Chase BA Visa now seems superfluous. Any reason to keep it?
Ben: Was able to capitalize on a 50k bonus points offer for Amex Premier Rewards Gold Card. It is especially appealing due to 3x on travel, 2x on gas and groceries and, as of June 1, dining. Plus they will start offering a $100 travel credit as of June 1 as well. All-in-all a great deal. However, I do not like to keep multiple cards (especially those with fees) unless they can be well utilized. Chase Sapphire Preferred is my go-to travel card for obvious reasons. But Chase BA Visa now seems superfluous. No category bonuses except 3X on BA tickets (which is now covered by Amex Gold Card) and Avios is devaluing at of 4/28. Other than 10% discount on BA tickets, I see no reason to keep it all. What do you think?
@ Jerry — There might not be much value for you in the card unless you value the 10% discount or the companion certificate after spending $30,000. A combination of the Chase Sapphire Preferred and Premier Rewards Gold Card might be a better match for you.
