Credit Card Offers

Other Chase In Branch Offers: Chase Freedom 30k, Chase Sapphire Reserve & Preferred 60k [Highly YMMV]

Yesterday we posted about an in branch offer of 30,000 points after $500 in spend on the Chase Freedom Unlimited. The offer is only available in branch and only to some selected customers. I have no idea how they decide who is targeted, I think having Chase Private Client status helps but people without it have also reported being targeted. Reader Michael also reported being offered the following:

  • Chase Freedom: 30,000 points
  • Chase Sapphire Preferred: 60,000 points
  • Chase Sapphire Reserve: 60,000 points

Keep in mind if you’re pre-approved in branch that this will by pass the 5/24 rule. Last time they had a similar offer it was 70,000 points for the Chase Sapphire Preferred so I’m actually a little surprised to see the bonus has been reduced. I don’t think making a special visit is worth it as most people won’t be eligible, but if you live near a branch or are going in for the $300 checking & $200 savings bonus it’s always a good idea to check for offers.

I don’t know when these came in to play, but I applied for a Chase checking last week and was told by the bank representative in-branch that I was pre-approved for CSP/CSR @ 50k.

That’s how I got my CSR, last year, after failing online.

I’m assuming while this bypasses 5/24 it does not bypass the one Sapphire product and 1 bonus / 24 months (Preferred/Reserve)? If I’m wrong that would be amazing….

Is it possible to be pre-approved for the CSP if you already have the CSR?

Just to refresh my memory… I believe you general consensus is that you will likely start to receive in-branch offers again once 6 months has passed since your most recently opened Chase card. Does anyone know if the offers generally start to appear exactly at the 6th month mark, or if it’s best to wait until the first of the month AFTER your 6 month mark has passed? I vaguely remember reading somewhere that Chase resets offers at the beginning of each month, so it might be better to wait… has this been established with any level certainty or was that just pure conjecture?

Please forgive my grammar, I’m still working on my first cup of coffee this morning.

I got an in-branch offer for the CSP last month after getting the SW Premier in April so YMMV regarding what you heard.

Cool, thanks for the DP.

This is a good reminder to go back in branch to check for offers.

Damn , I got approved for 50k just last week. Haven’t even received my card yet…

Secure Message Chase! Most of the times they’ve matched a higher offer if you ask!

how does one SECURE MESSAGE CHASE? what does it even mean? like send a message via ur chase bank account portal? and you just asked to be matched? i just got approved for the chase sapphire reserve,nov 28 2017, waiting for the card to arrive via mail…but was only offered the 50k points…i am interested in getting the 60k points this group talks about. Please advise on how to do so…

Yes, just like you said. You login to your Chase account, and you click the link for “Secure Messages”. That’s literally all there is too it, I’m confused by your confusion…

If I open a pre approved card in branch, the 5/24 rule is bypassed for that card. But does it count for the next Chase card?

I know you can only hold one sapphire card, but saw DPs that you can open the CSR and CSP same day and get it approved.

Any recent DPs of that and would it work with inbranch signup?

I was approved for the Sapphire Reserve while already having the Sapphire Preferred. Has the policy changed?

Data point: I’m way beyond 5/24 and check online weekly for Chase offers, where I never see anything. I maintain 15k in a Chase savings account hoping to get a decent in-branch offer. I’m not a CPC. Last week I was pre-approved for a Freedom Unlimited (15k bonus). Since I haven’t received my card but I will call to see if they will match the targeted 30k bonus offer.

Does anyone know when this is expected to expire?

The CSP 70k back in April was only for CPC customers only. I think the 30k CFU is probably CPC client only also.

I will probably visit a branch today to see if I am pre approved for the 30k CFU. Then I plan to apply for the bofa Alaska card and Premium card. and Amex Delta Gold all do today so that they do not see all the inquires 😀

When I was in branch about 6 months ago, the CFU 30k offer was available to me even though I am not CPC (I did have $15k in Chase Savings at the time though). So even if you are not CPC, don’t give up hope on getting these offers!

Same here. Got 30,000 in branch offer even if not CPC about 6 months ago.

If I apply for a Chase card in branch, the 5/24 rule is bypassed. But does it count on my next Chase card application?

Only if you’re pre-approved are you going to bypass the 5/24 rule.

And then, of course yes, it will count as a new account once it hits your credit report. The delay until a newly opened credit card hit’s your report varies quite a bit.

Would signing up for the $300 bonus Chase checking account increase ones odds to get any of these offers? I already have 3 cards with Chase and am well over 5/24.

Not gonna waste my time chasing these Chase jokers. 🙂

If anyone has a picture of the offers please share it! Asked to be matched and they said if I can provide a photo/copy of the offer they’ll. Thanks!

Any success with getting the offer matched ?
