i have 3 Chase accounts that earn UR points: 1 Chase Sapphire Reserve, and 2 Chase Ink cards.

Since Chase Sapphire Reserve has a 1.5 cents per dollar redemption option, can I move my points over from my Chase Ink cards (using the "combine points" feature) to the Chase Sapphire card, so that all my points will have the 1.5 cents per dollar redemption option?

I called Chase to ask that question, and they said yes, but it seems impossible to me that they would do that.
Please let me know if you have done this.
yes you can provided they belong to you or your spouse

Now that my statement closed for 2016 on the reserve card. Can I start collecting on my $300 travel before 2017 or I need to wait for the actual new calendar year to start before I can redeem my $300?

Also if I apply now can I get the credit for 2016?

I don't think that's been discussed at all in any of the online travel forums or websites. Would you be so kind to TARP?

What about a 2015 credit for a charge I wanted to dispute?

another question:
what does this mean -the part i underlined (from dan's original post about this card)?:

"Previously itís always been worth transferring Chase points into real airline miles and hotel points. But at about 1.5 cents per dollar it can start making sense to consider redeeming points directly for paid travel without transferring them into miles. Thatís especially true as those fares, as opposed to traditional mileage tickets, also earn additional miles."

if i'm redeeming via chase for paid travel, how are those fares earning additional miles?
sorry - just not getting it.

thanks for any help

Because any travel redeemed through UR is considered a cash purchase on the airlines/hotels end, thus earning you miles/points for the flight/stay

You don't get your car rental membership benefits if you booked thru CSR travel website?
I have Avis preferred membership and booked on CSR site. The reservation is not found on Avis account unless I manually add the confirmation number I got from Chase. I called Avis and the rep said since this is booked thru third party and not directly from us, you don't get your preferred membership benefit. Is this true? I thought CSR gets you automatic preferred status but the rep said he doesn't see preferred benefit info on this reservation. Strange!

You should be able to add a wizard number to the reservation.

Where do you add it? They don't even call it wizard number.
I am unable to see or do anything regarding the avis rental booked from Chase on my avis.com account. I can find the reservation only if i enter the chase rental confirmation number. How do I know i will be able to take advantage of my avis preferred benefit when i am at the location? The rep said no avis benefit if booked from third party.

Random... My December statement closed today at $4107.23 thus is including my AF yet my bonus points still posted. Is the AF included in the 4k spending?

it doesnt count but the $300 TC does so you are just $42.77 short are you sure you didnt make any small payments during the month? or maybe you got a refund on something after you got to $4000?
