Chase Sapphire Preferred Rewards Questions

I am just wondering, how long after you spend the $3000 do you get those 40,000 points?

 

Also, I saw a promo on the CSP website for 2 nights stay in mexico ina resort for 2 for 40,000. Is it a good deal?

I guess what I am tryingto find out is how to maximize on the rewards, towards a deal like this, make your own reservation and redeem the points, book thorugh chase, ultimate rewards website etc.

After I spent $3,000, I received my points immediately after my next statement printed. When you book via Ultimate Rewards, your points are worth more, I think 25% more versus using a different website. Use the link below to learn more about the Ultimate Rewards program.

Look for ways to spend that 3k that could allow you to sell w/e it is you buy at a profit or minimal loss.

 

or even buy gas cards at a discount, when you would have paid full price for future gas expenses, etc.

 

Oh the days of the us mint and milage card churn, right boys? Smiley Very Happy

Do you guys know how long before can get a credit line increase. Is it a hrad or a soft pull. How many of you have succeeded. Has any of you with initial CL of $6000 asked for an increase if so how much did it go upto. Did you use phone or online to make the request.

A CLI request will always result in a hard pull from Chase. They have given SP auto CLIs lately, but it looks like it was primarily for those who were using the card heavily and PIF. I got an auto CLI on my Chase United card after 3 months with a SP. While it wasn't the CSP, I'm 99% sure it's because I'd been using my united card much more heavily. If I used my CSP in the same way, that would have likely received an auto CLI too.
