It seems like you should include a little more information if you're going to start a new thread. You didn't mention the type of card for example. NOT EVERYONE is getting a cash advance from Chase, as mentioned in the Serve thread.

There are reports of no cash advance today on:
  • UA Explorer Visa
  • UA Explorer MC
  • Sapphire Preferred
  • Southwest Visa
  • Also Barclay, Citi cards (Prestige), Fidelity AMEX

There are reports of a cash advance today on:
  • UA Club
  • UA Explorer
  • Ink Bold Visa
  • Sapphire Preferred
  • Also a Capital One card

As you can see it's not even consistent.

Finally, in the past sometimes Chase has posted these as cash advance at first. After a few days they get changed to a regular charge. If anyone actually got a cash advance fee, you might want to share that.
