Chase Considering Card Redesign On Sapphire Reserve

Chase has sent out a survey looking for feedback on a potential card redesign for the Chase Sapphire Reserve and asking users to compare it to American Express Platinum card and Capital One Savor card.

Earlier this year there was a rumor that a dining credit would be added to the Sapphire Reserve. Somewhat interesting given that in this survey they were asking users to compare the card design to the Capital One savor and that’s typically not thought of as a premium card, but does have good dining earn rates.

I dont care what the card looks like. I do care what the reward structure is.

But it does look terrible.

+1… especially a concern with other cards removing benefits (like Citi and Barclay). CSR and CSP are the only cards now with decent travel protection benefits. If you ask me – do not touch it, do not change it… leave it alone and forget about 🙂 When they change something they tend to change other things too 🙁

I read the tile and clicked thinking they’re actually making changes to the card.

Card can literally have a poop imoji, hell it could be shaped like the poop emoji and I wouldn’t care, as long as it did the do, you dig?!?

My Samsung Pay could care less what my cards look like!

All much uglier than the current design, especially the back side…

I got the same survey for ink redesign. Same concept though.

Don’t like any of them more than the current design…

But it’ll be interesting to see what else changes if they change the physical design.

Most are “upside-down” (magstripe on the bottom, chip in the lower-right corner), which the Savor did during its plastic incarnation…I wonder if this will get annoying if Chase moves to this (I’d guess that there’s more Sapphires out there than the 2017-2018 Savor run).

who cares for design? They need to come back with 150K bonus like i got on the Amex Bz Platinum recently

150k bonus on amex biz, how? I thought 100k was max.

Someone from Amex called me and offered the 150K bonus. Guess it was A YMMV offer?

Targeted 150K offers exist. More often you get better offers if you are new to Amex. It is a tiered bonus as well, and a couple of years ago I had one via snail mail. It was 100K for $10K spend, and extra 50K for another $10K spend (all in 3 months)

2nd or 4th.

I think it’s cool that the chip is “Chase” shaped. Otherwise, so nice to see Chase is doing priorities, designing new cards instead of investing in other things 😉

All designs have standard looking chips, if you see the Chase logo in there, that’s only by accident.

Eric S

I think there is an intentional Chase logo on the chip, despite the contacts being in their common spots – too coincidental that it’s the exact thing. PayPal did it for some of their cards, too.

Yup, the difference is that PayPal simply etched their logo at the center of the chip without affecting the contacts, while Chase clearly played with the contacts to draw their logo. Very cool.

No, Lrdxgm, there definitely is a Chase logo in the chip of the all but the first.

Changing their large chip to the industry standard ?

Imagine they ask us to compare on 5 different sign up bonuses 😊

Savor card is now metal, and it feels better than the CSR

They feel the same in Apple Pay. Although I guess u can’t impress the waiter or clerk as much. 🙄

The only one I care about being impressed or happy with a card is myself 😉

I want free Authorized user for Reserve with no Global entry, just like Preferred.

Not going to happen. AU on CSR get their own Priority Pass (with 2 guests etc..), so $75 is barely covers that. One visit for 2 people would probably pay for that.

Eric

Chase has never charged me an AU fee on my CSR for some reason, but she has also never used the PP membership. It’s useless to her.

I have only been able to use mine once in a few years due to the constant reduction in hours and limitations. There are just too many PP cards out there now. I’d gladly trade it for a reduction in my annual fee.

So the person who wrote the survey isn’t a native English speaker. Shocked?

It’s like when the CNBC anchors start a sentence with the word “meantime.” It doesn’t matter what they say after that, I know there was an Indian writing the script behind the scenes.

How about redesign that hideous 5/24

Yes, I am fully in support of it being changed to 24/5!
