Yeah. But it’s better to downgrade to a free card so your credit isn’t affected
04-18-2022 at 11:44 AM
yes but the yearly fee is charged like a week after opening account... from what I remember when I opened this card last year...
04-19-2022 at 10:48 AM
You can't avoid the annual fee for the first year. But it's a small fraction of the benefits you receive in return. You can cancel the card before, or just after the second annual fee hits and avoid it. Although you will lose your points if you haven't transferred them to an active account that supports Chase Reward Points (or externally to a travel partner.)

If you apply in branch you can avoid the initial annual fee. I did this last week and no fee was charged.

They went down to 60k points, back to 80k so I would say hold out. They probably realized they werent getting enough sign ups.

The main ones are:



$300 travel credit (includes things like parking, so it's easy to use)

Global Entry every 4 years

1.5 x point value for travel vs 1.25

Priority Pass lounge access



Not sure if it's for new cardholders, but it may also include DoorDash Dashpass, a $5/month Doordash credit



If you travel a lot, CSR is worth it IMO.



I was thinking of going for the CSP offer, getting the points, then xferring the points (and credit) to the CSR to boost the value of the points when I cancel the CSP

Was approved for this card @80K signup bonus a couple weeks ago. Some notes:

This is a great card for anyone who travels or plans to soon travel!
Call your local branch and see if they offer 80K signup + first year fee waived. If you do apply in branch, allot at least 30 minutes for this Frown.
If you have a Peloton membership, note that the Preferred will credit you $60 total off fees, but I think only through June, so act quick!
I didn't get my card after a week, despite a 1-2 day delivery promise. I called in, and they said, oh, whoops, we forgot to ship it! (and they then indeed shipped it 2nd day air via UPS).
You'll get the most value from the 80K points BY FAR by transferring them strategically to airline/hotel partners (most often: United and Hyatt). Do some reading across blogs to learn more.
I know when I applied for this card, I did it in the branch and got a $125 grocery credit incentive. Basically every time I shopped at a grocery store I received a credit back until the $125 credit was maxed…. It may be worth it to call a banker & ask if they have that promo as it was only for in branch applications, not online & worth it to a trip to the bank, if you ask me!
I don't think there's been a better offer on the reserve in many years?

Outside of the SUB the CS > CSP used to be a no brainer, but with the higher AF on the CSR, and the improved benefits/earn on CSP it's a tougher choice now.


Today it's $155 more (removing the travel credit from the price difference) for CSR...

SUPER generously if we count the GE/TSA credit as $20 a year that drops it to $135/yr more for CSR.



For the $135 you get:

Priority Pass (still the good one that includes restaurants unlike Amex)

Marginally better travel insurance coverage

"free" roadside assitance (up to 4 calls a year, max $50 per call)

You do get significantly better purchase protection (10k per claim instead of $500- but then I'm buying most expensive stuff with a Citi card for 2 years of extra warranty anyway)

1.5x for your points in the travel portal vs 1.25 for CSP- but this is rarely a worthwhile use of points for most folks compare to transfers.

10x points (vs 5x on CSP) for cash spend in the travel portal or Chase Dining portals- but those again aren't frequently the ideal way to book for most folks anyway.



So as I say, when this was $35-55/yr it was easy... ONE 2 person use of priority pass at an airport restaurant more than covered this- if you get anything out of any other benefit you're golden.


At $135 it's much more marginal for many.

anyone know how to find out if you're eligible for the bonus points? I had a sapphire preferred years ago and have never been able to figure out when my 5 years has passed to be eligible again. TIA

edit: its 4 years and I was able to google the sapphire preferred number and talk to an agent to find out when i was eligible again.
