New Chase Premium Credit Card? Rumors of Sapphire Reserve Confirmed

I originally published this post a couple weeks ago but have updated it today (8/16/16) to reflect the latest news.

There were rumors flying around the internet about a new premium travel credit card to be released by Chase on August 21, 2016 called the Sapphire Reserve. The rumors now look to be confirmed.

Doctor of Credit has published screenshots of what bankers have already been told about the new card. Frequent Miler also said his own banker confirmed existence of the Sapphire Reserve.

Devaluations Make Korean and Singapore Miles Relatively Better for Premium Awards

Korean Airlines releases the most First Class award space of any airline for a fantastic First Class product. All five possibilities are fully flat beds. Korean miles are the main way to book Korean First Class. (Delta miles cannot book partner First Class.)

Singapore Suites is even more luxurious, possibly the most luxurious First Class in the world, and the only one that allows two suites to be combined into a flying double bed. Singapore miles are the only way to book Singapore Suites.

In my mind, the problem with Korean First Class and Singapore Suites is the cost.

Anatomy of An Award: $1,200 Hawaii Flight for 17,500 Miles

I just booked myself a $1,233 economy flight from Hawaii to Chicago for 17,500 Singapore miles and $5.

You probably already have the miles I used, so you're only a 10 minute phone call away from a trip to Hawaii that costs thousands of miles fewer than it "should."

The basic idea is that you don't want to use United, American Airlines, or Delta miles to fly to Hawaii. You want to use their planes, but you want to book those flights with miles issued by foreign airlines, which for whatever reason, offer far cheaper award prices to

Better Card: Citi Prestige vs. Executive AAdvantage

Recently I reviewed the improved offer on the Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ MasterCard®, which now offers 60,000 bonus American Airlines after spending $5,000 in the first three months.

The Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ MasterCard® offers American Airlines lounge access, but comes with a $450 fee.

One Person Can Open Four Cards and Fly Six Roundtrips to Hawaii

You wouldn't like Hawaii... unless you like pristine beaches, beautiful hikes, and 80 degree weather. Hawaii is my favorite place in the world. (A few of my photos are sprinkled through this post.)

If Hawaii is your favorite place, or if you've always wanted to take a family vacation there: one person can easily earn enough miles to book 6 economy roundtrip awards to Hawaii or nearly 4 First Class roundtrip awards.

There are two basic ideas:

You don't need many Singapore Airlines miles to get to Hawaii on United flights.
