100,000 Bonus Points

January 10th, 2017 at 12:19 am

Currently Chase Sapphire Reserve is offering 100k bonus points if you spend 4k in 3 months. I can do that with no problem because school tuition due in February.The points equals $1500 travel value or $1000 in cash The kicker is that there is a $450 annual fee. However before you stop reading in your tracks, here are the main benefits that offset that fee. 1. You get a up to $300 statement credit for any travel purchases (flights, hotel, cruise, rental car, etc...). 2. You get a $100 credit if you apply for the Global Entry program. This program includes TSA Pre-check (which is $85 by itself) and expedited custom procedures as well. So with that in mind, the annual fee is only $50.

I will be completing my doctorate degree this year and plan to complete quite a few celebratory trips. As of now, I'm going to Cancun in July, Africa in September, and Hawaii in December.

With all of this in mind, would you apply for the card??

    I think that sounds like a very nice deal for your situation with travel! I'd go for it.

    I'm with creditcardfree - if you're going to be doing it anyway, why not? I'd also mention that we do a decent amount of traveling and last year used Swagbucks when purchasing our honeymoon package (through Groupon) and airfare/packages for two other trips through Expedia - and earned over $200 in Amazon gift cards. Paid for a big chunk of our xmas presents. If you ever use either for booking (and they may have other applicable sites), it's pretty much free money.

    I used to do swagbucks but phones starting freezing up and it became to much of a pain.
