    I have a chase freedom and an amex blue cash my limit is 10x on the amex I think you have that reversed about the subprime plus the service is so much better with amex they will bend over backwards for you, I'm guessing you don't charge much on amex or you wouldn't feel the way you do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Amex CS is subprime, it's a step above Cap One if you get the offshore CS, American CS is still decent though. But it's obvious that's going away.

    Chase is all American as far as I can tell. I've had both and to be honest if I had my choice between the two, I'd go with Chase. Just my 2 cents.

    I put 1-2K per month on BCP. I notice the CS has been going down hill for about a year now. Now I was a bit sarcastic about the subprime coment but Amex is not what it was a few years ago. I also pay in full on all my cards if thats a factor.

    To answer your question about Visa or MC, I think to get the MC version you would've needed to apply for the CSP on the MC website. I think it was that way at one time anyway. I don't think the MC is quite as good as the Visa, from what I've read. It was a while back when I looked into it though. I don't really remember what the differences are, but I don't think they're very significant.

    I really don't like overseas customer service. There is a glaring difference between offshore and domestic service with Amex.

    For whatever reason Chase doesn't really refer to the Preferred account as such, making it seem like you got downgraded in the underwriting process. The quickest way to verify your Preferred status is to go to Ultimate Rewards where you'll see the Preferred logo and the Transfer Points button in the banner. There is no clause in the terms and conditions that allows them to downgrade you, so even if they just say Sapphire, if you apply for the Preferred version then that's the one you get.
