Chase Rumors: Increased Minimum Spending & Possible Higher Bonuses

Via View From the Wing, there may be changes coming soon to the Chase Sapphire Preferred card.

It’s rumored that the minimum spending requirement for the card is about to increase.  Currently, you’ll get a sign-up bonus of 40,000 points (worth ~$500 or more in travel) after spending $3,000 in the 1st 3 months.  But some folks are seeing referral offers which increase the minimum spending by $1,000 to $4,000 within 3 months.

I’ve called a couple of Chase branches and they’ve verified that the card will be modified next week.  And I wouldn’t be surprised if other Chase cards are changing, too.
