What Chase Ultimate Rewards has over Membership Rewards

I recently wrote a post about some of the Strengths Membership Rewards has over Ultimate Rewards. Of course, Ultimate Rewards is also a terrific currency to collect and one that has many strengths of its own. Whereas some of Amex’s greatest strengths lie in partner sweet spots, Chase’s strengths over Membership Rewards mostly lie within the card portfolio itself. That’s not to say that Chase doesn’t have transfer partners with award chart sweet spots — just…

Sapphire Reserve vs Preferred

Last week, I wrote a post about considering which ultra-premium credit cards to keep (those with annual fees of $350 or more). That post inspired Greg to make an awesome spreadsheet for evaluating your ultra-premium cards (See: Your turn: Which Ultra Premium Cards are Keepers?). I initially set out this week to do a similarly mathematical analysis of my current collection of premium cards — those with annual fees around $100. I played with spreadsheets…
