Chase sapphire Preferred
Will you earn Ultimate reward points when shopping outside of the US.
Yes. I applied for it just before an overseas trip (Italy and Switzerland) last year as I knew I’d easily make the sign-up bonus by using it during our vacation. I also got the bonuses for travel and dining.
Additional point in its favor when traveling overseas is no foreign transaction fees.
Yes, you will earn UR overseas.
On a related note I wish they’d dump the 2x points on hotels you get with the Ink Plus (which has no FTFs) and replace it with the 2x on restaurants the Ink Cash (which does have FTFs) has. Then I could dump the CSP (or more precisely, downgrade it to a second Freedom card) and avoid the $95 AF. The only reason I keep it is for the dining bonus overseas with no FTFs. I’m sure this is a conscious decision on Chase’s part because they know it means they can get two $95 AFs out of people that travel overseas a lot.
