In a couple more months, I’ll be mercifully under 5/24, which means I’m looking at the best Chase credit cards and wondering what I’ll open, as if ordering off a menu. Chase hasn’t been a possibility for so long, it feels a bit like starting over.
It kinda is. I’ll get to retool my card arsenal – and that got me thinking about what’s worth getting – and what to skip (or cancel if it comes to that).
Upon reflection, I realized there are 3 ways to approach Chase cards:
- Focus on personal cards (especially Ultimate Rewards cards)
- Focus on small business cards
- Go for the Southwest Companion Pass
Not to say any of these paths is absolute. I find that generally, peeps have certain travel goals in mind before they start applying, myself included.
And of course, you can mix and match. Here are the ones to start with.
Then you can fill-in around the edges with cards from other banks.
