Let’s take a look at everything you’ll get with this card!

Great Perks With Chase Sapphire Reserve

Get ready for a long list!  Because there are so many fantastic perks with the Chase Sapphire Reserve card, it needs its own guide.

To start, you’ll earn 3X Chase Ultimate Rewards points on travel & dining.  And 1X Chase Ultimate Rewards points on all other purchases you make.

Chase Sapphire Reserve Benefits Guide

Here’s how the Chase Sapphire Reserve can save you money or enhance your travel experiences:

I love that you can use the $300 travel credit once per calendar year.  So if you could use it for say, a $300 flight in 2016, then for another $300 travel purchase in 2017, before the annual fee is due.

And what’s great about the Global Entry credit is that if you already have Global Entry (like I do), you can use it for a travel companion’s application fee.  That way he or she can speed through the immigration line with you!

Help When You Need It

And there are other benefits to help if you get into a tough situation:

  • Primary rental car auto insurance
  • Trip cancellation & interruption insurance up to $10,000 per trip
  • Trip delay reimbursement up to $500 for delays of 6+ hours
  • Lost luggage reimbursement for yourself and immediate family, up to $3,000 per passenger
  • Baggage delay insurance for up to $100 a day for 5 days on delays of 6+ hours
  • Roadside assistance up to $50 per incident, 4 times per year
  • Travel and emergency assistance for legal and medical referrals
  • Accident insurance for death or dismemberment, up to $1,000,000
  • Emergency evacuation & transportation, up to $100,000
  • Emergency medical & dental benefit, up to $2,500

Hopefully, you’ll never have to use ANY of these perks.  But they are helpful to have, especially if your flights or bags are delayed!

Get Protection on Your Purchases

I’m NOT much of a shopper.  But my mom & sis sure are!  So these perks are perfect for them:

  • Purchase protection for 120 days, up to $10,000 per claim and $50,000 per year
  • Price protection within 90 days, up to $500 per item, $2,500 per year
  • Extended one-year warranty on eligible warranties of 3 years or less from US manufacturers
  • Return protection within 90 days of purchase, up to $500 per item, $1,000 per year

All the Rest

You’ll also get perks like:

  • Access to concierge to book tickets and make reservations
  • Fraud protection & alerts
  • 24/7 access to your account and to someone who can help you with it
  • Access to special travel opportunities and exclusive cardmember experiences

The Chase Sapphire Reserve is simply an incredible card, packed with benefits.

  1. For the $100 statement credit for Global Entry, is that credit once a year or just a one time use. I was just wondering because I was planning to get the Global Entry for myself this year then in 2017, use the $100 credit again for my boyfriend. Thanks!

  2. @Dime – You can use the Global Entry or PreCheck credit once every 4 years. So that wouldn’t work. But there are a few other cards that have a similar perk:

  3. How many guests are you allowed to bring into a lounge with Priority Pass Select? Thx

  4. Does this cover the entire cost for Priority Pass Lounge visits (yearly fee + visit fee)? Also, can I bring a guest?

  5. Is there a concrete answer to whether or not the Priority Pass membership includes 2 guests? I’m getting mixed answers from different blogs.

  6. How can you get the 300$ travel credit for 2016 and 2017 before the annual fee is due ?

    On other blogs they said its reimbursed every December end so we will get for 2016 but for 2017 you will have to wait till dec 2017.

    Am I missing anything ?

  7. @Frank @Steve @David – The language seems to suggest you can bring at least 2 guests for free. I will check into this for you and post when I have an update!

    @Jimin – The $300 annual travel credit resets yearly after your December statement closes. You are reimbursed as you go, so you do NOT have to wait until the following December. You can earn the credit again as soon as early 2017 if you sign-up before December 2016.

  8. @MMS Would that be 2 guests per year or 2 guests per visit?

  9. @MMS maybe it is free for up to 2 guests. A couple years back they were after me for my wife’s visit with me. Strangely enough, my Amex Platinum was not hit with the visit.

  10. How do the Visa Infinite benefits at the Luxury Hotel Collection work? Do you need to book the hotel through their website in order to get the benefits? Or as long as you use the card at one of the properties included you are entitled to the listed benefits?

  11. Can you also let me know how Priority Pass works? Do I sign-up and receive a statement credit?

  12. @Chandra – You have to book through their Travel Concierge to get benefits at the Luxury Hotel Collection:

    “Only hotel stays booked at least 72 hours in advance through Visa Infinite Concierge and paid for on your U.S.-issued Visa Infinite card are eligible for the VIP welcome and complimentary breakfast.”

    And you have to activate your Priority Pass membership, but there is no charge.

  13. Hi!
    I stay at my folks house a lot to help them out. Can I be considered as a household member, and move ultimate rewards between me and my folks? How strict is Chase’s definition?

  14. Do you have to do anything to activate the priority pass benefit? Thanks

  15. @John – Yes, you have to activate the Priority Pass benefit through Chase. I’ll let you know when I have more details!

  16. So was told in branch my husband was pre approved and I was pre qualified . So came home and applied for my husband online. He was not approved, received the we will contact you with a decision. What gives and what are the odds he will get the card? I am not going to apply myself at this point. Any thoughts or info?

  17. Has anyone confirmed that the Priority Pass benefit includes guests?

  18. @Leslie. You MUST apply in branch to exploit the “pre-approved” status. Your hubbby may want to visit a Chase branch today and explain his situation; they may be able to help out with the approval process.

  19. D

    Are you going to post a review of the travel protection features of this card? This might be a huge benefit if they are similar to a travel guard policy in terms of cancellation or trip interruption. I was just approved in the branch (due to your recent write-up) and am waiting to get the card and all of the associated benefit language.
