Chase Sapphire Reserve®

The Chase Sapphire Reserve Card offers some of the best travel rewards and benefits on the market.

You’ll get 3X points on travel and dining, as well as 50,000 bonus points for spending $4,000 in the first 3 months (worth $750 when redeemed towards travel through Chase Ultimate Rewards). The 3X points on travel starts after you finish using the $300 travel credit.

Your $300 travel credit will apply to a wide variety of travel expenses, and you’ll get other benefits and features that are worth hundreds of dollars. They include Priority Pass Select airport lounge access, a $100 application fee credit for Global Entry or TSA Pre✓, and more. This is a Visa Infinite card, providing even more valuable services than Visa Signature.

The 3X reward rate will begin after you earn the annual $300 travel credit. So you won’t earn rewards on the first $300 of travel expenses, but you’ll get a statement credit to cover the costs.

This card has a large annual fee of $450, so make sure you’ll be using it often enough to pay for the cost.

As retired Americans my wife and I do top tier cruising about 4 times a year and are outside the USA about 7 months a year. The worldwide dining benefit really has an impact for us. The AE Platinum really doesn't provide the best benefit package for us without a 3x dining rebate.

Very good card

The chase sapphire reserve has been around for over 2 years now. I got the card shortly after it was released and I have to say that it has definitely been worth it so far. The sign up bonus and the earning categories are great for someone who is traveling and eating out frequently. Points add up quickly and reserving a flight through the chase ultimate rewards website is easy. You can also use the shop through chase feature to earn bonus points at most major retailers.I don’t recommend getting another card for an authorized user. You can save the authorized user fee and load the card on your spouses Apple or Samsung Pay. This can be an issue though if your spouse needs their own priority pass membership. The annual travel credit can be applied to a wide range of purchases including parking, airfares, train tickets, etc. Mine is typically used up in the first two to three months.I used the price protection benefit a few times and while it was sometimes a hassle dealing with, I eventually would be reimbursed for product price drops. Unfortunately that benefit is no longer available. I have yet to use the other purchase benefits, probably because I forget they’re available.I like having the peace of mind that the rental car collision damage waiver is primary as opposed to secondary like most cards. I have not had to use it yet though.The global entry fee was reimbursed very quickly.Point transfers are quick but make sure you only transfer to accounts that you get a better value for your points. There’s not many since you can redeem points through the ultimate rewards website or by calling chase directly at a very good value.All in all a great card that I use for everything but grocery and gas. Other cards provide a better return on those purchases.
