Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan Chase, told the attendees at an investor conference that the new Sapphire Reserve credit card is “doing great”. At the same time, he notes that one negative aspect of its popularity is the high cost of acquisition. In the fourth quarter, the card will reduce the company’s profits by roughly $200 million. To the passive observer, these two statements may seem at odds. The cost for this single credit card seems astronomical, yet senior officers view it as performing well. The answer: user behavior. In the end, cardholders will likely bring down the overall maintenance cost of this product. The Reserve, like many other rewards credit cards, can be profitable for the issuers. On average, cardholders will not be using all the rewards and benefits their cards offer to their fullest potential.
