It is true that the $450 will be billed on the first statement, *but* if you work it right, you will get a total of $600 of travel *credits* before the second annual fee kicks in.

I just got this card. In fact I have 7 Chase cards. The UR points are the kicker on this one for me. On average UR points cost me .007 cents per point. In about a month I will post about how much I saved using UR points and other hotel points. I have been tracking it since Oct 15. With the UR points I will get about $2200 in travel benefits plus the $600-$450 net statement credit.

Since it is taken up front I decided to remove the card for DW. That saves $75 per year.
