Last week, I wrote how Million Mile Secrets team member Keith was approved for the Chase Sapphire Reserve because of his Chase Private Client status.  He anxiously awaited the delivery so he could start taking advantage of all the Chase Sapphire Reserve rewards!

One week later, the card was delivered via UPS.  The Sapphire Reserve was in a regular envelope, as it seems Chase ran out of the special boxes they used to deliver the new cards.

What’s the Best No-Annual-Fee Credit Card for Military Personnel?

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!
