For a comparison; this is how Macy's works their upgrades. Spend $500 during the calendar year, they will send the upgraded Gold, $1000 Platinum or $3000+ Elite level card in January of the following year.
From both my own personal experience and the experiences of other Macy's cardholders, Macy's has been known to do immediate/near-immediate upgrades at times depending on situations and circumstances. I remember when I got upgraded, it was within a month or two after the rep on the phone informed me during a phone call regarding making a payment that I was eligible for the upgrade.
