If you didn’t have enough miles to make the Capital One Venture Card mileage-matching offer worthwhile, here’s another one that might be of interest to you…
The Chase Sapphire Preferred card is offering a signup bonus of 40k points after you spend $3, 000 in the first 3 months. Bonus points are worth $500 toward airfare or hotel accommodations when you redeem for travel through Ultimate Rewards?. If you want a more expensive ticket, no problem – just pay the difference.
To qualify you need to apply for the card, get approved, and then spend at least $3k in the first three months. Note that this card has a $95 annual fee, but it’s waived for the first year. As far as ongoing rewards are concerned, you’ll earn two points per dollar spent on travel and dining at restaurants and one point per dollar spent on all other purchases.
