I had been reading online more and more since becoming a member and became keen to the retention offers. Gives me something to do and learn while I sit in the garden. Being on the forums makes me want to be as active as I can in taking advantage of the different benefits, bonuses, etc..
So I had read quite a bit online that they didn’t offer much if anything for retention on the CSP. I’ve had the card for about 3.5 yrs and vary between $ 25k-$ 50k a year through the card. I decided to call the number on the back of the card and basically just said I wanted to cancel the card as I had been recently approved for the United Club Card and couldn’t see the benefit of contiuning to pay the AF on this card. As soon as I mentioned that she offered a $ 100 statement credit that would post in 1-2 months but most likely sooner.
Was on the phone with the CSR for less than 2 minutes and got a great offer. They also had just given me a soft pull CLI 2 weeks ago for $ 6800, I’m thoroughly enjoying my Chase relationship so far they have been pretty good to me aside from refusing to lower the APR on my Freedom 27.49% even though both my CSP & recently approved UnitedCard have about a 16% rate.
Hope this helps for those out there!
