Hi Travel Junkies,
The Chase Sapphire Reserve application is now publicly available!
The Sapphire Reserve is arguably the greatest travel credit card we have ever seen and I plan on getting one myself. Here’s why you should consider it too:
Chase Sapphire Reserve:
- 100,000 Ultimate Rewards points (worth $1,500 when redeemed through Chase Ultimate Rewards) after you spend $4,000 in the first 3 months (valued at ~$1,500)
- $450 annual fee
- $300 annual travel credit
- $100 Global Entry credit
- Complimentary access to over 900 airport lounges
- 3 points per $1 spend on travel and restaurants, 1 point per $1 on all else.
Personally I would value the 100,000 Ultimate Rewards points closer to $2,000 thanks to the ability to transfer them to Chase’s many travel partners (Southwest, United, Hyatt, Marriott, etc.). But even redeeming them through The Ultimate Rewards portal will get you at least $1,500 of travel.
The $300 annual travel credit is also an amazing perk because it can be used for travel purchases such as airfare and hotels. This certainly makes the $450 annual fee a little more bearable.
Bottom line, this card is an absolute must for any travel enthusiast.
