Chase Freedom World - Product trade

I gave up on Chase and the CRAs getting my Chase Freedom Cash World MC to report in a way that was beneficial instead of detrimental to me.  I left DH's card alone, as the newly reported CL is hanging around and was used in revolving utilization on the last report I saw. But, for some reason they either never got my CL reported, or it didn't "stick." :smileysad:
 
I arranged a "product trade" from the World card to the Platinum version.  How long should I wait before I order a 3-in-1 report to see how the limit issue is working out?  Do they generallly report the "new" card right away?
 
I haven't decided on a 3-in-1 report yet, as one example I looked at the other day combined the High Balance / Credit Limit field and the example only listed one number in that field.  I would like something that will show both fields.  Does it exist?

World MC is the brother/sister of the Visa Signature ... so same song, second verse. :smileyhappy:
 
Both are "no preset spending limit" cards.

Yeah I just changed mine to a non-signature for the fear that I would have the same problems.

I noticed in one of your other posts that you referenced a $30 annual fee for the rewards program.  Where did you get that information?  As far as I know, my World card didn't have such a fee, and I was not informed that the Platinum card would.  Is that aspect of MC vs VISA different?

Not sure weather the difference is Visa or MC. I was informed of this by the CSR at Chase this AM when I made the change. I didn't know until she told be also!

Do you know the name of the card they moved you to? 
 
My new one showed up with Chase Online today and I had to ask what it was because they had told me that I would not get a new account number and I was surprised to see two cards there. The name of my new one is Chase Freedom Dynamic Cash Platinum MasterCard.  Now ... that's a mouthful! :smileywink:
 
I wonder if they moved you to a totally different card and you had to add Freedom Rewards to it?  Did they do a "product trade" or treat it as a new application for a new card? 
 
The CSR that was helping me initially thought she had to do a new application for a different product because she didn't realize that there were two levels of the Freedom Card ... World and Platinum.  It looks like the same should be true for VISA ... there should be a Signature and Platinum.
 
There's a Chase Freedom Plus Visa that has a $30 Rewards fee that is waived the first year.  Is it possible that is what they moved you to?

The Freedom Plus is still a Signature Card...That is the issue I think that causes all the reporting problems...because no pre-set spending limits.

Man ... they need to identify their cards better and market them as No PreSet Spending Limit cards so the unsuspecting (like me) don't apply for and accept one of them without understanding what they are getting into. 
 
After you drew my attention to it, I did notice that the Freedom Plus card offers both a "signature" version and a "platinum" (non-signature) version.  If I had known then what I know now, I would have specifically asked for the to NOT have the No PreSet Spending Limit version of our cards when we applied.  Gee ... without the edit ... that didn't make any sense! 
 
Well ... back to trying to find examples of 3-in-1 reports so I can more easily follow up on the new reporting.  :smileysurprised:
