This thread is the 2019 version of our https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/chase-ultimate-rewards/1710270-chase-retention-bonus-offers-june-2015-present-all-cards.html


Please give us the following data:
Current retention offers (specify the date [mm/dd/yyyy], the card, the offer, how long you had the card and yearly spend)

When you call, you MUST ask if there are any offers on your account. Don't ask for an AF waiver, ask if they can credit your account the $95 (or whatever your AF is) to your account. They cannot remove the AF, but they can credit an amount to offset it. If you cancel your card within 30 days of receiving retention bonus, then Chase may claw back that bonus Note that Chase has shortened the period in which you can close the card and get the fee refunded. It is 30 days for most (or all?) cards.

If you don't get a retention bonus, the card you are holding may have the option of a downgrade. Cards that are downgraded may be upgraded at a later date. Consolidated discussion of that topic is here: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/chase...16-onward.html

5th year in a row ask and thee shall receive

For the 5th year in a row I called about the annual fee on my Ritz Carlton Visa & got some consideration, this year $150 rebate with no prerequisites - Annual fee still $395 so net $245 is very reasonable considering the features and benefits this card offers.

With Chase, do you have to be connected t the retention department by throwing the "C" word around or do you get to where you need from the first CSR rep?

CSP - Got a $60 statement credit on second call. Nothing on the first call.

Does anyone have any data points on the WoH card?

No, I just got the $50 credit statement for Ink Plus by asking the first rep if there were any offers on my account to offset the AF. I've spent about $10,000 on it in the last year, all in the 5x categories.

Also the AF doesn't post until August 1, so I didn't need to wait for the fee to post as some of have said.

just called to cancel/get fee waved for my mileage plus explorer card. I keep it for the elite ward upgrades. I thought they would at least transfer me to retention. The agent just said that retention was busy and she could handle my cancelation right away.

Was kinda surprised! thought they'd try harder to upsell me/downsell me on another product. Oh well, this means I can sign up for another bonus in 18-24 months... haha

if you're up for it, it's good to downgrade to no AF version because certain benefits are kept.

They offered, but said that there werent really any benefits for the no annual fee card. The only one i really care about is the award elite upgrade option. Without that, I rather cancel and reset the clock for another bonus is 18 months

I just got turned down for any retention incentive. Wow, things have changed among the credit card companies. No mileage/min spend, no nothing. I paid last year's AF. Anyway, I felt the rejection as soon as the CSR answered. I think it's a change corporate wide.

Just wonder why you are surprised for no retention offers. Bank profits have not been great and both AmEx and Chase look to cut costs. I expect banks will pull back more on retention. It is a loser's game.
