    We already had it under my name but just signed my wife up to get the 100,000. That will give us close to 175,000 in ultimate rewards and 144,000 on Amex. A trip to Japan is the goal.

    Pretty sure that Jan 11 deadline is online apps only, you can still go to a chase location and apply there through March

That's a great coverage to replace expensive phones like iPhones.

    The $75 yearly fee is waived if you apply at a branch.
    Just hit the spending requirement on the Ink business card.

    So now the wife and I have over 300k chase points (100k x2 for the Reserve cards, 80k for the Ink Biz, plus the spend requirements).

    According to CBS, the 100k bonus expires tomorrow on 1/12.

    Card has really lived upto the hype thus far. I have not really explored the complimentary Priority Pass lounges at all though. Looks like there is one in international terminal D22 at DFW. Anybody been? Curious how it compares to the Centurion Lounges.

    The purchase protection saved me some coin recently when I had to return a piece of jewelry that the seller wouldn't take back after 30 days. Just got a call yesterday that they are cutting me a check as we speak. Just including the $300 travel credit and this return I am well past even on this card after only 4 months. That doesn't include the $1,500 in free flights. Since you really only making up $150 of the $500 annual fee, that right there pretty much makes this card free for me for almost another 10 years.

    Curious how it compares to the Centurion Lounges.
    I've used the one at LHR. Its pretty sparse and small. No view. but they had free food and drinks. Ill try the one out at EWR in April but I'm not holding out for much. This is a very small perk IMO.

    I've tried to use Priority Pass at 5 airports now and it's never in the terminals I'm in. So, that benefit is disappointing (for me)

    best use for priority pass is typically small-medium sized airports where there are no flagship carrier lounges, and smaller airport means the independent lounges are easily accessible without terminal or otherwise physical segregation.

    they contract with some flagship lounges in some certain airports, and some independent lounges are nice, but most wouldnt be characterized as nice.

    centurion lounges i put on par with a business lounge from a top Asian carrier (like Cathay's). better than anything domestic. a notch below First class lounges.

    Domestic Priority Pass sorta sucks, small lounges in oddball terminals with crap amenities. If you fly international, then Priority Pass has real value, the lounges are sometimes better than carrier lounges.
