Chase Sapphire Banking, Get 60K Ultimate Rewards When You Upgrade or Sign Up

Chase Sapphire Banking is a new product that was introduced last month. Chase is trying to attract the millions of new customers who back in 2016 applied for the Sapphire Reserve card with a 100,000-point sign-on bonus. The new Chase Sapphire Banking bonus was rumored to be 60,000 Ultimate Rewards points and come around in October. Now the bonus is here, for both new customers and those who upgrade an existing Chase account.

Fees

There is a $25 Monthly Service Fee for Chase Sapphire Checking OR $0 when you have an average beginning day balance of $75,000 or more in any combination of this account and linked qualifying deposits/investments.

Other Chase bank bonuses require you to keep the account open for 6 months. But for this bonus, there’s no time limit mentioned. It could be worth checking before closing the account, or just keep it opened for 6 months until we see data points that show otherwise.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

This Chase Sapphire Banking bonus is huge. 60,000 Ultimate Rewards points are worth $900 if you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve card or $750 with a Chase Sapphire Preferred 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 just a checking account.

Terms also state that the bonus may be reportable to you and the IRS on Form 1099-INT. We do not know what value they will attach to the points. You can read more here about what to do when tax time comes around.
