Close slate apply for freedom?

Okay, I'm still having issues with my Chase Slate. I've called every backdoor number, including the executive office. They will not do a PC to a freedom from a slate. Each time I'm told that the "screen says there is no option to change this card". They cannot give me an explanation as to why I am unable to PC to a freedom, it just won't allow them to. I've had the card since 2011 and it has a $0 balance. He stated my only option would be to apply for a freedom.

 

Is that a good option? Should I close the Slate and apply for a Freedom? I just want a card with some rewards now that I have paid off almost all of my credit cards. Maybe I should just SD the Slate and use my BOA 1-2-3 for gas and groceries?

 

I had 7 credit cards. 

Bill me later- paid off and closed

Barclay Card (apply financing)- Paid off and closing

Best buy - still has a small balance, will be closing

Old Navy VISA- Still has $82 balance, will be closing

Kay Jeweler's card- keeping because I use it once a year and pay it off. (have had it since 2006)

I PC my BOA card to the rewards already and now that leaves this pesky slate card.

I would apply for Freedom. If approved transfer your credit limit from the Slate to the Freedom and then close the Slate.

Apply for Freedom and if approved moved the limit from slate to freedom...

But Chase has this crazy rule Slate you would have to leave a 500 limit on

At that point you could close or leave it open and grow it again

Okay, my credit limit is only $1500 for Slate. So I could possibly transfer $1000 and keep $500 on the slate?

That is correct, if you are approved for the Freedom you can definately move it over.
