I’ve shared in the past how the Chase Sapphire Preferred card is one of our favorite travel reward cards. We like it because it let us bulk on points that could be converted to Star Alliance member United’s airline miles. This benefit alone allowed me to transfer points instantly and take advantage of the Singapore Airlines First Class booking frenzy.
We like the card not only because of the generous earning on travel related products, or the great way to transfer Chase Freedom cash back into Ultimate Reward points, but also because it has or had one of the larger sign up bonuses.
Earlier this year the offer was in the 50,000 range. I was notified to remove my links and then the offer went down to 40,000 Ultimate Reward points. We shared the news and how we thought the sky wasn’t falling but that the offer was going down.
New Notification On Chase Sapphire Preferred Offer
I have been directed to remove my Chase Sapphire Preferred affiliate links by 10 AM on Monday, 8/20/2012. Now I can’t confirm what will happen after that, but I thought it was interesting enough to pass along for those folks who may have been holding out on getting the card. The 40,000 Ultimate Rewards offer for the Chase Sapphire Preferred is a sure way to bulk up on Star Alliance carrier program miles quickly.
If you are risk averse or have been planning to pick up a Chase Sapphire Preferred card, the 40,000 UR point offer would sure look attractive to me at this point.
