Update 6/25/11 – Flyer Talk makes it clear that the ability to bump the bonus is officially dead. The only way to get the total K100 is to be targeted. But, don’t cry – 50,000 is still an amazing offer!
I was quite happy to see the Chase Sapphire Preferred 50,000 bonus offer. Unfortunately, I’ve had too many Chase applications lately so I wasn’t able to take advantage of the offer.
Today there’s a thread posted on Fat wallet that someone received a 100,000 targeted offer to sign up for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card. Now we all know that Chase wouldn’t go to all the effort to print up those beautiful promotional offers and only send out one. This card would offer you $1,250 worth of travel or the ability to transfer 100,000 miles to several award programs.
There’s more in the mail.
The individual who received the promotional offer doesn’t have a Chase card, and he is a high spender. If you read this blog and don’t yet have a Chase card, my only question is: why are you reading this blog and not taking advantage of the fantastic offers?
The promotional offer code is S6V.
If you haven’t applied for the 50,000 bonus point offer I’d suggest that you wait it out for a few weeks – just in case you are targeted.
The obvious tension is that, if you don’t apply, Chase may at some point take away the 50,000 point offer and revert back to 25,000 points. That would be bad news for you. On the other hand, if you do apply and then Chase sends you a 100,000 offer, that would be bad news for you (possibly).
If you recently applied for the 50,000 bonus point offer, you can sign into your account online and send a direct message or call customer service. Let them know that you recently applied for the card with a 50,000 point bonus and you’ve seen there is a new 100,000 point offer (mention offer code S6V).
Update: Million Mile Secrets is reporting several individuals who got the extra 50,000 bonus miles so you need to send a secure message if you’ve already applied!
Even if they don’t honor the 100,000 offer, don’t get too worked up. 50,000 is a very generous signup promotion, and the 100,000 is, after all, targeted.
