If I convert a freedom to the FU, mid billing cycle will I still get 5X on purchases made prior to the conversion ?

Is there still a program wherein I can make bonus points for registering my checking account to my Freedom? If yes, how would I go about that? Sorry for my ignorance, I've moved away from the Freedom recently, and I was under the assumption that there was currently no checking account-holder bonus
Noobies give a fresh perspective on things which may appear stale to the experienced :)

Had to cancel my card due to fraud. Will I need to reactivate the quarterly bonuses on the new cards (for this quarter)?

I applied for a freedom as an offer online and it's pending so I called them up and they told me they need a copy of ID and proof of residence, is there a good chance I'll get approved?

after 5\24

Did it show up in the "offers for you" section with the green check?

It was in the offers and I think it had a green check  but I wasn't approved on the spot so it didn't help this time
