Why does everyone want CSP?

Why does everyone want CSP?

All I see these days are Amex, Freedom and CSP!

 

Why is it everyone's goal lately to have CSP? Especially if you don't travel a lot... do the rewards transfer out to be better than Amex Costco 3% on Restaurants and 2% Gas or 1:1 or 1:1.5 you get with Navy Cash?

1. not everyone can get into Navy

2. Yes Freedom and CSP is overall MUCH better than Amex Costco.

 

Especially when with a Trifecta (checking + freedom + CSP all through Chase)

 

Chase checking + freedom = 10 points extra for any purchase average of 1 use a day would get you atleast $35 a year

 

freedom has 5% catagories which are nice then transfered over to CSP and used on travel = 20% bonus = 5% becomes 6% catagories.

 

Also CSP is one of the few cards that has a zero foriegn transaction fees for travel, a metal card looks sexy for most people's opinions, customer service is great (actually talk to a human from the begining)  and CSP also gives you a 7% annual bonus on CSP points earned through the year. (even already spent points)

 

CSP restaurant and travel is 2 points but with 20% more for travel and a 7% annual bonus = 2.57 points per dollar

Also the Ultimate reward malls are probably one of the best out of any credit card company.

 

So between getting  6 point out of 5% catagories with the combination +10 points extra + 7% bonus + 20% travel bonus it turns out quite nicely.

 

I also forgot to mention you can get upto $300 sign on bonus with Chase for checking, $100+ for Freedom , and 40,000 point bonus for Sapphire worth $500 in travel.

 

So that's $900+ bonus you can get just from signing up for the trifecta group.

I got so mad cause I got my credit up in July to 754 =\ and I found out I missed the BEST metal card in the industry the Palladium card =\ it weighs 4x more than the Sapphire card and costs about $1,000 in precious metals to create (23k gold and Palladium) supposed to be reserved for people who have $30,000,000 in liquid assets with Chase bank with a private banker, but turns out they weren't verifying in June -_-;

Why? Don't you get more points from Forward? 2.57 points vs 5 points???

yes and for 10k points you can get $50 cash back....18k points got me $180 cash back on my freedom. its easy to rack up points but they are not worth that much for cashback.
