Million Mile Secrets reader, Gia, writes:

Which card(s) have the most benefits for annual spending?  I spend more than $5,000 a month on credit cards these days, but I feel like I ran out of options for sign-up bonuses as I’ve had most of the cards in the past.

Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase British Airways, Which 1 Should You Pick?

UPDATE: The offer for the British Airways card in this post has expired.  But check Hot Deals for the latest offers!

For a limited time, there’s an offer to earn a total of 100,000 British Airways Avios points with the Chase British Airways card.  But you have to spend $20,000 on the card to unlock the full sign-up bonus.

With the Chase Sapphire Preferred card, you’ll earn 40,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after spending $4,000 on the card within the 1st 3 months of account opening, which is more manageable for most folks.  And Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer to British Airways Avios points (and other airline and hotel partners) at a 1:1 ratio.

So which 1 is a better choice?
