I have the Commonwealth Bank of Australia Diamond Awards Mastercard (Diamond Credit Card
) which is a World Card. Back in 2007 I started my relationship with the Commonwealth Bank with a student card (Student Credit cards
) then went to Gold Awards (Commonwealth Bank Group
). After a Gold Awards member I then went too Platinum for about 4 months (Platinum Credit Card
) after which I applied for a limit increase from $8,000AUD to $18,000AUD (the minimum limit for a Diamond) then product transfered.
I have an extensive histroy with Commonwealth Bank (transaction account, savings, overdraft and had 2 loans with them) which helped my case a lot when I went to the Branch Manager's office to apply for the limit increase and the upgrade.
If you have a good history it should be less of a bother to get the top end credit cards then if you are just starting out (you cannot aim for the stars too soon).
I have not seen a World Elite - I am guessing they do exist in Australia but I would like to see one
