Way to go. I didnt have my circuit city visa but for a few months and then i product changed to chase freedom plus.
I recently called the backdoor number, that does the combining, to Chase and asked if they could upgrade the Circuit City store card to the Visa. The lady was very nice and explained that I needed to speak to the product change dept., she did not blow me off, but put me on hold and few minutes later she came back and said that someone else will be helping me. The other lady came on the phone and started reading a lot of thing that I was not paying attention to ,so I stop her and ask if I could change the store card to the visa. She explained that they just upgraded me and she was going over the new terms. I ended up with a lower APR. My current balance was 499 and as soon as I pay off my the new card I will combine it with the freedom. .
