How does Chase define the 24 month period? From the date I opened the account?, From the date I made the first purchase, or the date I got the 50,000 points?

Thanks,

Does anyone know if it is possible to downgrade the card to a different one (to avoid the annual fee) after 11 months? Don't know if it is noteworthy, but I already have a Freedom & Amazon card through Chase.

no! you have to look at points redemption as a dollar amount. Redeeming cash back gets you 1 cent per point (1%). the real value comes when you transfer to airline partners for award travel. for example: transfer 80,000 points to United and Book a saver award on a Star Alliance pet we flight to Asia. The flight of you bought it might cost $1,200 - in that case you are getting 1.5 cents per UR point which is 50% higher in value than regular cash back
i have a united miles card, so app this and transfer all pts to the united mile card? i traveled to HK last year with all the bonus miles i racked up. have an idea what's the value if i transfter all 50k pts to the united mile card? it's 80k miles one way to Hong Kong on business/first class.

You get double the points for travel/dinning expenses. So for example, $100 meal = 200 points = 200 miles with an airline partner such as United.

It almost makes carrying an airline credit card not needed, since the airline card will give you 2x the purchase when you book a flight with them using their branded CC. This way you can buy an airline ticket with American Airlines, Southwest, Delta, United, and all of those purchase amounts would give you double the points.

2x points for parking, taxi, buses, train tickets.

Also, no foreign transaction fee, and PRIMARY rental coverage.
So you can transfer your points to all those airline? I thought it was only a couple of those.

Ugh. I have run against the hard limit Chase has for new accounts in the past 24 months. No Sapphire Preferred for me, despite an 805 FICO.

Sure, but why would you want to? Sapphire Preferred is my favorite card.

If you travel or eat at restaurants with any regularity at all, the card pays for itself.

Especially when you combine it with the Chase Freedom, which you already have. When you have both cards, all the points you earn on Freedom get MUCH more valuable, since they can be transferred through the Sapphire Preferred to travel partners instead of just cashed out.

No you cannot to all of them, but with this card I pool them all in United. If you use one airline all the time then having their CC makes sense. But if I use various airlines from time to time, then using this card I get 2x the points pooled into a United Airlines points.

1:1 transfer is good for
British Airways Executive Club, Korean Air SKYPASS, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards®, United MileagePlus®, Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, Hyatt Gold Passport®, IHG® Rewards Club, Marriott Rewards® and The Ritz-Carlton Rewards®.

You could do that. I have the Sapphire Preffered as well as a United Miles Card and do the same thing

I recently signed up with this card for the 40k as well. I tried sending a secure message and calling a few times but they said it has to be escalated. Is the transition supposed to be instant for people trying to match this offer?

I mainly use Delta and Marriott and southwest and united from time to time. Forgot to mentioned that I mainly book through travel sites on vacation packages so I can't exactly applied my points for the airline portion of the cost....

I've been thinking of getting the Venture card that gives you 2% back on all purchases and you can erased your travel expenses. I can booked a cheap vacation package and erased the purchase with my points.

A lot of people get so blinded by the straight dollar value of this that they miss one of the biggest pluses of this card and points system: flexibility!

Want to go west coast US to Hawaii? Transfer to British Avios, and it's only 12500 Avios each way. Want to take some continental US flights? Probably Southwest is a good bet. Want to top-up your Marriott account to get that huge Vacation Package deal (7 night stay + airline miles combo)? You're all set. Want to book an amazing vacation to other continents? United, Singapore, Korean all good options. First class Singapore is a great award redemption, and this card can help you get there.

There are many, many ways to get amazing value out of these points if you do just a bit of research into the best ways to use them.

No. It's called the 5/24 rule. if you open ANY 5 credit cards within past 24 months you will be rejected regardless if you have a good credit score.
