Last week I wrote about how the Chase Sapphire Preferred card is basically the poor man’s Centurion card. Many of you could relate, having only recently signed up for the card. For those of you that have no clue what I’m talking about, the card feels really, really cool. It’s a totally different material than most, much “harder,” and the front is basically blank. So it attracts a lot of attention and I assume people mistake it for an uber-high end credit card, which is why I have to share this story.
I just went to Starbucks and as I was paying the [whatever they call people that work at Starbucks nowadays] goes “oh my God, is this one of those cards? This is the first one of these I’ve ever seen before, you’re a total legend.”
Honest question — how do you respond to that?
a) “Yeah, it is one of those cards, and it came with my Maserati, which is parked outside. Wanna see?”
b) “No, I’m just pretending to be rich, the card doesn’t even have an annual fee.”
Or any other responses?
Don’t get me wrong, having the card is actually a bit of a nuisance, since people are always commenting about it. But it’s oh-so-entertaining to see what people say/assume.
