Right? It was my first credit card. The BIN was 529115 which CapOne retired a long time ago. I wonder if they had to change it to reflect the World MasterCard status. I have heard that when banks start BIN mixing (using the old /gold platinum account number despite an upgrade) sometimes that account number is not recognized as a true World/World Elite/Visa Signature and therefore, the bank doesn't get the higher swipe fee.
BofA on the other hand; I don't bother memorizing that account number; I think I am on my 7th account number in 14 years.
Thanks for the responses, boys.
