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 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.
