Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here – Chase Sapphire Reserve

When the Chase Sapphire Reserve launched last month, it quickly became one of the most talked-about credit cards in recent memory. Points and miles hobbyists everywhere were quick to apply for the card with eyes set on the sky-high 100,000-point sign-up bonus and its superior perks. The card was so popular that Chase actually ran out of the embedded metal cards — some new cardmembers received plastic cards to use temporarily, but they’ll get metal replacements once they’re back in stock.

Needless to say, there were — and still are — tons of questions about the card. Can authorized users bring guests into Priority Pass lounges free of charge? Which expenses does the $300 annual travel credit cover? Will you earn the sign-up bonus if you upgrade your Chase Sapphire Preferred? Does 5/24 apply?

On Wednesday, September 28, at 5:30pm ET, I’ll be joined by the President of Chase Branded Cards, Pamela Codispoti, who has the answers about the Reserve card. During a Facebook Live session, she’ll answer all of the burning questions that you might still have.

If you have any specific questions for Pam, email FBLive@thepointsguy.com before September 27 at 10:00am ET time. Of course, you’ll also be able to comment during the Facebook Live to have your questions answered. I look forward to hearing from you.
