So I applied for a Chase Sapphire Preferred card under the new promotion that offers $500 worth of points after spending $3k in three months knowing that I already had a regular Sapphire, which I got when the card was first rolled out by Chase.
I had hoped they would just send the "preferred" card and I would be on my way to another $500 in the bank. Sadly, no.
I wasn't spurned exactly, but rather was told I already had a Sapphire and invited to call them to talk about "my needs" in the credit area. This can't be anything but an invitation to grovel for the $500 that we both know I want, so I'm going to pass, taking with me a lesson about the perils of being an early adopter.
