Asked chase about switching freedom from Visa to MC...

My account has only been open for aprx. 1 month. 

I sent a secure message asking about switching from Visa to MC, and got a response that it would have to be escilated, then never heard anything back... 

I gave the reason that my Son's school lunch program only uses MC, and would like to use my Freedom card for that. 

Figured I'd get the wait 1 year that other have got. 

 

It's been a couple weeks, kind of forgot about it, even though I haven't heard anything, I log into my account today, and notice where it shows your card, I notice a second card with a different last four numbers underneath, showing the same info/transactions/etc. as the one above that has the last four digits of the one I have in my possession. 

 

Even the rewards site shows two cards now... I wonder if I'll be getting a Freedom MC in the mail soon...

Re: Asked chase about switching freedom from Visa to MC...

Yup, I bet they did it! Sweet!

I went and downloaded my last statement which recently cut... That long number as we all know, the first 16 digits is your card number...

If I select the new card showing up, and pull a statement... 

It begins with a 5, which is a MC number. :smileyhappy:

 

That was easy... If anyone wants to change, try a secure message to customer service, 

 

I'll keep ya'll posted that it actucally comes... 

Unexpected, but nice. I've regained a bit of respect for Chase.

They might not have actually switched your account, just added a MC card number to it.  Basically, two ways to access the same account, it might actually only even report one number too.  It might just take a few weeks to and the VISA number will disappear.  I would imagine that you will receive a message in the mail soon.



Rethink every purchase you make, before you make it. Use the card with the best rewards. Pay in full each month. Redeem rewards often. Use the cards online shopping for more discounts. Smile, knowing that being thrifty allows you to actually get more out of the same amount of money!

The same thing happened when I changed my CSP from Visa to Mastercard. Both show up when I log in and I use both the Visa Signature and World Mastercard without issues. They pull from the same pool of credit and share the same points. Only the Mastercard account number is on my credit report however.

Chase: Sapphire Preferred (WMC)/Freedom/Amazon/Auto Loan (41k)

Are you saying that you can now use both cards? Visa Siggy and World MC? And this is not just temporary during the transition period? Kind of cool if this would be permanent until the card expires  :smileyhappy:  A two in one card !

Move the mouse over the cards for detailed view!

As of now, yes I can use both and transactions post to both accounts. I'm expecting Chase to remove the Visa at some point, but for the past month I have been able to use the Visa Signature and the World Mastercard. I primarily just use the MC and leave the Visa for giggles. I also doesn't really utilize any Visa Signature/WMC benefits, so I'm not sure if both are available for use or just the Mastercard's.

Most likely if both cards stay active, the Visa will still get cut or thrown in a drawer. 

 

I don't even know the difference in benefites between the V and the MC, I just know I can pay for lunch online for my son, and go to Sams Club now. :smileyhappy:

 

I would think, though, if both cards are active, you would get the benefits of the network that processed the transaction, depending on which card you used.
