This morning online applications became available for the new Sapphire Reserve Card, which is offering an incredible 100,000 point welcome bonus. That’s in addition to the long term value the card will offer, like a $300 annual travel credit, plus triple points on dining and travel.
The application was available starting early in the day on the East Coast, though it seems like they may not have been fully set up at the time. While you could load the actual application, there wasn’t an official landing page for the card that directed to the application. In other words, the application as such didn’t indicate the 100,000 point welcome bonus.
This wasn’t really an issue, since the only version of the offer is for 100,000 points upon completing minimum spend, and those who got approved were able to confirm the bonus by calling after the fact.
So while I felt comfortable recommending applying through that link, some people remained (understandably) skeptical, and wanted to wait until the official application with the landing page was out before applying.
Well, the official Chase Sapphire Reserve landing page is now available, and it indicates the 100,000 point welcome bonus. The page has been a bit glitchy the past hour, so there’s a chance you may get an error message, in which case I recommend waiting a few minutes and then trying again.
So if you’re one of those people who was waiting, now you have it!
Lastly, keep in mind that Chase doesn’t seem to be approving people for the card if they’ve opened more than five credit cards in the past 24 months, so it’s something to be aware of. Those people still have the option of upgrading an existing card, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, to the Sapphire Reserve. However, if you do so, you’ll be forgoing the welcome bonus.
