Chase Is Extending Timeline For Min Spend Requirement (YMMV)

Miles Man, who shared the tip on getting a $15 statement credit from American Express for your Uber credit, is back with another tip.  He was able to get Chase to extend the timeline on his minimum spend for a new welcome offer he was working on.  This is a good move by Chase, as businesses are closed and people are stuck at home spending will dip.  But this will be YMMV because I have another friend that tried a week ago and they said they were not extending as of yet.  Maybe that policy has changed in the last few days and they are more open to it now though.

Chase Extending Timeline Min Spend


Some Of These Offers May Have Ended

Eric recently signed up for the Chase United Business Card which has a massive increased offer right now. The 100,000 point offer comes with a $10,000 spend within 3 months requirement though (this offer ends on April 2nd). That is a large amount of spend for many small businesses as it was but it is even tougher in today’s climate.

He reached out to Chase via secure message and asked for an extension with everything going on.  They were willing to extend his time frame an extra month.  That makes the $10,000 spend target much easier to swallow now.

Final Thoughts

This is a very customer friendly move by Chase.  I am not sure if they are only doing it for business cards right now, but it is worth trying on personal cards too.  The newly increased Chase Ink Preferred offer is another one where an extension could really help.

I wouldn’t sign up for a new card expecting this extension though.  This is not written policy and it is not guaranteed that they will extend you the same courtesy.

    • I wonder if others will follow suit or not. Seems like it would make sense if they are waiving payments etc. for some.

  1. I have the same card and was halfway through my spend requirement. Now that looks a little tougher to do in the remaining time.

    I’d secured messaged Chase and asked for 90 more days! I’ll let ya know what they say. Even an additional 30 days would be a huge help.

  2. Thanks, I will make call tomorrow, I have a large dental bill that I was going to pay to meet my minimum spend for my ink preferred, but I can’t pay it because all dental offices are closed in Mass.

  3. I just finished my Chase Sapphire Preferred (personal) spending, but it’s still a good thing for Chase to do. Got the UR points within a day or so of spend posting.

    Also recently did the spend for the Barclays JetBlue card also. Completed spend and paid before first statement (including AF). Welcome bonus miles received on first statement.

    To do spends I partially relied on paying ahead on electricity, Sprint cellular, internet, DISH, Medicare Part D plan, etc. I’m three to four months ahead.
    I certainly can’t handle any new cards and associated required spends for a while. I only want to be so far ahead.

    • Makes sense and I think a lot of people are taking that route since it is tougher to spend while stuck at home.

  4. I’d like to just be able to get through to a representative! I’ve tried for days to get to the Citi retention desk. My AF has posted, I want to check on retention offers. Once I get thru the automated system it hangs up on me. Any suggestions?

    • Sorry I don’t have any tips on that. Only reps can do retention offers. I would maybe give it a week or two or try first thing in the morning or at the end of the day to see if that works better at all.
