Getting a Sapphire

Postby jriley » Thu Dec 20, 2012 3:48 pm

Hey there! I'm an eighteen year old. I own my own business, am on my way to college, and decided to stop using my debit card, since I don't want cash taken from me.

Have had an American Express Zync card for a couple of months now, applied for a Chase Sapphire, and was approved! Card should arrive in the next couple of days.

Anything I should know about it? Is it metal?

The Chase Sapphire Preferred card is metal, that I know. Is your business successful money wise? I'm 22 and just started my own business.

Yes, business is successful. I have had it for eight years, however. But thanks for asking.

I found out I have a $5,000 credit limit, and they have expedited the card's limit. The customer service was exceptional, although a single call is not exactly a good sample size.

I believe it's his website in his signature. Not a bad interface, Mr. Riley. Do you produce your own content or aggregate?

It's all our own content.

My Credit Offers is my newest business. In fact, I need some writers! I live in a sheltered world of AmEx, and don't know much about secured and student credit cards.

But it's one of a couple of my businesses.

I'm not one to go about doing people's work for them, but the facts you have in there are just plain wrong.

It appears you have a lot of facts on the Chase Sapphire PREFERRED instead of the regular Sapphire. For example:

Chase Sapphire is plastic, not metal (CSP is metal)
Chase Sapphire has a 3% foreign transaction fee (CSP has no foreign transaction fees)
AMEX BCE ($20,000), Citi Forward ($6,800), Discover IT ($5,250), BoA Travel Rewards ($1,800)
