My Results After Requesting an Offer Match from Chase
Chase recently released a new and improved offer for their Marriott Business card. With the new offer I would get 5,000 less points but the $99 annual fee is waived. Since 5,000 Marriott points are worth around $30 that is a great deal! Too bad I recently signed up for the Marriott Business card during my epic app-o-rama where I went 1 for 5.
No problem, I thought, Chase has been really good at matching offers in the past…or so I thought.
Since I like to work smarter, not harder (a life motto right there folks!) I decided to contact Chase via secure message. I have had luck in the past contacting them via SM for offer match requests.
They responded with in a few hours, which was faster than expected. I eagerly opened the message and was met with complete and utter failure.
Here is Chase’s response:
Timing may have been working against me here. I signed up for the card a little over a month ago and completed the $3,000 in minimum spend a week or two ago. The real kicker is I just earned my bonus when my statement closed last night :(.
I imagine the fact that my statement had just closed, issuing me the bonus Marriott points, worked against me. Although, Chase just may not be matching this offer at this point in time.
That is where you come in, my beautiful & amazing readers. I give you a call to arms…has anyone been able to get this offer matched after recently applying for the Marriott business card? Let me know in the comments section!
