You were there IIRC :D
Still don't have all the details, but I can say that Chase will still have a separate CO and UA card for the time being...
They said that in the email of merger updates. CO OPP will continue to earn miles in the new MP program in 2012.

Is that the other leak?

Both...

Dan, (no offense, but) can we get an honest (unbiased) answer on this one:

Do you think the new offers will be as churnable as the recent BA or as churnable as previous CO/UA?

I don't see why CO/UA should be unchurnable like BA just because a new offer is coming out?

Better offer might mean they'll be more strict, why not?

I don't think so.  And I definitely don't expect anywhere near a 100k offer.

HI
I am not familiar with Southwest at all , went to site and see you can redeem points for gift cards at about $0.01value , I never use miles for gift cards etc as I use them for international travel only--but 50,000 points is $500.00 gift card ( net $400.00) after fee ---- could not find any other airline partners - do they have any ???--also do not see a way to transfer points to a hotel or use partner airline

So what are you expecting.  Better than the 50k offers that ppl are still getting matched to?

I'm not expecting that.  Hope I'm wrong though.
I got the impression more that we're going to see some new benefits and look for the card though along with an improved offer.  I just don't think they will improve the signup offer too much.

But wouldn't that be a new card, so it wouldn't be a problem churning?

I've churned dozens of CO and UA cards without a problem.  Not sure why that would change.
