Credit Cards / Sapphire Reserve New Annual Fee
« on: February 12, 2020, 10:03:29 AM »
So I opened my card in March and they marked my renewal date for April 1 which gives mte the new annual fee.

Is there anything I can do to be eligible for the $450 annual fee? Or am I out and now I have to pay $550?

if I keep the $450 I will be downgrading my card to the preferred but if I get the $450, im keeping the card another year.

Any advice would help!
Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the link. The comment you pointed to doesnt say whether or not he already has a freedom in his wallet. I have a freedom unlimited and freedom card already. Is there no way to get the x3 points on a new unlimited card?

Can I downgrade my freedom unlimited card to another freedom ( meaning I have 2 freedoms on my account/wallet) and then apply for a new freedom unlimited?

I can only understand your question from the words you used...
Did you write you're only sticking with Chase?

So I wrote that better option for every day spend would be to get a $500 welcome bonus for a Chase ink card (probably Ink Unlimited would be best for every day spend) or get any other new card with a decent offer.

If you're specifically only asking how to get x3 with freedom Unlimited you gotta write that...

I apologize. So there is no way of switching the freedom unlimited?
I would like to know how to get the x3 with freedom unlimited.

the main value you get is welcome bonuses.
Is 3x on a new Unlimited on 1st 20k more then other welcome offers from cards you don't yet have?

Imo if you're looking for a new card, take advantage of a welcome offer and once you reach the minimum spend either look to get another card or go back to using the best card for each purchase.
Chase has great Biz card offers but if you only want personal cards maybe look into getting the 70k Barclays Arrival offer or really any other card with fine offers. Amex, Cap1, Citi, Barclays

But this didnt answer the question?
I am sticking to Chase only.

Credit Cards / Misc Credit Card Questions
« on: May 28, 2019, 03:20:39 PM »
Hi,

So this is what's in my wallet.

- Chase Freedom (Used to be a Sapphire Preffered for 4 years, Just downgraded a few months ago)
- Chase Freedom Unlimited
- Chase Sapphire Reserve (Just opened a few months ago)
- Chase Ink Business Cash

The Freedom Unlimited card that I have in my wallet only gets the 1.5 Ultimate Rewards while the new Freedom Unlimited offers 3 points up to 20K in spending and then 1.5

This new offer is much better than my current Freedom Unlimited card. I use my Freedom Unlimited Card for everyday spending so I a giving up a lot of points with the old offer.

What do I do?
Close the card and open a new one?
Can I open a 2nd Freedom Unlimited Card under the same account?

Thanks in Advance!

Any way to downgrade/upgrade from old unlimited to this one? Already got the bonus couple years ago so now would love the 3 point option.

That's exactly what I want to do

In this post: https://www.dansdeals.com/credit-cards/chase-freedom-unlimited-signup-bonus-going-away/ ,  Dan breaks it down for you based on your spending habits

This post talks about the welcome bonus. I am not talking about that. I want to know about the regular every day spending @Dan

So if I am heavily invested into the Chase Ultimate Rewards ecosystem there is not really a benefit for me here.

Unless there is and I am missing something? @Dan

Hi,

I am sorry to sound so ignorant but why is Qantas so good? Especially when flying to Israel?

Thanks

Depends how you are flying. If you are going to fly economy, you're best bet will usually be to use the points as cash.

When you say use the points as cash you mean use the Reserve 50% bonus?

Hi,

So I am a beginner. I am heavily invested in the Chase Ultimate Rewards ecosystem.
I have 300K UR points. How do I get to Israel?

Transfer Points to Miles? If so which?
Book Direct through portal and use my Sapphire Reserve 50% bonus?

Thanks in advance

-1. I've added people to chase cards without SSN, and it was added to their report.

How could we verify that it goes on the Childs report? My son and my father have the same exact name.
