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)?

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?

You should be able to upgrade but abusing it is probably not a good idea.

Any reason to think not? If you are a CSR holder, shouldn't make a difference how you book

I have personal experience with this exact issue.  It depends on the airline.  If the flights are on an airline that shows up in searches on the Chase portal - it should work.

If it's for an airline that does not - they won't be able to book the flight and you won't get the 1.5x bonus if you book direct with the airline.  Air Serbia is an example of this.  I found a great one-way J fare from AMS-TLV, but there was no way to book and enjoy the 1.5.

I've done it with jet blue & spirit (not that I couldn't find the flight, but it was more expensive on chase then the actual airline site, and they price matches it)

Will this card open the atm anteroom? Will any Chase CC unlock that door? I don't have a debit card to use.
I want to make a payment before the blizzard arrives.

Out my window the blizzard has already arrived.
You know you can make the payment on line from a bank account?
 I heard any magnetic strip card opens the door.

Will a refunded ticket work towards $300 credit? or will credit also be reversed? Any reason not do it?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Yes, definitely manual loads. Don't know the latest on auto though.

3X and Travel credit is the same question?
