More Reasons to Like the Chase Sapphire Card

Drop the Miles Cards. Get this One.

chase sapphire reserve cardIf you read my blog posts on a regular basis, you know I am a big fan of the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card. When I signed up for and paid my $450 fee, I immediately got $300 back on my first travel purchase.  Once I spent $4,000 on the card, I received 100,000 bonus points which I immediately used to purchase over $1,300 in travel (which by the way, I received frequent flyer miles on the airline tickets I purchased with my points) with those points.  On top of it, I now enjoy lounge access for me and my travel companions with my Priority Pass. I've used it in Dublin, Puerto Maldonado (Peru), Lima, Naples, and Lisbon.  But wait!  There are more reasons to use the Chase Sapphire Reserve card.   I'll explain in today's The Traveling Professor blog post.
