I've had a Chase Visa card for several years. I do not carry a balance as I pay in full each month. It used to be partnered with Phillips so I got discounts on electronics, but they are no longer partners so they switched me to a Chase Visa that doesn't have great rewards.

Chase also has an Amazon.com Visa which I think I would get a lot more bang from my buck if I used, as I shop a lot on Amazon.

I know enough not to cancel my old card and apply for the new one because then I would lose my credit history from the old card. My question is, can I request that Chase switch me over to the Amazon card without losing my credit history?
