CSP 90-day initial promotion timeline

Postby jbob » Thu May 08, 2014 11:56 pm

This may be a dumb question, but when exactly does the 90 days start to get the bonus points? The day I applied for the card or the day I received or activated it?

Also, is there a way to check your date of expiration for that initial program?

I will be buying a plane ticket to Asia soon and I was hoping to use this purchase to put me over the mark, but it may be toward the end of my 90 days.

When I applied for mine a while back I was surprised to learn that the promotional period to reach $3k spend started on the day I applied and was approved for the card. To be safe, I would consider it started on the day your application was approved. Good luck!

I remember reading a post on TPG or a similar site that said they actually give you +13 days or so, but it does start a day you get approved. So aim for 90 days from when you get approved, but you actually have around 100.
Current Strategy

Chase Freedom + Discover IT + Churning

That's good to know!
