I would think that the freedom would be a downgrade too... I always thought the freedom was almost an "entry" level card.. Well I guess Amazon would be the entry level card for chase but still.. Slate seems to be a "higher" tiered card..

I had a Chase Slate (changed over from a really old card with a different bank) and PC'd it to a Freedom card once I paid off my balance. I think each card has a different benefit depending on the user needs. If you PIF every month, I don't see the benefit of the Slate. I had no problem with the PC, but I had 0 balance, and I had the account for over 10 years. My APR is still really awful though (27% and won't budge) but I don't keep a balance - I just want the rewards!

Did you carry a balance every month during the 1 year wait to pC to freedom? I'm trying to PC from slate to freedom as well but they told me I had to wait a year for a PC. I paid off my balance transfer and was wondering if I should carry like a small balance on the card till the year expires to show them that I PIF.

All I did was send a secure message telling them I was paying off my slate in a few weeks and thinking about closing my account(which was true). I told them if I was eligible for a product change, I would consider keeping my account open. They emailed me back saying they could convert me to a freedom. Yep, I took the offer
