Rumor Update: Chase Sapphire Reserve 100k

It’s time for more GOSSSSSIP! A couple days ago I reported that Chase was rolling out a super duper primo card to challenge Citi and Amex called the Chase Sapphire Reserve .

Man o man o man o man – the rumor mills are just buzzing today.  Wellllllllll it’s all over the place right now, from DOC and TravelCodex to One Mile at a Time, but alllllll the Chase Sapphire Reserve 100k RUMORS started with this guy :

You know what the potential of this card makes me wanna do?


It’s like when your football team comes from behind and wins in OT. You just wanna buy everyone drinks and run through the street naked. I dunno, maybe that’s just me. Look Wembley, if the Colts win this fall on British soil…I may be buying drinks and streaking! Bring your green hat!

The three things about this card that rock my socks

  1. 100k sign up bonus
  2. $300 annual airline credit
  3. 3x dining and travel

I would pretty much use this card for nearly everything other than groceries and category bonuses with the freedom. I recently picked up a Citi Prestige and I’d still use that card to max out the perks like the buy3get1 free and the annual air pass, but this Reserve card sounds SIIIIIIIICK!

What do you think? We need to find ways around 5/24

We keep an up to date spreadsheet that lists the best ever offers: You can find that spreadsheet here.

Historically 80k is a very, very good offer and hit in both 2022 and 2023. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back.

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex®  and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners

Annual fee is quite low at $95 a year + you get a 10% anniversary bonus on points + $50 hotel credit in Chase travel.

    I am saddened by 5/24. And also that I didn’t have the forethought to keep my husband in the safe zone for 5/24 when I started this game a few years ago.
