A credit card that got demands so overwhelming that the manufacturer ran out of raw material in just a few days.
The Chase Sapphire Reserve Card is made of metallic alloy
The card captivates customers due to its high-end, high-fee, high-reward card made of a metallic alloy. It gives the card an elegant and satisfying look. Just two weeks of being introduced, The Chase Sapphire Reserve Card has become the hottest card on the market. It carries a hefty $450 annual fee.
Lauren Francis, the spokeswoman said that Chase has approved tens of thousands of applications for the card. Customers are currently being issued temporary plastic cards because the demand has been so high that Chase ran out of the alloy, whose composition is a trade secret.
So why Chase card?
When customers meet certain spending target, Chase offers a 100,000-point sign-up bonus. These points can be worth up to $1,500 in travel rewards. The best part of it, it can also be converted to hotel or airline points that could secure a dreamy hotel or a first-class ticket.
Chase Sapphire Reserve Card has the best offers for travelers and dinners
The card has generous points-earning program, with triple points on travel and dining, and gives access to airport lounges.
The card’s metal composition is also clearly part of the appeal.
