Chase Sapphire Preferred Refer A Friend


Chase Sapphire Preferred Refer A Friend

As I wrote last month, both my wife and I picked up Chase Sapphire Preferred cards in our latest round of credit card applications. I really do love the Sapphire Preferred card, although I am not sure about its long term value. (You can find out more in my detailed review.)

With that said, there is no doubt that the sign up bonus of 40,000 Ultimate Rewards + 5,000 for adding an authorized user is very attractive. This really is one of the best cards for the miles & points newbie because of the flexibility of the points.

The Referral Offer

Chase Sapphire Preferred Refer A Friend

Through May 31, 2015 current Chase Sapphire Preferred cardholders can refer up to 10 friends and earn 5,000 points per referral up to a total of 50,000 points. While you will earn 5,000 per referral, your friend will receive the normal public offer of 40,000 points after 4k in spend. No one loses.

Chase Sapphire Preferred Refer A Friend – How To

Here is how to use the Chase Sapphire Preferred Refer A Friend program:

1. Go to

Chase Sapphire Preferred Refer A Friend
The Chase Refer A Friend website.

2. Enter in your last name, zip code and the last four digits of your Chase Sapphire Preferred card number. If you are not eligible then you will see the following screen. If you are eligible to refer people then you will see the screen as shown below for number 3.

This message indicates you aren’t currently eligible to refer a friend for the card information that you entered.

3. You are now on the refer a friend referral screen.  Here you must enter in your friend’s first name, last name and email address.  Chase will send them the offer via email within 1 week.

4. Finally you will receive a confirmation that the emails will be sent.  You can also share the offer on Twitter or Facebook which is much quicker since you can send the links to your friends right away. To get the Chase Sapphire Preferred refer a friend referral link, just click to share on Twitter or Facebook and then copy and paste the link from there into an email to your friend.


If you don’t currently have the Sapphire Preferred, I highly suggest reading my review to find out why I think it has one of the best sign-up bonuses around. If you are a current cardholder, Chase is willing to pay you to help them gain business.

Here is my personal referral link in case anyone wants to apply, but any current cardholder should be able to refer you as well. Enjoy!


  1. If anybody needs a CSP link just message me your email and I’ll submit to chase. Thanks in advance for helping out.

  2. My question is this: I have a Chase Sapphire in my name and my husband is an authorized user, meaning he has an additional card with his name on it, but the account is in my name. Would I be able to refer him for the 10k bonus and have him open an account in his name, would he be eligible for the 50k bonus?

  3. Do you know if existing links (made a month ago) are still eligible for the bonus if I refer a family member who hasn’t signed up for the card yet? Their website isn’t recognizing any active friend referral offers at this time, why I ask.

  4. Good day,
    Do you have any idea what requirements must be met for a CSP cardholder to be eligible to earn the referral bonus? My husband’s card is NOT eligible (but it’s new, first statement cycle hasn’t closed yet).

    I got an email saying my Chase Freedom is eligible for a similar referral bonus after having the Chase Freedom for about 4 months
    (Link here if anyone wants to use it and help me out + collect $100 for spending 500 + $25 for adding an authorized user: )

    Thanks for any insight!

      • Thanks Shawn. You’re probably right. The message I get says:

        “The information you provided does not match any of our current Chase Refer-A-Friend promotions. Please check to make sure you entered your information correctly, and continue to check back to see if your card becomes eligible in the future.”

  5. I’m relocating from Australia to the US in early March as I’ve been offered a job in the SF Bay Area. Do you think I’d be eligible for the card through your referral?

  6. Hi I’m Carlos,
    I am visually impaired totally blind using a talking screen reader,
    I went to the chase site and found where I can enter the emails and first name but I can’t figure out where to find my link to post,
    I called chase cause I have a sapphire preferred and they told me I had to put in the emails and there was no link.
    I also would like to know what is this link that you post after you said chase can pay you for referals,
    it said here is my link.
    Thank you for any help.

      • Hi Shawn is it a long link,
        I think my screem reading software is not howing the links correctly.
        I read there was a link that said email

      • Hi Shawn,
        I’m Carlos the totally blind person who posted here about the link,
        I had sighted assistance in figuring out the link and was wondering,
        is it ok to post it here.
        I see other people posting and wanted to know if its ok.Thanks

  7. Seriously people? Have some decency, don’t spam his blog with your own personal referral links. He spends the time to create these posts and I can’t believe the audacity of trying to make a buck from his blog when he provides his own link for sign up. Really hope they get removed (in which case please remove my post as well).

    If I didn’t already have my Wife as a referral for myself, I’d of used his link. It’s the right thing to do.

        • I wasn’t meaning to be rude. It’s just that he’ll only get the bonus for the first 10 people clicking through it (Shawn, please correct me if I’m wrong.) so why not have someone else benefit from it?
          I believe with the amount of people reading his posts, he might have reached the maximum even before the first comment!!!

          • While I don’t believe I have reached the maximum, you didn’t do anything wrong. I generally allow other referral links unless you are paying something in return. (For example I blocked a comment on this post yesterday because someone offered to pay people via Paypal for using his link.)

            If a comment shows up here, then it generally means I have approved it. (Sometimes a few slip by.) Thanks Sara!

          • I should’ve toned down my response in the first place and I apologize for that. The fact you even responded shows you do care fwiw.

            It’s my belief and mine alone, but I feel that he should receive all monetary compensation for providing daily updates that directly benefits us as readers. He invests his time, energy and even money (even from just an opportunity cost perspective) into giving us convenient daily email updates. I feel we can do our part by using him as a referral source whenever possible.

            I used my wife’s referral link because I had the option. So I’m not suggesting you take money from your own pocket by using his referral link instead of your own. What I am suggesting is we not take his away by trying to re-route traffic to our own links for further referrals.

    • Anthony, I completely agree with you! While Shawn is being extremely gracious about this whole thing, I find it off-putting, to say the least. Blogging is a lot of work, and this is his business. He puts in countless hours into the posts to benefit readers. Kudos to the commenter who did apologize for it. Just to clarify: While he can only get 10 referrals through his personal link, he does make commission on CSP card if you use his affiliate link.

      • Leana, thanks for clarifying that part.
        Shawn, I do apologize again if it was inappropriate. I can’t fathom the amount of work that is involved in keeping this blog up-to-date and so informative. I really appreciate all that you do.
        Feel free to block my comment.

  8. Funny that you posted this. I had it on my to do list to attempt a refer a friend (for me) with the CSP card I had my wife get a little over a month ago. This was just my nudge to get it done a bit earlier lol. I was able to get the refer a friend link to work, thanks for the heads up!

    I agree with not being sure of it’s long term value. I do enjoy the fact that I can move all points into one account to be used more practically, which CSP facilitates. I read somewhere that people were letting the AF hit just before requesting it waived (or worst case cancelling the card and getting AF removed). Also read everywhere of people doing it before AF posts. I believe you even wrote a post on this before. It’s a bridge I’ll have to personally cross at least 6 months from now, but it’s food for thought.
