHG, Marriott/Ritz cardholders. (I also think Chase's relationship with three direct competitors is unsustainable, and they they will lose one, but that's another thread.)
I agree on undermining existing relationships as well as four relationships not sustainable (including Fairmont), doesn't Amex Plat give you SPG Gold status with Platinum but not with Amex SPG card?

it may seem simple, but thats where the market is going.....

I have had Prestige for 2+ years and have never used the 4th night free for three reasons: I try and max out FHR as much as possible, use hotel points for free stays and whenever I can get the 5th night free, and third is user Rocketmile or other sites for getting miles and getting equal to fourth night free. GE -- I have three cards that offer it.

This card would need to give something unique and possible also highly sought after. Like status miles with United, or lounge access to United and BA besides Priority access, and or combine the rewards of Freedom, Freedom Unlimited and Sapphire for rewards. So, unlimited 1.5x UR + 5x every quarter on $1,500 spending and 3x rewards on travel. That would be a killer. They could also add top status with all four hotels that they partner if you spend $100K in a year.

What examples are there of annual bonuses equal to, or greater than, the annual fee?

Chase IHG and Chase Hyatt spring to mind.

Sorry for not being clear. I meant in terms of points.

I think this new card might resemble the current Prestige card by providing:

1)United Club access - Restricted to only when flying United

2) 3X on travel, 2X on dining, 1X everything else

3)Global Entry credit

4)Fine Hotels and Resorts

5)Annual Airline Credit (Not sure how much)

I'm not sure if it will provide the complimentary 4th night.

American Express Platinum gives both Hilton and Starwood Gold status. The SPG credit card gives Gold with a $30,000 annual spend requirement, and also awards stays/nights toward elite status.

how likely would this card offer any Star Alliance lounge access? Probably not, right?

So those of us who fly on UA+partners still need to keep United Club if we want lounge access abroad.

FHR is an Amex program. Visa has something similar that is offered to all their Signature cardholders as well as Infinity cardholders but is nowhere nearly as good.

Chase also has a luxury hotel program very similar to FHR.

My guess is not likely. It would probably follow the UA Club card access rules, IMO.

Southwest Premier credit card for one. $99 annual fee and nets you 6000 points every year.

I just did a quick search and a $98 ticket is 5618 points.

Take out the $5.60 TSA fee and you end up with $92.40 for 5618 points.
