The online application for the Chase Sapphire Reserve is now live. If you have been living in a cave the past few days, here are a few introductory posts about the Chase Sapphire Reserve – basically it’s a premium card that is offering a 100,000 Ultimate Rewards signup bonus and comes with a $450 annual fee. The discussion was whether Chase Sapphire Reserve 5/24 would be in effect, and now that the application is live, we now have some data points.
