Chase Sapphire Reserve Card Brings New Meaning To Luxury Credit Cards

[Tuesday, September 6th, 2016]

There’s a new rewards credit card in town, and it joins the Chase Sapphire lineup – one of the most popular luxury rewards credit cards around.

The Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card gives triple points on travel and diving purchases, flexible redemption options, and high-value travel credits. Pam Codispoti, president of Chase branded cards, said the company is taking the Chase Sapphire brand “to the next level. We’re giving our customers more rewards, benefits, and the opportunity to unlock one-of-a-kind travel and dining experiences to enrich their lives.”

The card will be a Visa Infinite card, meaning it offers the highest level of service, features, and benefits. This is a step up from the Visa Signature platform, which also offers great perks for cardholders. The Visa Infinite line and the Chase Sapphire Reserve card are targeted to affluent cardholders with excellent credit, and offers high credit lines and maximum value in rewards.

Sign on bonus is the best Chase currently offers

The sign on bonus of 100,000 bonus points after spending $4,000 in the first three months is the highest offering that Chase has. When redeemed through Chase Ultimate Rewards, this is worth $1,500 in gift cards, travel, or other redemption choices.

Other benefits include three points for every dollar spent on travel and dining, one point per dollar on all other spending, a $300 travel credit each year to reimburse for travel purchases, a $10 credit toward the application fee for Global Entry or TSA Precheck, no foreign transaction fees, and Priority Pass Select membership that gives access to over 900 airport lounges in over 400 cities across the world. Members and their travel companions can all access these lounges.

Cardholders also get 24/7 direct access to Chase Sapphire Reserve customer service specialists, more access to Chase Sapphire events and experiences, and special benefits at hotels and resorts across the world with The Luxury Hotel and Resort Collection.

Worth the fee?

The card has a $450 annual fee, comparable to other elite credit cards. Each extra authorized user on the account pays another $75 fee each year.

Cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve are generally well worth paying an annual fee, even one that seems a little hefty, because the rewards are so great. With perks that pay off especially well for travelers, this card will likely prove to be popular among the jet set, as well as anyone who wants to earn a big sign up bonus.
