Chase Sapphire Preferred: 2 Points per Dollar on Dining and Travel

Chase Sapphire 2 Points Per Dollar Spent on Dining, Flights and Hotels
Receive 2x points for ALL dining and travel spend
We liked the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card as one of the Best Cards for Sign-Up Bonuses, with its 50,000  bonus points after $3000 spend within the first 3 months (some even got a bump to 100,000, although that deal is dead now). It has a $95 fee, but the fee is waived the first year, so there was really nothing to lose.
We like it even better now that it's offering 2 points per $1 spent on dining–so all you foodies out there (or if you simply hate cooking and eat out a lot) this is your card! Especially if you're a jetsetting foodie, since another card benefit is no foreign transaction fee.
Update: The Chase Sapphire Preferred offers 2 points per $1 spent on ALL travel (flights, hotels, taxis, trains, etc.) not just those booked through its Ultimate Rewards portal.
The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is also offering 2 points per $1 spent for hotels and flights booked via its Ultimate Rewards portal, so there is the potential for 2 points for flights and hotels as well. Caveat on the hotels though: they only seem to be searchable and bookable in conjunction with a flight search and booking, so if you're only looking to book a hotel or you need to book an all-inclusive hotel you should call an Ultimate Rewards travel agent at 1-866-951-6592.
Here are the detailed Terms and Conditions of Earning these points, with the relevant sections on dining and flights and hotels booked via Ultimate Rewards highlighted:

So, while it may be more hassle than it's worth trying to get double points for flight and hotel bookings, since only Ultimate Rewards bookings are eligible, the 2 points per $1 dining spend is a no-brainer and will prompt us to dust off the Chase Sapphire after collecting the bonus.
