Why BestCashCow Likes

Those who have a Chase Sapphire or a Chase Ink Business Preferred card.

Why BestCashCow Likes

A strong and reliable cash back card that delivers 1.50% back in all categories, but becomes especially strong when you also hold a Sapphire or Chase Ink Preferred card and use the card for 1.5 Chase Ultimate Rewards points instead of the 1.50% cash back.

    This is my go-to card and has been for years. I transfer my points to a Sapphire Preferred card that I keep for $95 a year so that the points are more valuable, but most of the spend goes on here. It ordinarily earns 1.5x and that is great. The drugstore and restaurant 3x is now better than the Preferred's 2x so I use it at those places now. If I ever use Lyft again, I will use it there now too. Too bad the grocery benefit is only for new cardholders.

    This is a great card. It gives me 1.50 points per dollar. I can redeem that at 1 penny a point, but since Chase's transfer partners are so good, I am always better off transferring points to either my Sapphire Reserve card or my Chase ink business card. Some bloggers call these three cards the Chase trifecta. I am not so big of the trifecta because most of my business expenses go to the Amex Business Blue, but I am big on Freedom Unlimited and Sapphire Reserve.
