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.

    Thank you for sharing this, of all sites, I trust you the most

  • Doughbawl

    I just signed up for the card last week! #facepalm

    Your link to the personal spg amex isn’t working. Do you have an alternate?

  • Bucksmith

    Oh, oh. Gary Leff just posted that if you’re thinking about this card, better act NOW! Somebody is going to lose some face on Monday.

  • DWT

    Well, it could be something completely unrelated to the sign up bonus, like introducing an EMV chip and starting a new marketing campaign emphasizing it.

    That view gives me the impression that you took the picture from the apartments on the corner of Dade Blvd. and Meridian. #stalker

    It works- just make sure you are logged out of your Amex account or use a different browser

  • thepointsguy

    Dont worry- you may be able to call and have the new feature/promo/whatever added to your account. Chase has great customer service

  • DWT

    I wonder if this language on is any indication of what is to come, or whether it is just some generic marketing language someone came up with:

    First it says “Seize the weeknight. Make eating out an enjoyment opportunity any night of the week.” That makes sense as all dining gets double points.

    But then it says “Reclaim the weekend. Enjoy Saturday and Sunday. Because what you do this weekend could be very rewarding”

    The language is oddly specific yet also vague at the same time. I guess we shall see next week.

    Still to be announced

  • Sam

    Any idea when we’ll know what the changes are? No one’s really saying anything.
