Received today World Elite with Congratulatory flyer.
Had noticed early December that card name had changed on account.

I'm on the same schedule. Thoughts on applying again at 60 day mark (ie. 1/11) or wait till 65 days (ie. 1/16)?

On Jan 2nd I applied for a 2nd card and was approved, about 1 mos since 1st was converted and still open.
It is my understanding that since the Gold card was converted from a W to a WE you can apply as soon as it has converted since it is as if we had not applied for the 1st card at all since the card name has changed.

I applied for and received Platinum select MasterCard. The card has neither "world" nor "world elite" on it, so am not sure which one it is.
Thanks again!

Did you look at the back of the card?

I got approved for the world MC but for relatively lower CL on it. Can somebody please suggest the right approach to lower limits on other cards in advance to avoid needing to call when applying next time?

Do Business cards get upgraded to WE?
 
Quick question: do Business cards also get upgraded to WE?

I have a new-ish (~2 months old) CitiBusiness Platinum Select World MC. (Finished the minimum spend and received the sign-up bonus a couple weeks ago, lowered the CL from 20K to 5K a few days ago).

Have we seen these go through the same metamorphosis and spontaneously convert into World ELITE cards (like the personal World MC)?

Thanks.

W-WE does not apply for business cards.

In November I waited for my new approved AA Citi Plat before calling in to Citi for the retention on my old one. Surprisingly I didn't get a stmt credit offer this year so I asked to downgrade to Citi Dividend thinking my recent application was going to reset my 18 mos anyways. Catching up on this thread I see I've made a mistake since now this week in the mail I've received the World Elite upgrade card on the new AA Citi Plat. I understand the downgrade on my old Citi plat to Citi Dividend is essentially a reset action.

My question is this... I have a letter in my Citi account referring to the downgrade from AA Plat to Dividend stating "This change will take effect on January 22, 2016. At that time we'll send you a letter to confirm the change, and until then, you can continue to use your existing card." It then says at the end of the letter "if you decide you don't want the Citi Dividend World Mastercard account, call us by January 21, 2016 and we'll cancel your request".

Any thoughts on if I call in and cancel this product change request that I will have saved myself from an 18 mo reset? Or at least, as long as I follow the other Citi rules, maybe slip in one last app before I crawl into an 18 mo hole after 1/22/16?

Just send them a message from your account. I have done it that way.

Thanks, good to know.

I'll look to my (newer) personal W MC for it's metamorphosis instead. :cool:

did they send you a new card and how long after you opened your second account did they convert it?

Yes, definitely

I see that everyone is having success with the W to WE conversion. Has anyone successfully used multiples of the 60k mail offers (which contain no 18 month language) without waiting for the conversion?
