Yeah I don't understand why people are complaining about keeping their Visa, or if they manage to switch to WMC, continue to complain because it's not a WMC Preferred.

You're going to cancel the card anyway due to annual fee, and the goal was to get another 50k bonus, so why does it matter?

Good point!  I guess I didn't think it through because I just was expecting different results.
Would I would have to move all my points to my freedom card first?  Should I first try to transfer the credit line and then deal with the mastercard app?

Did anyone spend 3k on the converted MC to see if it gives the bonus again?

Yes, and yes.

Really? You converted a SP Visa, spent 3k, got 50K, then switched that card to a SP MC, spent another 3k, and got another 50K?

UPDATE:

I or approved for the VISA preferred and my old VI preferred that was suppose to get changed to MA preffered came as a reg. MasterCard. Escalated this to top people.. Will report.
(the last rep said that they can change visa to MasterCard at any time but from reg to preffered it's illegal within 12 months. You can't change the product. I asked her how did the previous rep change my old visa preffered... She had no idea and said it was illegal... Seems like we have a bunch of incompetents as well...)

My sapphire PREFERRED MasterCard Is arriving in the mail tomorrow
So now I have a visa preferred and MasterCard preferred. :)

Your spending on the converted SP? or the one that you just signed up for?

update: after converting my first SP visa to WMC, called chase recon today twice to get a new SP Visa opened .  First call ended in a  quick "no can do" since (of course) cardholders are not allowed to have two of same cards (all DDFer's know that!). 

Promptly hung up within five seconds, hit redial and got reconsidered and approved for a new SP visa in less than 5 mins! looking forward to another round of 50k UR point bonus!!

Well after I tried and tried  reocn still kept on telling me that it's impossible to have more than one type of SP so  I finally took compddd's advice
Yeah I don't understand why people are complaining about keeping their Visa, or if they manage to switch to WMC, continue to complain because it's not a WMC Preferred.

You're going to cancel the card anyway due to annual fee, and the goal was to get another 50k bonus, so why does it matter?
I closed my SP visa moved over the credit line to my freedom and got them to give me a SP mastercard.  It's not exactly a churn but it's the closest I've come so far.  Thank you everyone for your help.
The cherry on top was that when I was approved for the mastercard they gave me new credit and I didn't have to use the cl from my freedom.  I guess it's bal taschis to let a 15k cl sit on one card and I ought to apply for some new cards soon.
