                                I have really enjoyed using this card. I just made minimum spend and got the bonus. I like the available transfer partners, and will use the points well. The benefits have also been good to me, although I have found better prices on Kayak than the Visa Infinite Avis portal. The card works well, and the metal is a great extra. It will remain at the front of my wallet for a long while to come.

                                100k offer is amazing. UR points are also very useful. Even if you don’t want to deal with all the points, you can redeem them for travel at 1.5c/point with this card.

                                The bonus on this card is amazing, especially for only $5,000 in spend. I got it quickly. MS even works on this card for the most part. Be warned that not all the Visa Infinite benefits are available with this card. Also, Priority Pass Select ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. It works much better in Europe than in the US. GET THIS CARD IF YOU ARE UNDER 5/24! Also note the Chase Private Client members are exempt from 5/24

                                It’s a tremendous card, whose first year benefits are absolutely tremendous. I am going to be using this card until Chase comes out with something better, or Amex finally makes a real challenger to it.

                                I applied for this card the first day it came out publicly. (Not on the leaked link) I tried to get it expedited as I was leaving for a trip early the next week and they refused to, despite others promising expedition. I instead had to go to my branch and the manager couldn’t even get it expedited and she is a CPC staff member. I also didn’t get the full presentation box, but I did get the metal card.

                                After the initial set of fiascos, I made spend quickly and the bonus posted almost immediately after my statement closed. I now have a nice warchest of UR points for upcoming travel. I have used the Priority Pass once at CDG Star Alliance T1, and it worked fine there. I was disappointed to find out that it does not come with the full set of Visa Infinite Amenities.

                                Finally, the travel related credit functionality is fantastic. It posts immediately, and applies to almost everything.

                                This is an overall fantastic credit card.
