Chase Ultimate Rewards are some of the best reward points for travel, with the Sapphire Preferred being our choice for the best beginner travel rewards credit card. Just remember if you are planning on applying for any of these cards, you need to understand the rules of credit card applications, so you don’t fall foul of any of the major pitfalls like Chase’s 5/24 rule.
