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.
There’s an excellent introductory bonus of 60,000 points for spending $4,000 in the first three months. That’s equivalent to $750 towards travel expenses when redeeming through Ultimate Rewards, or potentially even more via point transfers.
