[Update] Chase Automatically Extending Minimum Spend Period For Cards Opened January 1st – March 31st

Update 5/3/20: Dansdeals was told by Chase that those cards with 2 tiers of spend requirement will have the 2nd tier extended an additional 3 months as well. This applies to cards opened from 12/31/19 – 5/31/20. The 1st tier is only extended for 1/1/20 – 3/31/20, apparently, but the second tier will be extended from 12/31/19 –  5/31/20 which means you can still take advantage of that now. Second tier is only for 10/1/19-3/31/20

Update 4/15/20: This is now being communicated to cardholders directly. I also saw some confusion with people thinking this only applies to personal cards. I was able to confirm this extension also applies to business cards.

Original Post:

Yesterday we shared information that Chase would be automatically extending the minimum spend period for some cardholders by 3 months. Unfortunately Chase shared incorrect information, but the good news is that cardholders who opened a new card between January 1st and March 31st will have their minimum spend periods extended by an additional three months. Chase had first said that this extension was for people with minimum spend periods ending during this time frame.

This policy makes a lot more sense from Chase. I’ve also reached out to ask if members who have opened accounts since March 31st will receive any sort of extension. American Express is offering all card members a three month extension if they sign up between December 1, 2019 through May 31, 2020.

William Charles I didn’t see the original post of DansDeal but it looks like Chase reached out to clarify and Dan has updated the eligible approval dates in the post to be 3/31/2020. Therefore we actually cannot take advantage of this right now.

Jan 1 is a bummer for me — opened a Chase card Dec 26! I didn’t even get the card until early January — 1st purchase was Jan 8. Maybe I will call them up to see if they will extend for me. I am trying to complete 10K total spend for the United card (6 month deadline).

I opened the same card on the 18th of December. About a week ago I sent a secure message requesting an extension on the second tier of spend, they denied no reason given. Maybe it’s beyond those agents control? Let me know if you decide to call in.

Chase isn’t extending the minimum spend period for their tiered offers (SW personal cards). Confirmed via SM for 70k/5k/6 months offer on SW plus opened late February.

Capital one extending minimum spend DP:

Applied 12/08/19 for Spark “spend 50K within 6 months for 2K bonus”.
Called up yesterday (04/15) asked for an extension, She said she needs to fill out a request and I will get a callback. Today (04/16) they called and told me I have till 12/31/20 to spend the 50K (I’m currently at 32K) I asked for an email confirmation, she said unfortunately they can’t send a confirmation email but its noted on the account notes, after thanking her and hanging up, I called back and asked the regular CSR until when do I have to reach the 50K requirement, after a brief hold she said this account has until 12/31/20!
