Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card vs. Capital One Venture Credit Card

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card and the Capital One Venture Credit Card both have made a few waves in the ocean of rewards credit cards recently.

Why I Credit Card Fasted

There are numerous ways to accrue travel rewards fast, and many people will fall into more than one of these categories.

Daddy Warbucks Type A: You buy expensive flights and book expensive hotel rooms which earn exponentially more travel rewards than booking cheap flights and accommodation.
Daddy Warbucks Type B: You spend tons on credit cards organically, whether that be personal use, through your business, or both.
Manufactured Spender: You figure out ways to increase your spending for a fee that doesn't outweigh the value of the rewards you're earning.
Road Warrior: You travel for business, get to charge paid

New Chase Rule: Only One Sapphire Bonus Per 48 Months

Yesterday Chase made it harder to get repeat bonuses on the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card by changing the terms and conditions of the card offers.

NEW CHASE RULE: Only One Sapphire Product Per Customer

Today we learned of a new rule enforced by Chase regarding their Sapphire products. Applicants will not be approved for another credit card in the Sapphire family if they already have one open. These are Chase's Sapphire branded credit cards:

Sapphire
Sapphire Preferred
Sapphire Reserve

This rule will only affect applicants moving forward and should have no affect on the cardmember status of existing cardholders.
