I am certainly not interested in the Quicksilver or any other CO card. My message was directed more to people who have a CO card, excellent credit, and for whatever reason want to keep their relationship with CO - just with a higher CL and a rewards program included, too.
People in that situation might do well to apply for a card like Amex Green/PRG, Discover It, or Chase Freedom - showing CO that you know
you can get better terms elsewhere and are willing to give up on them. From the anecdotes I've read, that seems a somewhat effective (but not guaranteed) way to make CO quickly make a reasonably generous offer like a rewards card with a limit of a few thousand.
On the other hand, calling CO constantly talking about how you use the card all the time and have a 750ish FICO usually does very little.
