This card has one of the most valuable sign up bonuses currently available. Chase is offering new cardholders 40,000 bonus points after making $3,000 in purchases with the card during the first 3 months of cardmembership.
Just to give you an idea of how much this deal is worth, 40,000 bonus points can be redeemed for up to $625 worth of travel including airfare & hotel accommodations when booking through Chase Ultimate rewards, or $500 in airfare & hotel accommodations when booking directly through the airline or hotel chain.
The airlines that accept Chase Sapphire Preferred Card points for free airline tickets do not impose travel restrictions on these types of tickets, and there are no “blackout” dates; in other words, dates when no offers of this type can be used. It is also not necessary to try to plan a trip within a specific time period, because the points do not expire.
Chase Sapphire Preferred Card does have an annual fee of $85 however this is waived the first year.
Cardholders may also want to know that customer service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the service is provided by a real person, not a recording.
