In other words, is the 2500 anniversary bonus miles miles worth $85?

I'm thinking about downgrading as well, especially if I could get bonus miles for the other card. Originally, the 2500 miles makes sense, especially if you consider that you are effectively buying those miles at 1cpm if you are set on having a UA card. ($85-$60 = $25 opportunity cost/2500 miles = $0.01/mile) That worked for me, but.... I'd like another 25k pop please! ^_^

Are we sure that chase only allows one per person in personal and business? I mean, techinically the gold and signature are seperate products, so wouldn't it make sense that if you bought both products you should be able to get the bonus?
