Chase Sapphire Preferred is my new credit card of choice!

I just got my card in February.  I signed up to take advantage of the signup offer  of 50,000 FREE Bonus Points!

50,000 Points is the equivalent of $625 to spend on travel – flights, hotels, car rentals, activities, and even cruises!

All I had to do was spend $4,000 in the first 3 months from account opening.

I charged everything on that card, my car lease payment, utility bills, groceries, etc.  I also asked a friend if I could charge a $500 purchase on my card that they were already planning on making with cash.  He just gave me the cash.

It was really quite easy for me to get to the required spend.


There’s is NO ANNUAL FEE for the first year


Earn 2X points for travel & dining!

In addition, you can earn FREE points for referring others to sign up for the card (just like I am here).  For each person that successfully applies, you’ll get another 10,000 points, or $125 to spend on travel.

Obviously, I think it’s well worth it and want you sign up for the card!  🙂

This card is a perfect example of how I NEVER pay for airfare! NEVER!


Here’s how you can SAVE HUGE on hotels too
