on that note, has anyone gone directly from sp  visa to sp  and?
from my conversation with a csr it sounded like the only way to convert is to first downgrade

I just did it. I had the SP visa for about a month or two, then had it switched to the SP MC. Now i'm just waiting for my new SP visa to come in the mail.  ;D

Which new visa? You applied again for the 50k?

Yes. He no longer has the SP Visa, he has a SP MC.

The co opp card albeit a wmc doesn't cover rentals in Israel

it has to do with chase foregoing wmc coverage in order to offer their premium primary coverage

so basically i did the same thing as dan i got my card and i already put on the minimum amount needed (being im flying to america from israel and sold an iphone 4s here too :-) i just never got the actual card to call chase and ask them to switch it yet. but it happens to be that my mom just did the same exact thing and that she was also on the phone for hrs with the supervisor about getting it upgraded they too gave her points and said that she will get her WMC sapphire perffered in a few days.

now i would like to sign up for the amazon payments...which i did. i just dont know how i can do it monthly? also can i do it with more than one card at a time?!


thanks so much!

As Dan posted on dansdeals.com, you could convert your SP from a VS to a WMC with the most important benefit being CDW in Israel.

I, like Dan, had the same experience with switching where they downgraded me from a SP to a regular Sapphire. When I originally called up to make the change, the CSR told me that he doesn't have the option to do it but he'll escalate it and I'll get a response in the mail. Sure enough, I noticed a couple days later that there was a new account listed in my Online banking and a today I received my Sapphire (not preferred) WMC in the mail. Being that Dan already mentioned that he realized they downgraded him, I immediately called up and told them to re-upgrade me to SP and make sure it remains a WMC and does not revert back to a VS. The CSR I spoke with this morning was very helpful and she told me it was a mistake and they would re-upgrade me and it would remain a WMC, and she also credited me 7,500 UR points for the inconvenience!

What have been others' experiences with switching?

Also, as mentioned above, the WMC offers CDW in Israel, but when I read the benefits guide that came with the card, it says: "Benefits may not apply in ..., ..., Israel, etc. Please check with your rental agency first", It doesn't say Israel is excluded, but that it might be, and from what people write about their experiences renting cars in Israel it seems like they usually make you pay for CDW, so if I was to check with the rental agency, as the T&C says I should, then I'm pretty sure they'll say it doesn't cover! So, how does this work? Is Israel covered or not?
If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.

BTW, if I switch my SP VS to a SP WMC, will I have issue with any of the purchase/return/warranty protections?
