I know Chase said in the press release, they were not replacing the freedom for the unlimited, but you have to wonder if the end game is just that... and eventually the freedom will fade away for the unlimited.
That would be my guess. They wouldn't yank the original Freedom right away, but eventually, I could see them phasing it out.
Gas and mass transit...groceries and discount clubs...restaurants...online shopping...
They don't seem to be taking the Dividend route of useless categories...for 2016, at least.
I suppose URs might have some nerf protection, since Chase has the cobrand contracts for Hyatt and United. That might make it tricky for them to drop or devalue two of the best transfer options.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt, Arrival
May close or PC: Prestige, BrooksBros
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech
