[Highly YMMV] Chase Sapphire Preferred 100,000 Points Bonus via Chase Credit Journey

The Offer

No direct link, check your Chase Credit Journey (direct link)

  • Signup for the Chase Sapphire Preferred via referral link and get 100,000 points after $4,000 in spend within the first three months.

The public offer is 80,000.

Card Details

  • $95 annual fee, not waived
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Primary car rental insurance
  • $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:
    • 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
    • 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.
  • Transferable points
  • Redeem points on Chase’s travel portal at a value of 1.25¢ due to the 25% travel redemption bonus
  • Not eligible if you’ve received a sign up bonus on the Sapphire Preferred/Reserve in the last 48 months (standard is now 48 months)
  • Chase 5/24 rule applies to this card

Our Verdict

Chase recently upped the bonus to 80,000 points, and this targeted offer gets you a whopping 100,000 points. It’s been found by some in their Chase Credit Journey, though even some who see it have the link erroring out. YMMV.

For someone in 2-player mode, this 100k isn’t much better than the 80k after factoring in the 15,000 points referrer bonus. Another option is to sign up in a Chase branch and probably get the 80,000 points offer + waived $95 annual fee.

Will Chase Match The New? (Depends, United Quest Being Matched)

Update 4/15/22: Chase is matching to the United Quest 90,000 mile bonus (Hat tip to NoShitDickTracy). So far it’s not looking good for them matching the new 80,000 Sapphire bonus.

Original post: Chase had a long-standing policy to match increased public signup bonuses which come out within 90 days of signup. However, lately it seems to vary by the offer: when a new signup offer comes out, they apparently decide internally whether or not to match the offer, and customers find out by asking and finding out whether they are matching this current offer. We’ve seen them match both business cards and personal cards, yet other times we see them not agreeing to give a match.

Chase just released a new 80,000 points + $50 bonus on the Sapphire Preferred card (previously 60,000 + $50) and a 60,000 points bonus on the Sapphire Reserve card (previously 50,000 points).

Are they matching these offers for those who recently signed up? No. The data points we’ve seen so far from those who called or messaged Chase indicate that this offer is not eligible for matching.

One caveat: it is possible that Chase still hasn’t come out with a decision on this, and eventually they’ll decide to match the offer for those who recently signed up. We’ll certainly update if that happens, but for now the going assumption is that these offers are not eligible for matching. Also worth noting that in previous Sapphire Preferred increased bonuses they never ended up giving the match, so I’d assume they will not match this time either.

[Live] Chase Sapphire Reserve Offers $5/month DoorDash Account Credit & Extends DashPass Benefit

Update 4/4/22: You should now see the $5 Doordash credits in your Doordash account. (It’s not a credit card statement credit – it’s a Doordash credit for accounts with a linked Sapphire Reserve card.) If you’d like, you can wait until June 1st and you should have $15 accumulated which is easier to use for a meal. We’ll try posting a reminder each quarter on the first of June, September, December, and March to use up the credit.

Update 4/1/22: The $5 benefit and the Dashpass benefit are now live. FAQ

Update 2/1/22: Media sources are confirming both of these things: the $5 monthly credit and the DashPass extension through 2024 (for Chase Sapphire Preferred, Reserve & No annual fee Sapphire). Two additional details on the $5 monthly credit:

  • The $5 credit is for Sapphire Reserve cardholders and it will begin in April 2022 and continue through December 2024.
  • The $5 credit expires after 3 months. This makes it possible to easily use them in $15 increments four times per year. Much more useful than $5 expiring each month.

Update 1/31/22: It has now been confirmed that DashPass has been extended until 2024.

Original post (1/29/22): A Reddit member heard from a Chase rep about a renewal of DoorDash benefits coming to the Sapphire Reserve card:

We’ll have to wait and see exactly which Chase cards will have these offerings, but the Sapphire Reserve will certainly be included, per the report.

(Extended through June) New Chase ‘Pay Yourself Back’ Categories: Dining, AirBnb, Away Luggage

Update 3/12/22: Chase has now extended the Dining, Airbnb, and annual fee credit with the 50% bonus through June 30, 2022. The Away category still is showing the March 31, 2022 end date. (ht Eric and anita)

Original Post 9/30/21:

Chase has now revealed the new Pay Yourself Back categories on the Sapphire Reserve and Sapphire Preferred cards.

Sapphire Reserve: Get 50% more value with Pay Yourself Back® New categories! Get more value when you redeem your points for statement credits toward Airbnb, Away and dining purchases by Mar. 31, 2022.

Sapphire Preferred: Get 25% more value with Pay Yourself Back® New categories! Get more value when you redeem points for statement credits toward Airbnb and Away purchases by Mar. 31, 2022.

Here’s how I understand what’s coming on October 1st:

  • they’re adding AirBnb and Away (awaytravel.com) as additional Pay Yourself Back options for October 2021 through March 2022 on both Sapphire Preferred and Sapphire Reserve
  • the Dining option (including takeout and eligible delivery services) will be extended through March 2022 only for Sapphire Reserve cards only, not for Sapphire Preferred
  • the Grocery and Home Improvement categories will expire today (September 30)
  • as was showing previously, you can also offset your annual fee through December 31 as an additional Pay Yourself Back option on the Sapphire Reserve card
  • as was showing previously, you can also choose Select Charities to Pay Yourself Back through December 2022 on both Sapphire Preferred and Sapphire Reserve
  • (the option to Fund Vaccine through Lyft seems to be expiring on September 30)

We had reported that Chase would be extending Pay Yourself Back through December and that we didn’t know what the categories would be for the consumer card. It now appears that they’ve extended it all the way through March and that the categories are changing, as noted. The categories will remain the same for the business cards.

Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders get 1.5¢ in value and Chase Sapphire Preferred cardholders get 1.25¢ in value when redeeming points against specific categories. Business cardholders get 1.25¢ on the Business Preferred & Plus and 1.1¢ on the Business Cash & Unlimited.

Our Verdict

Sapphire Reserve still has the useful Dining category, but Sapphire Preferred categories won’t be useful to a lot of people.

(Just to clarify a point some people seem confused about in the comments: my understanding is that PYB redemption dates are the dates that you can actually make the redemption. It doesn’t matter when you make/made the purchase – until the end of today (September 30th) you’ll be able to redeem against groceries and once midnight strikes you won’t be able to do so; and after midnight tonight you should be able to redeem against Airbnb charges that were made in the past 90 days.)
