I got that limited edition plastic Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card

I'm kidding. Well, not really. I did get a plastic version of Chase's new Sapphire Reserve card in the mail. But it's only temporary until Chase can get more metal cards printed (upon which they'll just send me another card). Demand for this card has been so high that they actually ran out of the material to print the card. Does that normally happen? Crazy.

Haha, I want to know who approved the animated GIF in the beginning of this article about the Chase Sapphire Reserve card. News about this amazing credit card has been making the rounds lately and I really am considering it for myself. The annual fee is high -- $450 -- but the perks easily seem to outweigh the upfront cost of the card itself. Plus, for somebody who travels a lot, the application fee credit for Global Entry or TSA Pre-Check seems like a great deal. What I'm really waiting for is a few things to line up so I can spend that $4000 in the first 3 months so that I can get that insane 100,000 point bonus. I think I can do it.
