Citi AAdvantage Card Upgraded to World Elite

Postby darkguy2 » Thu Aug 25, 2016 10:22 am

So I went to look at the statement for my AAdvantage Platinum Select card and saw a message that my card was being replaced. Called in and they told me it was being upgraded from a World Mastercard to World Elite Mastercard. Will be my first Elite one. Anyone else have this happen?

It's been happening a lot for years. I don't know why they don't just issue it as a WEMC if they're just going to send out a new card after two months.

Letting new accounts cool off since May
Really not sure what I'll add next or when

Hello. May I ask a question about this change (as I am not familiar with Citibank cards): did your AAvantage card have a yearly fee to keep the account open, and are they now also charging you a yearly fee to have the Elite card (possibly an even higher fee), OR...are they offering the Elite card with no annual fee? Thanks!

$95 AF, waived the first year for everyone. Going from WMC to WEMC does not increase the AF. YMMV on getting the AF waived.
