I was part of the lucky people that applied for this card with the link went out last week. I applied on Monday 8/15 and I received a 30 days message. See Message below
I called 8/15- 30 days message
I called 8/16- 30 days message
I called 8/17- Approved without a SL
I called 8/18- Approved with a new SL
I have been waiting for all the documents to arrive to ensure that I will get the 100K bonus which I confirmed with Chase this afternoon 8/23.
The package finally arrived today, the card came activated the same way as the Ritz Carlton . I have to say that the Ritz is more heavy than the Sapphire Reserve.
This card will be the main one so far for all my travels for the rest of the year with the Prestige/ Amex Plat and Citi Executive Card.
I am still in shock to see that they approved me with all the new accounts that I have. This year only 7 new accounts ( 3 from PenFed, 1 from Amex Plat, 2 from Navy Federal and 5/3 Bank). I currently have 3 Chase cards now ( Ritz, United and CSR).
The APR is listed below 16.24% with current Fico Scores low 750's on EQ and EX. of course double pull from Chase like always.
The card arrived today with a very nice box with all the benefits- see below
and my new limits is below............... ... kudos to all - please do yourself a favor and go to the branch, you have nothing to lose if you don't try
Thank you Baller, you never told me if you are going to apply at the Branch?
Have more unboxing pictures? I assume this card is as heavy as CSP
I have all the boxes .... I don't have a CSP so I cannot compare, but I think it is.
