Last summer, we reported that Chase would be replacing its most exclusive product, the Palladium card, with an updated product known as the J.P. Morgan Reserve card. If you hold the Palladium card, you had the option to ‘upgrade’ to the new JPM Reserve card after it was announced last August. Now, however, it appears that you’re not going to be able to hold on to the Palladium for much longer.

TPG received some literature from J.P. Morgan explaining that his (now canceled) Palladium account would be converted into a JPM Reserve account as of July 17, 2017. In case you’ve forgotten about this card, here’s a refresher on some of the notable features of the product, which match those of the Chase Sapphire Reserve:

  • Earn 3 points per dollar spent on travel and dining expenses
  • $300 annual travel credit
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Priority Pass Select membership
  • $450 annual fee; $75 for each authorized user

Though we were expecting these features on this card, the literature provided by Chase does contain some notable information — J.P. Morgan is offering Palladium cardholders who will be transitioning to the JPM Reserve card 35,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points if they spend at least $75,000 between the anniversary date and the date that the account changes over.
