I don't think the $450 annual fee is waived the first year, so that essentially makes the additional 50K points over the Sapphire Preferred bonus a wash. (Not completely, especially if redeemed for travel.)

Don't know if that's why the Thumbs Down. Still a good deal and I appreciate knowing even though I will not apply. I had a hard enough time spending $4k these last 3 months for the Sapphire Preferred!

Thanks anyway, OP.

Does the annual fee count towards the $4k in 3 months?

not at all.

Because you also get $600 in travel credits the CSP doesn't give you.

Plus $100 in TSA/GE credit the CSP doesn't give you.


So you're already $250 ahead of the annual fee before you even get to the 100,000 UR points, the higher value having this card gives you for the points using the portal vs CSP, the Priority Pass membership with free guests you don't get with CSP, the higher reward rate for travel and restaurants over CSP, etc....

It's $300 per calendar year, depending on when your last statement closes in that year. The $600 figure assumes you're going to cancel the card after the first year, to get more value to offset the annual fee.

Basically, let's say your statement closing date is the 20th of each month. You use your $300 travel credit sometime before Dec 20th 2017, and then after Dec 20th but before Jan 20th, you use the 2018 travel credit. Before Jan 20th, you then cancel your card to avoid 2018's annual fee.

One addendum- You have 30 days after the annual fee to get a full refund, so you'll have at least 2 months to use the second credit without actually paying a second annual fee

(and if you DO pay a second annual fee you will get yet ANOTHER $300 credit after your Dec statement closes.... so it's really only a $150 annual fee, for which you get a much better card than the $95/yr CSP)

Have both CSP and Reserve, each has benefits, but the sign up bonus makes it very much worth it, the actual fee is only 150 because a total of up to 300 travel credit applies after each travel charge (subway, gas, toll charge, tickets, etc.) one of the best credit cards out there right now, so popular that Chase had to issue plastic ones due to an extremely high demand

considering the thread is like 640 pages already dont know why this is a massive thumbs down

100$ towards 5 year TSA precheck(or global entry)
300$ yearly travel credit
the rewards are a bit higher i think it wasa 1:1.5
100k points after 4k spent which is like 1500$ worth of travel

I figure if the card was horrible, then why would the other thread be so huge.
