Chase Sapphire Preferred 80K Offer Available in Branch
Chase is once again offering an improved welcome bonus for the Sapphire Preferred credit card. This is the same 80,000 Ultimate Rewards points bonus that we saw last year. It comes with a $4,000 spending requirement and waived annual fee for the first year. There are reports on reddit that the offer is showing up in branches again. However, it’s not available in all branches. Let’s take a look at the details.
Update 3/17/22: My friend Erin H. let me know that only certain Chase branches have the offer. I am not sure why but I guess the other locations just have the waived annual fee and the 60K points public offer. Hopefully if you were interested in this offer you can find a branch with the 80K offer and waived annual fee.
- Earn 80,000 Bonus Points after you spend $4,000 on purchases with your new Sapphire Preferred card within the first 3 months of account opening.
- $95 Annual Fee (waived for first year)
- $50 hotel credit every cardmember year (must book through Chase Travel)
- The earning structure for the card:
- 5X on Chase Travel
- 3X on dining, select streaming and online grocery (excludes Target, Walmart & wholesale clubs)
- 2X on travel
- 1X on everything else
- Get a 10% back in points anniversary bonus as well.
This 80,000 points offer is far superior to the current bonus that is available online. You get an extra 20,000 points, and the annual fee is waived the first year. That’s over $300 in value when comparing this in-branch offer to the 60K online bonus.
This in-branch offer was reported on reddit, but it doesn’t seem to be available in all branches. I checked two branches nearby, and they only offered 60,000 points with the annual fee waived the first year. That still beats the online offer at least. Let us know if you find the 80K bonus at your Chase branches.
The Sapphire Preferred credit card was also updated recently with better earning and a $50 annual hotel credit. Mark makes the case for why this card is now a better option than the Chase Sapphire Reserve, and if you need some ideas on how to use the points, Ryan has you covered.
