If you are looking for a review of the JP Morgan Reserve card, you’re in the right spot.
However, it may be more elusive than you think….
Formerly known as the JP Morgan Palladium card, this unbelievably heavy metal credit card is now known as the JP Morgan Reserve card.
In the travel rewards credit card space, this is the equivalent of the famous American Express Black (Centurion) Card.
In nearly every way but the design and rarity, this card is the same as the Chase Sapphire Reserve.
The JP Morgan Reserve card includes an annual United Club membership.
The annual fee is the same as the Sapphire Reserve as well.
This card is available to Chase Private Bank clients, only. That means you will need over 10 Million dollars in assets with Chase.
Now, you may know someone with one of these cards that doesn’t have $10 million with Chase. That would be because when it was the Palladium card, mere Chase Private Client customers could apply. But no longer…
If you are reading this, the odds are that you can’t get a JP Morgan Reserve card. If you do have the $10 million in assets with Chase, just give your Private Banker a call!
Otherwise, you may need to look at applying for the Chase Sapphire Reserve instead… for now.

The Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express is a well-rounded card offering no annual fee and cash back on three key spending categories, including on online purchases. If your focus is on maximizing your earnings towards pure cash back (as opposed to travel rewards), the Everyday Card is a solid option worth considering.
If your spending aligns with purchases at U.S. supermarkets, U.S. gas stations, or U.S. online retail (who doesn’t shop at online retailers?) — and cash back is your main objective from a credit card — then this becomes an even easier decision. That’s because the Everyday Card earns 3% cash back on these three categories, up to $6,000 per calendar year in purchases in each (then 1%). In addition, the Everyday Card offers a statement credit with several merchants including select streaming services and Home Chef, a rarity for a card with no annual fee (enrollment required).
Of course, it pays to consider other options, including this card’s sister product, the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express and the no-annual-fee Capital One SavorOne Cash Rewards Credit Card. Both of these cards may offer slightly more cash back depending on your monthly expenses.
