    Chase Sapphire Reserve Card

    Misleading information on 50% redemption. READ BEFORE GETTING IT.

    If you are used to Chase Sapphire Preferred, you probably saw the 50% redemption and assumed a flight for $500 would be $250. After all, a $500 dollar flight on the chase sapphire preferred is $400 (i.e. 20% off). Well, it's not.

    Chase, unethically and misleadingly, says its 50% more in points. Technically, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is 25% more in point; that just equates to 20% off. The Chase Sapphire Reserve is 33% off the cost of the flight, but 50% more in points.

    If you are confused, so was I. A $500 dollar flight, for example, would cost $333.33 in points, NOT $250. They chose to misleadingly make it look like you get 50% off, like you get 20% off with the Chase Sapphire Preferred. I spend close to 50K a year on this card, I will never trust Chase again and not recommend this card to anyone.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
