Any benefits of SP when you have Freedom 10 and 10?

Postby jack pot » Fri Aug 03, 2012 5:14 pm

I was thinking about adding another credit card to my arsenal. Thus far I have the chase freedom 10 and 10 along with a citi thank you. I am thinking about the chase sapphire preferred for the 40k bonus.

I have looked over 'The Complete Chase Rewards Points Strategy' and I didn't see any benefits to the sapphire other then the massive bonus; and possibly an advantage on larger purchases. Even after I hit my limit on 5% the 10 and 10 seems to make it the better choice. What do you think?

I think it depends on you. what do you use your cards for? do you like to shop at your mall , the gap, armonia exchange, club monoco, talbots ect do you use it for gas, the grocery stores, department stores like sears or sacks ect, restaurants, movies?

do you travel on business?

I travel for pleasure only. I did get this card. I'll have 65k points after I get my promotional points. It really does seem This card will only come in handy for larger purchases.

By Freedom 10 and 10 do you mean the bonus points that you get when you are a Chase checking customer? Never heard it called that before.
American Express: Blue Cash Preferred (groceries, 6%; gas, department store, 3%); Gold Delta SkyMiles (Delta Air Lines, 2 miles/dollar, free checked bag).
US Bank: Cash+ (utilities, phone, internet, restaurant, 5%; drugstores, 2%).
FIA Card Services: Fidelity Amex (everything, 2%); Fidelity Visa (everything, 1.5%).
Chase: Freedom (rotating, 5%); Amazon (Amazon.com, 3%); PriorityClub (IHG hotels, 5 points/dollar); Sapphire (not in use).

*All cards are registered with PriorityClub IDine program for 8 points/dollar at participating restaurants.

I just heard it called that for the first time today and had to double check that I receive it. This is the best explanation I've seen for how you put the "Chase Trifecta" into play.

Why did you stop using your sapphire? Do you not get enough bang for your buck with it?
