It’s been reported on Flyertalk and numerous blogs that Chase has begun offering select customers a whopping 100,000 point sign-up bonus on the Chase Sapphire Preferred card. The current offer that most of you have gotten in on is 50,000 points and a waived first year annual fee, which I think is one of the best deals out there (since Sapphire Preferred points transfer 1:1 to British Airways, Continental, Hyatt, Marriott, Priority Club and Amtrak; link to my original post on the deal).

However, just like American Express did with their 100,000 targeted offer, it seems like Chase is honoring it for many people, even if you weren’t targeted. I suppose they want to build goodwill, so if you’ve gotten the card I recommend sending them a Secure Message through your chase.com account and ask them for the additional 50,000 points. You should reference promotion code S6V. I recommend being polite and letting them know you appreciate the offer and look forward to continuing your strong relationship with them.

I cannot guarantee this method will work, but please feel free to report below on your progress so we can all learn from each others experience. At the end of the day 50,000 is still very good, but 100,000 is amazing (especially since the fee is waived the first year).

I do not have an end-date on the current 50k Sapphire bonus, which means it could end at any time. You can wait and hope to be targeted by Chase or you could apply today for the 50,000 point bonus and then try your luck at asking for 100k. It seems to be working for a lot of people, so as I always say, it never hurts to ask!

The best beginner points and miles card out there.
Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

The Points Guy Assessment:

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is a great pick for the beginner and the frequent traveler. The CSP has superb travel benefits, double points on certain purchases, and a 50,000 point sign up bonus. The $95 annual fee is waived the first year so this puts it as one of the less expensive cards, while still allowing you to earn one of the most valuable point currencies.
