Chase Sapphire Preferred 100,000 Bonus Point Offer (Targeted)

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!

ChaseI 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.

Hat Tip: Million Mile Secrets.  A new, but great blog you should check out!

    Hi Craig!
    We used your link and got approved for the BA chase card last month. Do you think we can try for this one too?
    Thanks,
    Diana

    Hi Craig,
    It seems that some people get targeted for credit card offers while others don’t. I don’t. I have checked any boxes on my credit card websites to receive emails with offers etc.

    Is there anything else I can do so I will get targeted offers? Are big spenders more likely to be targeted? If so, could you please define “big spender”? My credit score isn’t great but it’s definitely good and I have no problem getting approved for cards.

    Thanks for all the great information!
    Carol

      Carol,

      Don’t feel bad haven’t got a target offer yet either :). I have no idea what criteria they are using on who to target. However, I do know that a lot of people applied under the 50,000 link and were then able to get an extra K50. Some, however, did not receive the extra K50 points. This tread (http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/milesbuzz/1215268-chase-sapphire-preferred-card-50k-100k-points-37.html) shows you what type of success people are having.

      If you want to risk it you can apply for the K50 offer and then send in a request to match it with the K50 bonus. I don’t know if it will work or not. However, I do think the more requests they have to match the K50 the quicker someone in management is going to shut it down and tell people who weren’t targeted that they won’t get the points. Just my thoughts.

      I hope this helps.

    “However, I do think the more requests they have to match the K50 the quicker someone in management is going to shut it down and tell people who weren’t targeted that they won’t get the points.”
    I believe this is what is happening, Craig. I sent the SM (three times, by accident!) and received two different responses within an hour. I was given two different responses and wasn’t successful in receiving the extra 50K.
    The first stated: “If you were sent an invitation for this offer, I kindly
    request you to reply to this email with the offer code and
    the invitation number.” The second: “Please note that the offer was an acquisition test offer only and was sent to a select
    customers through direct mail.” Those of us not targeted need to be content with the 50K, I suppose!
