Could a Pending Application Impact the Sign-Up Bonus You Receive?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Donna, commented:

I applied in-branch for the Chase Sapphire Reserve the day before the sign-up bonus was reduced.  My application was not immediately approved.  If I’m approved for the card after the expiration date of the higher sign-up bonus offer, what sign-up bonus will I receive?

Fantastic question, Donna!

If you’re approved for a card after your application was pending, you’ll receive the sign-up bonus that was available on the day you applied for the card.  

But to avoid any issues, I always recommend you take screenshots of credit card offers during the application process.  And if you apply in-branch, the banker should give you paperwork with the sign-up bonus details for your new card.

If You’re Approved for a Card After a Pending Application, You’ll Earn the Sign-Up Bonus Available on the Day You Applied

I’ll explain what you should know about earning a sign-up bonus with a pending credit card application.

Which Sign-Up Bonus Will You Earn If Your Card Application Is Approved After a Limited Time-Offer End Date?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Amanda, commented:

I applied for the limited-time AMEX Starwood sign-up bonus on the last day of the offer.  But I was approved the day after the offer ended when the sign-up bonus decreased.  Will I earn the higher sign-up bonus?

Great question, Amanda!

Lots of folks wait until the end of a limited-time offer to apply for a card.  And this could be the reason your application isn’t instantly approved.

But as long as you submit your card application before the limited-time offer ends, you’re eligible to earn the sign-up bonus that was available on the day you applied.

Should You Use the Chase Sapphire Reserve or Chase Hyatt Card for Hyatt Stays?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Sudeep, tweeted:

Which card is better to use for an upcoming stay at a Hyatt hotel?  The Chase Sapphire Reserve or Chase Hyatt Visa?

Thanks for the question!  Both the Chase Sapphire Reserve and Chase Hyatt Visa earn 3 points per $1 spent at Hyatt hotels.

So it depends on what type of points you want to earn.  However, I’d recommend paying with the Chase Sapphire Reserve if you have both cards!

Update: Earn 3X Points on Almost Anything With This New Card!

Last week I shared a rumor about new valuable US Bank card, the US Bank Altitude Reserve.

And now we have new details about the card!  Some are a bit disappointing, but some are really exciting!

For example, the $325 annual travel credit is per cardmember year, NOT calendar year.  So you won’t be able to get it twice before the second annual fee is due (like you can with the Chase Sapphire Reserve).

But getting approved for the card might be easier than we first thought!  I’ll explain.
