J.P. Morgan Reserve Card 100,000 Offer
According to Doctor of Credit, rumor on the street is that JPM will be launching a “Reserve” card that replaces the Palladium card and that offer would come with a 100K signup bonus. I am confirming that the JP Morgan Reserve 100K offer is real! See details and screen prints below. The details appear to be near identical to the Chase Sapphire Reserve 100k bonus offer that just launched.
Should You Apply?
According to the doc, this card is reserved only for Chase Private Banking clients, which requires $10MM with the bank. According to flyertalk, applying for this won't work. The 5/24 rule
may not does not apply but I'm not sure yet. If you are a Chase Private Banking client, you can probably contact your rep at Chase. Will report back whether non-private clients are able to get approved for this offer.
9/1/16 Update: APPROVED!!!!!!!!! (click to read more)
9/1/16 Update: The fax # no longer works, so you'll need to apply through your banker.
