It seems it is targeted because I got the same email to switch to the unlimited but without the $50 bonus

Is it worth the switch if you use the 5x here and there?

Would they do a new credit pull by the switch?

Assuming you can take out 0.015 per point you'll have to spend approx. $675 in bonus categories to earn $50

Question is if can switch back after a while?

Should be pretty easy to switch back.

These are in my opinion a replica of each other as you see they even offer you the ability to swap cards.
Just curios why the came out with the unlimited? My guess is they want to stop the freedom (plain) and stop sign up availability. Or I have no clue why they are offering 2 the same cards with each having there own benefit, if you always carry both cards you can maximize by swiping the right one at the right time.

Would then make sense why they started the unlimited, and try to veer people away from the 5ppd.

I don't think they're looking to do that, the two cards really complement each other.

Didn't they stop the free ink with 5ppd!? Or im mixing up cards?

Are you reffering to the legacy freedom or the 5ppd on up to $1500 with rotating categories freedom?

No, what ink or business did they stop allowing to apply for?

Ink plus, nothing to do with either freedom card.

what was the reason they were stopping that card? Did they not have a reason? Didn't mean to connect it to the freedom only that it had 5ppd.(i thought they wanted to stop that or I though I read somewhere something to that effect.)

They never give reasons for these things but it could be they didn't want to keep giving 250k UR to people each year.

Probably true. Did you know that the 5% freedom isn't available in branch anymore?

If they wanted to get rid of it they would have, I don't think they want to, I think they added it as another good option for many people for everyday spending.

Why take away the ability to apply in bank? Is that common?

Probably because they want to promote the FU, not sure why...

I'm not sure why they did that, it could be to keep the number of cards to a minimum, most people aren't DDFer's you know

They've been promoting it like crazy, I've seen an inordinate number of mailers for it (none to me, I guess I have too many chase cards already )

Don't know why, but I happen to take a sibling of mine to get his first credit card in the branch, and while there I said why not apply for the chase unlimited, so I went ahead and applied and never heard back from them till today.(meaning don't think I will.) is it normal not to receive any mail or notice about being declined?
 Wonder if I can still call for recon now a few mnths later or the application is closed?

You could call recon but your app is probably long gone by now. You're not past 5/24?

Freedom/united/ba(closed in the summer)/amazon(doubt that's counted)/Personal gold amex..
 And some store cards like amazon/ebay/paypal/priceline....
And an AU on a ink business(on 2 different business ink cards I'm a AU) /saffire/freedom/  ..... but with leaving the AU on the side I don't think I'm over 5/24... I would have to have some time to kill to bypass the AU I'm on.

Amazon probably does count and you'll have a hard time getting them to not count all those store cards, can't hurt to try though. If you are, go for the CSR while it still has 100k in-branch.

Definitely worth a try, was planning on flying in the coming weeks so it would be a perfect idea to try to get approved. (great prices for domestic travel,with hybrid.)
