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?

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 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.

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?

my father just successfully switched after having the card for a month or two. It actually was switched to the wmc preferred without asking specifically for that. you just have to try again(try exploiting the israel rental coverage)
also today he called recon for a 2nd visa SP which was originally denied bec. of the existing visa SP and after not giving up they approved him!!

lol! i tried transferring! it didn't work!

Every detail about the 2 accounts are identical, every purchase and credit show up in both and they both show the same original CL

Even the UR points both show up the same amount each.
(When I was playing around on the UR website I saw the option of transferring from one account to the other so I attempted a transfer from the Visa to the MC and on the the next screen it showed me that I would end up with double the miles, but when I submitted the transfer it still left me with the original amount in both accounts! too bad :(

What argument did he use to convince the rep he should have two Visa SP cards?

I called just now on mine and said, "I want to change from Visa to World MC" and after a minute he said "done"

That was easy
