Here’s how to activate Chase Sapphire Reserve:
Log into your account on the Chase activation webpage, or call (888) 489-7249 and enter your card number when prompted. You may also be asked security questions to verify your identity.
Your new card should arrive 7-10 business days after you’re approved for an account.
You can begin using your Chase Sapphire Reserve immediately after activating it.
If you don’t activate your card within 6 months, your account will be automatically closed.
