2 Chase Sapphire Reserve Accounts?

Has anyone tried applying for 2 CSR accounts (for the purpose of acquiring two instances of their 100K offer)? With intentions of consolidating credit lines after spending $4K in 3 months and receiving the 100K offer.

Chase Sapphire Reserve $14K | Capital One Venture $30K

Driftless is correct ...only one 

 

But my question is thgo:

Why would you want 2 CSR's and only spend for one bonus and then consolidate CL's .....Huh

I could see spending 8k for 200k points but not two apps for same card and benefits and one bonus 

Lol

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

I think OP meant what what you could see, two bonuses: then consolidating the CLS.    But ... "This product is available to you if you don’t have this card and have not received a new cardmember bonus for this card in the past 24 months"

I could see a Husband and Wife app for the two cards and after a year PC one to Freedom or FU.  If I remember correctly, you can transfer UR points to a spouse, nice to have 200k in the bank for at worst case $3,000 of travel.  The net cost before the next AF due would be $0 (900AF - 600 1st travel credit then one 300 second travel before PC.), keeping one CSR open.

Lol I was completely lost as to what OP wanted to do which puzzled me 

Yeah yeah I know won't see that happen often Lol

Re: 2 Chase Sapphire Reserve Accounts?

Should have clarified a bit :-)

 

I've had my CSR for a few months now and acquired my 100K points a while back and am currently using it as my primary card.

 

My question was whether I can open a second one and spend $4K to acquire another 100K points, after which I intended on consolidating both CLs.
