Chase Sapphire Reserve Annual Fee – Worth It or Not?

The 100,000 point sign-up bonus from the Chase Sapphire Reserve is the highest public bonus I’ve ever seen on a card that earns Chase Ultimate Rewards points.  But the card has a $450 annual fee.  And it’s NOT waived the first year.

Thank you for the question, Rather B.  And thanks to your son for his service!

American Express cards are a good pick if you are in a similar situation.  That’s because American Express will waive credit card fees for members of the military, like late fees and over-limit fees!
