This card is subject to Chase's 5/24 policy. To read a summary of the policy click HERE. To discuss it click HERE.

You can override 5/24 by having an in-branch pre-approval (only! online prequalification does NOT override 5/24), 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):

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. [Verified in Post #2635] Also verified by Chase

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. Expedited shipping is no longer being approved). Some are getting plastic cards with no box. Chase advises metal cards will follow later in these cases.

How to determine your account number, expiration date, and shipping date before receiving the card:
1. Send a secure message (SM) from the account. A common SM would be to ask about the sign-up bonus and last day to complete the spend requirement (which appears to be approximately 3.5 months from the date of approval).
2. Check the Sent Messages folder, and the full account number will be listed in the header of the message that you just sent. The number starts with 414720....
3. The expiration date is three years from the month of approval. So, if you were approved on August 31, 2016, your expiration date will be August 2019.
4. CVV2 number is not available, so if a merchant requires it for payment, you must wait for the physical card.
5. According to many reports, the card is not activated until it is shipped, which happens to be UPS Next Day Air Saver (if shipped on Friday, you will not receive the card until Monday or the next business day). To find out when it is shipped, go to My UPS and sign up for a free account. You'll be notified when a shipment is destined to your address.

Priority Pass Select
Click HERE to read the separate thread discussing this benefit.
As soon as the account shows up online:
1. Click on Go To Ultimate Rewards.
2. Scroll down to the very bottom left and click on "Card Benefits"
3. Activate Membership to request card.
4. Card will take 1-2 weeks and can't be expedited, but members have reported success in charging the lounge access to the card and requesting a refund from Customer Service.
5. PP cards will be issued for the account holder and any AU(s)
6. According to Chase, CSR's PP membership includes guest access.

Duplicate Card
1. If you receive the plastic card, wait for the metal card to arrive automatically.
2. If you receive the metal card, send SM or call to request plastic card (for use with overseas merchants that require a card imprint, because you hate metal cards, whatever).
3. DO NOT request a replacement card (especially under any pretense that the card was lost or misplaced).
4. Both cards will have the same number, expiration and CVV. Both cards will work.
5. It appears that all CSR cards are sent overnight once produced, including the plastic 'replacement' cards. No need to request expedited shipping.

How to get bonus points on the first statement:
Act very quickly; you may have less than a week. It depends on the timing of your first statement and when you receive the card. 4K in spending has to clear (not pending) about a week before the statement cuts in order to get the bonus points on that statement. Under "account details" you can see your first payment due date. Your closing date is usually three calendar days after your due date. For instance, if your very first bill is due October 20 that statement would close on September 23, and spending would have to clear by approximately September 16 in order to get the bonus points.

I applied in person at a branch this morning. I was pre-approved for the card (banker told me that without asking), but my application still went to pending. The banker, and the person I just spoke to on the recon line, told me that it probably has to do with address verification (which I don't fully understand; I am a current Chase banking and credit customer and they have my current address on all my accounts). They said I would get a letter in the mail, and the recon person said he was not able to access the application to give me any more information. I'm thinking I may try to call back again this afternoon.

I am at 3/24, 755 credit score, $53,000 aggregate credit line from Chase right now (across 3 cards, only 2 of which I use), $98,000 total credit line including Amex and Citi, and $310k income. Not sure why I wouldn't have been auto-approved given the pre-approval, sub-5/24, and plenty of income to cover additional credit.

The materials they give you in-branch have the 100,000 bonus plastered all over them (I am holding those materials in my hand right now). It is legit, don't worry.

Same here. I don't get why Chase doesn't update across all platforms. Even with the Ritz card from the website I still see the old Visa Signature version.

Ha, going to be interesting to watch the points bloggers try to push this one if that's true.

Didn't stop them from pushing the CSP.

i doubt most of their readers even know what 5/24 is, given the flood of interest and questions about it on reddit yesterday

Just applied online. Got the 7-10 pending message...not a good sign. I am way over 5/24 but I did call to lower my credit limit on several Chase cards so that I don't need to move the credit at the end, but I guess it doesn't matter.

EDIT: called the reconsideration line just now and was told application declined due to too many account opened. 5/24 definitely in place.
