Chase Freedom and Sapphire Preferred combo

Postby pac4toon » Thu Apr 17, 2014 6:43 pm

I know a lot of people here do the Freedom/CSP combo. How is it so far? Is it really good in racking up UR points? I am thinking of doing this because originally I just wanted to add my sister as an Authorized User on one of my cards to help build her credit. Then, I figured might as well add the Chase Freedom to the 'family' and have my sister as the AU for that card. I'll be hitting (2) birds with one stone- help my sister's credit and rack up some UR points since she frequents Starbucks, Lowes and of course the gas stations.

It is a good combo. CSP gives you 2% on restaurants but Freedom gives 5% this quarter. So they make a very good 1-2 punch to build points and transferring is seamless. If you have a Chase checking account all the better.

Go for it! Really is a fantastic way to rack up UR points if you take advantage of the rotating 5x categories on the Freedom. With Freedom alone you are pretty much limited to cash back/ gift cards and the like (as you know), but the point transfer to CSP takes literally seconds and that really opens up the value... This combo gets the vast majority of my spend lately.

Good luck! Let us know how you do.

If you have spend in the appropriate categories, yes.
