WaMu / Chase product change success!!!

Re: WaMu / Chase product change success!!!

They transferred over all but $500 of each old Wamu/providian(cl of 3000 and 6300) to my Chase card(cl of 15000). So now I have $23300 on that one. They asked me what i wanted to do with the other 2 and I told them to close them. So the only negative is i lost $1000 in overall limit and will lose the history benefit in 10 years...I think i can live with that tiny dent. Now I just have to call Wells Fargo and cancel the $19 rewards feature on my card there and put everything toward the Freedom plus.

Re: WaMu / Chase product change success!!!

I am new to the board, but I thought I share my experience..


I too just called the number provided by the first person, and to my surprise; the rep was able to convert my wamu platinum mastercard to the chase perfectcard. She asked me what kind of cash back I was looking for, and I said "gas." Then she offered me the perfectcard, which was what I wanted in the first place. I've had the card for exactly a year this month, and I currently have a $0 balance on the card. I did file bk7 back in 2006, which was discharged in 01/2007 in case some of you are afraid to call due to your bk. It shouldn't be a problem because they were able to convert with no problems at all! Thanks so much for the magic number.. =)

Re: WaMu / Chase product change success!!!

Worked for me too, although I did have to call twice, the first guy I talked to didn't seem to know anything about doing a product change and gave me a number to another department, so I called back and the next person I spoke to was able to switch me to the perfect card.

Re: WaMu / Chase product change success!!!

I called that number, asked for a product change on my 4k wamu (now chase) card. She was very polite and said that the card does not have any offers to transfer.


Then I asked her if she can merge the credit limits from 4k wamu to 2.6k chase freedom card. She said she could only transfer 3.5k off 4k. I am happy with that. That is what I wanted in the first place. 


I like using one card with all rewards.

Re: WaMu / Chase product change success!!!

I called yesterday morning and the rep told me that my card was not eligible for a product change (she called it something else). I asked why and she just said it wasn't and to give it some time and call back. Well, I called back a few hours later and got a young lady who didn't bother to check if my card was eligible, she just started running down all the cards I could PC to. Because I was at work and needed to get off the phone, I opted for the Perfectcard for now, which will take affect in 3 business days. She told me to go to their website and see if there was another card I would be more interested in, then call her back and she'll be more than happy to PC my card to the new one. I was thankful and speechless.

I was informed that the Freedom was one of the better cards and that I'd have to apply for it. But that was the only card I would have to apply for.

At least I get some rewards now!!

Re: WaMu / Chase product change success!!!



Just called the number from the original post and "Patti" was happy to convert my exisiting $3.5k WAMU no reward card to a Chase Freedom Miles.  Took about 90 seconds for entire call!


Said takes about 3 days to setup and I will receive a new card in the mail with new terms and a list of the shopping places that give you triple rewards!


Thanks for the post.  Hopefully my APR will be reduced....was 29.99 Smiley Surprised

Called yesterday (Sunday) for change told not available.

Just called Chase again for product change and was told that accounts have to go through one payment cycle with Chase before it can be entered into rewards program. CSR suggested I call back after each new statement hits.
