More difficult value proposition moving to $250 effective annual fee ($150 more than the sapphire preferred).

I'm probably stuck with it for a while even there though, pretty entrenched in the Chase system at this point. I also use Priority Pass lounges and restaurants multiple times a year. The rental car insurance is a pretty big one for me. They paid out $350 last year for a windshield that cracked overnight during temp changes. But the bigger value from the rental insurance came from avoiding paying for insurance. For a 2 week rental in a foreign country, it would have cost me over $1000 from the rental agency for insurance with a $2k+ deductible and lots of exclusions, vs the reserve's $0 deductible and minimal exclusions.

Destroying Priority Pass like Amex did and/or messing with the travel insurances (like Amex also did last year) would really have me figuring out how to spend down my 400k+ UR points. Same problem if they reduce the $300 travel credit.

I mean, nobody likes higher fees, but an awful lot of people are looking at this the wrong way. An increase of $100 should not yield some kind of analysis of the new perks "vs." the $100 increase (or even the $75 net increase if the travel credit goes up).

The analysis remains: what net value do I GET from this card, and can I get that net value from others? I bank well over 100k UR pts in the Chase environment each year, and at worst redeem $1500 in value through the portal. I often redeem more efficiently if my plans involve a travel partner that I can transfer to (i.e.- I've spent 5k/night at Hyatts that would otherwise cost nearly $200). All of that for what was $150 net, and seems likely to become $225 net. So the question becomes: does another card setup match that value? I think the answer is no. If there is, with the same ease of use, I'd happily jump.

AMEX's perks don't align because their travel perks are items that I don't generally spend on, whereas Chase's is super easy to use. And I don't use Uber enough for that credit to be worth it either, it's a waste.

$550 likely, but travel credit is likely going to increase to $325 to match USBank Altitude's. Could be worth for folks with Lyft Membership and Dash Pass, but $75 still would be too much for me to pay.

I will just stick with my INK business preferred and USBANK Altitude (Net combined AF $170) and downgrade CSR to Freedom.

It still shows $450 on their application page. It's worth it for me there but not $550.

Same here. I pay $450 for a metal card not worth it for $550. I might as well go with AMEX platinum and be more prestigious at the same time.

No seriously though, the $300 travel credit basically covers part of my EZ Pass toll charges during the year. The rest are perks which I gain in UR points. Hoping for an increase in travel credit and other additional perks. I've had the card since 2016. I heard there is a new design for the card coming as well.

It's nice they are throwing these new benefits at you, but I'll most likely only use Lyft and Dashpass maybe 5 times in the next two years. Not worth the extra $100 for me. I'll definitely consider downgrading my CSR if they increase the fee. You can have multiple Freedom Cards, correct? A few years ago I downgraded my CSP to a Freedom. Then I'll possibly keep my Chase Business Ink now.
