[Rumor] Chase Sapphire Preferred Signup Bonus will Soon Change to 60,000 with $95 Fee (instead of 50,000 with fee waiver)
We wrote about a rumor coming from multiple sources of an impending change to the Chase Freedom Unlimited signup offer. Instead of the current $150 signup bonus, the new bonus will be 3x everywhere during the first year. Reader Jeff chimed in that his wife works for Chase and confirmed the rumor, but indicated there’d be a $20,000 limit on that first-year earning offer.
Reader Jeff added further that the Chase Sapphire Preferred card will soon revert its signup bonus from 50,000 points to 60,000 points. The new 60k offer will not waive the $95 annual fee whereas the current 50k offer does waive that.
It’s not a major difference, but I think most readers would prefer the extra 10,000 Ultimate Rewards points along with the $95 annual fee, so this is your headsup that the bonus will likely be changing soon.
These changes are slated to come before the end of March. Just remember, as always, most of us are not eligible for Chase credit cards due to the 5/24 rule.
