Income Requirements For Chase Sapphire Preferred?

Postby Razanbuddu » Fri Dec 02, 2011 8:51 am

Hi all,

I just recently applied for the Chase Sapphire Preferred but have read in multiple places that the card is aimed at people that make more than $120K a year. Does anyone know if that is true? Because I do not make that much money.

Thanks.
Primary Cards:
Chase Sapphire Preferred (General Use)
Chase Freedom (For 5% Categories)
AmEx Blue Cash Preferred (Groceries/Gasoline/Dept. Stores, If not Freedom category)
Credit Union Visa (low APR)

I got the plain Sapphire and I don't make that much. I think they toss out the $120k figure to give the card more prestige so people will want it. In reality, they'll give credit to anyone they think is going to pay their bill on time.
American Express: Blue Cash Preferred (groceries, 6%; gas, department store, 3%); Gold Delta SkyMiles (Delta Air Lines, 2 miles/dollar, free checked bag).
US Bank: Cash+ (utilities, phone, internet, restaurant, 5%; drugstores, 2%).
FIA Card Services: Fidelity Amex (everything, 2%); Fidelity Visa (everything, 1.5%).
Chase: Freedom (rotating, 5%); Amazon (Amazon.com, 3%); PriorityClub (IHG hotels, 5 points/dollar); Sapphire (not in use).

*All cards are registered with PriorityClub IDine program for 8 points/dollar at participating restaurants.

LOL @ Jeff, true and funny. 43000 is what one my buddy indicated and he was approved for 3000.00.
If they have any reason to believe that you wont/can't pay, you can make 130k and get declined.
