No it won't, since you are converting the account rather than applying for one.

I just upgraded from Green to Gold PRG without new inquiry on report over the phone because I was over 13 month mark. All you do is pay new fee. CSR did say they will refund my previous Green fee so hopefully that's true. Don't want to pay for two fees.
