Compare it with the Chase Sapphire Reserve®
If you want to earn valuable travel rewards and take advantage of premium benefits, but you’re not a United Airlines loyalist, you may want to consider the Chase Sapphire Reserve®.
The Chase Sapphire Reserve® offers a lucrative sign-up bonus that’s worth $500 when redeemed for cash and gift cards, and $750 when redeemed for travel through Chase Ultimate Rewards™. Earn 50,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.
You can also transfer points at a rate of 1:1 to several airline and hotel loyalty programs, including United MileagePlus, British Airways Executive Club, Flying Blue Air France KLM, JetBlue TrueBlue, Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, World of Hyatt and Marriott Bonvoy.
Like the United Club℠ Infinite Card, the Chase Sapphire Reserve® offers an elevated rewards rate on travel and dining at restaurants. The card also comes with several travel benefits common to premium travel credit cards: a Global Entry, NEXUS or TSA Precheck credit, complimentary airport lounge access, trip cancellation/interruption insurance, auto rental collision damage waiver, lost luggage reimbursement and trip delay reimbursement.
Plus, the Chase Sapphire Reserve® offers up to $300 in statement credits each account anniversary as reimbursement for travel purchases that are charged to your card.
