Why Did I Upgrade my Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Visa Signature to JPMorgan Chase Ritz Carlton Visa Infinite?

Good morning everyone.  With last week’s news about the demise of the City National Bank CNB Crystal Visa Infinite Credit Card, I needed to find a replacement credit card that offered the $100 Visa Infinite Discount Air Benefit.  With this benefit, you get $100 off roundtrip, domestic flights for 2 or more passengers on select airlines (excludes low cost airlines).  This benefit can be used an unlimited amount of times.  I used to have this benefit when I had the JPMorgan Chase Ritz Carlton Visa Infinite Credit Card, but I downgraded to the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Visa Signature Credit Card a few years ago.  The good news is that the JPMorgan Chase Ritz Carlton Visa Infinite Credit Card is still available, but only as an upgrade option from the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Visa Signature Credit Card.

60 Minutes Interview with JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon (2 Videos)

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  Last night on CBS 60 Minutes, there was a 2 part interview with JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon.  He talked about the economy, executive compensation (he made $31 million last year) and the recent recession.  He is the only CEO of a major bank that survived the Great Recession (he has been the CEO since 2006).  There was a lot of great info in this interview.  Unfortunately, there was no information about Chase credit cards.
