The Chase Sapphire Preferred is arguably one of the best mid tier travel credit cards available. If you travel casually a few times throughout the year then the Sapphire Preferred is a must have.
This card earns Chase Ultimate Reward points by spending in a wide variety of categories, and those points can be redeemed for travel and other options. One of the best methods of point redemption is transferring points out to Chase Travel Partners like Hyatt, United, and others.
