Live now in branch and by phone, not online. New apps or product change from other Chase cards, including Slate.
HT: DOC

However, (according to phone rep) no signup bonus for product change. Anyone going for it?

I'm sure its just speculation at this point, but does anyone think I'll be able to convert a Chase branded card (regular sapphire) into a Freedom Unlimited?

Would it make a difference if I currently have a regular Freedom?

Spoke to an agent on the phone about this card. She told me its the same sign up bonus as the Freedom but she said the if I got the bonus on the freedom in the last 2 years then i wont get the bonus on this card. Is that correct? She also confirmed that you can apply over the phone or in a chase branch.

I was thinking about getting the Chase Freedom Unlimited card as I found out you can get them in branches now. But, does it make more sense to sign up for this card directly with its measly sign-up bonus of $150/15,000 points or should I sign up for a card like Chase Sapphire Preferred and get a $500/50,000 point sign up bonus and then in a few months downgrade the card (assuming that's possible) so that there's no annual fee? Do any more experienced DDfers have any quick advice?

I was approved instantly after applying, when i logged into my chase account the card already shows up although I dont have the physical card yet. (That takes 7-10 days to arrive)

You never know if they'll have an increased signup bonus in the future. I was thinking to PC now and then switch away when I want to apply at a later time (when 5/24 will work out). Since technically it's not a new card and it's with no signup, I can't see why you'll need to wait 24 months from when you switched away.

My Chase Flexible Rewards Ė the Chase card I've had longest Ė finally got phased out. Since I already have Chase Freedom, they gave me two options:

Option 1. Free Product Change to Chase Freedom Ultimate, forego $150-$175 sign up bonus

Option 2. Combine Credit Line - close current Chase Freedom card, combine all/most of the credit line to one card (the one I've had for longer)

Which option would you recommend given:
ē I also have a CSP card
ē Not interested in applying for a new card or increasing my credit line right now.
ē I'm nowhere near maxing out my Chase Freedom 5% categories each quarter.

Shame because I just closed my no AF Sapphire card after I got a letter that it will be shut for no activity. I didn't want it to say closed by issuer so I quickly transferred the credit lines and shut it down.

If you have a business, get a business card with that info.
Or get a personal card with your personal info.

There's a United Club business card that gives 1.5 United miles per dollar. If you use alot of United miles, it's something to look into.

thanks, been using that for years, used to have a much easier time redeeming United miles and used mainly united miles, but now i find it harder and am using other miles more often so looking to change.

Many companies don't take Amex. Mainly want to stay in the chase family to take advantage of $0.15 value for travel with the Sapphire Preferred. Any other recommendations? At this point i'm leaning towards the ink business cash, not great. To make it a bit more confusing, we are in the real estate business, i'm looking to get a separate credit card for each of 14 properties.

Perfect timing - as the spg amex will no longer be useful as an everyday card, we were all going to the chase quadfecta anyway. This is just pure gravy.

So it's good for the next year. It's an everyday card, not a SUB card. At 3% UR, it's the best everyday card out there, pushing the spg and the Amex Blue Biz to the side. As it is - with the 1.5%, it was compelling for an everyday card. Now it's a no brainer

Didn't do the math myself, but according to DOC you need to spend 10k to break even with no SUB. Without msing it's not super compelling if you only use it for non bonus category spend. (Obviously depends how much you're spending in a year and which other cards you have with bonus categories)

Truthfully, you should be converting Sapphire cards into Freedom cards and not be applying for freedom cards.

That's always been my strategy and it means you would need to spend wayyyyyyyyyy more than $10K to make a 3x for a year offer with no SUB more compelling than that.

That's what I've been doing. why would someone apply for a freedom if you could get a bigger bonus with sapphire cards and just downgrade

From about 35k+ (assuming you PC the CSP to a CFU as soon as you hit 4k spend) you'd be ahead doing this. Which with A/A risk aside it may be a good deal for some select few. Of it has to be those who are trying to rack up UR at that time.

if you open a CSP, CSR and CIP and downgrade the preferred and reserve to CF and CFU you'll have an effective $245 in AF's and be left with at least 193,000 URP to be redeemed with a rate of at least 1.25 and that's before you maximize the freedom categories and your everyday spending on the CFU. So I'll go with dans advice

first of all we knew something was coming for months now exactly what was the question. Secondly even when the the starwood bonus went in a day we still got a days warning

@Dan id argue that this offer is awesome for anyone thats gonna spend 7.5k + before he/she can get a sapphire. for example my dad spends 6-7 k a month, cant get another sapphire for about 10 months, for me to tell him just use this card EVERYWHERE is huge. just my 2 cents

because ur is the easiest to use...so for someone thats under 5/24 and can get a sapphire,sub csp 55k now use this if spending 7.5 +, on regular fu will get you 22.5 from there and on this card is better... if after year you convert to csr you have a min roi of 4.5 which is awesome. plus no remembering which card to use where which a lot of regular folks forget. now which cards are better than this for regular folks ?

And btw itís 22.5 k...
Plus 55 k from csp. = 77.5 with 10.5 k spend and only the 3k needs to be in the first 3 months
I think this is by far the most compelling card(s) now, for people who open cards to keep them ex. Non ddfírs
And I will be recommending this to all who ask me for a good cashback/travelback card

$7.5K spend in year one:
DDMS route: $4K on CSP+ $3.5K on downgrade to CFU=55K+4K+5,250=64,250 with 1 slot used.
Abey route 1: $7.5K on CFU 3x=22.5K with 1 slot used.
Abey route 2: $4K on CSP+ $3.5K on CFU 3X=55K+4K+10,500=59,000 with 2 slots used.

Onwards 3x is the key you are missing...
many people spend more than that on cc a year and want cashback or travel back..
And this is the best duo at the moment.
Or offer up a better one ?

Good grief. Yes it's a good duo.
All I said on DDMS was to calculate which route is better. You claimed I was wrong with $7.5K. I am not.
If you want to change the number go ahead and plug it in to see which rotue is better.

ďHowever, if you will spend more than approximately $35,000 in your first year in non-bonused everyday spending, then you can do better with this new Freedom Unlimited offerĒ
And I am saying thatís itís valuable from 10 k and on, huge difference.
And makes life a lot simpler without making sure to know categories etc.
My point? You didnít promote this the right way as a simple very rewarding opportunity when paired with csp

the only difference between your idea and mine is under my plan you have to downgrade 1 more card by both of our plans 2 cards are being opened, and either the CSP is being downgraded or not depending on whether you don't want to pay an AF, just under my plan you're downgrading the CSR that's 1 more action to be taken. You can decide if that takes it from simplistic to "WAY too complicated"

If you don't care about your 5/24 number then you won't get approved for CFU3X anyway.
Therefore it's a moot point.
If you do care about 5/24 then it's only worthwhile if you're a big everyday spender.

I just remembered something that makes a difference; Chase recently hasn't been letting downgrading the Sapphires during the first year, so in the calculations we have to consider all spend for the CSP after 4k as 1ppd if getting CSP SUB.

That would make:
CSP - 24K spend: 55K/4K(50K SUB+5K AU)+20K/20K= 75K
CFU - 24K spend: 72k (@3ppd)+2.5k (AU) =74.5k

So it would take about 25k non-bonus spend during the first year to come out ahead with the CFU.

This will probably end up being my most lucrative bonus ever by the time I'm done in a year. They even gave DW a 50k cl to make it easy.

Hi,

I have a Sapphire Reserve, Freedom Unlimited, Freedom, Ink Cash Card in my wallet.
Why should I continue to use my current Freedom Unlimited Card with the old 1.5 points per dollar benefit?
Shouldn't everyone who has a Freedom Unlimited Card just open another one for the new terms?

Am I missing something??

Thanks In Advance!

What do you mean eligible for another card? Meaning the 5/24 rule? I should be good with the 5/24 rule however I just opened the Reserve Card a few weeks ago.

If you already have the freedom unlimited I don't think they will approve you for another one. Also the 3% is basically the new signup bonus not new terms on the card.
Another option would be the ink unlimited which has  50000 point bonus and gives you 1.5%

Chase is now offering 20,000 points for spending $500 as a new card member signup bonus. You can also receive 10,000 points for a referral. This offer is also available for the regular freedom card.

heres an interesting email i got:
starting 9/13/20 the unlimited card will earn 5% on travel, 3% on dining, as well as 3% on drugstore purchases. this may work with gc's in drugstores like cvs and the like. although if you have the ink card it cant beat 5% at office supply stores, but its still up there i guess.

I signed up for the Freedom Unlimited for the 5x Grocery. When I got my first statement it was just giving me the regular 1.5. I called to see why that was happening and the rep started telling me that there is no such thing as the 5x on grocery. I directed him chase.com where it clearly was still showing that this was the signup promotion. He said he will put a note in my account to make sure it gets updated. I just received a letter from chase telling me they are confirming that this promotion expired and will not be receiving the 5x on groceries.

Anyone else had this? Any tips on what I can do next?

I already have a Freedom Unlimited and only signed up specifically for this bonus.
