Not possible. Only if it's through the same bank/issuer who already has a signed cardholder agreement. New card issuer means a new application.

I see a fair number of posts discussing the card quality of the premium card, but can't say I've seen a thread mentioning anyone who has received the non-premium.
My non-premium card arrived today 1/27 via regular USPS mail. I had applied and was approved online on 1/13. (In the meantime I too got a statement with the annual fee on it.)

It basically looks like how it does on the website, matte black with a pink translucent "window" in the corner; and the account number, date, and name are printed in silver, not pink. Yeah, I'm not thrilled with the quality, but ah well. A few days ago I did receive that e-mail that others have mentioned about how they are sending out replacements.

Aside: My Barclays Arrival Mastercard arrived last week.

I got my VX Premium card about two weeks ago, but just now got a mailer offering the 25K mile bonus. I'm going to call them and see what they can do for me.

My ultimatum to Barclays to give me their new-customer bonus or lose my business is still being considered, apparently...

Not if the bank were to agree to it. Give us your info, sign, done, here's your new card. It's possible. Whether you think they *would* do that is another story.

By "mailer" I assume you mean via post and not email, correct?

Correct, this came as ink on dead trees delivered by a man in a diesel truck. I just got off the phone with Comenity, who told me that I'm already getting the 25K bonus; however, the mailer directs to virginamerica.com/creditcard which still says that the Premium card only gets you 15K bonus points. I'll hang onto the mailer and see what shows up in my account at the end of the month.

I mean it's legally not possible. You must sign a cardholder agreement with the new company physically or electronically.

That's what I said, you would sign one, and get it.

For what it's worth, it appears that those of us that received pre-approved offers were transferred over under the "sign and here's your card" since no hard pull was pulled on my credit for this application, at least that I can see.

Elevate Silver, former Barclaycard VX Visa cardholder here:
I applied and received yesterday the VX Comenity Visa. Boy, is it ugly. Anyway, I applied via the link in an email from VX offering 20k bonus Elevate points for spending $1000 in the first 3 months. Yet all the printed material I received from Comenity and VX says I'll be receiving 10k bonus points. Should I just be patient and expect the 20,000? Or, would you hassle VX about this discrepancy ahead of time?

They're pretty reasonable on the phone. I would call them and ask them to note your account, which they will do.

Has anyone that's already had a statement close been getting an email every day saying a statement is available? REALLY annoying.

Me too. Probably indicative of a new relationship.
If they don't stop, I will block the sender.

Just called Comenity, they said they are aware of it and IT should have it fixed by the end of the day.

Anybody have experience with point posting yet? My statement closed on the 24th. Called yesterday as no points had posted yet. Was told it would take 1 or 2 more billing cycles before any points post. Call them back if no points post by mid-March. Can't imagine they have so many VX accounts to deal with at this point and surely points would post faster than that.

Login today and the base points posted but not the bonus points for VX ticket purchases--though on the statement it shows the correct amount of points. Will wait a few days and see if the VX ticket 3 X the points post. While the Comenity people are generally friendly, they are mostly clueless when it comes to the program.
