A. If you convert into a CSR (from let's say a freedom), do you get the $300 benefit? B. If you then downgrade it back and upgrade back into it, does the $300 reset for that year?

I am assuming A yes and B no but wanted to check if anyone has tried this.

1. You can buy anything that codes as travel, meaning any airline gift card, doesn't have to be United. You can buy them all at the same time, this isn't like amex.
2. Doesn't matter.
3. Any ticket.

Because he thinks so. Per FT on the Amex credit, credit has to come thru as $100/85 to qualify, $50+50=100 does not
I SM'd chase. They responded by saying that the charges from CBP/TSA are coded. Essentially the credit hits the account if the charge matches the code.

If I downgrade Reserve to Freedom Unlimited, will I be able to upgrade back at any time and then re-downgrade (if I want to use points for travel @ 1.5 cents or to transfer to airline)?
If you are trying to get my attention/assistance and I'm not responding, please feel free to PM me. :)

Why not just downgrade to the preferred?

Preferred also has an AF and can't do airfare at 1.5 cpp.
Why do that over what he is asking?

Correct, my hesitation is the AF. Can I do the downgrade then upgrade for  when needed or will need to reapply?
