Everyone else is writing about it, so I’ll jump on the bandwagon: Our affiliate company has let us know that the Chase Sapphire Preferred deal will be changing in some way on Monday. I have no idea what that means either. If I had to guess (ie, if I were in some crazy situation where someone has put a gun to my head and literally the only reason they did it was to find out my opinion on what would happen with the Sapphire Preferred card on Monday) I would say that they will increase the spend requirement to earn the 40,000 points.
Now, I hope no one does that to me (the gun thing, not the point raising requirement thing). I can’t imagine how that scenario would go down. But there ya go.
In any case, they’ve already lowered the 50k bonus to 40k, so I can’t imagine that getting dropped further. And what do I know? It might be nothing. But out of full disclosure, I figured I’d let everyone know that, in short, something will happen to that card on Monday*
* Could this be the least useful post I’ve ever written? Possibly. Well, no – I think this one about a fart diverting a flight was probably the least. But perhaps this is second.
In any case, if you want to apply for the Sapphire Preferred card and throw me a bone on the referral, you can use this link.
