I do a bunch of surveys online for extra points. One of them recently asked about my use of my Chase Sapphire Preferred® card that now EARNS 40,000 bonus points when you spend $3000 in 3 months from opening a new card. But as you can see from the survey screen above, they apparently are thinking about lowering the bonus to 30,000 points for new cards.
This is a great card that I always have in my wallet to pay for dining as they pay 2x on dining out! On the plus side of this survey, I love the idea they seem to be considering about paying 3x points for dining even if ONLY one day of the month. I can tell you I would plan to eat out that day each month or even get gift cards to where I like to dine so I can return later in the month and have locked in my 3x points already!
Either way, if you don’t have this card yet, and are waiting for a larger bonus, you may find a smaller one soon. – René
EDIT: Reader JON says:
“I just walked into my local Chase branch to do some maintenance, and was told I had a special offer for Sapphire Preferred. 70,000 POINTS and only $2000 SPEND in 90 days. Safe to say, I jumped all over that offer.”
So it may be worth a trip to your local Chase branch and ASK if there is a 70,000 point Sapphire offer you could get! – WOW!
EDIT2: I have found out commenter JON, works for CHASE (from his IP address), so this offer may not be open to us all! Should have checked IP before posting comment. Sorry everyone. I may have been played. But I will leave the post as is.
EDIT3: It is 02FEB Sat & I have been in my local branch today & talked for quite some time to a PVT banker. She called 2 different supervisors and none had ever heard of this 70,000 offer. So, either this is targeted OR this is only for those who WORK for Chase.
