Please read this Wiki before you post any questions. It is very likely your question is already answered.


Useful links and some Data Points:FAQ

Q. What is the Sapphire Customer Care #
A. 800-945-2000.

Q. I got pending approval message after submitting application. What should I do ?
Immediately call Reconsideration line: 888-270-2127 or 888-245-0625 (this one didnt have any wait when someone called in). There is no reason to wait.

If you already have a large amount of credit with Chase, you may need to re-allocate it between accounts (that is, move some of the credit line to the CSR) so that the total fits Chase's underwriting.

Q. What is the Math breakdown if I don't plan to use it long term but cancel after 1st year ?
Math Breakdown for the Card if you plan on cancelling after first year: $1500 (UR credits redeemed directly via chase travel portal) + $600 in travel credit ($300 for each calendar year) - $450 in annual fee = $1650 worth of travel money. Not to mention if you have UR bonuses accumulated they can all be now redeemed at 1.5X the value through the UR portal.

Note that this assumes you are able to make price-competitive purchases through the UR portal - that is, that it will have the lowest price.

There is also a Pre Check / Global Entry benefit worth $85-100 if you that is something you would use.

The card will carry a $450 annual fee ($75 for authorized users), which applies to your first statement and must spend $4,000 in the first three months of opening the account to get the mega-sign-on bonus. The $450 annual membership fee DOES NOT count towards to $4K requirement

Q. What types of merchants are in the 'travel' category?
A. Merchants in the travel category include airlines, hotels, motels, timeshares, campgrounds, car rental agencies, cruise lines, travel agencies, discount travel sites, and operators of passenger trains, buses, taxis, limousines, ferries, toll bridges and highways, and parking lots and garages. Please note that some merchants that provide transportation and travel-related services are not included in this category; for example, real estate agents, websites or owners that rent vacation properties, in-flight goods and services, on-board cruise line goods and services, sightseeing activities, tourist attractions, merchants within airports, and merchants that rent vehicles for the purpose of hauling. In addition, the purchasing of points or miles does not qualify in this category.

Q. What are some data points for merchants or services that got coded as Travel?
  • Southwest gift card purchased through southwest.com instantly credited back as "TRAVEL CREDIT $300/YEAR"
  • MTA metro cards credited back as Travel Credit"
  • FasTrak toll
  • BART for the bay area (physical outside machines, unsure if online works)
  • Priceline Name Your Own Price (for both hotels and cars)
  • airbnb
  • EZ-Pass (NJ)
  • NCL Gift Cards (Norwegian Cruise Line)
  • Uber and UberEats
    NJ Transit Train
Q. Can I make purchases before I receive the card ?

A. Yes. Send a secure message to Chase and you will see the card number in Sent messages. Expiry date for those applied in August is 08/19. Some service do not require CVV to complete the transaction. Activation is not required for this card.

Q. Which services or merchants do not require CVV?
  • Amazon.com
  • Alaska Air
  • Geico
  • Verizon Wireless
Q. Is it possible to get the 100K bonus on the first statement?

Yes, but you may have to act very quickly; you may have less than a week. It depends on the timing of your first statement. 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 first due date is October 20, that statement should close on September 23, and spending would have to clear by approximately September 16 in order to get the bonus points.

Is the $300 really for Calendar year i.e., Can I get in both December 2016 and January 2017 ?

Yes. See below.

$300 Annual Travel Credit: [chase.com]
$300 Annual Travel Credit: A statement credit will automatically be applied to your account when your card is used for purchases in the travel category, up to $300 in statement credits annually ("annually" means the year beginning with your account open date through the first December statement date of that same year, and each 12 billing cycles starting after your December statement date through the following December statement date). Purchases are when you, or an authorized user, use a card to make purchases of products and services, minus returns or refunds. Buying products and services with your card, in most cases, will count as a purchase; however, the following types of transactions won't count: balance transfers, cash advances, travelers checks, foreign currency, money orders, wire transfers or similar cash-like transactions, lottery tickets, casino gaming chips, race track wagers or similar betting transactions, any checks that access your account, overdraft advances, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, and fees of any kind, including an annual fee, if applicable. We do not determine whether merchants correctly identify and bill transactions as being of a certain type. For more information about Chase rewards categories, see www.Chase.com/RewardsCategoryFAQs [Chase.com]. Statement credit(s) will post to your account the same day your travel category purchase posts to your account and will appear on your monthly credit card billing statement within 1-2 billing cycles. Qualifying purchases made by authorized users on your account will be included in the $300 Annual Travel Credit. Maximum statement credit accumulation for the Annual Travel Credit is $300 annually. The Annual Travel Credit will be issued for the year in which the transaction posts to your account, through your December statement date. For example, if you pay for baggage fees, but the airline does not post the transaction until after your December statement date, the cost of the baggage fees will be allocated towards the following year's Annual Travel Credit maximum of $300.


Summary of $300 Travel Benefit: With the CSR, you get credits for up to $300 in any travel related expenses per CALENDAR year. That is January->December. The statement credits are issued as these charges post to your account and within a statement period. They even have a tracker on the account page to show you how much you've earned. You do NOT need to wait until the end of the year to get them.

If you get the card in August and spend $300 the next day on a travel coded expense, you will see a $300 credit shortly thereafter.

Then, in January 2017, the clock resets. If you spend another $300 on Jan 1st 2017, you will see ANOTHER $300 credit shortly thereafter. Which means if you cancel the card prior to your AF coming up, you will get $600 in credits for one membership year that spanned two calendar years. If you keep the card, you will be able to continue to get $300/year, as long as you wait for the beginning of the following year.

If you fail to use the credit before the December billing date this year you will lose this years credit.

Required spend for the 100K bonus is $4,000, regardless of if that contains travel spend that was credited through their $300 program benefit. See Chase rep's confirmation below:
"Even if you spend $300.00 on travel purchases and the same is credited back with the annual travel credit benefit, the $300.00 will be counted towards the $4,000.00 spend as long as the same is a purchase made using your credit card.

More info here: https://www.prioritypass.com/en/m...upport/faq
Note that:
- The Select tier probably does not get you a digital card
- The FlyerTalk CSR thread has this link to a tweet from Chase Support [twitter.com] that says "The Priority Pass allows you and your entire travel party to access the lounges at no charge."

More info here as well. [boardingarea.com]

Pre Check / Global Entry

" You are entitled to either: one (1) $100 statement credit per account, OR one (1) $85 statement credit per account, every 4 years in connection with the Global Entry or TSA Pre Check program application fee." See details here: https://creditcards.chase.com/a1/...er-details

It can take several months to get an appointment for the Global Entry interview in some locations. However, you can check your local Global Entry enrollment center for walk-ins. I did the walk-in in Washington, DC and it took less than 10 mins.

Note that each person must be approved individually for Global Entry - children cannot use a parent's membership (as they can on Pre Check).

Also, note that the pre-flight security benefit of Pre Check (and Global Entry) is currently available primarily for US airlines, in 180 airports. Many large international airlines do not currently participate in Pre Check.
https://www.tsa.gov/precheck/map
https://www.tsa.gov/precheck-part...-airlines/
TSA Pre Check Participating Airlines:
Aeromexico, Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Allegiant Air, American Airlines, Cape Air, Delta Air Lines, Etihad Airways, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Lufthansa, OneJet, Seaborne Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Sun Country Airlines, United Airlines, Virgin America, WestJet

Of which, you get $300 back in travel credits for anything travel related, bringing the fee down to $150. Plus you get it per calendar year, so in the first year of the card you get it twice (now -$150. Plus 100k in UR points, which are worth a minimum of $1000 cash or $1500 in travel redemption. Keep banging your head against the wall and maybe you'll realize you're mistaken Wink

The value of this card is not in question, I'm simply sharing the link since it just went live.

No, I'm more like 1/24 (3/24 if you count mortgage and auto loan).

IMO, I don't think many like me would not jump into apply as the link does not mention.

hesitant since it doesn't state 100k anywhere - any others that can confirm that the 100k is noted on their account?
