New Chase Sapphire Reserve Card [Pre-release speculation]

Chase Sapphire Reserve [Initial application frenzy]


This card is subject to Chase's 5/24 policy. For information on (and discussion of) the policy, see Applying for Chase Credit Cards, 2017 onward.

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.

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 via 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 for your address.
6. Contrary to what the customer service rep may tell you about the delivery of the card—such as the card will take 1-2 weeks or that expedited shipping is not available—the card is actually expedited and shipped via express shipping, as mentioned in #5. There is no need to ask for expedited shipping.

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 haven't been to, say, Africa, but all around Asia with my metal CSP, and never once had an issue in India, Thailand, Singapore, Japan, Indonesia, China, etc. The bigger issues I've had have nothing to do with the material, and have been related to either the fact there is no PIN (mostly probelematic in UK/EU), and quite a few merchants, primarily in India, occasionally in Indonesia, that just don't accept US-issued cards. Or in India, it hanging online when doing the Verified by Visa/3D-secure thing. So plastic won't help that.

And yes, I imagine they are probably catching on to folks trying to get plastic to avoid an AU fee.

Do people who were approved in the branch all have non-credit card accounts with Chase or have people with only cards (but who exceeded 5/24) been approved in branch? I've read a lot here but I'm not entirely clear n that.

You may want to read this DP I posted in another thread and compare to your own situation to evaluate your chance, as pre-approved is not a sure thing it turns out as there are more wrinkles underneath that hardly anyone knows until this type of DP surfaces.

Try calling. I imagine CSRs are more reasonable in person. Also another reason you can add is about parking machines that just chew up metal cards for being too big.

Are plastic users getting metal cards? I went to to verify my vanilla Sapphire (downgraded my CSP) and I saw 2 cards there on chase.com/verifycard. One was the downgraded Sapphire, the other was my CSR.

However it's been over a week since I've seen that yet I haven't seen anything in the mail. Is that just a placeholder or something?

I would not verify receipt of any card that is NOT physically in my own hand. Wait until your actually receive the card(s) before you verify receipt - VERIFY - key word.

Out of curiosity, I checked the website and saw a replacement card, to be verify, that I have for many years. The current card will be expire in a month. SO it seems that your card is on the way, at least it is in the system already.

You got approved online with 10/24?

My wife is 6/24 so I am waiting. Went in the branch and no preapproval. She has only 1 card - Freedom but had $45k limit on it. Reduced the limit to $30k, still no preapproval a week later. Dont know if I should reduce the limit further or just wait till she drops below 5/24.

Totally bizarre. My wife is exactly 5/24 and around an 800 FICO and got denied. I am in the low 700's with 10/24 and got approved after a call to Chase. Have no idea why but I did a happy dance for about 10 minutes.

Very impressive, maybe you got the right recon agent?

I don't think so. She actually told me that my credit report was not available and that when it became available, they would review it and let me know. When I hung up with her she made no commitment and actually sounded pessimistic. I only found out that I was approved by logging on to Chase and seeing in online.

I called Amex already and downgraded and/or cancelled ALL of my cards. It is going to be Chase only from here on out!

Approved in branch for Reserve last week. At 19/24, with five open personal chase cards and one ink card. Most recent chase personal card opened in May, ink opened in February.

Wink

I got approved for this yesterday and I am awaiting the card. I do however have flights that need to be booked in the next day or so. Is there a way to book using the card even though I have yet to receive the actual metal?
