Well, let's see but I can certainly see them denying it.  This differs from the Freedom case because:

 

a) The offer comes from a special link, for Freedom it is the public offer that has been updated

b) The offer terms are different.  It's possible that they will give you the extra points with the extra AF (although waived for the first year).

This is like several issuers who have a range of offers that differ in cashback, APR, 0% intro period etc, you cannot pick and choose the best bits of each!

I'm actually quite prepared for them to say "No".  I figured it can't hurt to ask :smileywink:

But then there is the regular CSP with the $95 AF and that still has a public link and is offering the 5k UR points for an AU, I see them honoring that one over the 10k UR $125 AF CSP

Re: CSP 55k Offer?

Thanks ac921ol.  I did see you mention that one.  Maybe I'll have better luck going that route.

Oh, don't see an issue with them honoring the AU stuff on that.  I meant the 50K without increasing the AF.

Re: CSP 55k Offer?

I just applied for the CSP for my wife using this 55K points offer.  Does anyone know how long the card must be open before we can downgrade it to a Freedom (or something else) to avoid the annual fee?

@ Hoosier

With 3 Freedoms, why a 4th?

The 3 Freedoms are in my name, so I figure one in hers could make sense.  I don't think we need CSP's in both of our names with the annual fees so downgrading to a Freedom would save us paying the annual fee while still reaping the benefits of the sign-up bonus.  Do you think there is another option I should consider?
