If you weren’t previously familiar with the Ultimate Rewards program, hopefully you now have a better handle on it and how to maximize it. And if you don’t currently have a card that’ll earn you Ultimate Rewards points, consider applying for the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, which is currently offering a sign-up bonus of 60,000 points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first three months from account opening. You’ll then earn 2x points per dollar spent on dining and travel purchases and enjoy an array of additional perks like travel protections and primary car rental coverage, all for an affordable $95 annual fee.
