No joke.

You can build credit with the Macy's card and get a discount of X, or build credit with a card like Sapphire Preferred and get the equivalent of thousands of dollars in redemption value.

CMIIW, but you likely did not get "thousands of dollars" off your Macy's purchase.
it sounded like a joke and i did have something else in mind :) but ur right i did not get what i couldve got with SP, BUT some its not that simple always just "to get" a card, im working on building a good credit history so i can start applying for cards and get worth out of them instead of getting denied everytime

Though it obviously differs for each person, I remember reading on here that people (more than a one) with very new/short credit history have gotten approved for CSP. Too lazy to find it.

If you don't have credit it might be worth it.

I would say it is worth it - as you basically will get approved.
You might need to prove income or that sort, but department stores are easy to get approved for someone that doesnt have credit...

Either way this is getting off topic
