Chase Private Client Arts & Culture Card: Roundup Of Free Museum Benefits And 2017 Changes

Chase Private Client and JP Morgan Private Banking are the banking versions of elite status.

Chase Private Client is officially intended for people with $250K in assets with Chase, but there are other ways to obtain private client status. If you have an existing relationship with a Chase banker they can give you private client status regardless of whether you have any significant assets with Chase. Some bankers claim there is a minimum, but they have the ability to make anyone Private Client if they want to. You may also have luck by promising to move funds to Chase in the future or by moving a business account to Chase. If you have any immediate family with a Private client account you can also get upgraded to Private Client status. If you are added as a joint user on an account (even a safety deposit box) of a Private Client you can also get Private Client status.

JP Morgan Private Banking is intended for people with $10MM in assets with Chase, but there are also easier ways to obtain that status as well, including knowing a Private Banker or working at certain institutions. It offers access to unique credit cards like the JP Morgan Reserve card. That card is essentially a Sapphire Reserve but it also offers a United Club membership, doesn’t have any late fees, doesn’t report spending on your credit report, and it’s made out of a heavier metal.

Being a Private Client can help you get approved for Chase cards if you are over 5/24.

Private Client also waives fees on bank accounts, wire transfers, ATM fees+refunds at other bank’s ATMs, safety deposit boxes, checks, cashier’s checks, money orders, foreign exchange fees on debit usage and withdrawals abroad, and more.

Private Clients also have higher ATM withdrawal limits, higher mobile deposit limits, and higher QuickPay limits.

Finally, Chase Private Clients can also request a Chase Private Client Arts & Culture Card. It’s linked to a specific region and the physical card will only specify the museums in that region, but the card will be accepted nationwide.

I was able to get Private Client status earlier this year and it helped me get approved for a Chase Sapphire Reserve card after applying online and calling reconsideration, despite being over 5/24.

I got a NYC based Private Client Arts & Culture Card, but had no problem using it at the awesome Exploratorium when I took Rafi to San Francisco earlier this year. We both had a great time there and thanks to Chase I saved the $30/person admission fee:

    So if my brother has CPC, and he adds me to his account as a joint, or a safety deposit box, my account will automatically earn the CPC status?

    YMMV regarding using a card from one region in another. Sometimes they’ll check.

    @Dan: I only used my card once outside my region, and generally request in advance for places I visit. However, I’ve heard reports about them checking. Remember that the card has a list of institutions on back and a perhaps less-informed rep would give you a problem if it’s not on there.

    I called my Chase Private Client Banker about a month ago and asked to get one of the arts and culture cards. She informed me that it was not available in our area (Columbus, Ohio)
    Would I be more likely to be able to obtain one if I asked via PM and specified a geographic area?

    Do I need to have a joint acct with the cpc member? Or just being an family member works

    tried PM, asked for card for the Chicago area, reply was ask my mailing address–provided and got reply that I should contact my private banker–who already I told me I can’t have a card because they’re not available in my area. Anyone get one of these cards without actually having an address in the designated areas?

    Is LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) still included for the Los Angeles list? They’re currently on the 2016 pass.

    Overall, not a very impressive list – except for the Bay Area (where I live), and Chicago. I am a recent CPC customer.

    I’ve spoken with my private client banker, I’ve instant messaged Chase and I’ve called the 1-800 number to reach a private client service center. They all tell me you cannot get this card if your address on the account isn’t in one of the service areas for the discounts (ie: Chicago, Texas, AZ, LAX, San francisco, NY, Fla or Seattle)

    Not true. I live in CLE and a CPC banker got me one.

    Yes, I saw that you had one and that prompted me to take the extra steps of using IM and calling the service center (since my private banker already denied me based on location) but I’m not getting anywhere and hearing the same story. Is it possible that the policy has changed? do you have any other ideas on securing this card? Are there any others who’ve recently gotten this card without living in a designated area?

    I just became CPC last week. When I asked my banker, and the CPC toll-free number about the card, they tell me it will be mailed to me automatically in about a month. Is there any way to expedite the process and get it sooner?

    ReplyReply
  26. Dan1 Says:

    @beth: As a last resort, you might want to try visiting a CPC banker while you’re within one of the service areas (i.e. there on vacation, passing through, etc). They might be more inclined to order one for you.
