You Can Now Earn Points For Chase Sapphire Reserve Referrals

In the interest of full disclosure, One Mile At A Time earns a referral bonus for anyone that’s approved through some of the below links. These are the best publicly available offers that we have found for each card. Please check out our advertiser policy for further details about the partners we work with. Thanks for your support!

The  Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card was introduced just over a year ago, and quickly become one of the most popular cards in the market. The card has a $450 annual fee, though offers a $300 annual travel credit, triple points on dining and travel, and much more. With the card having been introduced just over a year ago, I suspect Chase is closely examining what people do with the card after the first year, once the second annual fee is due. For most people I think keeping the card is a no brainer, while others may prefer to downgrade it to the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, Chase Freedom® Card, or Chase Freedom Unlimited®.

The card was a massive investment (especially as the card used to offer a 100,000 point sign-up bonus, which was enough for $1,500 worth of travel), and short term cost Chase hundreds of millions of dollars, so I guess this is the time when they start to see if the card paid off.

Chase has a refer-a-friend program, where you can refer friends to select Chase cards that you have. The catch is that this isn’t available on all Chase cards, and up until now, it hasn’t been available on the Chase Sapphire Reserve, given that it basically sells itself.

It looks like that has finally changed. Existing Chase Sapphire Reserve cardmembers can now earn up to 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points when they refer friends and family to the card. To take part in this, follow this link, and enter your last name, zip code, and the last four digits of your credit card number. Once you enter your information you’ll be given a personalized link, or alternatively you can also Tweet or email the referral to someone.

The basic details of this offer are as follows:

  • You get 10,000 Ultimate Rewards bonus points for each friend who applies through your link and is approved
  • You can earn up to 50,000 Ultimate Rewards bonus points through this method per calendar year
  • The person you refer gets the standard sign-up bonus of 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points after spending $4,000 within the first three monhts

Chase has a similar program for some of their other cards, so I find it interesting to see that it has finally been expanded to the  Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card. They say that the numbers of applications on this card has greatly exceeded their expectations, so this finally being introduced could mean one of two things (or a combination of both):

  • Now that the first year is over, they have a new goal of how many applications they want to get over the coming year
  • They’re offering this as a means of retaining cardmembers, because you can only refer others to the card if you have it yourself

  1. Greetings Lucky – I am considering dropping my Sapphire Preferred to sign up for the Reserve. I also have the Ink Business Preferred and Chase Freedom . Will my Ink Business Preferred account allow for me to accrue UR points on my Chase Freedom in the absence of the Sapphire Preferred? In case I am not approved for the Reserve (I’m under 5/24 now so don’t see a reason why I would not be…) Thank you for any insight you are willing to provide.

  2. Ok, I don’t have Chase Sapphire Reserve referral link. But I have Chase Sapphire Preferred Referral link, which also provide the same bonus.

    If anyone is interested in Chase Sapphire Preferred instead, here is the link. Thanks in advance.

    “Earn 50,000 bonus points with Chase Sapphire Preferred. I can be rewarded too if you apply here and are approved for the card. Learn more.

  3. Hi Lucky,

    Love OMAAT! For a Canadian would be wonderful if you could specify whether the card is available for Canadians. Even better if you could (possible ?) request the CC co to make the card available to Canadians ! I apply at times, only to find out that the State designation does not allow anything but US locations.

    Thanks again. Keep up the good work!
