Premium Mastercard....Recommendations?

Postby Kalzone » Wed Dec 29, 2010 12:12 am

So I was debating on getting a Chase Sapphire but I already have an American Express Gold Card that I use for when I fly. I"m looking for a premium Mastercard that can get me the most benefits. Not to sure what I'm looking for I just wish the Chase Sapphire wasn't something I sorta have with my AXP card.

any suggestions?

Why a preference for a premium Mastercard and not a comparable Visa? Both essentially have the same acceptance and hence, choosing one over the other due to their network association is irrational. It would be smarter to contemplate options for all Mastercard and Visa cards rather than limiting yourself to Mastercard.

The "premium" tier for MasterCard is the World Elite if you insist on it being a Mastercard.

Many of the standard benefits offered on the World Elite cards are comparable to the Visa Signature and American Express charge cards but there are some slight differences.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred
