With the new year comes new savings with the Chase Sapphire Reserve travel credit! By using it to get $300 back on your regular, everyday travel charges, you can really go a long way to making the high annual fee hurt a lot less! Now that 2018 is here, it is a new time to get your Chase Sapphire Reserve travel credit again!
How to Track the Chase Sapphire Reserve Travel Credit Status
The Chase Sapphire Reserve has many great selling points but for me and many others, one of them is the $300 in annual travel credit. This is great if you are traveling (or driving through tolls on the highway!), especially since the annual fee on this card is $450. Getting an annual travel credit of $300 is a nice way to balance this out.
The Chase Sapphire Reserve Travel Credit
While you would think it is easy to locate in your Chase account area, it is not the best place to go to check on your travel credit status. Unlike the Amex Platinum travel credit (which is for a single airline and sometimes will not post automatically for certain things), the Chase Sapphire Reserve travel credit is an automatic process that covers all travel that is coded that way for purchases.
This means it is automatically applied to your statement when you spend. So, you can see your Chase statement and that the credit is applied but not the status of your total $300.
Track the Chase Sapphire Reserve Travel Credit Status
To check the status of your Chase Sapphire Reserve travel credit, head over to the Ultimate Rewards site. After signing in, select your Chase Sapphire Reserve card.
Next, it will bring you to your rewards overview and you can see the points you have earned, what you will earn on your next statement, and the status of your Chase Sapphire Reserve travel credit.
One of the nice things is how fast it posts. I paid for travel and the travel credit was applied to my statement the same day the travel charge posted. No airline selection, no calling in – it just worked!
