CSP PC to Sapphire?

Postby sakhalin » Wed Jan 29, 2014 4:29 pm

(This question is just out of curiosity. I don't plan on applying for the CSP anytime soon. I got a pre-qualifying thing in the mail.)


If I PC a CSP to a regular Sapphire after a year to avoid the annual fee, do I get to keep the metal card? The account number should be the same since they're both Visas. I got to keep my Discover More card (still works too) after I PC'd to the IT, so I was just wondering.

No, you cannot use the metal card as the security numbers and the expiration date will change with the CS plastic card you'll receive after the PC. Sucks I know but that's how Chase does it. Discover did allow me to continue using the Discover More card after my PC to the new IT card last year but Chase doesn't seem to allow it.

I know it's just me, but I don't quite understand the "phobia" regarding AFs. Especially for travel cards. I guess if you don't travel I could see avoiding them, but anyone who has ever experienced flight cancellations, delays, baggage delayed or misrouted, etc. don't realize the value of the coverages that these cards offer. My highest fee, $95, is an insane bargain compared to the costs I would incur if I ever have my flight, the last of the day, cancelled out from under me. I go out of my way to avoid sleeping in airports. Not that I would be able to sleep. And the REALLY nice thing about the particular card I am referring to allows me to check a bag fee free. For a close horse like me that tends to over pack, this is a godsend.

Conversely, when I called Capital One to cancel their embarrassment to plastic, I actually laughed when they told me on inquiry what the annual fee of $39 was for and they sputtered along while answering. I think the woman I was talking to knew that the fee was bogus since the card basically offered me nothing. That fee was joke that would never be funny to anyone.
