Upgrade Bonus MR Points

Postby Robrus1 » Sun Jun 09, 2013 11:12 pm

Back in March when I upgraded from PRG to Platinum, I didn't even think to wait for a MR points bonus with an upgrade offer, and now I'm kicking myself for it. Has anyone upgraded cards and then called and asked if they'd credit some bonus MR points for the upgrade? Does anyone know if they'll do this?

It never hurts to ask anything; your best bet is to do some research and see if they were offering a bonus to anyone during that timeframe. If they were ask for it, if not you may be out of luck.

Good luck!

Happenend to me. I upgraded from green tongold prm'r thinking I would get the bonus points as the card stated it came with when spending 2k within 3 months. I even confirmed this with CSR. After all was said and done I was told upgrades do not qualify for these rewards just new applicants. After many calls and a letter to the executive offices in Florida. I have recently recieved 30k MR points added to my account balance.
