The hottest credit card bonus we’ve seen over the past few months (and arguably ever) has been on the new Chase Sapphire Reserve. The card has been offering a bonus of 100,000 Ultimate Rewards points after spending $4,000 within three months.
Not only does the $450 annual fee card have a great sign-up bonus, but it also has a lot of long term perks that make the card worth holding onto, in my opinion. The card offers triple points on dining and travel, a $300 annual travel credit, a Priority Pass membership, the ability to redeem all your Ultimate Rewards points for 1.5 cents each, and much more.
Given the ability to redeem Ultimate Rewards points earned on the card at 1.5 cents each towards the cost of travel, that means the 100,000 points can be redeemed for $1,500 worth of travel. However, you can arguably get even more value out of those points by transferring them to one of the excellent Ultimate Rewards transfer partners, like Hyatt Gold Passport, Korean Air SkyPass, etc.
