The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is a good (and popular) general-use travel card, featuring extra points earned on travel and dining while offering a 1:1 transfer rate to several popular travel partners. Regular travelers who make good use of the card should find the annual fee quite reasonable.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, for eligible card accounts approved from 1/1/20 through 3/31/20, the period to make eligible purchases to earn the welcome bonus will be extended for an additional three months.
The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is popular among travelers, in part because it’s made of metal.
It offers a hefty introductory bonus, flexible points that transfer to many frequent traveler programs at a 1:1 rate, and a 25% point bonus when redeeming for travel through Chase Ultimate Rewards.
You’ll get 5X Ultimate Rewards points per dollar on Lyft rides (through March 2022) and 2X points per dollar on travel and dining at restaurants. Use this card for all your travel and dining spending, and then use the points for travel expenses.
