Chase Sapphire Preferred 75,000 Bonus In-Branch [YMMV]

Getting matched seems to no longer work unless your CPC.

The Offer

Twitter user @spencerformiles got an interesting offer at a Chase branch:

  • Singup for the Chase Sapphire Preferred and get 70,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 within three months
  • Get an additional 5,000 bonus points when you add an authorized user and make a purchase within three months

csp 70 branch offer

Our Verdict

The same 75k offer was circulating back in November to some people, though this one appears to be a separate rollout. In any case, it’s probably targeted to select branches and/or select customers, but can’t hurt to ask if you’re nearby. It might also be targeted specifically to Private Clients.

The bigger hurdle is getting past 5/24 as these in-branch offers are probably subject to 5/24 unless you got a special pre-approval. Matching this offer seems to work as long as you applied in branch for your card. Because of this we’ve added it to our list of the best credit card bonuses.

Wait, did something change? I thought in branch pre-approvals bypassed 5/24? No?

Just applied in branch yesterday and the banker has zero idea about any offer that is higher than 50k. Now I am just wondering if it is possible to match the offer through SM.

William Charles

Try it and let us know

This is the CPC offer

Doesn’t say anything about being a CPC-only offer in the photo and non-CPCs have reported DPs of getting matched to it.

how exactly do you get matched? I went in and applied for this card the other day after requesting a match to 75k in person and got a hard no at 2 different branches. Can you request a match via Chase’s messaging system after applying?

I just got this card 2 weeks ago, but for the 50k offer. Is it possible to be matched to this offer? If so, is that something I should try to do online or over the phone?

Michael
Michael

You can’t match to it. It’s only available in-branch to those with CPC

Brandon Ruiz

Ok thanks for clarification

William Charles

Not correct, at least last time it was offered people that weren’t CPC applied directly and lots of people that were non CPC got matched.

Brandon

So I’m not CPC and called customer service and after 20 minutes on the phone they told me that this was a branch only offer, and they couldn’t match me to it. I went to the branch and the same rep that helped me previously offered to call in to request match, but he wasn’t even aware of this offer. When he called in he was told it was a CPC offer and I couldn’t be matched to it.

Should I try to call customer service again? I’m guessing it just depends who you talk to.

William Charles

Did you originally apply in branch?

I don’t think it’d hurt to call or SM in. The worst they can say is no. I just applied for this card myself and am going to try once I physically have the card in my possession.

It is! I got the offer matched after I saw this post. I just called the number on the back of my CSP. I got CSP on January online.

William Charles

Thanks for the DP.

I tried by calling and did not work out. I opened for 50k in Jan too by applying online (am not a CPC) and have already gotten the 50k after meeting spending requirement.

Is there a proof i can send to get matched to 70k?

Brandon
Brandon

Did you apply in branch or online? Are you CPC? I just tried in branch and over the phone and neither would match me to this offer.

A few days ago both my wife and I had no pre-approved offers, but today I called my banker and both of us have a mix of FU, CSP, Slate (no bonus), and UA Club card (no bonus). I’ll probably go into the branch for the CSP since I haven’t had it since 2014. She checked Biz offers and nothing for me unfortunately. My Ink Plus AF just posted today.

DP: successfully match sign up bonus to 70k by calling the number on the back of my CSP on Tuesday! I got my CSP online in January. Have reached 4k spending last month. The customer service said to put a note in my account for marketing team. 20k UR points credit to my account 2 days later.

William Charles

Awesome news.

Same situation as you, but no dice on the match. SM response:

“Let me share that the offer to earn 70,000 bonus points is available only to Chase Private Clients and the applications done through Retail branch. Hence, we are unable to match the offer on your account. We know this is not the answer you hoped for, and we’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.”

Ken

So if you’d opened your CSP in branch they’d have matched to 70k?

Ken
Ken

Crap, I meant 75k. I have a pre-qual for the CSP and I’m way over 5/24. But my car is dead, and I have no way to get to the branch that’s almost 40mins away during business hours.

Went into Chase today to sign up for CPC, and the banker told me that there’s a new offer for CPC customers that want to sign up for the Sapphire Preferred – 70k. Specifically mentioned as a CPC benefit.

William Charles

Thanks for info

Div

Is it possible to get matched with this offer without being CPC?

William Charles

Yes, as long as you had applied in branch.

Div

Thanks Charles for the response. What if I apply for CSP in branch with 50K and later on ask to get matched with this offer?
Last weekend I went to Chase branch to see if I am pre-approved for this offer, but no luck for me! I had only 50K regular bonus offer.

William Charles

Should work, but no guarantee.

I just got approved for CSP in branch for 50K offer. I am not a CPC, but have a meeting scheduled later in the week with a Chase to evaluate it for 100K for 1 year.

When should I ask for 75K match – after meeting the spending requirements or before that?

Ken
Ken

I’d send a SM now, then if they deny it you can have your CPC go to bat for you if you join CPC.

William Charles

+1

Thanks @Ken and William Charles.

My request through SM was declined. Will try again if and when I become CPC.

Meanwhile, another DP for you – my wife went to the branch today and was instantly approved for the 70k+5k offer. She is not a CPC, currently 4/24 and 800+ score. The banker said that she was being offered this offer b/c she has been a loyal chase customer (???).

Goes without saying, I am jealous 😛

Bob

Try for match after meeting spend, right? Not right after approval?

Ken
Ken

In the past when I have requested a match before spend was complete they asked me to reply to the message once spend was complete and they’d add the points. I don’t know if this still works.

William Charles

Don’t think it matters.

Bob
Bob

Denied via SM with explanation of CPC only offer 🙁 I did apply in-branch. Time to try over the phone at some point I guess

Vince

Applied in branch sometime last week. Application went to pending and approved as of today.

Got denied via SM for the 70k offer match.

“We reviewed the offer to receive 70,000 bonus points and
determined your account doesn’t qualify for the offer.
Promotional offers are only available for select products
and not transferable between accounts.”

What are my options now? Should I try calling or go in person?

CGID

I got the same response from a customer service rep just now. He seemed unaware of even the concept of “matching” — he was friendly but kept saying that the promotional bonus one gets from Chase is always and solely dependent on what promotion was attached to it at the moment of application.

Should I go back into the branch where I opened it?

I have never requested a “match” before so this is a new experience for me.

Bob
Bob

Branch will almost definitely be denied b/c the bankers there will know this is a CPC only offer. We’ve been exploiting the fact that some reps don’t know it’s CPC only over the phone.

Had a great day at Chase last week. New checking account and was pre-approved for the CSP, approved for that. Went 0-3 trying this match, first with card services number by phone, then secure messaging chase.com, and finally with my banker at the branch. Phone and SM said it was for private clients only.

Ken
Ken

Wasn’t there​ a 70k offer that we can try matching to?

Bob

This is it, what’s described in the article is the offer. 70k bonus + 5k AU

William Charles

This is that offer

Ken
Ken

Thanks guys. Has anyone been successful in getting the match? I opened mine at a branch.

The 70K is for CPC client. 6 months ago, I was pre- approved for the CSR and CSP. I chose the CSR of course. The CSP pre approval disappeard. I went back to the branch to check again 5 months 25 days later, nothing. I went back April 1st (the beginning of the 7th month), got a pre approval for the CSP, 70k, and FU for 300.00 (CPC promo vs the 150.00 public). Instant approval for the CSP, and the FU disappeared.

FYI: I was like 10/24.

Emil

DP – I was approved in-branch for the 50k offer on 2/15 with a preapproval overriding 5/24. Called today to match and the rep denied it saying the 70k offer is only for CPC. I also sent a SM today and got a response saying that offer is not available for my account. Oh well.
