$300 annual credit - Something I touched on previously, and it is still a part of the Chase Sapphire reserve card benefits. This is something you get back every single year when you’re using the card. If you subtract that from the annual fee, it will leave you with a fee that’s $250, which is not bad at all, and we’re still not through all the benefits. One thing to note is there are so many types of transactions that count as travel related, I encourage you to read the fine print, but I have gotten reimbursements for hotels, taxis, uber, trains, flights, etc.
Complimentary priority pass. - Another thing I already mentioned that they still have, and it’s a great benefit. Even if you only travel once a month, this is a great option to make use of, because if your airport has a lounge, you can pretty much skip the food costs related to waiting for the airplane, since most lounges have free snacks and beverages. From my experiences, I can say that their snacks can easily equate a full meal, and that’s something you get for free while waiting comfortably at the airport. They have small sandwiches, a wide variety of beverages, and it’s generally been awesome.
You can do the math for yourself here. Say you go to the airport only once per month, and it saves you the cost of two drinks and a meal. Multiply this by 12 months, and you will see that this is a huge savings just by itself.
