Got the Chase Sapphire Reserve® in your wallet? You can now use it to sign up for our Thrifty Traveler Premium flight deal alerts for free – whether you've been on the fence about joining or you're a longtime member.

With Thrifty Traveler Premium, we send the cheapest domestic and international flight deal alerts straight to your inbox, tailored to your home airport. And we've confirmed that our Thrifty Traveler Premium service codes on your credit card statements as a travel expense. That means it's eligible for the Chase Sapphire Reserve travel credit, the $300 annual credit that covers any and all travel expenses.

Thrifty Traveler Premium starts at just $59.99 a year if you want to give it a try. Just use your Reserve card at checkout and voila – it will automatically trigger the travel credit and reimburse you for the signup fee. If you're already signed up, just log in to your Premium account and change your payment method to your Reserve card.

Thrifty Tip: Don't have the Reserve card? Pay for Premium with another card that earns you bonus points on travel purchases, like 2x points on the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card.

  • I have Chase Sapphire Preferred credit card. Can I get Thrify Traveler or Thrifty Traveler Premium with this account for free or is there a charge?

    • Hey Sandra, our Premium flight deal alert service costs $45 per year – or you can try it by the month for $5.99. The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card does not have a travel credit, so using that card won’t make the service free. You will, however, still earn 2x point on your purchase!
