Chase Sapphire Reserve 100,000 Point Online Signup Bonus Ends Today

I receive compensation for many links on this blog. You don’t have to use these links, but I am grateful to you if you do. American Express, Citibank, Chase, Capital One and other banks are advertising partners of this site. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by my advertising partners. I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).

I do not have a referral link for the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card. Information about the product was neither provided nor reviewed by its issuer.

The Chase Sapphire Reserve Card‘s 100,000 point signup bonus (after $4000 spend within 3 months) will drop down to 50,000 points online tomorrow, but should still be available in-branch at 100,000 points until on or about March 12.

Once that happens, the Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card should have the biggest Chase signup bonus at 80,000 points (after $5000 spend within 3 months). This card’s $95 annual fee, of course, is much lower than the $450 annual fee for the Sapphire Reserve.

Indeed, the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card should have a bigger signup bonus than the Sapphire Reserve because it will also have a 50,000 bonus point offer after $4,000 spend on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening as well as 5000 more points for adding an authorized user card and making a purchase within that time period.

And of course the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card has a $0 annual fee the first year, then $95.

Many readers have difficulty getting approved for them if they’ve signed up for 5 or more new card accounts in the past 24 months, though there are exceptions where some folks do seem to get approved. And some people who are at or over ‘5/24’ may be able to get the card if they’re pre-approved through Chase’s online offers or in-branch.

  1. Snagged one on Monday, I was going to wait until the summer, but they forced my hand. It was delivered on Tuesday via FedEx.

  2. I applied Monday and I was put in pending status. Still no word (I think I may be over the 5/24 rule but wasn’t rejected right away). Any idea if I will still get the 100k?

  3. @Paul – I was initially declined for 5/24 reasons last week as well, but was successfully able to argue that a few of those account openings were only as an Authorized User. I also offered to move a little credit around from my existing Freedom/CSP/Hyatt cards and was approved 5 minutes later. (They were also able to get my CSP downgraded to a Freedom Unlimited card on the same call…eliminating the additional 95.00 AF.)

    Not sure if any of that might be relevant to your situation or not, but at least a data point for all who might find it helpful.
