Just a quick update that the minimum spending on the Chase Sapphire Preferred which offers a 40,000 Ultimate Rewards point sign-up bonus is increasing back to $3,000 for 1 to 2 weeks from the current $2,000 by 2:00 or 3:00 pm EST today.
I suspect this may be because the public offer on the Chase website is still for $3,000 minimum spending and Chase wants to align the offers.
I wouldn’t go out of my way to apply for the card now, since the $2,000 minimum spending should be back in 1 to 2 weeks (or so I’m told). But I would send that secure message to Chase ASAP and ask to get matched to the lower spending requirement if you applied for the Chase Sapphire Preferred within the last 93 days.
