  • Offer not available to existing Chase Sapphire Banking and Chase Private Client customers.

Conclusion

This is a great bonus for a bank account, worth $900 if you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve card. But you need to deposit a large amount, $75,000, and keep it in there for 90 days. Investment and savings accounts are also eligible, so those could be better options than checking.

You also need that 75K balance in your account to avoid the $25 monthly fee. Other Chase bank bonuses require you to keep the account open for 6 months, but for this bonus it’s not stated in the terms. It could be worth checking before closing the account.

The upgrade offer is probably the best idea, after first receiving this $600 bonus.

  1. Hey Danny. Strange question but I don’t have a Chase Ultimate rewards card of my own. I’m an authorized user on my son’s account. I have a FICO over 810 and excellent credit but I’ve been well over 5/24 for many years so I can’t get any Ultimate Rewards eligible cards for a while.

    However, I do have a regular Chase checking and savings account. I got an email with an offer code to upgrade my checking account to a Sapphire for the 60,000 Ultimate Rewards points that you mention. I clicked on a link to upgrade my account and it upgraded it and now it says if I deposit $75,000 in new funds for 90 days I’ll get the 60,000 Ultimate Rewards points.

    The problem is I don’t have an Ultimate Rewards card. Do you know if there is any way around this? I’ll try to call the branch near my house but was wondering if anyone has ever run into this situation. How do I become eligible for an Ultimate rewards account with being well over 5/24?

  2. 75k for 3 months can earn decent interest from Ally or other banks and about the time you put in and take out may be 4 months not worth it Chase should add waiver 5/24 I would consider

    • They have been sending out 1099’s for bank UR bonuses for 2018 at 1 cent a piece…article on that coming up later today.

    • Yes but moving 75K around not fun for few hundred bucks then you have to close account to avoid fees and you have to have a Chase reward card and with 5/24 I don’t see it is worth my effort.

  3. Ah wow Mark. That’s good to know. I’ve never gotten any 1099’s for any bank bonuses. Important info. Thanks for sharing!

  4. This is not a new bonus. It’s been available since October/November 2018.

    @Mike Saint: A bonus earned from making a deposit or opening an account are sent 1099’s since it’s considered earned income like interest. A reward earned by a meeting a spending requirement is (typically) not sent a tax form since it’s considered a rebate.

  5. I actually had Chase through SM upgrade my account (existing checking) to the Sapphire checking. My coupon code was expiring in 2-3 days and a head cold had me knocked out. Long story short, they had someone call me and let me know they were able to apply the code and open it for me without going into a branch.

    I had no issues with moving $75k from Ally to the Chase checking account in one lump sum. Waited until the next day and opened the You Invest (sucks no bonus but whatever). A business day later the $75k was moved from checking to YI. I parked all of it into Vanguards Prime Money Market Fund (VMMXX) which last time I checked was close to 2.5%. I know it’s not FDIC insured but I’ll take my chances.

    I’m not sure if downgrading after 90 days is possible to avoid the fee (and withdraw the $75k)? After which point I’d wait the 12 months and then go after the You Invest bonus.
