I have this card, and I love it. Since I love to travel, this is what I rely on every time. The bonus points was what got me to enroll in this particular card, and I did avail the 40,000 bonus points within the first 3 months of use, and I had no problem receiving it. Customer service was friendly, and always available, any time 24/7. The setback I would say is the annual fee of $95. I almost forgot about that, and was wanting to complain. As for interest rates, and late charges, they are about the same as most of my other cards I have, which isn't a huge deal for me.

I like this card, but it isn't the best credit card I own. My interest rate is fairly low. The customer servicer is available 24/7, and that is convenient for me being that I work late nights. The annual fee is a killer at $95 after the first year. The rewards add up fast!

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is the card my husband is using exclusively right now as he travels for work. The annual fee and interest rate is too high, but his company reimburses us so we are not affected by that negative. The initial gift of 40,000 reward points makes the card most attractive. With all of his and our family's traveling it is easy to accumulate additional points, which we redeem often. In the long run, saves us money.

Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is a card that can be used throughout the world and it has a great rewards program. If this is the card you use predominately and if you like to travel, it is easy to accrue points that can be converted to traveling dollars. Unlike some other cards you might get, the 1 point earned for each dollar spent gives you the ability to accrue points easy. On top of that, while traveling you can earn 2 points per dollar when dining at restaurants and most traveling expenses. For those worried about introduction fees, the first year is waved so you get the opportunity to try more

I have traveled to Europe with this card twice now and what I like about it is the ease of use worldwide combined with zero foreign transaction fees. In contrast, someone I was traveling with had a different type of credit card which was hardly accepted anywhere. Most cashiers we ran into hadn't even heard of it. So I am happy to travel with a Visa and feel confident that I will be able to purchase what I need anywhere. I also like the huge variety of rewards offered although I have opted for the statement credits which helped pay for my trip to Europe! The downside is the annual more

This sounds like Chase Sapphire is offering a lot for it's customers. I'm not too sure I agree. The yearly rate is much higher than the $35 I pay for my Capital One MasterCard. Also I notice that they charge a fee and a higher percentage for cash advances. I also get charged a higher interest rate on cash advances but that does not include an additional cash advance fee %.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card offers many perks in comparison to some of its competitors of a similar type. 40,000 bonus points can be earned by spending $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months. Add a preauthorized user and make a purchase in the first 3 months and that is another 5,000 bonus points! However, if a person doubts they can spend $3,000 so quickly and their main enticement for enrolling is bonus points, then there may be better options. The Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card by American Express offers a slightly smaller bonus point of 30,000, but there is only a requirement of $1,000 being spent in the more

I had this card for a long period of time. The only reason that I had to give it up was because there was no chase bank in my area. But for as long as I had the card, I never had any trouble with it. The fees on the card were not that bad, even though I hardly ever incurred them. I really enjoyed the card when I had it. There were a lot of really nice rewards that this card offered and it always made my shopping convenient.

This really is a great card for those who travel, and also those who enjoy great customer service. I was recently traveling with school to New Zealand/Australia, and the "no foreign transaction fees" was huge, as I had to make multiple purchases that were then expensed. In addition, I'm absolutely satisfied with the customer service I get whenever I call the customer service line. A human being always answers the first time, with no computer menu whatsoever. The annual fee is a bit much, but I believe that it's worth it for the high quality rewards, lack of foreign transaction fees, and great customer service. I completely recommend it!

The Chase Sapphire Preferred card is good overall. I like how you are able to get a large number of points very quickly and that the points are a one to one type of transfer to another point system with a company. The big problem I have with this card is that it has an annual fee. I know it is only after the first year, but it is hard for me to justify spending all this money on a card when there is very little chance that I will make back the needed number of points to justify this cost.

If you have to travel for business, Chase Sapphire Preferred is a very useful card, offering 40,000 bonus points when you spend $3,000 on purchases. You need to do that in the first 3 months of accepting the card, though, so get it right before your next trip. Your points translate into $500 in travel savings when you turn them in through Chase Ultimate Rewards. For a business traveler, this is a good benefit. For myself, I'm not that frequent a traveler these days. I think I'd prefer the Capital One Venture Once card, because it lets me travel on my day of choice, with no blackout restrictions. This will more

I love the chase sapphire preferred credit card. It's perfect for traveling and I love the point system. 20% discount on travel? Heck yeah sign me up for that. We have a big trip coming up and this card is going to be my savior. The only downfall when it comes to this card is if you are not a frequent traveler. You would lose one of the sweetest benefits, which would be that 20 percent discount. Over all though, the chase card is pretty good!

The Chase Sapphire Preferred credit card is, hands down, the best rewards credit card out there. If you are a frequent traveler then this card is a must have because not only is there no foreign transaction fee but there is also a 20% discount when you redeem points towards travel. I highly recommend this card because the signup bonus of 40K points is too good to pass up right now. Base you get 1% on everything which is pretty much standard, but the 2% back on travel and dining is also a huge plus that you have to consider when choosing credit cards.

The Chase Sapphire is my favorite credit card that I have right now. With my wedding and honeymoon quickly approaching, I applied for this card because the 40,000 bonus points when you spend over $3,000 really caught my eye since we were going to book our honeymoon using this card. Also, it was very important that our card had the credit chip in it, which is a necessity for travelling overseas, like we are. Overall, I think this is a great card because it rewards us with more travelling in the end.

For a traveler, the Chase Sapphire Preferred card offers some very exciting bonus opportunities when you use it to pay for purchases, something I did not receive with my Discover card. The interest rate is higher than others, but if you travel frequently it is worth it!

The Chase Sapphire card is very beneficial *if* you frequently travel. For everyone else, it's really just so so. The interest rate is quite high for a top shelf credit card but the rewards have to be recouped from somewhere. Overall, it's very good for business travelers and only so so for everyone else.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card has some tremendous benefits with the initial allotment of 40,000 reward points. It's easy to rack up additional points with this card and is certainly easier to do so than many other reward cards. The annual fee is a bit high and the interest rate could be better. But if one uses the card enough, those reward points will certainly balance out those drawbacks, and then some.

This has been my favorite card in terms of customer service. They've always been wonderful when dealing with address changes or lost cards. They've also been great about reporting unusual activity with the card. They prevented the entire available credit from being rung up on purchases in Mexico (where I definitely wasn't!).

A great card with a great Rewards program; 40,000 points to start and double points on travel and dining is wonderful. While the $95 annual fee is steep compared to the Capital One Venture, AmEx Blue Cash and others, you can easily make up for it--and some--through usage.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card offers more back to its users than any card on the market. I was a long time card holder of Capital One, however their customer service and lack of appreciation towards me as a valued customer left me looking for more. The Chase Sapphire card let's you know immediately that you are appreciated, through their offer of 40,000 bonus points earned on $3,000 earned in the first 90 days. Who couldn't use $500.00 extra?

The Chase Sapphire Preferred card is my favorite credit card to date. You can earn 1% cash back and up to 2% on certain items. When it comes to cashing in your rewards points, there are many different options offered. You can receive cash back and use it towards your monthly statement, you can use it to earn / buy travel points, and they offer special discounts on many other things to use your rewards points against. I would say the only set back is the annual fee which is about $90.00. Depending on how much you spend and get back this might not be that big of a deal more

I have been a big fan of Chase bank for the longest time. I had my first credit card with them since college. Since then I have been very satisfied with their service etc. The benefits of having a Chase Sapphire Card are that there is no annual fee for the first year, and no foreign fee whatsoever. In addition, they have a reward program that allows the owner to save up points and use them on other purchases. Definitely I would recommend it to my friends and family.

I really like my Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. I use it on almost every purchase. That way I get the most out of the reward points. The first year has no annual fee, after that it is $95.00 per year. The interest rate that they offer on this card is also more than a fair rate. Customer service is also great to deal with. I have had this card for 2 years now and have no complaints.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card has been quite amazing to use. From no annual fee for the first year to a low $95 fee yearly after this credit card is great to use for many reasons. I get a huge amount of bonus points when making major purchases like pricey electronics/home appliances. The Chase Ultimate Rewards also make this card extremely rewarding to use on most major purchases. Also with 15.99% interest rate this card stands out from the others with much higher interest rates.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is one of the best rewards cards on the market today. You instantly get bonus points upon signing up, and the double points for eating out and traveling are really appealing, much more so than any other rewards cards I currently own. I also like that there's no limit on the amount of points you can earn or redeem; other reward cards I currently have enforce annoying limitations that almost make the reward function of the card pointless. The only downside of the card is the annual fee, but you don't have to pay it for the first year so that's nice. Overall just a more

The rewards on this card are fantastic. The points really add up quickly. This is my go to card. The interest rates are a little high but I keep the balance low and rack up the points. If you keep a low balance and can really take advantage of the rewards from this card, I highly recommend it.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is my favorite card. I got 20,000 bonus points, which became $200 credit. This is the best card for traveling, especially for those who travel more than occasionally and tend to spend copious amounts of money. Every time you use points to book travel through Chase, 20% of those points are automatically refunded. This is definitely the best card I have ever had the privilege to experience using. I highly recommend this particular card to anyone that would like to earn back savings on their family’s trips or personal business trips as well. This is the card for you.

The Chase Saphire Preferred Credit Card is a beautiful credit card that is made out of a combination of metal and plastic. I've had this card for a while and find it to be an excellent card with great benefits. The bonus of 40,000 points redeemable for a statement credit of up to $500 is a huge win, but I would rather transfer these points to united airlines where I could make these points worth more than $1000. The annual fee of $95 is nothing compared to the benefits you receive (covers 5 years of annual fees), and if you really don't want to pay it you can just downgrade more

Thank you for this review, I found it very helpful. The idea of down-grading the card if you do not like the annual fee is excellent. It makes me feel like I could try this card for a year or two and, if I felt I was not getting my money's worth out of the "Preferred" status, I could easily change my account without suffering any serious negative consequences.

The fees that are charged and the interest make this card less than stellar. However I would recommend this card because the customer service is good and the reward incentives are various. All in all I would give this car 3 stars only because of fees.

I've had one of these for a while and like it a lot. It's really geared for travel, though I use the points mostly for rental cars since I love to drive and hate the airlines. Even the cash advance rate is lower than the basic interest rate for many cards these days. It takes pretty good credit to qualify though, but they give really big lines of credit. Every time I call them, the people are really super nice and professional. The 15.24% is really great if you have the credit score to get one of these, highly recommend it. Just remember to put $3,000 through it the first more

This is an excellent card with numerous rewards for dining and travel experiences. Cardholders receive double rewards points every time they use their card at any dining facility, regardless of whether it's fast food or fine dining. Members also get double points for all travel expenses, allowing you to accrue a substantial amount of points when you use the card on trips. These two benefits, combined with the 7% annual points dividend offer easily offsets the annual fee associated with holding the card. This is my go to credit card for every day expenses (especially dining and travel) and I recommend it to anyone looking for a new option for more

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card has many perks that certain types of people will find very valuable. I myself was looking for a card with no international usage fees as I make frequent business trips to Europe and Asia. This card perfectly fit the bill. No more international fees, and the concierge service comes in handy as well. The reward points cover the annual fee in my case, so it’s essentially a free account. You can cash in the reward points to help pay the balance, or as a cash deposit into your bank account. I would definitely recommend this card to others.

I love my Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. The introductory 40,000 points is a great deal, especially when coupled with the 20% rate reduction on things like plane tickets and car rentals when you redeem the points via their ultimate rewards offers. Their APR is fair, and their annual rate is relatively low for a card of this time. I like accruing double points on travel and dining. Also, an unimportant note, but the card itself is metal and has a solid feel to it that makes it seem impressive. I'm looking forward to using this as my primary credit card from now on.

The Chase Sapphire Card is a nice card to have in your wallet for your every day purchases. Where this card shines is the 2% you get back on travel, dining and restaurants and the 1% you get back on every other purchase. On top of that you will receive a 7% bonus on all points you earn at the end of the year, even points you redeemed already. There are also a significant introductory bonus of $400 in rewards when you meet spending requirements. if you don't mind getting your bonus points at the end of the year you might want to consider this card.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is a pretty awesome card but really it has to be right for you. You've got to travel a lot, so you can put those earned points to good use. You've got to have a really good credit score, just to get it. If it's a good card for you then you're golden because the card starts you with 40,000 points. Which is great and you get a point per dollar you spend. Which is also great. The only this is to only keep the card for a year because once that $95 annual fee kicks in, it's bad. So, I would really recommend this more

HOLY COW this is the best credit card available right now! They offer simply the BEST rewards for their customers. Chase Sapphire Preferred Card offers a huge incentive bonus to join- the equivalent of 500 dollars in travel is just wonderful and no foreign transaction fees? Simply divine. The only thing that I raise my eyebrows to is the 95 dollar annual fee. That hurts. I suppose it might be worth it, but that really cuts into your savings when you have to spend 95 dollars to continue using it. This card reminds me of the Capital One credit card during their Double Miles Challenge. They doubled all the points more

I had the Chase Sapphire card and I called Chase if I could upgrade to the Chase Preferred. Luckily, they agreed and now I have this preferred one. I use this credit card mainly for travel and booking hotel rooms. I like how they give you the promo of spend $3,000 in your first three months and then you'll get 40,000 points. This credit card is also similar to the Chase sapphire because you get 2x points on restaurants. So for people who like to eat, this is the credit card for you. The number that you call for the Chase sapphire preferred is a direct number that leads to more

Just wondering if this has ever happend to anyone: So someone stole my card number and purchased a plane ticket on Malaysia Airline from LA while I was vacationing in France. I disputed the charge online and they removed it temporarily while investigation was ongoing. A month later, I received a letter in the mail that they have "deemed the charge to be valid" and that it will be re-applied to my account.

Uh, that is not true in my case. I summed up ALL TRANSACTIONS TO-DATE starting from my very first purchase on the card (I only got the card in Feb this year). I pay off my balance every month through auto-pay. The payment I made for last month was posted a couple weeks ago. It's either a computer glitch, or they're intentionally trying to scam customers. Since they've been denying there's anything wrong, I am just gonna assume that they're doing this intentionally. Come on, spreadsheets don't lie (and I sent it to them with my inquiry); they should at least make an effort to check the numbers. I was more

Amily, they wouldn't cook up books. Largely because as you mentioned, if someone like you put out lawsuits, the damage from that action is far greater than cheating someone of 1-2k dollars. What often happens in fraud cases, is they will withhold ALL charges. This includes legitimate ones as well as fraudulent ones. As such, when the bill is posted, you have paid a lot less money than what you should have (since legit ones are also withheld, and doesn't reflex the actual spending). Once investigation is complete, they will remove fraudulent ones, and which they did, did they not? Chase is great at responding to your needs in this more

Hi Janice - Unfortunately Chase only offers Chase Sapphire Preferred Card under the MasterCard network. If having a VISA card with no foreign fees is important to you, we would recommend that you consider the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card. As long as you redeem your miles for any travel expenses that you have charged on the card you effectively get 2% cash back.

Here are more details about the CapOne Venture card:
