What are the real differences between the Chase Sapphire and the CSP? Are the rewards the same and does having the simple Sapphire along with Freedom & Chase checking help at all?
Having the CSP allows you to transfer those points into various loyalty programs like United, Hyatt, Marriott, etc. If you have Freedom points, you can transfer them into your CSP account, and then transfer those again into other programs. The normal sapphire can't do this, and is plastic instead of metal like the CSP.
Thanks so much for pointing that out!
I feel ok now with the AF. At first I was starting to regret going for the CSP because of the AF.
