Chase surprises us with its new travel benefits

    

1 minute read

According to leaked cardmember agreements it looks like Chase is making some changes to the Chase Sapphire Reserve & Chase Sapphire Preferred card. Based on these agreements these changes have been in effect since August 16th

Sapphire Reserve Changes

  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 10x on Chase dining, hotel and car rental purchases through Chase Travel portal
    • 5x on airline travel booked through the Chase Travel portal.
    • 3x on all other dining and all other travel
    • 1x on all other purchases

 

Sapphire Preferred Changes

  • $50 Annual Hotel Credit. This is per cardmember year, rather than calendar year. Must be booked through the Chase Travel Portal.
  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 10% Anniversary point bonus. When you renew your card Chase will offer a 10% bonus spend. For example if you spend $25,000 you’d earn 2,500 bonus points.  This is award after the annual fee is paid. This doesn’t apply to the sign up bonus.
    • 5x on travel booked through the Chase Travel portal.
    • 3x on Dining/Streaming Services/online grocery (excludes: excluding Target, Walmart and
      wholesale clubs)
    • 2x on travel
    • 1x on all other purchases

Our conclusion? Chase is responding to the changes made in the American Express Platinum card benefits to make sure they are ahead, my advice? Take advantage of the good benefits and let the good times roll!
