If you would be able to elaborate on the better benefits, I would be very grateful.

I only need it for occasional purchases (meeting spend target not a problem as some big expenses coming up) but as I am not in the US currently the return protection is important - it comes in very handy. Travel credit could also always be used.
Then perhaps the blue cash preferred is for you. You can read some DDMS posts about the details on benefits, it doesn't seem like you'll have much use / benefit from either of them.

I got an upgrade offer on my Amex everyday card to upgrade to Everyday Preferred for 40k points. Two questions.

1) I had a preferred card in the past am I going to get the points?

2) Will this incur a hard pull?

TIA

I have the 2 southwest business cards. Is it worth keeping them open with the 199+99 fee?

Is it worth it to pay 3% charge on $25,000 to receive points? Or makes more sense to pay cash?
If yes, which card makes the most sense? Itís 5 payments of $5,000 each

if your credit card applications are throttled by the amount of spend you can manage, then it is absolutely worth it.

but if you have enough spend for your credit card applications, and this would just be extra, then there's hardly an opportunity to earn 3% back on every day spent ( never mind coming out ahead)

Depends on your use case, probably not if your not taking advantage of the perks.

If I make a payment to Chase CC with a Chase Checking Account, does the original credit limit apply immediately? I made the payment and the credit limit didn't change, I wonder if it's possible that what's written didn't update, but the full limit is there.

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
