One of the most talked about features of Apple Card has nothing to do with the actual rewards, software, or privacy features of the card. If everyone is an agreement about one thing when it comes to Apple Card, it's that the physical titanium card is gorgeous. But, a lot of people don't know that Apple Card isn't the only credit card on the market made out of a metal. They're actually more common than you might think, and they also have impressive benefits and user experiences to back their satisfyingly indestructible design so you'll know you're earning solid rewards when you swipe or tap that solid-as-a-rock card.
Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card
When it comes to travel cards, it's hard to beat this signup bonus, even if it is comes on one of the most bendy metal cards. Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. That's equivalent to $750 toward travel when you redeem through the Chase Ultimate Rewards® program. Always get 25% more value when you redeem for airfare, hotels, car rentals and cruises through Chase Ultimate Rewards®. There are absolutely no blackout dates or travel restrictions for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card.

This metal card does give the Chase Sapphire Preferred® card a run for its money.
