Chase Freedom Mastercard

I have been eyeing the freedom card for quite some time now and I figured I should get the mastercard version because I don't have a mastercard yet and my school only takes mastercards. When I went to the mastercard website, I cant find the app for the freedom card anymore. Is the mastercard discontinued? I called CS and they said only visa, unless a banker can offer me the MC version.

App for the visa then call in after 1 month of It activated and get it PCed to MC. Chase can do this.

LS is right. I changed my csp from visa siggy to World Mc a month after i had applied for it. (already have freedom siggy). It was painless.

Re: Chase Freedom Mastercard

If you PC to a MC after a month, does that count as a new account?

Re: Chase Freedom Mastercard

No new account... I asked for the MC version only a couple weeks after getting my Visa via the secure message, They sent one right away. Still to this day, both the Visa and Mastercard show in my account, tied together. I only use the MC, as the Visa is in my sock drawer.
