This card has proved to be very lucrative for me, I got the card mid Nov. for the 3k spend requirement I bought 6 iPhones for someone who resells them, I bought it on Nov. 25th through UR mall and then saw that they had a promo for 10x points on Nov. 28 so I called up and said that if I would have known I would have waited... In the end they gave me the points as a adjustment, I just got my UR points for December And they gave me the standard 2x bonus for apple purchase through the Ur mall.
So I ended up getting 13x the points for the iPhones so 6 iPhones at $649=3894 x13 =50,622 that's on top of the signup bonus

You might be right, and I hope so. But 3 senior specialists confirmed me otherwise. I hope that they don't know what they are talking.
BTW, look at your statement, and you'll see that even points transfers show as "courtesy adjustments", but I guess time will tell, just another week.
Perhaps speak to another 3 Senior Reps and you can be sure we wont get the bonus for them.

I just got my January statement(Jan 3) and I did not see the 7%bonus on there.
So maybe the first statement after January??

my chase account online does show my sp with a 3k limit so clearly it is possible although i'm not sure if the csr knew what type of account she was taking from as she only referenced the last 4 numbers and she was part of the business card recon team

Does parking/traffic tickets count as travel? (It has been confirmed that tolls do count, that's my basis for this question)

You did pretty well, officially UR mall will only credit 2 iPhones a month

here is a quote from the UR mall page of the Apple store:

"Eligible only to a customer for up to five (5) units per eligible product, except iPhone, in which case only two (2) units within a thirty-day (30-day) period are eligible."

all I'm saying is that you're lucky that you got credited for all the iPhones not just 2 of them

Hi,
I know this has been posted elswhere and for the life of me I searched and cannot find the thread. My question is using the the Freedom or Sapphire Preferred for Gas and Amazon during 1Q. Is it not better to use the preferred with 2x points then the Freedom with 5% back?
Thanks
S

If you have both and can freely transfer points from Freedom to Sapphire, then unless you need to hit a SP minimum spend, or unless I am mistaken, I don't see why you would use the Sapphire on gas in Q1.

Also curious about the original question, when does the 7% come through, and I was actually under the assumption (very different from what I am reading here) that it was tied to your anniversary year. This was intuitive to me because I likened it to Citi's "anniversary" bonus of 1-5% you get on points earned with the ThankYou Premier on your anniversary date, or cards that give you a free domestic flight per year it is usually based on anniversary year not calendar year (at least in my experience, again, with the Citi TYP card). So if someone has answer I would also love to know!

2 Added questions about the Sapphire preferred which I recently opened:
- If I convert from Preferred to regular after 11 months to avoid the fee, will I still get 7% based on whatever I earned during those 11 months?
- If I convert from Preferred to regular, do I lose the ability to transfer existing UR points from SP to airlines? I don't want to lose this ability, any other ideas?

I'm not sure, but if the Sapphire pays a 7% dividend then I'm confident they'll adjust it for you manually if necessary.

- If I convert from Preferred to regular, do I lose the ability to transfer existing UR points from SP to airlines? I don't want to lose this ability, any other ideas?

You will lose the ability to transfer to airlines. You can get an Ink Bold that'll allow for airline transfer, or transfer your Chase UR points to someone else's SP/IB account.
