Chase Sapphire Reserve 80,000 Point Offer

Update: Reminder that this offer ends on November 30th at 6PM EST.

There is some good news in the credit card world today, there is a new Chase Sapphire Reserve 80,000 point offer. This is the highest it has been since the 100,000 point offer at launch, one we haven’t seen in half a decade. The standard offer on the card has hovered in the 50,000 – 60,000 point range with a 70,000 point offer floating around sometimes too. That is a nice premium on the card and if you have been waiting on an increased offer then now is the time (assuming you are eligible).

Note: the links in this article are our referral links. If you wish to apply for the card and would like to support the site, podcast and YouTube channel you can use the links in the article. Thanks in advance for supporting free content if you choose to use them.

Chase has a one per family rule to coincide with their difficult 5/24 rule.  Here are the details on the bonus restrictions for the Chase Sapphire Reserve (most will be disqualified):

  • If you have been approved for 5, or more, new lines of credit in the last 24 months then you will be automatically denied for this card. This includes new credit cards from any bank, as well as, personal loans etc. Here is a list of cards that do not count towards Chase 5/24.

Chase Sapphire Reserve 80,000 Point Offer: Final Thoughts

This is a nice bump in the welcome offer. It looks to be available via personal referrals too if you have a two player system. I will have to dig through the Sapphire Reserve offer and the current Chase Sapphire Preferred offer and see if this changes things on which is better for most people in the first year. Stay tuned for that update!
