I just found these forums and well, it's a bit overwhelming! I started a points plan about a year ago and thought I was doing well with over 72k points but you all make me look like a complete amateur! So, late last year I decided I wanted to start traveling more as I had kind of taken a break. Chase Sapphire card was in high rotation on TV adds and it looked good so I got one. Now this is not a Preferred card afaik. I have a USair and Delta miles account with 34k and 12k respectively. Oh, i have a USair mastercard that I applied for with one of those inflight offers. I use the Chase card for almost everything, very little I don't put on it. I do not use the USair MC at all. Should I have the preferred card over my apparent generic one? I don't have lofty goals with this, but I do want more cheap travel! If any of this makes sense and anyone can start to steer me in a better direction it would be appreciated.
