If you downgrading a card, for example sapphire preferred to freedom, does the freedom count as 1 of 5 for 5/24?

If it's a personal card why don't you change it to a no annual fee card?

Will it count as 1/5 for 5/24? Also, will it effect my ability to receive a bonus for the "new card" (within 2 years of closing the new card)?

United at 50k is worth the most

Is the ability to obtain a companion pass just with the signup bonus for southwest not make it more valuable right now, assuming you were going to use the points (and not sell them)?

Approximately how long of an effect will shutting down a credit card with a $25K limit (approximately 20-25% of my total credit available) have on my credit score? Shutting it down to avoid fee. (It's a chase card and I'm above the 5/24 rule, so I cant open another card and transfer the CL). Or, is it worth it to just pay the $95? (I, personally, don't care about short term effects. I currently have score of apx 750).

I see that a shipping label was created for my order. I don't believe it will actually ship out.
Please post if it does

2 questions regarding the 2x MR Points until 12/31/16:

1. Does this apply to multiple purchases or is it one-time use?
2. Are there Twitter #'s for these?

TIA

Know anyone I can ask for clarity on this?

You can't go wrong doing 5K transactions, that'll for sure work no matter which way you cut it. But I understand that that's not so possible for everyone

How much are you willing  to spend?

I don't want to be wasting points but neither do I care to use them, so I am willing to spend whatever it is as long as it's fair.

Is it possible for those seats to become available after they have become unavailable- should i keep checking for those seats?

14
This is so easy. BA.com (AA flight) EWR-MIA for 9K in business class. Just checked and 3 seats are available.
Thanks for your response. I dont see an outbound flight available. Do you mind checking again to make sure i didnt do anything wrong?
