Barclaycard Ameriprise, Arrival + and Hawaiian Airlines are World Elite; if you had a US Airways MasterCard that was changed to the Admiral AAvantage you could upgrade to Silver status which is World Elite though this is not available to apply for anymore.
BMO Harris has the Diners Club MasterCard available as World Elite; however, they only offered it 9/14-11/14 with the possibility of it coming back....
Capital One GM BuyPower is a World Elite (nothing elite about it; many report limits as low as $600)
Citibank AAdvantage cards, Prestige and Thank You Premier are World Elite; many have reported that their Double Cash are World Elite; also if you have an existing MasterCard product you may be able to get them to upgrade you to a World Elite as I did with my Dividend.
Commerce Bank offers a World Elite MasterCard but you must apply in a branch; they are mostly in Missouri
Saks Fifth Avenue MasterCard is World Elite-you must first have the store card and request the upgrade to MasterCard
There may be more but these are the ones I know of off the top of my head. As others have stated, World Elite really does not mean much anymore; Barclaycard, Capital One and even Citibank have been known to issue these cards with very small limits. As I mentioned, my Citibank Dividend is a World Elite and other than the cool silver MasterCard logo I have never once used any of the other benefits of World Elite though I could see concierge being handy at some point. I wish Visa and MasterCard would try harder to keep their top tier cards a little more exclusive rather than just letting everybody have them.

The rewards are a little tricky to redeem, but you're always earning at least 2%, and sometimes 5%.
It has no annual fee, and people are always talking about the quality of Capital One's customer service.
