Beginning this Sunday, Jan. 12, 2020, the Chase Sapphire Reserve will cost $100 more for new applicants — as of that date, the annual fee jumps from $450 to $550, as the issuer adds a slew of new perks. There’s a silver lining in Chase’s planned changes, though — new customers who apply here before Jan. 12 will pay the lower $450 fee, and they’ll still get to take advantage of all of the new benefits.
