Ok, they are overnighting me a Sapphire card. :) I went ahead and got a new one with all of the perks, and then transferred my credit limit from my Freedom and cancelled it. I don't need 2 cards, and my chase freedom just took to much work with the quarterly changes. Thanks for the feedback here guys.

I hope you transferred your UR points, too. Or does that happen automatically? The Chase website makes it look like all URs are tied to a specific account.

It is a little bit of a hassle. If you have a lot of business travel expenses (and presumably therefore eat at restaurants a lot) then 5% on $1500 a quarter isn't going to make a big difference in your rewards. I've really found the 2015 5% categories useful, and I earn a little more on off-category stuff with Freedom than with CSP. I don't spend enough to find rotating categories inconvenient.
Keeping indefinitely: IHG, SchwabPlat, CSP, Discover, Freedom, ED, BCE, Hyatt
May close or PC: Prestige, Arrival, BrooksBros
AA Platinum converting into Costco

Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech
Letting new accounts cool off since May

Mine showed up as a MC. Do some people have a CSP as a Visa?

I had not used it for a while so I did not bother with the points. I think I had 53. :)

Yeah, My CSP is a Visa Sig. I never had an option for a MC.

I like the feel of the card, But IMHO it just looks solid, dark blue now. I like the lighter versions that came before it much more.

Now I am curious why I ended up with a M/C... I normally prefer VISA.

Last I heard the WMC was available was in 2012. They discontinued it in 2013. I don't know how you ended up with one, especially if you didn't request it. Now Your making me want to go check mine again. :rolleyes:

Visa here as well. I thought they did away with MC a few years ago. Chase seems to be all about Visa everything.
