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.
Folks might be wondering if the Chase Sapphire Reserve Annual Fee is worth it?
I think so! Because you can easily offset the annual fee with the credits and perks you’ll get.

Million Mile Secrets reader Rather B tweeted:
What’s the best first no annual fee card for my military son? Bag fees aren’t an issue. But $3,000 minimum spending to get the sign-up bonus may be hard.
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!
