Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card 90,000 Point In-Branch Offer Available

The rumored offer would be two tiered, 80K for spending $4K in three months and an additional 10K if you spend $6K total within the first six months of card opening (so $2K on top of the $4K first tier spend).
We hope that affiliate links will closely mirror this offer, but as of now we have no word on that. Waiting a week or two to to see if our affiliate links get the offer would be appreciated, it costs you nothing and supports us and allows us to do all that we do free of charge.
Personal referral links cannot be stacked with in branch offers, so if you want to refer someone, waiting a bit is also advised.
No guarantee, but Chase has been more generous with matching offers recently so applying with affiliate or referral links and then asking Chase to match may also work.

Updates to Priority Pass for Capital One Cardholders

As of Jan. 1, 2023, the Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card will no longer provides access to Priority Pass restaurant, shopping and spa services worldwide. This change is pretty bad news for Venture X cardholders as their Priority Pass memberships have been majorly devalued.

Before Chase cardholders start laughing at the Capital One crowd, you should know that the changes to Capital One’s Priority Pass policy were announced as a change related to Visa Infinite benefits (which is the same card type as the Chase Sapphire Reserve® card). Although Chase hasn’t made any statements yet about whether the Sapphire Reserve’s Priority Pass benefits will be affected; however, it’s certainly in the realm of possibility.
