New Chase Sapphire Reserve Card [Pre-release speculation]

Discussion continues HERE.

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.)

Good points from you and "nall",,, this is the first time I ever looked at that site. Hopefully we will know the answer in a few hours.

Travel benefits are updated at https://www.chase.com/card-benefits/...reserve/travel - looks like the AU gets a priority pass membership as the main benefit

Like paying/auto loading your city transit card online?

Thanks
YMMV, but I get the travel bonus on CSP for loading my SmarTrip card (DC).

TPG: You also get a $300 annual travel credit, which — unlike the similar credits offered with cards like Citi Prestige, American Express Platinum and the refreshed Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit Card — can be applied to any expenses that are coded as travel, including hotels, airfare, taxis, trains and many other charges (which we’ll detail in a future post).

reddit says website application opens August 22, no phone application, some branch will accept it today (if you can find one open).

This would make the net fee ($450 - $300 + $75) = $225 to extended the Priority Pass benefit to someone else. Looks like I'm going to keep the Prestige despite loss of Admiral's Club access because the net fee is $200 ($450 - $250). The CSP vs CSR debate is tough because I'm not sure I can make up the annual fee difference with the extra point for dining and travel. I will still apply for the CSR if I can get the 100K bonus and maybe downgrade after the first year.

It also says 8:00, 10:30, and some indeterminate time today though.

I heard it was open for a few minutes and they ran out of plastic. Consequently, no more accounts will be opened.

Total bummer on the lack of guest access with the Priority Pass membership. That was the one thing that would make me drop my Citi Prestige card. Me + two guests via Prestige is super useful when traveling with colleagues.

The banker says he should have info on CPC signup bonuses on Saturday but I got too busy to call. I'm debating if I should apply if the link goes live on Sunday, or wait to apply in a branch on Monday.
Please let us know what you find out. I'm in the same situation

Agreed. Like many, I only use the Priority Pass membership when flying international, and I never fly international solo. I always travel with at least one person, so the absence of free guest access makes the membership virtually useless to me.

A few isolated reports on Reddit of in-branch apps being live. Too bad I'm in SDF and none are open today.
