[FINAL WEEK TO GET IN] 80,000 Point Offer For Chase Sapphire Preferred

Terms apply to the offers and benefits listed on this page.


Chase has increased the initial offer for the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card to 80,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. This is clearly one of the best card deals out there right now. The offer at this link will be removed by the end of the day on 6/1/2022.

There was once a higher public offer, it was during the pandemic, and we haven’t seen it since. This is one of the biggest ever offers for the card there has been. And most readers can do $4000 spend within 3 months on a card ($1,333.33 per month) even without prepaying bills and the like.

  • Earning: Double points on travel and triple on dining at restaurants

  • Transfer points to airlines and hotels: points transfer to United, Hyatt, Air Canada, Southwest, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Singapore Airlines, Air France KLM, JetBlue, Aer Lingus, Iberia, Emirates, Marriott, IHG Rewards Club.

  • Or use them for statement credits: The new Pay Yourself Back tool lets you redeem points at 1.25 cents apiece in value against eligible card charges in rotating categories (or against paid travel booked through Chase’s portal at 1.25 cents apiece).

That’s on top of standard benefits like no foreign transaction fees and primary car rental collision, trip cancellation/interruption, lost luggage coverage and more. And your Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card can be a ‘Chase Hub’.

If you have a Sapphire Preferred then consider also a no annual fee Chase Freedom Unlimited® which earns at least 1.5x on everything. While that card’s points do not transfer directly to airline or hotel programs, you can combine them into a Sapphire Preferred account, and from there to participating airline or hotel loyalty programs. This way you’ll never have to earn less than 1.5 points per dollar on spending again.

You’re not not eligible for this $95 annual fee card’s bonus if you’ve gotten a bonus for this card or for the Chase Sapphire Reserve card in the past 48 months, and Chase’s 5/24 applies which means to be approved you generally need to have opened fewer than 5 new card accounts in the past 24 months.

  1. I opened this card late Feb for the standard bonus (60k). I’m hearing Chase isn’t matching offers anymore. Has anyone had that experience?

  2. So I just got this card 2 months ago. Is there anyway to still qualify for the extra 20k in free points? Would it be worth calling customer service and asking them about it? Any advice on it?

  3. I got this card Sept 2020 under the 60k promotion and *while it was in the mail!* to me they did an 80k boost..I called immediately and tried to get the extra points. The rep was very nice but she said there was no way it could be adjusted after you apply.

  4. I just applied and got turned down. No reason given. My income is over $300K a year and a high credit score.

  5. I have CSR and Chase Freedom Unlimited, with ~500k UR points associated with the CSR. I’m a little tired of paying for the CSR (I also have AmEx Platinum and holding both is increasingly dumb). Is the following possible:
    –Consolidate all UR points under the Freedom Unlimited card
    –Close CSR
    –Apply for Preferred, hit spend, get 80k UR points
    –Consolidate points under Preferred

    I am 5+ years out from any Chase bonuses and clear of any 5/24 considerations. This seems like an easy call from my perspective but also an obvious situation that Chase might not like. Thoughts?

  6. @Mak – yes, I believe it is in branch only

    @Tom – yes, that works. Wait at least 30 days between closing and applying.

  7. Any folks with sources have an idea when the in branch no AF offer will end?

    I recall the last time around, the in person offer continued on for over a month…

  8. @Tom & @Sean, everywhere I’ve seen says wait 4 days between, closing/downgrading before applying.
