I wrote earlier about Emily’s new Chase Sapphire Preferred credit card with a sign-up bonus of 50,000 bonus points which could be used towards travel or transferred to select airlines or hotels.

Given the trend towards increasing sign-up bonuses, I wrote:

You should also know that the sign-up bonus on this card was only 25,000 points a few months ago.  Given the trend toward mega-bonuses, there may be a chance that the bonus on the Chase Sapphire Preferred card is increased.

Well, there is a report of a targeted offer with 100,000 bonus points as the sign-up offer!

Specifically:

“Earn 100,000 bonus points when you spend $500 within the first 3 months.”

There is only 1 report so far about the 100,000 point offer, but I wanted to let you know about it right away so that you can decide if you wanted to apply for the Chase Sapphire Preferred now or wait for more details to emerge.

Here’s what I am going to do:

Wait

Wait 3 to 4  weeks before I submit my application for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card to see if I get targeted for the offer or if others get targeted for the offer.

Ask Chase to match the 100,000 bonus for Emily

If more folks get the targeted offer, I’m going to write – using the secure email option online – as well as call Chase to ask them to match the 100,000 point bonus for Emily.

Update: The Fat Wallet thread says that the 100,000 bonus point offer code is S6V.

I sent a secure message indicating that Emily was disappointed at not getting the 100,000 bonus point offer, and explained how she’s had a banking relationship with Chase for many years, and how we would like it to continue for many more years (hint, hint!).

I then called Chase and the rep said that she had “escalated” the matter to corporate and that Emily would get a letter in the mail with the decision within 10 days.  Let’s see what happens!

Update 2: Emily got the additional 50,000 bonus points!

Update 3: This deal is dead since Chase is no longer granting an additional 50,000 points.

any chance this may still work?!

Hi there,

I recently got approved for the Chase Sapphire Preferred and thought there’s no harm asking for the additional 50k. To my dismay, the personal banker said that it was targeted and that I won’t be able to get it. I sent him an email saying that it’s disappointing and that I have been a loyal Chase customer for quite some time.

Let’s see what he says!

I just called trying to get it as well i recently got approved for the spend $3000 and get 50,000 points on the sapphire preferred card. They said unless i got the invitation in the mail thats the only way they would give me the additional 50,000 points. I was however granted 2,000 points for calling in aka $20 never hurts to try and i urge everyone to call in!!

Hi there,

I have a chase freedom card and BOA card and I’m very tempted to apply for the Chase sapphire preferred to get the bonus. I have two questions. Will I be approved since I was approved 6 months ago for the chase freedom? and should I wait and not apply perhaps Chase will up the bonus points? what do you think?

I currently have an old Chase United Mileage Plus Visa Signature credit card that I use for all my purchases. After reading your blogs (re: Chase and their restrictions, bonuses, etc.), I realize that I can do better. Should I cancel this card and apply for the Sapphire card? And how do you arrange to get targeted? Thanks.

@hawaiian – I deleted your email address because it was visible publicly. The Chase Sapphire card offers a 50K bonus which you can transfer to your United account later. It offers 2X points on travel and dining and 1X points on everything else. It is one of the very few cards for which I would actually pay a fee. Unfortunately, you can’t arrange to get targeted – Chase has to send you the targeted offer.
