Anyone have a Chase Ink Classic?

[ Edited ]

I will be downgrading my Ink Plus (world elite mastercard) next month to an Ink Classic (open 13 months). Does anyone know what type of mastercard it is: platinum, world, world elite (doubt it)? Not a big deal really, but just curious. Thanks.

 

Edit: I think I won't downgrade next month. I may try out the card for a second year and reassess then.

I don't have it myself, but I remember reading that it's a MC World, with the red and gold logo instead of silver/foil.

Thanks, world was my guess. Had no idea about the colors though.

I don't have the Classic but I have the Cash and it's a World MC so I would bet the Classic is the same.

Can you confirm whether or not the Ink Cash earns strictly cashback or UR points?

Re: Anyone have a Chase Ink Classic?

It earns UR points but it's the only Ink card that will allow you to get the cash out as an option. I'll never use it but it seemed like a good starter Ink card and has earned me quite a few UR points. 

 

We can't really churn Ink cards but we can get all four versions and collect the bonuses. I'm holding three of them for the same business and had no issues getting them. Last one was given with no recon call at all, I never expected an approval without the begging and pleading.

Is the Ink Plus downgrade to an Ink Classic/Cash always gauranteed (after 12 months) or is it a YMMV situation?

I called the regular CSR number after the 12th and 13th statements, and both times, I was told my card was ineligible for the downgrade. After giving it some more thought, I decided not to downgrade. I was one of the first to ever get the Ink Plus card, so at this point without more anecdotal evidence, I'm not sure if the card can even be downgraded.

Wow, that is unfortunate. I wonder why. Did they give you a reason? Are you trying again after the 14th statement?

 

When did you open up your Ink Plus card, and how come that might make it ineligible if it's "old"?
