Chase cards…

What is it about chase credit cards that people want them so bad? It seems the csp and freedom are the most wanted cards. Why is this?

In my wallet: AMEX Gold; Freedom $1.5k; CSP $5k; Chase United $5k; Discover $2k

Re: Chase cards…

They are Prime cards. Usually getting one means that you can consider your credit "OK!" or better.

 

At least, thats how I feel about them.

The ultimate rewards program is pretty good.  I have the old 10 &10 program and I get pretty good points with the Trifecta.

Also love the 5x rotating categories on Freedom, and with CSP you can combine the 5x from Freedom, transfer them to CSP, then further maximize the rewards by transferring them to hotel/airline points!

Capital One Quicksilver World Mastercard $10k | JCPenney Platinum $7.5k | Shell Drive for Five $800 | Chase Freedom Visa Signature $9.8k | TD Bank Easy Rewards Visa Signature $5k | Chase Sapphire Visa Signature $10k | American Express Blue Sky $25k | Discover IT $9.5k | SavingStar American Express $14.8k

Re: Chase cards…

Ultimate Rewards is probably the best and most flexible points system out there right now.  High sign-up bonuses with low annual fees.  Probably gives the highest starting limits outside of credit unions.  A couple of their cards are metal (hey, people are superficial).

 

Sapphire/Ink/Freedom paired together can bring in a ridiculous amount of reward points.  I want all 3, but I'm gonna have to wait a while.

Chase Sapphire Preferred - 5.6k (3/13) | Amex Premier Rewards Gold - NPSL (1/13) | Chase United MileagePlus Explorer Visa Signature - 9k (1/13) | Amex Delta Gold - 6k (9/12) | Citi Forward Visa - 10k (10/12) | Discover It - 2k (2/12) | Chase +1 Visa - $300 (2/11)

You may want / need a diversity of lenders in the future.  Trying incredibly hard not to get on my soapbox, but I'd point out you may be disavantaging yourself by this approach of kicking every institution you dislike in the slighest to the curb... you can't approach relationships like that and expect to get much of anywhere, perfect does not exist.

 

I can pretty much guaruntee Chase will annoy you at some point in the future as well.
