Savor sub changed- when?

I couldn't find through search here about Cap1 changing the sub.  I squeaked in for the $500 but I believe it changed sometime around mid-April?  Anyone aware or is this old news now?

Re: Savor sub changed- when?

I noticed it yesterday. Had a friend interested in the Savor. Looks like $300 after $3000 spend. The $500 is gone. And I cant find what network the card will be. MC/Visa Sig/WEMC. Says: "Some of the above benefits are provided by Visa® or Mastercard® and may vary by product. See your respective Guide to Benefits for details, as terms and exclusions apply." So its a toss up now on that too I guess. Savor one network, Savor1 another? Smiley Tongue

@FiresOut 

Yeah, I was telling my friend how surprised I was to log on to pay my bill and I had $500.  She wanted to correct me on that.

I am sad that I didn’t PC when Savor first came out, to get what turned out to be a no-AF 4% card, but glad I snagged the $500 offer earlier.

Re: Savor sub changed- when?

Someone mentioned the SUB change here a few weeks ago. I don't recall the circumstances that caused it to come up.

 

The other thing that's changed is that the card now has a 2k minimum credit limit vs. the previous 5k.

It was my first card from Cap 1 so I couldn't have PCed...but with no plan to close CSR, the additional cash back from the increased SUB was more than I would have likely earned in the grandfathered card's lifetime.

 

I don't think it changed all at once. When I applied in Feb it was $500 everywhere. Then around April/May it was $300 or $500 depending on the person and browser. Some referrals links stayed at $500 for a few weeks.

Mostly earning MRs and cash back as I use up hotel and airline points spread across several programs.
