I never downgraded.
sorry for bad expression. I should ask can I keep the points when I convert to MC or I should redeem before?

So no one on the thread has churned the SP?
I have. But I don't remember exactly how long I waited in between apps

Would downgrading my SP to a regular Sapphire allow me to then apply for SP and get the bonus again?

When I signed up originally for my Sapphire Preferred, I had a plain sapphire, and they just closed that one and moved the credit line to the SP and approved my app.

Will they let you downgrade from SP to normal saph still?

My friend just got the SP without them closing his regular Sapphire, so YMMV I guess.

you wont lose your points. however if you dont convert to preferred then you lose transfer options(to airlines and the like) although you can still transfer to another person that has preferred.

If I switch my visa sp to a master card sp so that I can re-apply for the visa sp and get the 50k again, will I lose the 7% yearly dividend from my past spending these last few months on my visa sp?

No.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

So whatís the bottom line on this card? Can it be churned? So we donít get into a discussion on the meaning of churn let me rephrase the question. Can you apply for this card every month (or two or three, ect.) and still receive the bonus?

You will see both cards listed on your account online (although one of them is closed). Every transaction you make will be reflected on both including your point balance. Don't get so excited when you see double amount of points, if you try switching out from one it will deduct from both.

Lol sometimes its worth getting very excited like I just did with the chase sapphire SCR.
I asked why I see double charges and that it really doesn't look good for me if my spouse checks my spending....
I then asked if they wanted to give me any points for this because it seems very unprofessional that I see it double  , got 8k off it.
point is, its always worth getting excited about things like this...
it CAN be done!

Isn't there an annual fee for the SP WMC too? If yes, switching will not help me save the annual fee.

If I downgrade my Sapphire Preferred Visa to Sapphire regular, can I re-apply for the Preferred?
If yes, how long should I wait after the downgrade?
