Chase Sapphire

July 6th, 2011 at 12:47 pm

Over the weekend, I received my new Chase Sapphire card. My offer was 50,000 bonus pts if I spend at least 3k in the first 3 months. My boyfriend bought his trailer today, it came to $2600ish. That means I only have to spend $400 in the next 3 months. With gas so high, that will be no problem.

Edit: Just for the record, I am not financing the trailer for BF. He will be paying in full when the bill arrives. This is merely a devious plot to rack up reward points. Smile

I just emailed Chase using the suggested script from My Money Blog, asking that they extend the 100,000 bonus pts offer to me. They don't have to, so we will see if they are willing or not.

At any rate, I will have at least $250 cash for my trouble ($500 split with BF).

Thanks again, Monkey Mama!!

Update: Got a response already. The answer is no, I will not be getting the extra 50,000 pts. Further, the rep said they will be reversing the extra bonus pts already awarded to other customers! Here is the actual response:

    Hey, it was worth a shot at least... you never know what will lead to a "YES" response, right? I really like the idea that you and your BF, and that it will give you some insurance of getting at least those 50,000 points! Nice going...

    Too bad you didn't get the 100,000 mile bonus. But...perhaps you can get your boyfriend to apply. You can combine Sapphire Preferred points.
