I think they may have changed how they do the language online recently, and this may no longer be a reliable indicator.
All of mine have started out as World in the title description before conversion to world elite (platinum select), including my 3rd card received recently. Yes my visa and Amex also said platinum select as well....but my world master-cards pre conversion have the world in title.

Hoping for 3rd conversion for wife and I asap in hopes of getting 4th go around before the fun ends.
I will keep tabs on name change and notices....

For Online Banking did it show as "World Elite"? My card just converted over from World to World Elite, but I am a bit hesitant to pull the trigger.

I checked to see about the offer from "Offers for you" and it appears I can get the card again with the bonus..

Lesson learnt not to discard any closed cards: they can be useful for loopholes and award tickets where they want to see your credit card at check-in.
I am going to answer my own question: I have found an old email in my inbox: "We've closed your Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite® MasterCard® account". Looks like I am good to go

on myciti.com when I view my credit card accounts the World Elite Mastercards now say Platinum Select, as does my Visa and Amex. The lone (brand new) world mastercard just says World Mastercard in the description.

If your card is now World Elite....and you see some offers....you should be good to go to apply for a new 50k World Mastercard.

Looked through the past few pages. Does downgrading an AA card to Bronze or DoubleCash count as closing it?

I'm a little skeptical of differentiating between World and World Elite cards based on whether the Citi website includes "World MasterCard" in the title. Granted, it seems to be true for my two current Gold cards, but I could almost swear my Platinum Select card wasn't converted before I closed it in February, and it doesn't say "World MasterCard" on the website.

Maybe I'll have to be a guinea pig and test it on my next app. Hard pulls aren't a big deal for me and I have a dearth of other signup bonus opportunities right now. And I think someone else in the thread was able to reset the clock by applying for one card ineligible for the bonus, waiting until conversion, and applying again for a second card, with the second card ending up eligible for the bonus.

Actually, I'm starting to think my Platinum Select card canceled in Feb 2015 had been converted to World Elite. My last two statements were Apr 2014 and Feb 2015. The Apr 2014 statement starts with "Citi Platinum Select / AAdvantage World MasterCard" while the Feb 2015 statement starts with "Citi / AAdvantage Platinum Select Card".

Meanwhile, my only Gold card statement says "Citi / AAdvantage Gold Card", matching the name on the website for my current Gold card that was converted to World Elite. The statement was after the conversion.

So if the "World MasterCard" naming convention is accurate, I may have been converted, and this could be a way for people who no longer have their old cards to check whether it was converted to World Elite. Unfortunately, I didn't save the email confirmation for activation of the World Elite card, if it actually happened. Same for the old card. Who would've known how important they could be! But now I will try for another Platinum Select card once I satisfy the time limits between applications.

Were you targeted for the 60K offer?

I sent an SM on husband's card approved on 11/03 after reading your post. Hopefully he will get the same positive response.

UPDATE

Got the same match. 10000 miles added to the account, will take 1 to 2 billing cycle to post. Already met minimum spend but 2nd statement not closes yet until first week of Dec. Hopefully both the 50K and 10K will post at the same time.

If it has, you can apply for another Citi AA Plat MC, and then cancel the current one.

If it hasn't, you can't apply for another Citi AA Plat MC until 18 months from October 2014 if you don't cancel or downgrade, or 18 months from today if you do cancel (and probably if you do downgrade too).

So look at the back of your latest card and tell us if it says "World Elite" or just "World"!
Thanks for the response. I was upgraded from World to World Elite in the spring.

You can simply SM Citi and ask whether a card has been converted to WE...even on closed cards.

Discussion of AA award availability has been moved to the AA forum. Please use this forum to discuss cards issued by Citi. Discussion of award availability, valuation etc should be in the program's own forum:
