So my question is formatted similar to many discussions of people wondering if they qualify for CSR’s 100k point offer after taking advantage of CSP’s 50k point offer, but my situation is reversed. I skipped the CSP and now have a CSR. Unfortunately for the sake of instant gratification, I do not spend enough to utilize the $ 4,000 requirement for EACH card unless I just go on an unneccessary shopping spree, and that’s not going to happen. I know I’ve seen several people say that you cannot double dip like this, but I’ve seen others say it shouldn’t matter. I know at one point I couldn’t take 2 steps without bumping into these discussions, but now that I’m actively looking for them, they’ve gone Jimmy Hoffa on me. So I apologize for a worn out topic, even if my situation is reversed from the usual format.
In reading the terms of the promotion on my CSP, quoted below, I see no reason why I wouldn’t qualify for the 50k points unless they consider “this card” an umbrella term for the Sapphire family to include both the Reserve and the Preferred.
50,000 Bonus Points after you spend $ 4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account open date
This product is not available to either (i) current cardmembers of this credit card, or (ii) previous cardmembers of this credit card who received a new cardmember bonus for this credit card within the last 24 months. You will receive 50,000 bonus points with this bonus offer. To qualify and receive your bonus, you must make Purchases totaling $ 4,000 or more during the first 3 months from account opening. (“Purchases” do not include balance transfers, cash advances, cash-like charges such as travelers checks, foreign currency, and money orders, any checks that access your account, overdraft advances, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, or fees of any kind, including an annual fee, if applicable.) After qualifying, please allow 6 to 8 weeks for bonus points to post to your account. To be eligible for this bonus offer, account must be open and not in default at the time of fulfillment.
I’ve only had CSR for a couple of weeks and as of right now the CSP shows up under my pre-qualified offer screen (which I understand is still no guarantee of approval), but my plan is to take advantage of the CSR promo and then in 2 1/2-3 months apply for the CSP to take advantage of that offer. I’ve never had a CSP at any time. The CSR is my first taste of the Chase Sapphire lineup.
Do you think I’d qualify? Thanks in advance for your time taken out to read this and any wisdom you can provide.
