Card Overview

The Chase Sapphire Reserve has your back, ensuring you get your money's worth if you ever run into a mishap during traveling. This card gives you an annual $300 travel credit as well as a full package of luxury benefits. By having the Chase Sapphire Reserve card you can effectively higher the value of all your Ultimate Rewards points and receive 1.5 cents per point towards any travel booked on the Chase Travel portal.

Card-Smart Tips & Advice
  • Credit: Excellent credit needed (you will probably need at least one credit card open for more than a year)
  • Chase 5/24 rule: Chase will decline an applicant that has opened 5 or more cards (other issuers included) in the past 24 months. Hence, 5/24 rule
  • Max cards: You can get approved for up to 2 Chase credit cards in 30 days. Business cards and personal cards are counted separately
  • Apply for two cards: If you apply for one Chase card and get approved, it is recommended to apply for a second card since Chase is very good about approving for two cards, even within the same day. If the first application is still pending, wait for it to be approved before you apply for a second card
  • Credit bureau: Chase Bank will usually pull your Experian credit report
  • Double dipping: If you have any Sapphire card currently open (ReservePreferred, or the plain Sapphire) or if you received a welcome bonus on any Sapphire card within the past 48 months then Chase will not approve you for a new Sapphire card (regardless of which Sapphire card you apply for). You can close or product change the card and apply for a new one after approx 48-72 hours (As long as you did not receive a welcome offer on any Sapphire card within the past 48 months)
  • Combining same-day credit inquiries: Some data points suggest that credit inquiries for all Personal Chase cards for same-day applications will be combined; also, credit inquiries for all Business Chase cards for same-day applications will be combined. Credit inquiries for Personal and Business card applications will not be combined. More recent data points suggest that Chase credit inquiries will not be combined even for two Personal or two Business cards for same-day applications
  • Check application status: You can check your application status at  / Customer Center / Check my app status or call 1 888 338 2586
  • Reconsideration: If declined you can call 1 888 609 7805 to be reconsidered
  • Quickest way to get my card: You will be able to add your new card to your mobile wallet immediately after you get approved (it can sometimes take up to an hour for it to show up in your online login). You can also request Chase to overnight your physical card by calling Chase customer service.

  • Downgrade options: The Chase Sapphire Reserve card can be downgraded to the Sapphire Preferred ($95), Freedom Unlimited ($0), Freedom Flex ($0), or to the Sapphire ($0) - only available via product change. Please note, Chase will only allow you to downgrade the card after 12 months of account opening.
