Is there a Visa version of this card? I travel overseas frequently and the best ATM network is for Visa, not M/C.

@Ed Stillman @Corey - We stand corrected. We just confirmed with Chase that both the Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card is a VISA card. Thanks so much for your help!

Their customer service also said that after one year of being a customer you can switch it to a MasterCard version, but we are not sure if we believe that as the Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card is a Visa Signature Card.

According to the company’s website, the offer is not available for current cardmembers, so I guess that you won’t qualify for the bonus.

Chase Sapphire Preferred is a top-notch rewards credit card that provides earnings befitting its gemstone-inspired name. Cardholders who spend at least $4,000 during the first four months their accounts are open are awarded with 40,000 bonus points redeemable for $500 in travel accommodations booked through Chase Ultimate Rewards or $400 in cash. The money train doesn’t stop there either, as users earn two points per dollar spent on travel and dining, one point per dollar spent on everything else and a 20% rewards bonus when using points to book travel directly through Chase.

What’s more, there’s little reason not to at least give this card a whirl, especially if you’re a more

I have had this card for a few years now. The terms and conditions are normal, the rates are right around industry standards. I enjoy the card throughly and often cash in my points for cash. The only negative I have the card is the annual fee after the first year, I do wish this were about half of what it is.

Overall, the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is a pretty good card. The late fee is standard within the industry at $35. The interest rate is pretty standard also at 15.99. It does offer rewards in the forms of points and a very solid 40k as a promotional bonus if you spend 4k in the first 3 months. I am personally a fan of the Chase Marriott Rewards card as I am a lifetime platinum member of Marriott but if I wasn't this card would be at the top of my list to potentially use.

At first I opened my Chase Sapphire Preferred Card because of the bonus they were offering. I got 40,000 points for traveling by simply opening the card which was great for me because I travel a lot. I was able to get my free airplane rides and for every dollar I spend I earn one point which gets me cash back. I am very pleased with my card and plan on keeping it!

It's a great card. The security features and online access are really top notch. I have easy access to my account, and I have yet to have it compromised. The customer service is also really helpful and the website is easy to deal with. I've had much worse times with other major credit card companies

I have been with chase for almost about 15-20 years and I absolutely love their service and customer support. Their credit cards and debit cards have really good credit limits and don't effect your credit score negatively. I like to use this card mostly when I am traveling because its benefits are great for example it has to fee when you do foreign shopping. The reason why I don't like this card is because it had an annual fee of $95 and is only good if you travel that much.

I have had other Chase credit cards that just did not compare to the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. The initial 40,000 bonus points are a great deal, but of course that deal may cost you in interest if you don't get that $4,000 paid off quickly. All things considered, the terms of the card make it attractive to anyone looking to rack up points quickly on everyday items.

The reason I got the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card was for the amazing bonus offer. I opened the account to receive the 40,000 bonus points for traveling. I paid my grad school tuition with the card within three months of opening the card and received the 40,000 bonus points. With the points I was able to buy two, two way plane tickets to Los Angeles for free. I also really like the 1 point per dollar spent bonus because in the eight months between opening the card and going to California, I was able to get over $100 cash back.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is quite attractive and seems particularly useful if you're a traveler. The 40,000 bonus points ($500 travel equivalent) is a really nice incentive for spending $4000 in the first 3 months (if you're planning a big purchase or trip, apply for the card beforehand and take advantage), as are the 2X points for travel restaurants, and the point transfer for frequent travel programs. The clincher for me, however, is the 0% foreign transaction fee. That coupled with the other incentives for travelers is a great combination. My USAA Mastercard charges 1% on foreign transactions, which I tolerate but don't like. And I've seen plenty of more

One thing I like very much about the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is that you have a 21 day grace period. A lot of credit cards that I have looked at have a grace period of 10 days or less. One thing that i dislike about the card is the fact that there is no online response. I don't like that if I were to apply for the card that I would not be able to get an answer immediately and would have to wait for a response in the mail probably 7-10 days later.

In shopping for another credit card I would not choose this one. Currently I have the Capital One Quicksilver card which I love. I enjoy getting straight cash back on all purchases that can be used whenever and wherever I want, rather than a confusing point system like the sapphire card. I also do not like that there is a $95 dollar fee after the first year. After reviewing this card it will most likely not be the one that I choose.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is a well-known company that has been around for quite some time. They have good interest rates and offer excellent benefits. I love the fact that there are no fees for foreign transactions. The only thing I don't like is the fact that there is an annual fee for the card after your first year. I don't like having to pay for a credit card, even one that has great benefits.

What i love about having this credit card is that the customer service is unbeatable compared to other banks i have dealt with in the past. Another thing that i like about the Chase Sapphire credit card is that there is no over the limit fees in case you spend a little too much without knowing. There is also no annual fee for the first year which is an added bonus. This is a credit card you will love.

This Chase Sapphire Preferred card has a lot of good things to it (if you can qualify). Customer service is good which leaves a lot to say for other cards that answer in India?. There is no over the limit fee. Which is good for forgetful people. Cash advance is okay. No foreign fee.
Cons: Can not get a response online. The APR cash advance is high. The late fee is $35 but I guess that's normal.
Can't play with paying the card late. And only a 21 grace period is okay.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred card is a fantastic credit card. It does have an annual fee of $95 after the first year, so I can only recommend it to people who charge a lot of money to the card. Another bonus is that it doesn't charge fees for transactions in other countries, so if you travel a lot, consider this card. I have had excellent experiences with customer service for this card. I have received calls within the hour of there being questionable transactions and if I approve of them or not. I also have had my wallet stolen and I was able to call to cancel the card with more

The Chase Sapphire Preferred card has a lot of benefits for the purposed business person. It is an excellent card because it has no foreign transaction fees which is good if you work out of the country. Another good benefit that I love is the 24 hour a week service which is very patient. The people who work at the service center really help you out and never force you to do anything. Overall I love this card and it really gives you the best rewards that you don't get back from other cards since it has a really good cash back percentage. I love this card!

The Chase Sapphire Preferred card has great potential for the right customer. First and foremost, people must be aware that although the first year is free, each subsequent year has an annual fee of $95. For the casual shopper, this is something you will not make back in rewards points, as opposed to something like the Capital One Quicksilver with 1.5% cash back and no annual fee. However, if you are a frequent traveler or a big spender, the earning potential as well as the up front bonus of 40,000 points can make it a great card. Furthermore, the lack of foreign transaction fees also is great for the frequent more

I love the Chase Sapphire Preferred card because it has all the benefits that I need! I got it because I travel often and it has no foreign transaction fees. I also use the points that I earn while I travel for more travel! I can transfer the points to my airline easily. For the first year, they don't make you pay the $95 annual fee. The annual fee is pretty steep. i was originally going to cancel it after the first year, but I like the other benefits too much. It also is a very nice looking card - I get a lot of compliments on it!

The Chase Sapphire Preferred card has great benefits. It's easy to earn 5,000 points right away! We found that it wasn't hard to rack up points if we used it for vacation and the appliances we didn't expect to buy right after Christmas. The interest rate is higher than I would like but all credit cards are getting that way. The transfer rate is really good. I like that we didn't pay an annual fee the first year while we were trying it. If you like it then you pay $95 per year. It's one of the things I do dislike. All is all, this card is great for the more

The rewards provided on the Chase Saphire Preferred are a great reason to join. I also like the fact that there is no over limit fee! The introductory annual fee of $0.00 is also another compelling reason to sign up for this card. I have had other cards that don't offer that. The no foreign transaction fee is yet another great advantage! I have been abroad using a credit card not knowing that I would have to pay additional fees for every transaction. The balance transfer fee of 3% is also fair, almost 0%! I will be telling family members of the benefits of having a Chase Saphire Preffered card.

I mainly got the Chase Sapphire Preferred for the sign-up bonus. So far I have been pleased with how my points are adding up quickly. Since I regularly use travel mileage cards for flights, this card's bonus of $100 was attractive enough for me to get it. I like that I can combine my points from this card with other Chase credit cards getting free flights even quicker. Since I also have the Chase Freedom card I can double up on getting my miles quicker. I plan to continue using thus card as my main credit card for now and use my other cards as secondary cards as I'm wanting more

Chase Sapphire is one of my favorite credit cards, for a number of reasons. First, it's one of the best cards for building points that can be converted into United Airlines points (among other airlines), and Hyatt Gold Passport points (among other hotels). Second, it is a way to be able to convert points earned by the Chase Freedom card, which has rolling 5x category bonuses, into Chase Rewards points. Most people these points as worth anywhere from 1.5 cents to 2 cents, which is more valuable than if you were to redeem the points for cash at 1 cent a piece. Third, it is one of the few cards more

I love this credit card! By putting most of our expenses on it, we have managed to rack up many travel points. We are definitely planning on using them for a trip overseas! We applied and were approved very quickly. The service is pretty easy and we haven't had any issues.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred card is pretty handy to have compared to other cards. The interest rate is more reasonable than others. I travel quite a bit so not having foreign transaction fees is an added bonus. I’ve used several other cards when traveling and this is the only one that’s been pretty much hassle free. Their customer service is great. Any time I call they answer promptly and are extremely courteous. The only negative thing is the annual fee of $95. I would think that they would have left those in the 90s.

Chase Sapphire Preferred is one of the best credit cards I have ever owned. I signed up after doing some research on which cards provide the most points for travel and I read about the 40,000 point bonus when you spend $3000 in the first 3 months. As I had my grad school tuition bill coming up, I opened the card and paid for my tuition using it. I received the 40,000 points and was able to book two round trip tickets from New York to Los Angeles California, for free. My friend who I am going to California with also opened up the card and is going to use more

Even if you aren't a Chase Sapphire Preferred card holder, you hear enough about it! I always see commercials for this card! I really like the 40,000 bonus points for signing on. If you like the point-based system on credit cards, this is the one to pick. While I don't like the annual fee ($95 after the first year!), it is typical for this kind of card. I travel a lot, so pairing the purchase of the ticket with their point to mileage setup is really ideal for me. Similarly, I also really appreciate the lack of a foreign transaction fee. Those always get me with my other cards!

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 fee 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! more

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 help 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!
