You can apply now in a Chase branch for the new 100,000 points Sapphire Preferred signup bonus and get the $95 annual fee waived, plus a $50 credit to offset grocery purchases.
Here’s how it’ll work: during signup the offer will be showing the older offer of 80,000 points after spending $4,000, waived $95 annual fee, and $50 grocery credit. After meeting the spend, you’ll get the 80,000 points bonus and you’ll also automatically get a separate credit for 20,000 points. This is detailed in a memo being sent out to bankers, see below.
We wrote earlier today that the 100,000 offer is already available in some branches, yet readers reported being told that they were only being told about the 80,000 + $50 offer. In fact, some of the official signage will continue to show the 80,000 offer, but Chase has assured bankers that an additional 20,000 points will automatically be applied once the spend is met. Both points bonuses will credit on the same statement when you meet the spend, as detailed in the memo.
Best is to try confirming with your banker before applying since it’s possible these details vary by branch. Personally, if I’m not able to verify with the banker, I’d just apply in-branch and hope for the best that this is the case.
The Chase memo seems to indicate that this triple-header offer will be available through the end of June. However, my guess (based on earlier reports) is that it’ll end on June 17th. The beginning date for the triple offer was on June 3rd: if you applied in a Chase branch since that date, you’re probably eligible automatically for the triple offer even if you weren’t told anything about it.
Let me just add this time again: if referral links come out with the 100,000 offer and you have a spouse who can refer you, it might still be a better deal (and more convenient) to do that. The referral bonus is typically either 10,000 points or 15,000 points (currently 15k, I believe). If you wait past June 17th you are risking losing the triple-header offer; it could make sense to wait another week or so to see if the referral offer gets updated and then just apply in branch if that doesn’t happen before the 17th.
