No, you cannot get the Chase Sapphire Reserve 100k bonus anymore, as it was a limited-time promotion that ran from August 2016 through March 2017. The card now offers a bonus of 60,000 bonus points for spending $4,000 in the first 3 months. That’s still one of the biggest credit card bonuses on the market, though. It also helps offset Chase Sapphire Reserve’s $550 annual fee.
So, at the end of the day, the Chase Sapphire Reserve’s 100k bonus is no longer available because it was never supposed to be permanent. It was the equivalent of 35% cash back, and that’s just not sustainable. Chase offered it to build some buzz for the new Chase Sapphire Reserve Card when it was introduced. Since that seems to have worked, they retired that promotion.

It was only for a limited time, because they weren't making money. Now they cut that in half, for a little breathing room.
