got the CSR bonus in early 2017, not sure i can go 2 years without either sapphire, what a dilemma.  might just pound the stone with freedom in between winning the dang day with non chase cards which i have been neglecting the next 2 years.

It's pretty simple.  Will you get $190 worth of points/benefits from your CSP over the next 2 years or not? 

You'd still be able to mess with other cards in the meantime.  Just make sure you don't do so much that you'd be over 5/24 when it comes time to get a CSR.

$190 just breaks even and pays for the annual fees, i would need more than that since i'll be getting a point/$ on the freedom without an annual fee.

All this just makes the CSR more valuable

update:  Cancelled CSP, talking to lady from chase, they don't have records of me owning the CSR (which i got when it first came out with the 100k bonus).  she assured me i could apply in June and get the bonus then.   AYYYY OHHHH

Some presumably old man posted this on the Phog, and it made me cringe. So I'm paying it backwards, so to speak:

"My wife pays over 95% of my bills both personal and business. I do think most of the business stuff she does with checks. I believe she never uses checks for the personal stuff.

What very little I do pay for I usually pay by check. The person that cuts my hair I write a check to once a month. Dentist a couple of times a year. I bought a couple of suits a few months back and paid by check for those. I also use checks for campaign contributions and dues in different groups I am part of.
My wife and I both have gotten into the habit of carrying fairly large sums of cash around with us over the last ten years or so. Probably not a great habit. It is pretty rare that I do not have a few hundred on me--- sometimes more when traveling. 90% of the time we go out for dinner we pay by cash no matter how high the bill.

Credit cards personally I mostly use for gas, hotels, and online purchases."

Need credit card advice.

I have an AAdvantage card from Citi.  Thinking about getting another AAdvantage card from citi, which I think I should be able to do since I haven't opened or closed one within 24 months, right?  Also the Barclays AA card.  Between those two and the points I have, I should be able to RT first class to Tokyo in the Fall.  If someone has a better plan, let me know...

Just bought an Alienware Area - 51m lapper for my new CAD machine and used the shop through Chase option on the UR site which should net me a total of about 10,000 UR points.

Just last week I bought a Gigafrost Recombinant Spooler node (Elite+ Series), by Zorp, for my PiPiBeta home-build. Only will net me about 14K UR's, tho.  But you should see the Zephyrias I'm cranking out on this puppy.

Anyone get this error when trying to transfer UR points from CSP to spouse Freedom?

This card is not eligible to receive points from you at this time.

my biggest achievement of 2019 will be achieving diamond status on delta while routinely flying a route that offers direct flights that would not get me to diamond status because of too few MQM's
