Now live. Chase announced today two enhancements to the Sapphire card lineup:
- The Sapphire Reserve and Preferred cards will earn a bonus multiplier at grocery stores on up to $1,000 per month. This benefit begins on November 1, 2020 and ends on April 30, 2021. Multiplier will be as follows:
- 3x with Sapphire Reserve
- 2x with Sapphire Preferred
- The $300 travel credit will be able to be received from gas and grocery purchases through June 30, 2021 (in addition to travel purchases being an option as well).
- This was previously announced through December 31, 2020, and they’ve now extended it through June 2021.
Both of these are nice enhancements for the Sapphire Reserve card: aside from the 3x grocery earn being a nice category, it also stacks well with PayYourselfBack, and allows getting a bonus earn on the purchase you’re doing for PYB. Still not as good as the 5x grocery earlier this year.
The $300 travel credit enhancements are also terrific, and will be useful for more people due to the extension. I assume a lot of people will be able to use up two of their $300 travel credits on gas/grocery now. (People were asking about whether it’ll be possible to use the gas/grocery twice. I don’t see any reason not, and I assume that will work. With this extension, there should more people in the group who will be using it a second time.)
