Are people having issues switching the SPV to the SPWMC or is it still easy to do?

Very easy.

Updated datapoint...

Just converted my CSPWMC to a Freedom MC over the phone (just before my AF hit).  Call was straightforward.  I asked, they confirmed it possible, and I confirmed I wanted to.

Is there any benefit of having a Freedom MC over a Visa?

I believe they say you won't but everyone has received them anyway.

Are you sure? so i should just tell them to go ahead and switch it? how do i make sure they actually "approve" my application and don't just switch my WMC to a visa

Other than the usual MC over Visa benefits.  Like Sam's Club payability. =)

The better benefit is that now I have both a Freedom MC and a Freedom Visa so I can double up on the 5% categories.

I SM'ed to switch Sapphire WMC to Freedom. Response Below:

Thank you for showing interest to have a Chase Freedom
Mastercard.

At this time, the option to change your current card to a
Chase Freedom Mastercard is unavailable. An account that
is open less than 12 months is not eligible to change to a
different product.
I apologize for any inconvenience this
may cause you.

Further, as an alternative, you may apply for a new Chase
Freedom Ultimate account. The new applications are
available on-line at our secure website. Please visit our
website referenced below for the most current offers and
terms available:

http://www.creditcards.chase.com

When selecting the credit card that best meets your needs,
please remember that our policy no longer allows for
customers to have more than one credit card in the same
product.
Applications for a card product you already have
may not be eligible for approval.

If we can help you with your account in any other way,
please send us a secured e-mail or call us at the number
listed below.
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

Why not wait til you reach 12 months?  The AF doesn't hit until a few weeks after 12 months so you have time in case you don't like seeing an AF.  Even if the AF hits, once you convert your account, the AF should disappear as long as its within 30 days (possibly more, but why push it)

Some have said you can reapply the same or next day.  If you're concerned, just wait 30 days, which I believe is the amount of days they can still re-open a closed account.

Just got the fee on my visa. Suppose I just cancel it to get the AF refunded, and then apply on my next round of apps for the visa again? Seen a few people on here say you can re-apply for the CSPV pretty quickly after canceling and still get the bonus.

Data points recently, anyone?
