Chase Offering Some Sapphire Reserve Customers Bonus Points to Open More Accounts

It was not cheap for Chase to acquire all of their shiny new (often Millennial) Sapphire Reserve cardmembers, especially back when they were handing out 100,000 points worth $1,500 in travel booked through Chase to everyone who was approved and hit the spending requirement. I’ve numbers like 5 – 7 years, on average, for the bank to make that acquisition cost back, assuming that folks even keep the card for that long. However, an interesting trend I have seen with this card is…

Earn Points Referring Friends to the Chase Sapphire Reserve

One way that spouses, partners, and families can earn extra miles and points is by referring each other to rewards-earning credit cards. If Person A has a particular card, it is common that they can then earn a few thousand bonus points when they successfully refer Person B to the card, assuming Person B applies and gets approved. There is typically a cap to how many miles and points you can earn this way per year, but it can be…

Chase Further Tightens the Rules on Sapphire Cards

In the middle of the Hurricane Harvey madness, Chase has changed the rewards credit card rules on us again. Most of us are probably now familiar with the 5/24 rule that does not permit you to get many of the Chase credit card products if you have opened 5 or more new accounts across all banks in the last 24 months. This applies to all of the Chase Ultimate Rewards earning products, and many of their co-branded cards as well.…

You can earn Hyatt points faster with Chase Ultimate Reward cards and then transfer those points into your Hyatt account than you can earn them with the Hyatt card itself. However, it has just a $75 annual fee, awards a Category 1-4 anniversary night each year that is…

Earn 10x Chase Points at Walmart.com This Month

Six more days. Y’all, school officially starts here in six more days. Not just meet the teacher or orientation night or whatever, but an actual real school day with a 7:10AM bus pick-up is in just six days. I have mixed feelings about this return of pre-dawn wake-ups, evening homework battles, never ending paperwork, daily lunch kit packing, the onslaught of extra-curricular activities, second grade best friend drama, and more, though the idea of getting back on a regular schedule…
