Chase Sapphire Preferred

Our Take

We love this card. The Chase Sapphire Preferred's huge 60,000 point sign-up bonus is worth roughly $750 in travel expenses. It's also got one of the smallest annual fees among similar cards. (Quite a bit smaller than the Sapphire Reserve). And its 2x points for travel purchases put it in the same conversation as the heavy hitter Capital One Venture Rewards Card.
