Points, points, points. So many points. There has been so much going on that it is hard to keep up. The first massive news is both amazing and super disappointing.
Let me put this simply that the 100,000 points (after spend) Chase Sapphire Reserve card is one of the if not the best travel card period. The problem is if you have applied for more than 5 credit cards (any, not just from Chase) you are likely to be flat out turned down. Anyone who has not got 5 cards over the past 2 years should seriously consider this card as it is a real blockbuster.
If you look at BANK card links you will find all the BANKS that I have links for. I appreciate your support of the blog if you go for this card.
If you have applied for and received more than 5 cards over the past 2 years your only choice is to go to a Chase bank and see if you are pre-approved or if you are a PVT banking client you are likely able to get the card in the branch. That is the skinny of this amazing new card out today.
The next also has to do with Chase Ultimate Rewards. If you have an INK BUSINESS card that earns 5x points at office supply stores you can buy 3x$200 Visa debit gift cards that after rebate actually cost less than face value. This means you get over 3000 UR points net FREE of charge. My guess is most stores will sell out fast so I would call for stock before you swing by either OfficeMax or Office Depot in your area.
The next one is a daily game where you can win SPG points by playing. SPG does these almost every year and it is well worth a few clicks each day to see if you win FREE valuable SPG points! I would also consider the personal SPG card if you have never had it or the business SPG card as the days of being Marriott’ed are getting closer and closer! – René
