A new and exciting travel credit card making the previous category leader - Chase Sapphire Preferred Card envious.
- 100,000 intro bonus if you spend $4,000 in the first three months of your account. That equals $1,500 if redeemed for travel through Chase Ultimate Rewards
- $300 annual travel credit that can be used for most general travel purchases - airfare, car rental, hotels, etc.
- $100 credit that can be applied towards Global Entry or TSA Pre-Check purchase.
- Complimentary annual Priority Pass membership to access airport lounges worldwide.
- 3x points on all travel and dining purchases
- 1x regular rate on all other purchases
- No international transaction fee
- 50% additional bonus if you redeem your points through Chase Ultimate Rewards
- High $450 annual fee, but it is almost completely offset by the $300 travel credit and $100 credit on Global Entry.
- It is hard to be approved for the card. Excellent credit is a must but doesn't guarantee you'll be approved. If you had opened 5 credit accounts in the past 24 months, your chances of approval are very low (5/24 rule).
If you think your credit is good enough to be approved for the card - Chase Sapphire Reserve definitely worth it. If you are a current user of Chase Sapphire Preferred card - there is a good reason for getting a new card and downgrading your Preferred card to a no annual fee version.
