If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

sure you can get that
 if you mean to say that you only have the regular Sapphire then you can just upgrade it.

It seems from @Mr. CC comment above that UR points from a sapphire preferred/reserve is more valuable then regular sapphire points. Why is that? I know points are worth 1.5 cents if redeemed through Chase but wouldn't that work with any UR points as long as you have the card?
