Chase Matching Better Credit Card Offers Again
A datapoint on reddit provides some positive news about Chase matching better credit card offers again. The redittor was approved for a Chase United Quest card a week ago when the offer was at 80,000 miles with $5,000 spend. Soon after there was a new 90,000 miles bonus with the same spending requirement. he contacted Chase through the Secure Message and was upgraded to the new and improved offer for the Chase United Quest card.
Update: Another datapoint for Chase United Quest again.
You can try messaging Chase if you have recently applied for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card, now that a new 80,000 points bonus is publicly available. Let me know in the comments if you have been successful at matching better offers with Chase recently.
Chase No Longer Matching Better Credit Card Offers?
(Sep 30, 2020) Chase has long been one of the best credit card issuers when it comes to matching better offers. If you apply for a card and then there is a better bonus for that same card within three months, Chase would normally match you to that better offer. The process was also quick and easy. You just needed to send a secured message and they would take care of it.
However, it looks like that is no longer the case. It has now happened repeatedly with several recent offers, where Chase reps are telling cardholders that they cannot be matched to a better bonus. I first wrote about the issue when the new Chase Sapphire Preferred 80K bonus was released. Even before that matches were not offered for better United card bonuses. And now people are being denied for a match to the new Chase IHG Premier card bonus that I wrote about earlier.
Let me know if you have recently contacted Chase to match to a better credit card offer, and whether you have had any success in recent months. Hopefully this is just a temporary policy.

Denied for IHG match. Applied 2 weeks ago.
I was approved for the Sapphire Preferred card when the bonus was 60K points. A month later, right after I met the minimum spend, the 80K offer came out. I asked Chase to match the new offer, but no luck.
