I'm assuming that I can keep my 5/3/1 structure since I don't have the visa signature version. This card is useless to me as a 3/2/1 card. I can get better rewards elsewhere through Chase Freedom and Discover for gas.
Yes, it went through various stages. First the Sig was moving to 3/2/1 after Oct. Then, for a brief period, there was language about "qualifying" accounts, that each month, if you had one of those products, you would get 5/3/1 for that month. But then that went away, and the 3/2/1 for the card was moved to 1/1/14.
That's for the Signature of course. Then people have reported being told by CSRs:
1) Everyone with Plat Rewards will be moved to Sig version at some point
2) No, Plat Rewards users will stay with that card but get the 3/2/1 rewards. In Dec or in June (and probably other dates)
3) The Plat Rewards will go to ZERO rewards, encouraging users to switch.
No idea if any of those are true, but from the beginning of the Sig I couldn't see how the Plat Rewards could have better rewards than the flagship card, and I would expect changes to Cash Rewards too for the same reason.
