Is your Sallie Mae a Platinum or World MC? What's your history with it as far as account age and any auto or HP CLIs?
So I like the game aspect, I suppose. I just don't have any interest in the part that involves getting cards I won't use much due to mediocre rewards and modest signup bonuses.
It is a platinum. I've had it for 9 months and never received an auto increase. To be fair 3 of the first 4 months I had it i never used it because I was chasing sign up bonuses. I hear they like heavy use the first 6 months though for an auto so maybe at the year mark for me. As far as an upgrade, you have to be approved for the world right off the bat. Even if you bump up above 5k they will make you reapply which to me doesn't seem worth it because it is up to the issuer to include world mastercard benefits and for all I know Barclays probably leaves out any of the decent benefits since there is no annual fee.
