What Would Martin Say?
Damn Gina! With 100,000 bonus points this card is the real deal – we simply have not come across a more lucrative signup offer on the market. However, you may want to slow your roll as the annual fee comes in at $450 (includes a $300 travel credit). So let’s net the two and find out if this card is worth $150 per year.
I Like The Way You Work It
No diggity. The Chase Sapphire Reserve has some pretty, pretty, pretty good rewards with 3X earned on travel, 3X on dining, and 1X on everything else. Curious about earning that 100K bonus? You’ll have to spend $4,000 within the three months of owning the card on top of the $450 annual fee. From there feel free to transfer those points directly to any major airline or deposit ‘em to your bank account for a cool $1,000. Straight cash homey.

For those frequent travelers out there, this card includes access to 900+ airport lounges globally, covers your $100 TSA Pre-Check or Global Entry application fee, and has no FX fees (shout out to our San Diego readers traveling to Tijuana). Another gem: the Reserve has a 50% bonus when you use their travel portal on all points earned. We checked out those prices and they match Kayak.com
We crunched the numbers and here’s our take; the Chase Sapphire Reserve should be in your wallet…but only for a year or two. The Chase Reserve is on another level via a nice bonus but is somewhat average in the time after. Thinking of keeping the card? We're in support of that as long as you book as much travel as possible through Chase. Dollar Dollar Bills Yall.
