If you’re unable to get approved for the new Chase Sapphire Reserve card, you might consider a Sapphire Reserve Upgrade from an existing Chase card.
You will NOT earn the 100,000 point sign-up bonus, but you’ll still get the card’s other great perks. For example, the $300 annual credit on travel purchases, 3X Chase Ultimate Rewards points on travel & dining, and the Priority Pass Select membership.
And you’ll be able to get 1.5 cents each for any existing Chase Ultimate Rewards points you have when you redeem through the Chase Ultimate Rewards Travel Portal.
With the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card, You’ll Get a 50% Bonus When You Redeem Chase Ultimate Rewards Points Through the Chase Travel Portal! This Means You’ll Use Less Points to Book Flights Like JetBlue Mint Business Class!
I’ll explain how you can upgrade!
