Update: The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card sign-up bonus offer is now reduced to 40,000 points when you spend $3,000 in the first 3 months.

There’s some buzz in the blogosphere about the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card offer changing on Monday due to an email Chase sent to affiliates. Through a little bit of digging, my understanding is that the sign-up bonus will not be changing, but the change that is happening will be positive. That being said, things can change last minute, but I would personally hold off until Monday if you’ve been thinking about getting the card, which is one of my personal favorites. Until then, have a great weekend! I know I will be enjoying some quality time home after a busy past month of travel.
