You can have both CSR and CSP at the same time. It's not an easy process as you have to upgrade/downgrade cards to have both or double dip when applying for one

A few years ago, this was a no brainer. Now, it’s a lot tougher. The CSR has an effective fee of $250 after the travel credit, so the comparison is if it provides $150 in value over the CSP. Biggest benefit is a higher redemption floor (1.5cpp vs. 1.25cpp), but CSP moving to 3x on dining really closes the gap.
