Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available  View the current offers here – The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

Chase once again upped the ante and introduced a monster offer – the Sapphire Preferred card with a 50,000 point bonus.

Here is the application link, my referral link doesn’t go active until Monday, so if you can wait, I’d appreciate it and on Monday I’ll also be featuring an in-depth review of the card and all of the key features and benefits.

A couple things:
1) If you’ve recently gotten the Sapphire Preferred card with the 25k bonus, you should call or send a secure message to Chase to ask for the 50k. The general rule is that they will give you the bigger bonus if you’ve applied within the last 60 days. Even if you got your card more than 60 days ago, it never hurts to ask.

2) If you recently got in on the Chase British Airways Visa, I’d recommend waiting 30 days before applying for the Sapphire Preferred. There are no set rules with Chase, but I’ve read many reports of people getting approved as long as they space applications 30 days apart. No expiration date was listed on the information I received tonight, which leads me to believe this one will be around for a while (plus they are making all affiliates wait until Monday to start promoting it, so I don’t feel a sense of urgency with this offer).

3) If you are declined for this offer, call Chase and ask them to re-consider. More often than not, they will approve the application- even if it means shifting around some of your existing lines of Chase credit.

Overall, I think this is a phenomenal deal and I hope you can all wait until Monday to use my link. If you want to kill time, I’d consider checking your credit to make sure its in tip top shape, since you should always know where you stand. There are a number of sites including Credit Sesame (Free) and Credit Karma. Until then, have a great weekend and safe travels.
