The Chase Sapphire Preferred is currently offering an unprecedented 100,000 points for spending $4,000 in 3 months. With a low $95 annual fee and new benefits like a $50 annual hotel credit, triple points on dining, streaming, and online grocery, transferrable points, and a 10% anniversary points bonus, the card is an incredibly good value. You can read more about the offer here.
We know the offer is ending soon, but there has been some conflicting information on when exactly the offer will be pulled.
After seeing a Chase ad on Google showing that the offer was ending, I reached out to Chase Media Relations and they told me that October 6 would be the final day for the offer. Other websites were also told of an end date today, without a specific time.
Last year when the Sapphire Preferred 80,000 point offer was ending, it was extended until early the morning after it was said to be over. Would that happen again?
Sure enough, the Chase ad on Google has been updated to show an October 7th end date:
So is it the 6th or the 7th? And what time will it be pulled?
Here’s my advice.
Every time an incredible offer ends, there are endless procrastinators who show up afterward. Don’t let that be you. This is truly an unprecedented card offer and you don’t want to miss it! Apply now and you won’t miss it. It’s as simple as that.
There are also reports of people being denied a couple of months ago, who are getting approved now, so you may want to reapply if you’re in that situation.
If you converted a Sapphire card to a Freedom card to make yourself eligible for this bonus as outlined in in these FAQs and in this post, current reports are that it is taking 2 days until you can apply and get approved for a Sapphire card.
If you converted on Monday, then you should apply now.
There are several data points of people who converted from a Sapphire Reserve to Freedom late Monday evening that have been approved for Sapphire Preferred this morning!
The only reason to wait until tomorrow to apply is if you converted yesterday or if you want to press your luck and convert now. There’s no sure bet the offer will still be around tomorrow or what time the offer may be pulled.
It’s also worth noting that just having a Chase checking account greatly improves your odds of being approved for this card, even if you have been rejected for it.
My gut tells me that this offer will likely be pulled sometime early tomorrow morning, but there’s no reason for most people to risk it. This is the strongest card offer at a low annual fee and low spend threshold that I’ve ever seen, so take advantage of it now!
