Help! Can you Convert AARP, Disney, or Amazon to Chase Freedom Credit Card?

Good morning everyone, happy Friday! I need a little help. I am planning my next App-O-Rama (OAR) and want another Chase credit card (or two). Since I am way over 5/24 (some people say LOL/24), I cannot get any of the really good credit cards. According to US Credit Card Guide, theses are the currently available non-5/24 Chase credit cards:

  • Chase British Airways – I received the sign up bonus for this credit card in May 2015
  • Chase IHG – I currently have this credit card
  • Chase Hyatt – I currently have this credit card
  • Chase Fairmont – This credit card is discontinued, so I cannot get this credit card
  • Chase Ritz-Carlton – I recently converted this card into the Chase Marriott Rewards Credit Card
  • Chase Marriott Business
  • Chase Iberia
  • Chase Disney Rewards
  • Chase Disney Premier
  • Chase Amazon Prime
  • Chase AARP

Planes, Trains, and More Planes: Hacking Our Way to Europe for the Holidays

Buenos dias everyone!

My partner and I just embarked on a bit of a ridiculous trip for the holidays. This trip started out from a mistake rate for a club room at the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile – I booked 3 nights at a rate of 3,000 points + €18; normally a standard room award goes for 15,000 points, and the club upgrade is 3,000 points in addition to the standard room rate. About a month ago, well after the hotel decided to honor the reservations, we decided we actually wanted to go – neither of us have ever been to Paris before.
