Well, it was inevitable that this would happen and now it has – all the Chase referral and affiliate links have been updated to match the public Chase offers. This update removes the old 24 months language and now has the 48 month restriction across the board.
New 4 Year Language Restricts Customers on All Chase Sapphire Cards
Now, the new language is on both the public links and through the affiliate/referral channels. If you had not yet applied, you will now have to wait until the 48 months elapses.
This is a major disappointment for those that love the value that flexibility of the Chase Sapphire cards. They have some nice earnings in everyday categories and they also have the flexibility in using the points – transferring them to a host of quality partners or using them directly for travel.
The tough part about this new restriction is not just that you are no longer able to get the bonus but that you cannot even get the card! For many that might have closed the Sapphire card in the past and planned on opening one once the 24 months expired, that is going to be the toughest part.
