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.

It seems to be taking longer than I've experienced with my old CSP and I'm just wondering if this is standard and if anyone else has encountered similar issues?
Received credit for rite aid and Walmart. Took about 2 days. I was only able to see the credit using the circle graph that shows the percentage of points earned in different catagories. I haven't seen itemized purchases through the shopping portal like I do on other cards. So you may have received it but not realized it yet.

Thanks for letting me know; that's exactly what happened!

It used to just show up below transactions on my CSP when I'd expand the details. I guess I'll just need to click on the UR portal and track my activity over there from now on. Thanks for saving me a phone call! I wouldn't have thought to look there otherwise.

BTW, I just inquired about the metal cards (as mentioned, one of my AUs received plastic) and was told they ran out of stock and just received their order on the 19th, so they should be going out in a couple of business days for those who haven't gotten them.

Can someone confirm: Can I move my UR points from my CSP to my CSR? I looked online, and only see the option to move to airline and hotel partners.

Is it possible to convert the Chase Sapphire Preferred to Reserved while benefiting the 100K points offer? I have almost 50K credit limit with Sapphire Preferred and I do not want to lose that...

You can always transfer your credit line after the fact.

No if you do a product change no bonus.
You can apply and then transfer the CL.

I don't think running out of metal cards was intentional, but it most definitely was NOT a bad move. If it was intentional, then it was quite brilliant on their part and a first for a credit card company.

At no point has running out of metal cards been anything other than a huge publicity bonus for Chase. As mentioned previously, "running out" of things has always increased fervor for that item as in the case of the iPhone each and every year or the toy of the year during Christmas (ie Cabbage Pathc Dolls, Tickle Me Elmo, etc etc). It's peer pressure/mob mentality at it's finest for a marketing exec. Once people know something is so popular it is RUNNING OUT, they rush to get it as well because they don't want to miss out. This stampede has just been more civilized since no one has been trampled to death at Chase branches.

As for getting cheap plastic... Unfortunately, I think most of us here have forgotten that we already know that dissappointed feeling... it's called the Citi Prestige... For all the nice packaging, picking up the card was a major let down. Not only plastic but extremely flimsy plastic. My work ID badge is more substantial... Alas I do love 4th night free and the benefits are still good so I'm keeping it for now and hoping they up their game before my renewal is up.

At least in the case of Chase, the plastic card is temporary!

Chase Sapphire Reserve: How many UR points from your first month's statement?

I still have 9 days to go, but should have enough for a round trip in Global First on UA.

How about you?

Did you 100,000 bonus points post already? I'm on my first statement still and have around 13,000 points to post, almost all from travel and dining.

I had enough to redeem a statement credit to buy a Starbucks. Maybe could have afforded a Venti size if it coded as travel

But in all seriousness I had a super short usable 1st statement month because it took so long to get the card.
